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.
