The Agents of Discovery team can design custom signage for you! Consider sizing and placement of signage. These should be placed in high-traffic areas where people will be able to see them! Lynn Canyon Park in Vancouver, Canada has had great success with their outdoor signage pictured below!
We would recommend dedicating a web page or section of your website to promoting your Agents of Discovery Mission. Cradle of Forestry in America’s web page is a great example of useful information Players might need to get started with your Mission. Some ideas for promotional content you can include on your website:
If you offer free visitor WiFi at your site, you can promote Agents of Discovery and your Mission on the WiFi landing page (thereby creating visibility for every visitor who logs-on to your WiFi). This has been a very successful approach with Los Angeles Parks and Forest Service sites in the U.S. through Oh Ranger WiFi.
Social Media is a powerful way to promote your Mission. You can easily encourage user engagement by creating your own hashtag and encouraging players to use #AoDiscovery and/or #WeAreAgentsofDiscovery. If you would like, we can provide pre-written social media posts you can easily copy and paste to promote your Agents of Discovery Mission. For further inquiries about social media promotion, please contact [email protected] or [email protected].

Having a real world incentive for players to complete your Mission is a great value addition. Incentives can be something small or big – you can decide!
