CAMPAIGN OBJECTIVES

BitMango partnered with Leadbolt to identify and engage high-quality players, and scale up:

For many marketers of casual games on mobile, installs alone are not the primary goal of user acquisition. BitMango’s top priority is the quality of the new players coming in. Engagement – what the players do in the game – (e.g., reach a level or threshold, time spent playing), and Retention – how often they return to play – are the metrics that signal value, ROI and sustainable growth.     BitMango-Word-Cookies-casual-mobile-game-app
