FUN-GI had partnered with Facebook Audience Network since the launch of House Flip working with them across ad monetization and user acquisition.
For ad monetization, FUN-GI had previously integrated Facebook Audience Network within their waterfall mediation set up. When they learned they could access Facebook Audience Network via bidding they were eager to test this.
FUN-GI integrated app bidding with Facebook Audience Network through AppLovin MAX. They tested it on their Home Flip app across iOS and Android with rewarded video placements.
Integrating the Facebook Audience Network bidder proved successful for FUN-GI, driving a 25% increase in ARPDAU1 (average revenue per daily active user).
Through an A/B test, FUN-GI compared two groups:
The A/B test showed an overall uplift of 25% in ARPDAU when comparing bidding vs. waterfall groups. When Facebook Audience Network was able to bid in real time on all relevant impressions this drove more competition for their inventory.
Further, by not having to manually manage their complex waterfall, the FUN-GI team saved time in their ad operations and was able to devote more time to growing their business including developing new titles and expanding their team.
