Monetization and revenue growth in mobile gaming

The mobile gaming market shows signs of recovery, with revenue expected to reach pre-2022 levels by 2024. Developers, however, are still focusing on costs and saving money, which involves cutting advertising expenses, adjusting budgets according to the IAA economic model, and trimming project staffing. This creates a need for ways to stabilize their businesses and reallocate resources. Additionally, there are a few challenges mobile game developers are facing. Earning enough revenue to sustain projects is one of them, and so is trying to launch new ones. Another major hurdle is the hefty 30% fee on mobile platform transactions, which eats into costs. This makes boosting revenue a top priority. Game developers often analyze how players spend money, how long they stick around, and their overall lifetime value (LTV) to identify areas for improvement. Their goal? To make in-game purchases more appealing, encourage players to spend more, and ultimately maximize each player's value. Finally, getting more players to pay is crucial, but so is adding more payment options, especially in regions where Apple or Google aren't dominant.
