After building up a predictive user model, we prepared a multi-phase, scalable, modular campaign strategy that included different types of activations in order to achieve specific objectives of the different phases of the game and set up the analytics and dashboards for the campaign.
We elaborated media plans with different tactics per phase, audiences & GEOs with differentiated bidding strategies according to established KPIs.
We handled the creation, management, optimization and reporting of campaigns in biddable and non-biddable platforms such as: YouTube, Facebook, Google Search, Bing, Yandex, Tik Tok, Instagram and various website partnerships.
We’ve provided a custom version of ComboStrike’s Business Intelligence solution including campaign performance tracking with a live analytic dashboard, creative evaluation, support with Gamesight integration and assistance with GTM updates.
We developed influencer-focused, hands-on events to establish relationships with global content creators during the early stages of Bloodhunt’s development. The purpose of the engagement was to lay the foundations of the first Bloodhunt communities and provide additional reach to ‘first-looks’ of the game. Beyond that, we were able to gather feedback from the creators that assisted Sharkmob with introducing elements into the game that would make it more appealing to creators. In doing so, we took care of all elements of the engagement – from planning to outreach, negotiation, contracting, scheduling, content quality assurance, reporting, and everything in between.
