  1. Reveal-Based Marketing

Users are also enjoying a type of interactive marketing called revel-based marketing, in which marketers draw users in by creating a barrier that delays their ability to touch, see or hear something. This, in turn, excites customers and “invokes a strong desire for answers.” (

A couple examples of this type of interactive marketing include motion interactions and games. Motion interaction ads prompt your user to learn about promotions and discounts by moving, shaking, tilting, blinking, or jumping to find out more (to reveal).

Games too are a great way to grab attention. They offer promotions and discounts by requiring the user to scratch away, spin, or play a flash game before viewing a deal.
