Mobile marketers can learn a lot from tried and true strategies of email marketers. A common tactic is to send onboarding nurture emails to users of a new product or service. The disadvantage which email marketers experience is that there is nearly always a segment of people who don’t open emails, therefore not seeing the information you sent.

On the other hand, people are always going to see your mobile ads. They have to scroll past them on Facebook or watch a video to keep playing a game. 100% of the people who you serve an ad to are going to see it.

Email isn’t enough anymore. We need to start using a coordinated strategy for mobile nurture campaigns – one with a 100% view rate every single day.

My name is Vinícius. I started my career as a user acquisition manager at Wooga about five years ago. Over the years I have learned and grown a lot. I started advertising our games on desktop and have since transitioned to mobile marketing.

We start marketing our games early during the soft launch period, i.e., before they have proven their quality to go live worldwide. We accumulate learnings about our target audience and how to best reach game players. With these learnings we move on to define the strategy for global launch and how to optimize our marketing. After launching our games globally, we keep iterating on our ads throughout the full lifecycle in order to keep attracting new players.

Through digital media, we have the ability to hyper-segment and test, with real-time feedback, on what messages work for which audience at what times.

My first Marketing job was with Red Bull, where I stayed for nearly 3 years and learned a ton about branding and positioning. I later moved on to the startup world helping small businesses succeed on the web with a company that was acquired by Intuit.

I’ve worked at a handful of startups since and have acted as an advisor with at least 50 over the last 12 years. My first role in gaming was with a real money fantasy sports startup called ScoreStreak as their Director of Marketing. I later took a role at Zynga managing acquisition across all slots and match-3 titles. I was quickly promoted to a senior, then lead, role overseeing acquisition across all titles.

I’m now the Director of Performance Marketing at King where I’m focused on the strategic direction of the marketing org as it relates to partnerships, ad tech, emerging platforms and digital/traditional media buying.

UA comes down to basic math, the challenge is finding the right way to balance the equation.

Growing up, I wasn’t a gamer or someone who spent much time with technology. Looking back, I could never imagine that I would become an expert in marketing mobile games. At the start of my career, I wasn’t focused on the tech industry or mobile games. My initial background was in traditional corporate marketing, but I was able to get my foot in the door at ngmoco, and worked my way up from an entry-level role. Since then, I’ve been with multiple gaming companies at various stages (start-up, public, etc.), and have managed a combined UA budget of $50M+. On a personal note, I have an obsession with food and dogs, and hope to someday marry these passions with my mobile expertise.
