Black Friday is over! If your CPI rose during the weekend, it is normal this is directly connected to Black Friday.
Based on the data of all our campaigns on Facebook, CPI increased by 78% from November 22nd (last Sunday) to yesterday.

This is the consequence of two phenomena related to this very special weekend:
  • the sudden rise of the CPM.
  • the significant decrease of the install rate (CTR and CVR).

Increase of the CPM

The global CPM of November increased by 60% between November 1st and Black Friday. Good news is: it already started to decline, since Saturday.

The above graph diminishes the trend and doesn’t really picture the huge rise we can analyse looking at some countries individually.
In the main European countries, CPM reaches its highest level for 4 months or equals the peaks that were reached in the UK or in Germany.

Here are some figures (from November 22 to 27 / from November 1 to 27):
  • France : +4% / +90%
  • Germany: +57% / +49%
  • Italy : +26% / 142%
  • Spain: +39% / +100%
  • Belgium : +46% / +112%
  • United Kingdom : +13% / +109%
In the US and Canada, there is also a rise however it appears less significant because of the effect the Presidential race had on the market, discussed here.

Here are some figures (from November 22 to 27 / from November 4 to 27):
  • Canada : +24% / +23%
  • USA : +6% / +86%
 

Decrease of the install rate

The two ratios (CTR and CVR) that make up the install rate are diving in the last few days which can certainly be explained by the fact that people are seeing too many ads and are saturating a bit.

This is also why CPI remained high this weekend and might remain high for the beginning of the week despite the decrease of CPM. Install rate is not yet back to normal.

Soft launch: our tips to succeed this essential step in launching a mobile game (part 2)

In our first article we explained the importance of the soft launch for launching mobile games: identifying objectives and KPIs to track, determining a budget and time-line and, finally, developing ASO strategies to maximize conversion rates for your game. This second article focuses on which countries to choose for your soft launch, depending on your objectives and the insight you want to obtain.   Avoid audience burnout The choice of country for soft launching your app is crucial. In fact, we recommend that you avoid testing in the country in which you intend to officially market your game. This would be far from ideal. So you want to avoid launching the game in countries with the most qualified audiences.   If you attract a large number of qualified users to a game that they don’t like, which doesn’t motivate them or generate enough revenue, these players will be “unprofitable.” They simply won’t come back. Therefore, it’s best to delay releasing the game to this kind of audience until you have an advanced version.   This means avoiding the best geographical locations (= those generating the most revenue) which are best left untapped for the hard launch.  Furthermore, these locations, featuring […]
