Wooga’s Switchcraft Gets CGI Makeover

Consumer Acquisition was able to provide us with fresh, breakthrough ad creative that performed to meet different goals, from installs at scale to targeting high-value players. We were truly impressed by how Consumer Acquisition took our 2D assets and brought them to life. The creative process was collaborative and Consumer Acquisition tested all types of concepts and art styles to ensure we found what worked best. For our official game trailer, Consumer Acquisition created compelling 3D assets from scratch under a very tight deadline and we are thrilled with how it turned out. Consumer Acquisition’s commitment to creative research and rigorous creative testing was evident in the excellent results. — Nathalie Wood, Marketing Manager at Wooga

To compete against Gardenscapes, Small Town Murders, or Lily’s Garden, casual games studio Wooga needed compelling ad creative for their first story-driven puzzle match-3 game, Switchcraft. With a unique painterly 2D art style, Switchcraft features a dramatic relationship-driven storyline through diverse characters and magical gameplay. Nuanced character rigging and fluid animation were required to bring their evocative art style to life alongside 3D cinematics that combined realism with comic-book aesthetics.

Through our creative partnership with Wooga, Consumer Acquisition developed a 30-second CGI game trailer, 50 original concepts, and over 150 videos. We created entirely original 3D computer animation along with motion graphics, 2D animation and FX, text animations, lighting effects, character rigging, illustrations, and character design. We developed and tested ad creative that focused on different aspects of the game including themes of love, mystery, drama, or magic. And game mechanics of match-3 puzzles, spellcasting, and narrative choices.

Read our Case Study to see how we helped Switchcraft bring high-value players to the game.

Dating App Creative Trends

Whether your mobile app is fintech, fashion, or fitness, understanding user motivations is critical for a successful user acquisition campaign. With the season of love upon us, dating app ad creative perfectly illuminates how persona-based creative concepts appeal to the unique motivations of different users.

  • Get an analysis of high performing ad creative for top dating apps
  • Explore varied user motivations for dating apps
  • Discover dating app creative trends for TikTok compared to Facebook
  • Compare successful Hinge and Plenty of Fish ad creative

From long-term romance to casual connections, dating apps put matchmaking in your pocket. To see what’s bringing people together, we’ve analyzed creative trends and user motivations for dating apps, with a focus on Hinge and Plenty of Fish. Using data from Facebook Ad Library, TikTok For Business, and MobileAction, we compare what ad creative is working for dating apps right now.

As part of our creative process, our Ad Concept Model helps creative teams build on creative trends and motivations within an app category or mobile game genre to develop new concepts. Below, we’ve shared our Ad Concept Model for dating apps as a tool to explore different concepts for target user personas at the intersection of trends and user motivations. See how different user motivations directly inform creative concepts for successful dating apps ad creative.

 

Analyzing Dating App Creative Trends

Top competitors in the mobile app dating space include Tinder, Hinge, Skout, Clover, Match, Plenty of Fish, OKCupid, and Coffee Meets Bagel.

Competitive research reveals which creative trends are currently working best across social platforms. To identify trends, Facebook Ad Library lets marketers see every ad currently running on their ad network. TikTok For Business surfaces top-performing ads by installs, engagement, and reach. Marketers can also use Mobile Action, SensorTower, or AppAnnie competitor libraries for additional insights.

Based on information from Facebook Ad Library, TikTok For Business, and MobileAction, dating app creative trends we’ve identified include:

  • App Overview: Overview of the app that showcases features and user experience
  • App Content: Captured content and screen grabs from the app
  • Testimonial: Focused on a user’s review and/or experience of the app
  • Influencers: Utilizing influencers and/or celebs to deliver the primary message
  • UGC: Content a user would upload to social media regarding the app
  • Tips & Quizzes: Communicating features or benefits through advice or quizzes

On TikTok in the past thirty days, Hinge and Plenty of Fish have run several top-performing category ads that leverage these trends. Successful ads are measured by installs as a campaign objective.

 

Creative Trends on TikTok

dating app creative trends on TikTok

 

Hinge TikTok ads almost universally use faux testimonials and UGC-style videos. This approach uses direct address toward the audience, text overlays, and looks like entirely native content. In contrast to Hinge’s UGC ads, Plenty of Fish high-performing TikTok ads focus on the app experience and features rotating dating profile photos with minimalistic UI. Captured content and screen grabs from the app help communicate the interaction process while rotating through a swath of other potential users.

