I recently studied all of the ketchapp games and seen that they cross promote all their other games through some kind of ad pop-up at the start of the game.

I used an app on android to find out what ad networks were they using but no success in finding the proper ad network that they use for their cross-promotion.

I want to ask you guys if anyone knows if ketchapp is using a specific ad network for cross-promotion or maybe they use their own server or something like that, to show that type of ad?

If anyone has more information about that it would be very awesome.

Thank you!

Ketchapp games are probably using their own selfpromotion system. They are not the only one. Most of bigger players are doing the same. Like Outfit7 for example. They are using small icons and fullscreen ads.
I am using my own system for selfpromotion. You can see it in my latest VR game(link down below) in menu(Logo picture that is rotating). If you click it, you will open game on Google Play. To control what logo to show and where should it lead to, I have JSON files(where I control add type(pic or gif), compaign name etc.) on my servers stored in a database, so it is very easy to advertise new app's. The only big problem I have is to update all of my games with this new plugin. Since I have to update more then 100 apps on IOS, GooglePlay and Amazon... it will take me more then a month to do that.
It is always better to have your own promotion system, so you risk less in case of account suspension and it is easier to boost apps on new account.

Mine plugin that I use for selfpromotion was made mostly by my friend(There are 2 parts. One that runs on server and one made in Unity). Communication between Unity and Server was the hardest part I think. Currently I am using beta version of that plugin.

its really not a problem creating one you just need to know abit of sql and make a php script to query the sql server for a row that will contain lets say a string with the app link, and another string that represent the image file name, then make a proper image in ur server with the name you inserted to your sql server and make logic in unity for getting that information and displaying the wanted objects.

If you just want a pic and a link... you can do it that way and it is very easy. It's harder if you want to make different compaigns and types of ads + animated pics etc.(you need to store that in a JSON file or something like that) I can also use plugin for showing something like newsletter etc.

My plugin is not finished yet and maybe I will offer it for a monthly fee after testing. I just integrated it in few of my amazon games and 1 google play game.

i dont think that someone Interessent on monthy fees.
But better is when you publish it in unity3d asset store sellprice about 100-200$ ??
For me its not worth with fees because I use other dear networts like chartboost or other maybe heyzap have also a good crosspromotion tool.

Plugin was made cause ad networks can suspend your account. It happened in the past to few people. Also you can get your google play account suspended. If that happens your own promotion tool is the only way to quickly promote games on new accounts. It's very hard to trust those big companies nowadays.

I will probably put a lot of efford to make my future in game developing industry safe. The easiest way is to make a promotion tool and to get more accounts.
