Key takeaways from our guide

Consistent data measurement can translate to revenue

The simplest way to capture and analyze a consistent baseline of data is to partner with a mobile measurement partner (MMP), like Kochava, and integrate its measurement software development kit (SDK). Kochava’s free version of this is called Free App Analytics®. By recording, analyzing, and adapting to the valuable data you measure, you can work toward increasing your return on investment (ROI) and maximizing the growth of new players.

Marketing doesn’t have to be expensive

You can save money by utilizing free strategic implements such as App Store Optimization (ASO) to help align the consumer’s focus with your app and be more relevant and discoverable in the app stores.

Finding a media partner

Finding a suitable advertising space for your game can be a daunting task. With thousands of companies to choose from the Kochava Media Index has made this task simpler by compiling all the information you need in one place. This free database allows you to access and filter data to fit the needs of your marketing strategy. It’s a good rule of thumb to start advertising with one platform and then build from there.

Mobile analytics and attribution

Before running your ad campaigns, get attribution in place to measure your success. Kochava’s attribution system will indicate which advertising channel, partner, campaign, creative, e.t.c., led to consumers downloading your app and playing your game. Analytics gives you insight into the performance of your mobile game by way of data compiled from both advertising campaigns and apps. By familiarizing yourself with Kochava’s Free App Analytics®, you’ll learn how to discover and interpret meaningful insights from your data.
