What is offerwall monetization?

An offerwall is an in-app advertising hub that enables developers and publishers to monetize players through incentivized, contextual engagement. Offerwalls typically appear in mobile games, but the strategy can drive value across any app category. Functionally, offerwalls act as in-app storefronts, providing players with an array of advertiser-sponsored activities they may complete in exchange for virtual rewards within the host app.

What is offerwall monetization?

Offerwalls supplement IAP revenue and keep players engaged by providing an alternate path to premium in-app currency, bonuses, or content. On iOS, user acquisition offers, such as incentivized free trials, are the most popular type of offer. Meanwhile, on Android devices, in-app engagements perform the best. Users may also engage with the following offer types:

  • Playable mini-games
  • Surveys and questionnaires
  • Exploring an affiliated app
  • Signing up for a free trial
  • Making an online purchase
  • Completing other in-app activities

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.
