How do you make money and will you ever charge for this service?

Question from M.L (potential member)

Hi Emily,

sounds interesting. I’m about to sign up and check it out. My first question is’how do you make money?’ :) It’s not mentioned in your promo video. So do I have to pay after a while, or can I but extra ads?

Thanks and best regards, M.L.

Hi M.L,

Well first of all I’m glad you like what you see and look forward to having you on board. To answer your question directly. We have 2 plans to make money.
  1. We state on our front page and FAQ section that we keep a small percentage of ad credits from all users ourselves, this is the pay for the upkeep and costs pertaining to offering this free service. At the moment these credits are being circulated through a few of our very early members. These members were there from day one, who bought into the concept and have since then supported us by using our system in hundreds of their multi million time downloaded games. They have made enough games available from the very get go on all 4 of the major platforms to ensure we have enough inventory of games not to bore end users. Think of it as the chicken and egg scenario. We needed them even for the very first public member to signup and effectively use our service.
  2.  In the future whilst still keeping the free cross promotion banner exchange option available for anyone who would like to use it. We will introduce the option to sell a percentage of this inventory. It will be entirely up to our users if they would like to sell 0%, 10%, 20%, 60% or 100% of their inventory. Different developers have different aims and priorities and we have already been inundated with advertisers as well as our own members constantly inquiring if they can purchase ads from us. This demand is there due to the very high ctr and click to download ratio we generate, as we are a targeted games only network.
Hope that answers your concern.

Great Way to Loose What Users You Already Have

Question From: J.S. (potential member)
I already have my own private network referral service running.

 

I am however interested in learning more about your general cross promotion service.   From analyzing what you put up on your site it would seem your system is heavily skewed to popular games.  So small games with few users and slow growth would mostly just be showing other peoples games and not showing up elsewhere on the network with much promotion at all.   Which honestly as a small developer sounds like a great way to loose what users I do gain. Unless your service offers parity advertising (1 show of someone else’s advert == 1 show of mine) I can’t make the math work out how this would be a good investment for me and my company (we have shipped a dozen games this year alone.)

 

I’m interested in learning more about your service, but unless the math works out I will not be able to work with y’all.
The Answer:

Hi J.S,

We don’t consider any publisher small.. you never know when one of your games gets picked up by a stranger and shoots up the charts. We rather make peace with everyone :)

 

That said.. the 1:1 ratio of business is very much open to cheaters. We have a model that is very close to that in ratio but utilizes a 10:XX ratio. XX varies but is never more than 20%…often far less than this. We have 18 methods of checking for cheaters in our public network. We publicly do not discuss these 18 factors as these we consider trade secrets.

 

We offer all users the ability to convert their account into a Private Network by simply ticking one box. This way, you advertise no other members and only your own games within your games.

 

I don’t believe cross promotion is a bad thing, otherwise I would have not worked for MoreGamers.com for the past 11 years… Your users are not trapped inside of your game and are free to exit and uninstall your game whenever. Atleast with cross promotion you are giving yourself a fighting chance of directing those users onto another one of your games… or getting a new user in exchange from another one of our members…

 

Hope my answer disperses some of your worries regarding cross promotion.