Creative Trends on Facebook

 

Facebook and Instagram ads for Hinge reveal a different angle for their audience. These ads feature romance and long-term relationship goals through their tagline “The dating app designed to be deleted.” One high-performing Facebook ad ironically shows a profile of a person who confesses to being “weirdly attracted to people who aren’t on social media.”

dating app Hinge ad

 

 

Ads here also use UGC in a notably different way than respective TikTok UGC ads: messages are screenshots within a social media post to showcase the meta-commentary.

Plenty of Fish ads on Facebook and Instagram are similar to their respective TikTok ads. These ads focus on the app experience, profiles en masse, newness, locality, and the promise of “more.”

Identifying Dating App User Motivations

 

As consumer marketing has grown up, we’ve learned there is no perfect Pepsi, but there are perfect Pepsis for particular palates; the same goes for products in any market. Before building out a matrix for a particular set of ad concepts, we identify different motivations driving our user personas and break down those motivations by underlying values and desires. Below we’ve included motivational triggers for dating app users.

dating app user motivations

Ad creative for Hinge compared to Plenty of Fish illuminates how different concepts can appeal to different user motivations.

hinge and plenty of fish ads

 

 

Users seeking love, authentic connections, and validation respond to the success messaging of Hinge, along with the high quality of the imagery, the brand promise, and the focus on one-to-one attention.

Users seeking casual connections or the excitement of discovery respond to the Plenty of Fish promise of fast onboarding (not “a million questions”), and “new singles” in the area. Even the “See More” prompt teases a surplus of profiles to access.

 

Creating Dating App Ad Concepts

 

To develop and iterate on different creative concepts, we map identified motivations to creative trends within the category. In the empty model below, each box represents a different ad creative concept, supporting nearly 40 concepts by pairing six trends with six motivations. While not all creative trends will work persuasively with each motivation, we can expand our concepts even further by targeting specific personas within each pairing. Based on personas, we develop a bespoke creative strategy targeting behaviors, triggers, and preferences.

The proposed ad concept model acts as a foundation for an iterative creative process that can be customized and extended to develop endless ad concepts for an app, website, or service. By building a scalable infrastructure for creative ideation, we provide unique lanes for creative teams and media buyers to explore ideas. The model also acts as an archive of knowledge to ensure we are always optimizing what we’ve learned.

dating app ad concept model user motivations

 

Based on the high-performing dating app ads outlined above:

  • Hinge TikTok ads use the creative trend of UGC and the motivations of validation, trendiness, and excitement.
  • Hinge Facebook ads use the creative trends of App Content and UGC with the user motivations of love, authentic connection, brand trust, and excitement.
  • Plenty of Fish ads on TikTok and Facebook use the creative trend of App Content with the user motivations of casual dating, ease of use, convenience, speed, and discovery.

 

Media Buying Model

 

As a complementary tool to our Ad Concept Model, our Media Buying Model uses a similar matrixed approach to systematize best practices for user acquisition campaign development. Any mobile app can leverage a unique combination of distinct UA strategies and campaign parameters to develop a robust testing harness for ongoing mobile campaigns across social platforms.

In its most generic state, our Media Buying Model looks like the matrix below, prior to building out a mobile app user acquisition strategy. The entire matrix is tailored to a respective ad network and operating system requirements and constraints. Geographies, languages, and bid types are all modified based on the client’s needs. Each campaign is structured to meet specific goals at the intersection of strategies and parameters. For in-depth tactics by channel, including benefits and limitations for Facebook Android vs. Facebook iOS SKAN, TikTok iOS, and Android, see our full Media Buying Model here.

2022 Mobile App Advertising Trends to Watch

2022 Mobile App Advertising Trends to Watch:

  • First-Party Data
  • Multi-Channel Portfolios, SDKs, DSPs, and Media Mix Modeling
  • Contextual, Persona-Led Advertising
  • Focus On the First 24 Hours
  • Multi-Platform Capabilities
  • Direct-to-Consumer and Alternative Payments
  • NFTs and Blockchain
  • Creator Ecosystems and UGC
  • The Metaverse

Jumping into 2022, mobile app advertisers are better prepared for the evolving advertising ecosystem than they were last year. We can now quantify the impact of IDFA loss and understand the A/B testing implications of automated buying and privacy restrictions. Based on public comments, IDFA impact is generally being accepted as the new normal, with lower-level setting and margin compression due to the complexity of targeting and measurement on iOS. Mobile app businesses are acclimating and many are growing within these new constraints. For the global mobile game market, Newzoo predicts a compound annual growth rate of +11.2 percent by 2021. Similarly, GlobalData estimates the mobile gaming industry will record a CAGR of 11% by 2030.

