Trying, again and again!

Note: this post is me promoting my new game to help it gain downloads, please do download it!

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!

Download here.

Cheers!
Bill

AppBucks Push and Icon Ads - Alternative to Airpush, Leadbolt, SendDroid and StartApp

We developers are always on the lookout for better monetisation options for our mobile apps. With the recent slow down on the mobile advertising scene after the December spending spree, people are starting to question the ad networks. The thing is, there IS a slow down across all networks. It is weird in that in 2012, my revenues kept growing in January and February. Well, it looks like advertisers are also getting savvier and better using their funds on ads. Let me introduce you to AppBucks (referral link).

StartApp Ads - Initial Review and Basic4Android Library

Hey ya all... I've just posted the Basic4Android library for StartApp (this is a referral link). You can get the B4A library here . StartApp is an icon ad network, and they pay on a per-installation basis. StartApp Registration - Get $25 Register for StartApp with my referral link  (click it, I know you want to!), and once your download hits 100 new installs, you'll get a bonus of $25 into your account, and yes, I'll get some bonus too. StartApp First Days Review Well, it looks pretty impressive. An app of mine, more popular in the US had about 157 downloads (users who opt-in for the icon ads) and made $2.51. While another app, with a more global distribution had 296 opt-ins and made $2.09 revenue. It looks like the performance of these opt-in based icon ads could match up to the notification ad format. Give it a go! Cheers! -Bill
