I wanted to get some feedback from the community about a new integration/feature I’m planning to add to Flowlab. It’s a new type of Ad network but the idea is that the ads will be for the purpose of building up your player base without spending vast amounts of money buying ads for your game on networks like AdMob or whatever.
In Flowlab, it would work similarly to how AdMob works now, but instead of displaying an ad for dentists or whatever, the ads would be for other games. In exchange for displaying these ads, the network will then display ads for your game.
In summary, it basically works like this:
You show ads for other games
In exchange, other games will show ads for yours
The ad network is called Adstronomic. It hasn’t launched yet, but I have been talking to those guys and I think it will be a cool option to have for people trying to get started with serious mobile game development. It’s not free, but it’s cheap compared to buying mobile ads, and if you sign up for their early access list you can get a $100 credit to try it out.
Anyway, I just wanted to create a topic to see what people thought about this idea, so let me know if you love it or hate it
I saw the conversation on discord where you first mentioned the partnership, and I believe that it’s quite a good idea for people wanting to take their game development to the next level. People who have made open betas of their games would benefit from this. (Starblast Finale free version for example).
I love this idea, it would be great! I’m not sure quite how this would work, but I would love to recommend some quality games from my ducat boys. So, in essence, my main verdict and query is: Great idea, can you customize whose games you can advertise?
I love this community building upcoming feature idea!
Thank you @grazer for sharing this on Discord and thank you guys for your interest in Adstronomic!
Adstronomic empowers Mobile Game Developers to maximize user acquisition with limited budget. We make it possible through our an AI-powered ad network that cross-promotes mobile apps and our unique subscription-based pricing model.
If you guys find it difficult to promote your mobile game (marketing budget, knowledge or any other reasons) and acquire users, then Adstronomic can be a great choice.
Within 3 to 6 months, you will gain users and data.
After this period, you should be able to monetize.
You can use the money earned to invest in a classic App Marketing solution (Google or Facebook Ads) to keep scale your user acquisition and go to the moon!
We currently offer 100$ credit to people who join the waitlist.
You could use it as soon as you are ready to launch a campaign!
No worries @Cuts_ups!
However, now that you have everything you need to develop, release and grow a mobile game, maybe it’s time to take it more seriously.
Feel free to get on the waitlist anyway, maybe the $100 credit will come in handy one day!
Hey @thebrickccentric - this is a new company & ad network. I don’t think there are any success stories to point to since it hasn’t actually launched yet.
Personally I don’t think it’s any type of scam or I wouldn’t be posting about it or integrating it into Flowlab - but I’m not trying to convince anyone to sign up if they aren’t comfortable for any reason.
Glad to read that!
To answer your question regarding the filtering of ads displayed in your app, this feature isn’t in our roadmap.
The goal is to generate as much volume and therefore downloads as possible. Our ad server tracks what works and what doesn’t work for your application and improves as it goes along.
