    Marketing WHY PLAYABLES? • CVM up to 2x video • Engagement = Intent • Abundant Supply • Higher LTV
  16. CREATIVES: PLAYABLE ADS Getting the Most Out of Your Paid

    Marketing BEST PRACTICES: • Gameplay should start automatically. No need for a “Start” or “Play Now” button. • Playable ≠ Tutorial • Playables less than 10 seconds not so good. • Recommended length is 15-45 seconds. • Install now option within Playable • Skip => End Card (like video) to prevent accidental close (OR full close out as a UX decision)

    Marketing WHY VERTICAL? • 75% of all casual gaming inventory is portrait. • Landscape video in portrait is bad use of screen space. • Most people do not rotate their phone to view an ad. • 30% better performance for vertical video vs landscape (on portrait inventory) BEST PRACTICES: • Optimize for portrait • Build in interactive features using all the device capabilities: tap, zoom, swipe, move/gyro etc. • End card experience: interactive, playable, carousels, experiment, frequent refresh. • 1:1 square video works too.
