User acquisition is a top developer concern these days. As the cost of acquisition continues to surge, the ability to engage and retain the users you acquire is becoming a critical part of any good user acquisition strategy. During this session, Rob Carroll will go through details on how to build your funnel to maximize the user experience and set-up metrics to give hard data to your results. The session will include a detailed case study on the hit mobile title Dawn of the Dragons, tutorial improvements, and how those changes translated into increased user engagement.


This session will look at best practices, strategies and tips to help reduce the new user funnel friction in your game, and improve the conversion from acquired user to playing customer.
