Recap of the Application Developers Alliance Workshop

by Rafael Vivas on Jun 23, 2016

Last month I had the pleasure of participating in the Application Developers Alliance Workshop in LA. I participated in a panel called “Maximizing App Revenue” moderated by Martin Price of Vdopia; together with Peter Heinrich of Amazon’s app store, Zachary Kuney of Google, Adam Rockmore of Fandango, we discussed the importance of understanding different ad formats and leveraging them effectively.

One of my main points was that when you’re running ads, testing is crucial. I always recommend that publishers soft release their apps and see what works before buying ads. Always make sure you’re up on the advantages of of various ad formats (and remember that video and native both tend to do incredibly well).

Check out the App Developers Alliance’s entire blog post covering the event here (complete with key takeaways and really useful slide decks on print solutions for apps and how to build a great team). All of the videos from the workshop are available, so be sure to watch them.

It was great to be with such a great crowd of smart developers at the workshop, and I’m always proud when I see how much people enjoy AppLovin swag.
