Mystery Tag is a mobile publisher and game developer with multiple successful games in its portfolio. In the middle of 2020, RTB House kickstarted a personalized retargeting campaign for Mystery Tag’s flagship game, Harvest Land.
after two months of optimization
Harvest Land is a free-to-play casual mobile game with around 15 million installs. Players are able to create their own village, cultivate crops, raise animals, and explore the secrets of the lost island.
Mystery Tag had a successful game but found that previous retargeting efforts had failed to truly maximize its potential further. The RTB House team were able to outline the value of using superior technology and domain knowledge, convincing Mystery Tag to grow Harvest Land with fresh campaigns.
The campaign centered around re-engaging inactive playing users of the Harvest Land game in order to encourage them to start playing again. Success would be measured using ROAS.
The Harvest Land campaign had very specific requirements that meant that the RTB house team had to create a tailored campaign from the ground-up.
For example, the team needed to work with complicated custom tags based on existing audience data. This was used to build and work with different segments of Harvest Land’s users based on their interaction with the game. Furthermore, any creative utilized had to be localized to target users from a variety of different countries. These were specific requirements that the RTB House team had to meet in order to make the campaign a success.
Given the client’s skepticism surrounding the efficacy of retargeting campaigns, it was important for RTB House to not only meet expectations but to exceed them.
