11 Consider Elasticity of Demand Price affects supply $0 to $0.001 is huge barrier $0.001 to $1 is easier Multiple low price purchases easier than fewer high price

12 True Fans make up just 4% of paying Papaya farm users… …but account for 60% of virtual good revenue

13 True Fans spend a greater proportion on consumables

14 Offer low cost Consumables Each with their own play/refresh profiles Pay with Grind only Pay with Cash only Limit access by Level Pay to skip Cool-down Nagging has an impact on long term loyalty

15 Applying The Theory Balance with different Durables Each with their own art style & impact on gameplay Encourage emergent play Grind or in-game currency Offset nagging of consumables

16 High spenders start small – but increase with time, peaking in 2 nd and 3 rd months

17 True Fans are happy to spend money in the long term Don't break the Free Player experience Takes 8-12 days to start paying Make it great to spend the first $1 Nurture one-time spenders & low spenders What are your Gateway purchases? Free players are your most important marketing channel. Keep them happy!

18 Monetization 3.0 Make buying goods part of the fun Collection Cash-in Grind relief goods Level limited items Purchase only items Special Level-clearance items

20 Applying The Theory Image SourceImage Source: Reward repeat play with Collections Each with an art style relevant to their source Encourage gifting/trade with friends Trade in for Consumables Trade-in for Unique Durables

23 In-game banners require large volumes of traffic Industry CTR for mobile ads just 0.79% in Average eCPM for mobile ads just $1.35 in Ads were only viable for mega hit titles such as Angry Birds. Players hate banners. Most titles make little revenue. 1: click-through-rates-for-mobile-ads-which-facebook-touts-mean-nothing/2/ 2: average-mobile-ecpm-of-usd137

24 Interstitials produce high CTRs. On AppFlood we saw a network average of 9% CTR in October. Top games over 30% CTR ECPMs on AppFlood Interstitials 12x higher than banners New ad formats a significant driver in game discovery New ad formats offer hope!

25 Why do these ad formats work? Offers content related to users current behavior Users constantly looking for Something else to do / try Games have definitive end points. Game Over, level reached etc. Prospect of free new games always appealing. Earn from churn!

26 Ad Optimization tips Show interstitials when game paused. Show interstitials after levels cleared. Show interstitials after new items are unlocked. Use interstitials after a game is left idle for more than a minute. Balance volume of ads with effect on retention

27 Try avoiding... Displaying more than one ad on a single page. Interrupting any active gameplay. Forcing users to click in order to complete tasks Misleading users or causing accidental clicks Poorly thought out ad placements can impact on retention

28 Word Drop Plus Oct 29 th – Nov 4th Average CTR 15.04%
