I released a football game during the world cup (Germany!! Hell yeah!!) only to find that I released it into a sea of a gazzillion other football games.
Looks like everyone and their grandma was in, wanting to make the most of the season.
I knew at that point, it was gonna be a disappointment, and indeed it was.
I always put a very high value at what's at stake for the first 30 days of an app's launch, and getting about 30k total downloads was indeed disappointing. (But Germany won, so that's something... and they won it with style! )
It did make some money, no doubt, but I believe soccer or football still owed me one more hit (had a previous game hit 3m downloads in the first 30 days!).
It also was an opportunity to gain valuable lesson in market research and timing. We gotta always look at the positive eh?
So here it is, a football game from the goalkeeper's point of view. Released about a day ago, and sitting pretty at #171 in new sports game category after about 24h.
Please do download it to help me gain some rankings. You guys rock!
And I think I will share fully how the game performs in terms of downloads, rankings as well as money generation, if there is any interest. It made a whopping $0.30 from day one with Heyzap!!
So, if you wanna know how it performs , or what I did / am doing to promote it, or how was that 3m downloads made back in March, or about the ad networks, do leave a comment, or drop me an email.
Remember to download the game and show some love!
Thank you for the support!
PS... again.. thanks for the support :D
