First Day: 100 players & $7 revenue!

Burak Tokak @btk

24 hours after launching, Wordmoji game was able to pull a little over 100 unique players, which finished 200+ packs .

Here is details;
🎮 102 unique players
🕹️ 142 sessions
⌚ 00:10:50 avg session duration (which is very promising)
💸 470 int ads 173 rewarded ads requested (7 usd)
💭 147 packs are completed in total (every pack has 12 quizes)

There is int ads for every 4 quizes launched, and you can get +5 hints by watching rewarded ads.

Acquisition?
I will give rough percentages, because I had a simple landing page which I were using like a gateway, so I only have analytic of that landing page, not where the actual downloads came from.

I'm thinking about doing an ad campaign and I'm going to share results from it.

Also I would love it if you check the game out!

    Woah, what a great game! Super well coded, did you do it in React Native?

      Thank you William, yes with react native. What do you think an odd choice? :)

            Thks man, I actually checked out your app to see if there were a fancy animation that I could redo/showcase on my channel. Let me know if there is something potentially there that I missed ;-)

              After giving right answer to one quiz there is an animation using lottie, maybe that is what you are looking for :)

          Your target audience might be suitable for carbon ads. If you have enough volume in pageviews, try to apply them; https://www.carbonads.net/ (Join carbon link at top)

          Also, not sure if your content stays in the domain of codefund, but you might try it; https://codefund.io

            I think this platforms are for the sites where audiences are developers. My audience are entrepreneurs, startup enablers. Any suggestions?

            1. 1

              I would take a wild guess that your audience is %50 percent also developers, you yourself has a description of "A coder and Entrepreneur".

              You might need a native sponsor. I would create a list of companies, that aims to enable startups, by providing tools etc. (maybe like squarespace) and email them about your website.

              Overall your best choice seems to be adsense if you are looking for a network to be honest.

              1. 1

                Yes, even i was thinking of native ads. Thanks bro for the suggestions. I really appreciate your time.
