Hey everyone. I just came across this video which was sent to me on facebook. The guy shows that he's getting $75 ecpm with chartboost ads in his account. Thats really big. Is it just because he's showing video ads instead of static ads?

I'm curious about this because we've not tested it deeply so far.
Here's the video:




I started a quick test on just added a non-reward video ad campaign for one of our higher downloaded games. Here's the screenshots from our chartboost showing the current ecpm:

Here you can see the new video campaign added:

Kill Bad Stickman Boss - added non reward video ads on for test on April 13th 2016 - see if any impact.png 
I don't know if the sdk version in this game supports video ads because it was published about 1 year ago I think. But i'll keep an eye on this over the next couple of days and I'll post any results here.

Has anyone else tried this and gotten some good results?

Chat soon [smile]

Looks like it's all about filtering to get the best advertisers and updating your filtering daily on their recommendations. Which I guess could (in theory) produce those kind of results. On the other hand the page looks a little like one of those get rich schemes, which puts me off.

My rewarded video ads on Unity get an eCPM of $14.12 (with a 95.42% fill rate), which is higher than most of the eCPMs I see for static chartboost, but I think it must be the filtering that produces this kind of eCPM (assuming it's genuine, which it easily could not be). I would also be curious as to whether this could work with a lot of traffic, the videos they show are people who are showing about 1,000 ads a day, I wonder if it's possible to get this eCPM with careful filtering on a small volume, but doing it with a larger volume will drain all the good ads.

Personally I'd have to question why someone who has the ability to produce a sustainable eCPM that's at least x10 higher than the norm wouldn't just make apps and buy downloads to capitalise on this.

In theory this should work. Even Carter the marketing guy was buying up all the good ranked casino apps just to do these kinds of marketing tricks but he got out of the apps business. He now runs an Amazon reseller scheme.

It seems that the equation fails at some point, I would guess that after a few months you run out of the high paying premium ads and your eCPM drops because you get served with the low paying ones.

I tried this last summer, got crazy money for 3 months with casino apps and then it faded out by the New Year. Same amount of impressions, same user acquisition.

I saw this probably one year ago. And, exactly the shitty webpage that looks like a con, got me closing the tab in chrome.

Honestly I don't believe in it. I might be completely wrong but with my current Indie budget, I can't invest on something that does not look reputable.

Do you know why he doesn't do apps anymore? Im assuming because since 2014 it just got really hard to make money.
What is amazon reseller? Do you mean the amazon affiliate program where you promote amazon product through your site?

Thanks Martin you really not my affiliate :-) but you can be with good advertising , i saw many visit from that forum and login check why :-)

The product work and we make really amazing results with our apps , not only video ad's made 150$ ECPM also regular ad's make not bad - Proof http://screencast.com/t/jTIQ9uxnq

Basically it's option for every game make better , non casino games will make much much less ECPM :-)

Who have games with high traffic we can supply him also private service for this or training how make it alone

I am not like Carther make apps for my self and sell apps and also publisher for indie developers today and help many developers not only in theory :-)

Everybody who intersted can add me in skype tolik.eidelman or email tolik@asktolik.com

Thanks
Tolik
