      Users frequently encouraged to publish2stream
      More publish2streams
    • Incentivizing publish2streams

      User 2 clicks, completes action
      User 1 gets incentives
      User 1 nags User 2 to complete action

    • Tips to bring out the beast in your game…
    • Use a cute picture for your stream post. 

    • Use “call for mating” headers instead of general boring statements …
    • Ask yourself, would you rather …..
      Get a sign on bonus?
      Save the seal?
      Play Tiki resort?
    • Mating analytics
      Track the # of times a pop-up is shown, and a pop-up is published to stream
      There are three areas on a stream post users can choose to click (look below)
      Track the click through rates, and action completed for all 3 areas
      Determine which one works best!
    • Variables2track
      Date or Cohort
      Type of stream post
      Designs or styles for a/b testing
      # of pop-ups shown to users (a)
      # of published pop-ups (b)
      Published/shown ratio = b/a
      # of clicks from all users for pop-up (c)
      Clicks/published ratio = c/b
    • Variables2track - contd
      Click breakdown – Where did users click?
      • 1 – Picture (d), % of total clicks = d/c
      • 2 – Header (e), % of total clicks = e/c
      • 3 – Small link (f), % of total clicks = f/c
      Actions completed
      • 1 – Action 1 – g
      • 2 – Action 2 – h
      • 3 – Action 3 – I
      Total action completed = g+h+I = j
      Total ROI = j/c or j/b or j/a depending on what you’re tracking
    • Hopefully you’re now able to develop a virile game …
    • Be the social game alfa male … !
      Increase your game’s user count … !
