Business Play

trading online opzione turbo wargamingWargaming, a pioneer in the ‘free-to-play’ concept of games in the West, provides high quality games for free, but makes money from upselling items within the game itself. Its first blockbuster was ‘World of Tanks’, launched in 2010, and that placed the company on the global gaming map. This first ‘epic’ game was followed by a suite of other games, chiefly involving aircraft and warships.

The company’s primary way of generating revenue is by offering products from their online premium shop to their gamers. For this, Wargaming has started using personalized communication and recommendation mode in real time interaction with the players. Compared with the earlier non-personalized way, this new way of doing business was measured to be more effective across their business.

Terrific Results

  • Wargaming was able to successfully deploy personalized communications and recommendations model in real time with players to increase LTV compared to those players who weren’t contacted at all. This campaign effectiveness was measured at 5-10% across their business when compared to non-personalized interactions. May seem small but even that amount of increase meant millions of dollars more in revenue.
  • Using a machine learning approach enabled the company to increase the number of campaigns being run simultaneously by 10 times as it minimized the need for a marketing expert to manually design targeted campaigns.