2022 Mobile App Advertising

 

Based on conversations with our clients and leading industry experts, +11% CAGR is a moderate estimate. However, many speculate that emerging trends may be under-indexed and could increase market growth upwards of 20%. We are excited to see how mobile-first companies are improving and innovating in real-time to address advertising ecosystem challenges.

From first-party data to NFTs, here are the successful strategies and user acquisition trends we’ll be watching in 2022.

 

2022 Mobile App Advertising Trends

2022 mobile app advertising trends

 

First-Party Data

Companies that build their own identity systems tied into behavioral dynamics and layered with contextual advertising do not need to rely on third-party visibility. For valuable first-party data, mobile app companies with the resources are wise to build ad platforms alongside or in tandem with their publishing platforms. Setting up native experiences allows for control of tracking, measurement, and analysis. Similarly, social platform-based experiences, such as games on Snap and TikTok, provide native attribution tracking and analysis.

 

Multi-Channel Portfolios

Companies will need to enhance their iOS acquisition portfolios beyond Facebook and Google, and expand volume from SDK Networks (Applovin, Unity, IronSource, Vungle) and DSPs. A true multi-channel approach should also include YouTube, TikTok, and Snap. As portfolios grow, complexity grows, requiring robust media mix modeling and reliable attribution analysis.

 

Contextual, Persona-Led Advertising

As reliance on upper-funnel campaigns increases, ad creative optimized to appeal to discreet personas is the most efficient lever for sustained profitable user acquisition. Without deterministic tracking, motivation-based, persona-led ad creative is critical to attracting high-quality top-of-funnel installs.

 

Focus On the First 24 Hours

To help with SKAN restrictions after install, the first 24-48 hours of app usage should identify consumers that indicate a propensity to monetize. We recommend streamlining and instrumenting your onboarding flows and events to capture these early monetization signals. With persona-led creative paired with onboarding events, the algorithms will learn what changes to make to deliver better audiences.

Multi-Platform Capabilities

Just as consumers have come to expect omnichannel shopping experiences, gamers will increasingly expect console-to-mobile flexibility and consistency. With global 5G adoption estimated to hit one billion subscriptions in 2022, mobile games can leverage higher download speeds for higher fidelity gameplay. Companies building their own identity systems can provide consistent experiences and analytics across platforms. Simultaneously taking advantage of alternative purchasing mechanisms outside of the App Store. Apple’s official App Store Review Guidelines states, “apps that operate across multiple platforms may allow users to access content, subscriptions, or features they have acquired in your app on other platforms or your web site, including consumable items in multi-platform games, provided those items are also available as in-app purchases within the app.”

 

Direct-to-Consumer and Alternative Payments

As the industry-shaking lawsuit of Epic Games v. Apple continues to play out in the appellate courts, developers should plan for alternative purchasing mechanisms outside of the App Store. If Apple is required to allow metadata buttons and external links for payments, developers can increase revenue by 30 percent as they eliminate App Store commissions. By offering direct-to-consumer billing options, app developers can also decrease IAP costs for users.

 

NFTs and Blockchain

Through non-fungible tokens (NFTs), mobile gaming companies will have a massive market opportunity. From digital plots of land to rare gear, NFTs built into core gameplay loops have the potential to drive significant in-game purchases. When tied to player motivations, NFTs can appeal to completionists, collectors, customizers, status-seekers, and strategists.

 

Creator Ecosystems and UGC

User-generated video continues to drive meaningful engagement on social platforms. As platforms increase interactive video capabilities, that engagement will only increase. Building out creator ecosystems that support UGC has the added value of providing first-party data through native experiences.

 

The Metaverse

Adjacent to and often overlapping with creator ecosystems is the Metaverse. It is a persistent, virtual, connected, social space that is emergent and speculative. Second Life was prototypical and popular contemporaries include Roblox, Minecraft, and Fortnite. Immersive environments and the communities that grow within them also present significant opportunities for monetization, user-generated content, contextual advertising, and first-party data.

Wooga’s Switchcraft Case Study

Wooga Switchcraft Case Study: CGI Game Trailer and Ad Creative

 

No matter your budget or your IP, in the current mobile advertising ecosystem your best-performing Facebook ad has about ten weeks before creative fatigue sets in. 85-95% of new creative concepts fail to outperform your best ad and finding your next winner takes 20-50 new original concepts. In the face of IDFA loss and media buying automation, finding high-quality top-of-funnel users is critical for profitable user acquisition.

