Macroscopic analysis of the mobile game market under the epidemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the stage for every business. On the one hand, it has destroyed some businesses; on the other hand, it has helped others rise. The mobile gaming industry is one such industry that has gained an enormous benefit because of this situation.

As more and more people have been forced to stay at their home, the only significant means of their entertainment and communication are mobile phones. Mobile games, therefore, become the best way for people to communicate and great entertainment during the quarantine. The year 2020 might be the best time for mobile gaming.

But these games remain attractive for the users for a limited time, and then they simply download another one. Therefore we can say that mobile game industry is facing stiff competition, only the games with good graphics and quality stay popular for a long time. 

Competition in the mobile game industry:

This competition in the game industry is not just limited to the number of games being developed but also the marketing costs. Cost per click for many of the broadly searched terms has been skyrocketing in the current era. Where it’s easier for people to launch a game, it has become difficult to market it in such a hyper-competitive environment.

In such a competitive environment, marketing strategies become more important.  Only by making high-quality mobile games and planning for a long-term operation can their games thrive. Let’s take help in the marketing from SocialPeta’s insights, which is one of the biggest advertising and ad cost intelligence platforms.

Importance of ad intelligence and cost intelligence

Ad intelligence uses artificial intelligence and big data to intelligently build the advertising strategies that work wonders. The ad intelligence tools keep an eye on brands in different niches and keep track of their advertising data. The collection of this big data can be later used with AI to create the strategies for an ad campaign; the data source can be your previous ads or the ads of the brands in your niche, i.e., your competitors. This can help in devising a better strategy in comparison to a strategy created using manual means.

Ad cost intelligence is an approximate measure of advertisement cost for your future ad campaigns based on the data from the sources that have already run similar ads in your niche. You can see the advertising cost trends for matrices like CTR, CPM, CPC, Placement, and countries. Ad cost intelligence can really help the advertisers and optimizers in estimating the budget for an ad campaign.
