Brands struggle to get our attention through the likes of WhatsApp, Facebook & YouTube, but what about games? Not with annoying advertising - but real brand engagement. This is the question that inspired Matt, after years of conducting customer research for clients such as O2 & Avios, to develop a platform offering brand-immersive games that will reward players with real products & prizes.
Its team has researched, built the backend, the app (play Cuddledry's game now), built partnerships, beta tested with 3 brands & are ready to ramp up & sell.
The market is ready for Joyall:
- Brands need new ways to engage customers, who no longer go in store & swipe past social media posts
- Gamification is becoming a priority for loyalty programmes
- Digital media spend is expected to grow from $407Bn to $753Bn by 2026
- Joyall is finalists in this year’s International Loyalty Awards
We’ve developed a fair pricing model. Once Launched, it will be free to players, & brands only pay 1p per player per day, plus the cost of the rewards. As well as games, Joyall aims to gamify brand content, providing customers with more ways to earn rewards whilst the brand collects valuable data insights.
With your support & investment, Joyall can build up its marketing, sales & support team to bring on large brands.
This is the company's second raise with a pre-seed round in 2021, raising £92.5K. Fuel Ventures leads the round.

As with any investment, investing in Joyall carries a level of risk. Overall, based on the key risks highlighted below, the degree of risk associated with an investment in Joyall is higher than in a company that's trading on a public market.
Joyall is at one of the earliest stages of the business lifecycle, and the failure rate of companies at that stage is usually much higher than those at a later stage.
The number of transactions in shares of private companies is usually significantly lower than in public companies, typically resulting in it taking longer to sell shares in private companies at a price that is at least equal to the price that the shares were bought at. Accordingly, the Joyall investment opportunity is considered to be higher risk than more liquid companies.
