Tuyoo was able to get the bronze medal last week for overall budget and silver for budget increase. This is driven mainly by 3 titles:

  • Panda cube smash
  • Fish blast
  • Solitaire Tripeaks

Out of these – we will focus on Panda cube.

Focus on Rewarded Videos

Analyzing the first aspect of Panda cube strategy allows us to see that most of the creatives are of the rewarded video type. We can also see that the strategy produces high CTR for TUYOO.

Videos and Playables

Effective creatives became one of the most important aspects of marketing in the last 12 months. Here is one of the top videos for Panda Cube.

And here is the top playable ad.

Networks before DSPs

We can see that TUYOO is pushing Panda cube aggressively through networks rather than through DSP and programatic buying. UnityAds seems to lead in terms of number of impressions but is losing some steam to another provider.

Publisher Targeting

The chart below shows a focus on other “make money” publishers but getting the highest performance performance with publishers featuring restaurent simulation games.

Device Targeting

The last piece of TUYOO strategy is what devices they are targeting. We can see that most of their ads show up while users are holding their phone in landscape mode. At the same time there seems to be more ads being shown in devices that have 720 pixels screen height – about 3x more than their normal share of voice. Devices with 720 pixels tend to be cheaper models. It’s possible that TUYOO target uneducated poor people. Alternatively, this could be a result of low bids with no rules that take the device model into account so their bid win in situation where competition is low.
