“We used the Promote Your App system to promote our newest game, Cribbage Deluxe. It was an easy way to get installs for our app immediately after launch, helping us move into the New and rising list which led to even more visibility and installs. We see CPIs under $2 on average, which is a fraction of the cost of other platforms. In the past 6 months, we've seen a huge improvement in the quality of ads being served in our games. This is best reflected by our average eCPM, which has more than doubled in that time.”