Our Ad Concept Model targets valuable users through tailored motivational drivers paired with creative trends. This process yields fresh creative concepts for ongoing testing while maintaining advertising profitability at scale. For our client Wooga, we developed over 50 new ad concepts, over 150 video ads, and the official 30-second CGI game trailer for their popular mobile game Switchcraft.

 

View the Wooga Switchcraft Game Trailer

Created by Consumer Acquisition by Brainlabs

Here’s how we helped bring new players to Wooga Switchcraft through thumb-stopping ad creative and a magical, cinematic game trailer.

Challenge

Casual games studio Wooga was seeking compelling ad creative for the soft launch of their first story-driven puzzle match-3 game, Switchcraft. Striving for market differentiation among competitors such as Gardenscapes, Lily’s Garden, and Small Town Murders, Wooga wanted to highlight their dramatic relationship-driven storyline, diverse characters, and magical gameplay.

Switchcraft gameplay combined match-3 puzzles, progressive narrative choices, and spellcasting minigames. Nuanced character rigging and fluid animation would be required to bring their evocative, painterly art style to life alongside 3D cinematics that combined realism with comic-book aesthetics.

Solution

Using our Ad Concept Model, we systematize creative development and UA targeting so our clients get reliable top-performing creative in the most cost-efficient and scalable way. These are the steps within the model:

  1. Analyze competitor and creative trends to build on what’s working
  2. Collaborate with client to identify user motivations and target personas
  3. Create concepts at the intersection of trends and motivations
  4. Test to learn what works and document process to ensure knowledge transfer
  5. Optimize to do more of what works and iterate

 

Analyzing Creative Trends

Researching what creative is working and what isn’t across the category helps identify creative trends to build on. As a narrative-based match-3 mobile game with magical gameplay mechanics, there were many popular creative trends to build on for Switchcraft. Some Match-3 creative trends included:

  • Puzzles: Locks & Gates and other puzzles that challenge users to free a game character (Fishdom, Gardenscapes, Homescapes, many others)
  • Picker Videos: 3D or 2D situations with pickers, often resulting in disastrous fails. (Township, Sweet Escapes, Manor Cafe, many others)
  • Hidden Items: Videos or still images that contain hidden items the user must find. (Meow Match, June’s Journey)
  • Design Challenges: Tasks that must be completed within an allotted time or budget. (Design Home, Sweet Escapes)
  • Real Player Gameplay: Split screen featuring a player and gameplay. (Jelly Juice)
  • Female-Centered Vignettes: Women overcoming adversity and men behaving badly in soap opera situations. (Lily’s Garden, Choices, Vineyard Valley, My Home: Design Dreams)
  • Choose Your Adventure: Series of situations where you choose between two actions. (Choices, Episode)
  • Game Controller: Picker that mimics a game console, guiding character through levels. (Candy Crush, Hustle Castle)
  • Lifestyle and Gameplay: Showing lifestyle footage and gameplay that matches image (Toon Blast, Farm Hero Saga)
  • Gameplay + Side Character: Gameplay elements leave the screen to interact with characters (Candy Blast Mania, Candy Smash Mania)
  • Mixing Gameplay with Narrative: Storybook narration, Coloring book style (Bubble Witch Saga)
  • 3D effect: Characters “floating” above gameplay (Farm Heroes Saga)
  • Incorporating Game to Solve a Problem: Using gameplay to find the key to escape a room (Candy Smash mania)

Some Romance and Narrative creative trends included:

  • Choosing what’s next from the player POV to direct narrative while interacting with the game’s characters
  • Game trailer/overview that showcases user experience, core objectives, and other game features
  • Fashion and style challenges
  • Using social media or texting to convey the narrative or primary message
  • Character focus using countdowns, origin stories
  • Vignettes featuring short character scenarios or stories
  • Achievement opportunities like level progression to unlock more of the story
  • Success vs. Fail gameplay contrasting experienced and amateur players

 

Identifying User Motivations

As consumer marketing has grown up, we’ve learned there is no perfect Pepsi, but there are perfect Pepsis for particular palates; the same goes for products in any market. Before building out a matrix for a particular set of ad concepts, we identify different motivations driving our user personas and break down those motivations by underlying values and desires. Below we’ve included motivational triggers for mobile game players.

Standard gaming motivations

Creating Concepts

We map identified motivations to creative trends within the category to develop and iterate on different concepts. In the empty model below, each box represents a different ad creative concept, supporting nearly 50 concepts by pairing eight trends with six motivations. While not all creative trends will work persuasively with each motivation, we can expand our concepts even further by targeting specific personas within each pairing. Based on personas, we develop a bespoke creative strategy targeting behaviors, triggers, and preferences.
