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.

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! --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/gameconsultant/message
