Monetization from a growth and UA perspective
Monetization solutions are the foundation to your business strategy, they determine how you grow your business, how much value you bring to customers, how you engage with them, and ultimately how successful you are.
The keynote will be covering the different ways to monetize your app for success, or, in Robert’s own words, it will be “a ‘from the trenches’ style comparison between the most common choices towards monetizing games with a particular focus on how to evaluate success from a growth and user acquisition perspective”.
Robert will be presenting how high level approaches in monetization, whether it be In-App Purchasing (IAP), In-app advertising (IAA), Real Money Games (RMG), subscriptions, NFT Games or Rewards, can fundamentally change user experience and will provide useful insights about the advantages of a sink and faucet conceptual framework.
At the end of this session, you’ll be taking away a few key messages:
- Innovation is possible: there are plenty of ways to approach monetization, anyone could figure out the next great one!
- Great content will find an audience: this keynote is a comparison of what toolbox to approach those audiences with.
- It’s always a grind, there are no shortcuts. We are lucky to have good data and lots of ways to approach monetization. Testing is a luxury not every industry has.
