Most brands currently use Roblox for marketing, but monetization is the next frontier.
By writing lots of research-driven articles about how brands are leveraging Roblox for growth across games, integrations, and UGC, I’ve been able to connect with lots of smart and talented people around the world. I often get asked what it is exactly I do, which means I need to do a better job of explaining my Metaverse Marcom consulting business and how I work with brands. So I'm going to do that here.
Roblox continues to attract considerable attention as a powerful platform for brands to connect with a young and engaged global audience (66 million daily active users), especially to raise brand awareness. But for certain consumer brands, Roblox also offers an exciting and potentially lucrative way to drive monetization (the company generated $2.2 billion in revenue in 2022).
To help brands capitalize on this tremendous opportunity, my company Metaverse Marcom offers a range of comprehensive services focused on helping entertainment brands drive revenue via the sale of Roblox UGC virtual items.
What is Metaverse Marcom?

With a unique blend of strategic guidance and end-to-end campaign execution, we empower brands to launch official branded UGC virtual items, optimize their offerings, and maximize revenue.
Our Services: UGC Monetization Expertise
We offer strategic guidance on monetizing Roblox through official branded UGC virtual items.

Success Story: Generating Revenue and Reach
We have successfully collaborated with top brands such as Hot Topic, who brought in their partners Paramount and Universal, to launch officially licensed UGC items on Roblox. Our expertise in working with talented Roblox UGC designers and in utilizing data & analytics resulted in substantial sales revenue, widespread item sales, and extensive customer reach.

Disclaimer: Not every consumer brand should use Roblox UGC for monetization. Brands that make the most sense are those that have existing fan bases, ideally those who are young and already spend time and money on Roblox.
