THE CHALLENGE

Yodo1 wanted to increase daily revenue on their games and reduce the operational costs required to manage multiple networks.

Yodo1 already had an optimized monetization setup – they were managing a setup with 10 networks manually. This required a staff of 10+ people to manage their day-to-day revenue operations. Yodo1 needed an effective monetization solution to boost revenue for their hit game, Rodeo Stampede. Plus, they needed a solution to reduce the manual work.

THE SOLUTION

To achieve their goals, Yodo1 implemented MAX on all 35 of their game titles, including Rodeo Stampede.

Yodo1 moved their entire game catalog from their existing mediation solution to MAX. By using MAX’s rigorous A/B testing tool and enabling Facebook Audience Network as a bidder on Rodeo Stampede in addition to AppLovin and TapJoy, Yodo1 recognized an immediate 12% ARPDAU increase.

The Results

With more than 200 million downloads across iOS and Android, Rodeo Stampede is Yodo1’s most successful title to date.

THE CHARTS

IN SUMMARY

Higher revenue
