Niko went with the Hentai Heroes adult game offer because he knew it would be a hit among European audiences. He noticed that hentai and adult gaming, especially the Japanese animation stuff, had a massive following in the region. It was a no-brainer for them to jump on this opportunity and promote Hentai Heroes.
Not only did Niko see the potential for huge engagement, but they also knew that adult gaming offers tend to keep users hooked and generate serious cash. With Hentai Heroes' addictive gameplay and captivating storylines, it was the perfect product to rake in the dough.
Niko’s choice of the in-stream format in ClickAdilla was driven by its potential for high click-through rates (CTR) and strong conversion rates. Drawing from his experience, Niko knew that captivating video creatives in the in-stream format can effectively engage viewers and prompt action. This format seamlessly integrates within the content, ensuring a receptive audience and maximizing the impact of the adult game offer. The advertiser's decision was strategic, leveraging visually enticing videos to leave a lasting impression and generate significant earnings.
First, he set up the price as it was in the Price box - $0,2 CPM.
After almost a week he activated the Auto Adjust function and connected only Premium traffic sources, so his price changed - it raised up to $0.26 - $0.3 CPM. It was fluctuating during the period due to changes in the RTB auction. Nevertheless, with the Auto-Adjust, he got the whole traffic volume needed.
For the first week of testing Niko’s targets were like that:
Browsers: Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera, Safari Mobile
Categories group: Adult
His target country for this offer was only Spain. He’s chosen the most popular browsers to target: Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera, and Safari Mobile.
The traffic category was Adult, as he was targeting RON (all sources).
Then he optimized his targets. After a week of testing, he set up an IP2 Location Type target for Fixed ISP, Mobile ISP, and Fixed/Mobile ISP. It narrowed his traffic but gave him a more relevant audience.
Altogether with IP2 Location Type, he’ve chosen to target Premium sources. To filter the users, Niko put a daily limit to unique users – only 2 impressions per user per day.
Targeting fixed IPs allows advertisers to reach specific households, businesses, or organizations. This precision is valuable when the goal is to deliver tailored messages to a particular demographic or geographic area. Similarly, targeting Mobile ISPs enables advertisers to reach mobile device users based on their service providers, ensuring relevant and localized ad delivery.
Let's explore how Niko approached his campaign’s creatives. Rather than starting from scratch, he found a variety of hentai videos available online. He selected segments from different videos and crafted a series of enticing ads. These ads provided a glimpse into the captivating world of the hentai online game they were promoting.
To further enhance his ad effectiveness, the advertiser incorporated compelling call-to-action phrases in Spanish that resonated with his target audience. We translated some of them:
“Try not to c**”
“Satisfy your curiosity for free”
“F**k them all – free online game”
And some more phrases like that.
First, Niko optimized his creatives throughout the campaign. He was selecting the videos that brought more CTR and conversions. He uploaded 15 different videos and sometimes he was adding another one to test them.
After several days he figured out which videos gave the best results and used them for the rest of the campaign adding and testing another creative from time to time.
Second, Niko decided to turn on the Auto-Adjust function which helped him to be always up-to-date with his bid. That’s how he economized on traffic and always got the desired volume.
Third, Niko started targeting only Premium sources after a week of testing RON. That worked best for him.
Then, he set up the IP2 Location Type target and unique users filter which helped him to get more precise traffic for his campaign.
