    Episode 16; User Acquisition Advise from Games Marketing Guru himself; Oliver Kern

    In this episode I get to talk to Oliver Kern of Target Gamers. We talk about user acquisition in general, but also about how to adjust your user acquisition in games during this Covid-19 period and after the virus. Can and will consumer, read gamers, still be able to spend as much as before. How can you predict LTV, lifetime value? What can we expect today and later this year from other metrixs like retention, cost per install, CPM/advertising for your game and in your game.

    I belief this is extra interesting for indie game developers, who might struggle with the current situation, but also gaming companies in general. Hope you like this and please send this also to other people in gaming.

    Episode 14; What will Covid-19 Corona Virus do with the Games Industry 2020-2022?

    In this episode I am asking a few questions besides my take on what might happen in the games industry! I am inviting you to come and brainstorm. Let other people know, that I am trying to get something going here, where we, as a gaming industry, compare notes/thoughts/ideas. What can we expect from ourselves, the consumer and more. Check the question below and give me your input in the comments.

    1. Are we going to see more revenues in second part of 2020;

    2. Or will this decline when people have to get back at work;

    3. Will the consumer get fincialy hit by the Corona Virus and will this have an effect on gaming revenues;

    4. Big esports companies are seeing digital revenues going up, but event and merchandise revenues going down;

    5. Were these esports companies more dependable on offline revenues then online revenues?

    6. If we all think people will have less to spend then the following questions;

    6.1; Are you launching massively all together in second half year 2020

    6.2; Are the CPI's going to be too high then

    6.3; Are the lifetime revenues being surpressed by financial difficulties of gaming audience

    6.4; Will people stick to their old love instead of trying another game

    7. Just a thoughts; end of 2020 entrance tickets for esports events will be too expensive!

    Episode 11 Interview with Oscar Clark, Former Evangelist for Papaya Mobile, Applifier and Unity Technologies

    Episode 11 Interview with Oscar Clark, Former Evangelist for Papaya Mobile, Applifier and Unity Technologies

    I did interview Oscar Clark, who didnt want to tell me his age! In a way he did.

    The whole interview you can listen here. It was a magical an hour. I just couldnt stop him and that is the format! Get industry people to talk, explain, share their vision, war stories, the do’s & don’t’s and more.

    So some topics that we touched;


    Who is Oscar and what is he doing?
    He is mentioning a new company, but cannot reveal yet the details, but something he is!
    Which events should we attend?
    Why did Finland take a leading role?
    How is Oscar looking at the user acquisition battle out there?
    What advise can he give to young people that want to get started in games?
    and more!

    Some background of Oscar? Sure!

    Oscar Clark is consultant specializing in project-based Executive Production. A pioneer in social games services since 1998, he was Vision Lead for British Telecom’s Wireplay, one of the first online games communities, Global Lead for Digital Games at Hutchison Whampoa (3UK) and Home Architect for PlayStation®Home. He has an obsession with understanding the juxtaposition of game design, monetisation and social engagement and how to apply that to give games projects the best chance in the market whether that is PC, Console, or Online but particularly on Mobile.

    His ability to digest and communicate led to him becoming an Evangelist for Papaya Mobile, Applifier and Unity Technologies; and he has become one of the most connected people in games. As a consultant he looks at game design, monetization, business modelling, and social design. His first book, “Games As A Service – How Free To Play Design Can Make Better Games” was published by Focal Press and he is a contributing author for the “Mobile Developer’s Guide To The Galaxy” published by www.enough.de. Oscar is also a mentor for GameFounders and an ambassador for the gamer’s charity SpecialEffect (https://www.specialeffect.org.uk/).

    I hope you like the interview and if you like to share it with your gaming friends, then I would appreciate it so much!! AND; listen to more episodes of PodcastGameConsultant.com.
