After joining Upsight in late September, Nir Amram quietly became one of the most interesting people in the office. A trained physicist, his career history includes everything from military cryptography to experiments with the world’s largest particle accelerator. As the newest member of our customer success team, Nir analyzes quantitative data to identify trends in user behaviour for our enterprise partners. We sat down to talk about why, after nearly 15 years in experimental physics, he decided to study people instead.

Going, going, gone! There’s nothing more appealing to your users than the opportunity to get a must-have item for a great deal. Promoting offers as a ‘one-time only’ deal allows you to price them attractively and give that extra push to persuade a purchase. However, it’s important to remember that these offers tend to lose their charm and become annoying if they repeatedly pop-up for your users, whether they’ve bought them or not.
Most publishers have accepted ads as part of their monetization strategy for their apps. In addition, they’ve come to realize that no single ad network is sufficient to fill all their ad requests, in every country, and deliver the highest value. With that realization, a publisher must decide how best to integrate multiple ad networks into their apps. The choices are somewhat limited. Either a publisher has to integrate ad networks separately and build logic to control which ad network gets called and when, or they use a third-party mediation platform.
A year after its release, Hutch was looking for ways of improving overall revenue in MMX Racing while offloading ad monetization to free up internal resources for game development. They were managing rewarded and non-rewarded ad placements with a variety of ad networks, adjusting their waterfalls based on daily performance, and keeping up with multiple SDK update cycles. When it came time to implement a strict blacklist, Hutch had to manage individual blacklists with every network and confirm they were all being adhered to. As time and resource costs increased, they pursued a new solution.
