'Cross promotion networks' - Exchanging ads and installs with other apps and games - Chris Hanage - #APS2013

Published on

Chris started his career in magazine and digital publishing before moving into games. After an MBA at the London Business School he headed up business development at Synergenix, Infospace and PlayerX before moving to Papaya in 2011.

PapayaMobile provides both tools for game developers and content for players on its growing social mobile network of over 80 million users worldwide. Papaya’s latest product, AppFlood, is a new way to acquire users for Android and iOS applications. Rather than losing 30% to traditional ad networks, publishers and advertisers are buying and selling installs on the only commission-free install market. In addition, developers can use AppFlood cross-promotion to exchange non-incentivized traffic in order to grow their users for free.
