The London mobile game development community converged on The Shooting Star for Chartboost Connect (CBC) London last week.After chowing down on pies and knocking back a couple cask ales, the packed crowd turned their attention toward my talk on mobile game user acquisition tips. In particular, here?s what my conversation focused on:

  • ASO: I kicked off my talk explaining what App Store Optimization (ASO) is. I broke down the important components to optimize for in a mobile game?s app store landing page to increase visibility in app store search results, including app name, app icon, app screenshots, app ratings and reviews, app description and app keywords.
  • Virality: Creativity isn?t dead, long live guerilla marketing! There?s still plenty of affordable marketing strategies to boost your mobile game?s virality. Nothing beats an old-fashioned party. Host a launch party, inviting friends, family and loved ones. Simply require for entry that they give your mobile game a rating and review.
  • Retention: Calculating user lifetime value (LTV) for a mobile game may seem like rocket science to some. Focusing on the ?lifetime? portion of LTV leads us to retention. I covered methods to increase retention thus improving your mobile game?s LTV.
