According to Shamanth, they have a good influencer traffic. It wasn’t the best traffic, but it was cost-effective because it was cheap. This made him think of having the influencers play the game itself.
The social media influencer plays the game while somebody else records the activity at their back. This strategy results in a tremendous drop in CPI about 60-70%. This probably works better than animation because the cartoons characters don’t capture the normal reactions from real players.
Shamanth added that one of the best creatives that work for them is a 6-second video that shows an influencer and the best feature of the game. It doesn’t even show the influencer’s face and doesn’t mention any features or value propositions just the single most important proposition of the game.
If you want to work with a social media influencer, Shamanth recommends that you work with an agency.
