Soccer Star: How to adapt one’s worldwide strategy in order to improve results

Soccer Star is a football game developed by the Spanish studio, Redvel Games. The game allows you to create your player and manage your entire career as you play the matches of a football season.


Addict Mobile started working with Soccer Star in June 2021 to increase the profitability of the user acquisition campaigns.






Most of Soccer Star’s revenue comes from in-app purchases and paid advertising views. The application is available in every country, which is why it is so important to develop a strategy that maximises the profitability of the application in each one. As a result, the Addict Mobile teams developed a multi-country strategy that is divides up into a number of phases and fulfils the criteria for being cost-effective in each of the geographic regions.




First of all, in order to make in-app purchases profitable, we are testing two types of optimisation on our campaigns:


– “value” (the value of the users’ purchase) which normally leads to a higher ROAS


– “purchase” (number of purchases made by users) that has more of an impact on maximising the campaign’s CPA


Then, in order to test all the countries and find those where the volume, and hence the profitability, can be maximised, we launch campaigns across a mix of geographical regions. Countries are grouped according to their similarities. For example, the test campaigns cover Latin America, the Middle East, the English-speaking countries, etc.


Then, in the final phase, we identify and keep only the best optimisations and the best countries (T1 countries), where we can maximise the volume, and we conduct unique campaigns in each one,  primarily the USA, UK, France, Germany, Spain, etc.


These decisions are important because all these countries have audiences with a high purchasing power. As a result, we can maximise the volume by increasing or decreasing the investments on each one, and get the highest ROAS.


On the other hand, we also retain all the Tier 2 and 3 countries, where the opportunities are favourable, but where it would be difficult to run unique campaigns. In order to get the best results from these countries, we conduct campaigns covering groups of geographical areas aimed at increasing the size of the audiences, to the point where the results obtained are equivalent to those of the best T1 campaigns.

Dating apps: What are the User Acquisition constraints?

Dating apps need acquisition to support their growth, revenue, and number of active users. Nevertheless, they are subject to constraints that are specific to this vertical.     Choosing a strategy   Before launching your campaigns, you need to think about the overall strategy for your app and your objectives:     – Gender distribution: Separate by gender and tailored content to make sure you can control the investment and, therefore, the recruitment needs for each gender.     – Objectives by gender and, therefore, adapted tracking: Make sure that the tracking on your MMP has been correctly tagged so you can track your performance in the best possible way, even if the events being tracked are different.     – Objectives by country: it is also important to analyze app awareness in each country and for each gender as this will particularly affect the types of campaigns launched and the distribution of investments.     – Investments according to seasonality: Dating apps are particularly affected by seasonality (vacations, back to school, weekends, Valentine’s Day, etc.).

Our creative best practices

A few months ago, we discussed the importance of creative in your mobile acquisition campaigns and how to find creative that works and positively impacts your performance. How do you achieve this goal? Here are our creative best practices:     Personalize the message according to the various targets     – The creatives must be tailored to each type of target audience.   – This is even more important as the arrival of iOS 14 has restricted targeting options. The creative is thus a different way of targeting.   – It is therefore crucial to understand your users’ motivations, needs and centers of interest. But also their fears, what stops them, what will make them hesitate to click.   – This reflection on users and the levers to make them move on to action must be conducted upstream in order to brief the creative teams in a relevant fashion and produce effective creatives without losing time.   – Be open to all types of tests, even the most daring, as no-one knows what may be effective and catchy.   For the Cityscoot campaign, personalization of creatives allowed for procuring a CPA => 30% above average.       For […]
