How the implementation of an ad monetization strategy led to 116% overall revenue growth

By teaming up with SuperScale, NimbleBit gained access to experts who audited their existing ad monetization and mediation stack. The audit highlighted three main areas of opportunity:

  • Ad Conversion: SuperScale introduced new ad placements with greater visibility leading to a much-improved conversion rate.
  • Ads/DAU (average ad views per daily active user): To boost ads/DAU, SuperScale designed ad placements where players were motivated to watch multiple rewarded videos per day.
  • Ad Mediation: To maximize eCPM, a new mediation stack was created along with new ad networks, optimized bidding and waterfall changes.
