Easter Eggs and Your Social Media Marketing Strategy

Back in the 1990s, game developers for the first Sony PlayStation and the Sega Saturn usually came up with different un-lockable content ranging from godlike powers, the ability to be invisible or simply new accessories for in-game characters.

One of the most popular Easter Eggs back then were the passkeys for the different iterations of our favorite web-spinning, wall-crawling hero.

Fast forward twenty years later and we feel that the same principles still hold water in the world of social media marketing in the Philippines. If you’re in the business of selling decorative cakes and pastries, we suggest you come up with novelty designs to mark important holidays.
