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

Airpush Review - Where is the Promised CPM?

Hi all! How are you doing? Pretty tensed episode here on Airpush, and my opinion to the fact that they aren't playing fair to their developers.

Are you using Airpush? If you are, how's your CPM been doing? Ever since you started?

And if you are not, and you are planning to use it, what is attracting you to it?

Do you know the importance of the first 30 days on Google Play?

When releasing a new app, it is understood that it will rank far down the food chain. After all, your app is new and unproven just yet.

What Google has done on the Play store is that they have given new app an opportunity to live, a chance to get to a more respectable place in the world of the unknown, the Google Play ranking algorithm.

Which mobile advertising network should I use?

When it comes to monetising apps on the Android platform, mobile ads is one of the better options (IAP is probably the other alternative which is doing real good now).

A little while back, someone asked me what networks I use. Now, this is a list of networks I use. Not in all my apps though. And my ad network usage changes from time to time. So the following are just my choices, you MUST try out what works for you, as mileage really differs from developer to developer, and from app to app.


Preffered mobile advertising networks
The following are my preffered networks, and those that I would be implementing in my apps going forward (performance pending of course).

AppFloodUPDATE: I've dropped AppFlood till the issue here is sorted out.

AppFlood is really an awesome network. 100% of revenue goes to developers. The best payout system (net-anything, seriously!). Innovative ad formats, and a huge selection of ads make up only some of their good points. Their transparency on ads is aweso…
