4 Steps to Increase Brand Awareness using Mobile Games

Hello! My name is Avantika and I’m a Casual Gamer.
Oh My God! So are you? Nice to meet you 🙂
But I hope you know that we are not the ‘chosen ones’. Like us, more than half of the billions of smartphone users fall under the category of Casual Gamers. And the figure will keep going up.

Flurry recently published a report, Five Year Report: “It’s an App World. The Web Just Lives in It”, which stated that “out of an average of 2 hours and 38 minutes per day on smartphones and tablets, a U.S. consumer spends 80% of that time (i.e. 2 hours and 7 minutes) on apps. In addition, they found out that mobile gaming apps form the largest category of all apps with 32% of time spent on them.” (Source: Flurry)
