What is an offerwall?

An offerwall is an in-app advertising unit that monetizes users through rewarded ad engagements. Users access the offerwall at key moments in gameplay, often through the app’s store or a contextual message. The ad unit consists of a list of advertising offers which users can choose to engage with in exchange for in-app currency. While the format is ideally suited to micropayment-based freemium apps, it may be tailored to any app with a virtual economy.

 

What is an offerwall?

Offerwalls act as a complement to IAP revenue. They keep users who do not make IAP engaged by providing an alternate path to premium in-app content. Examples of the types of offers we typically see are:

  • Watching a movie trailer
  • Completing in-app events
  • Surveys
  • Signing up for a subscription
  • Making an online purchase

The Tapjoy offerwall gives publishers ultimate control over which ads and offer types are shown to their users. This feature affords them the freedom to optimize the offer selection for their audience and, by extension, maximize ad revenue. The amount of virtual currency paid out to users upon offer completion depends both on the exchange rate, set by the publisher, and advertiser bids.

Are offerwall ads right for you?

Before implementing an offerwall, here are a few more things to consider:

  • Does your app have the right in-game economics? In order for an offerwall to be effective, you will need to have an in-app economy structured around a virtual currency. This virtual currency ought to be a “hard” currency so that it’s value stays consistent as users progress through the game.
  • How will an offerwall affect your existing revenue model? Offerwalls do not typically cannibalize IAP revenue, in part, because most app users are non-spenders. In an app that has the average ratio of spenders to non-spenders, offerwalls serve to maximize LTV.
  • Will your users find value in the experience? Developers select an offerwall provider that supplies high-quality offers that align with their users’ interests. Also, because the offerwall model is highly dependent on third-party ad attribution, they should also investigate whether the provider offers dedicated customer support.
