1SDK Greeting

1SDK 1SDK is a SaaS (Software as a Service) platform for mobile App/Game ­Companies to grow In-App revenue with dynamic pricing based on user actions/behavior. THE PROBLEM The In-app virtual goods market is valued in excess of $10B, but almost 50% of the revenue is captured by the top 25 App and Game Companies. Why is this? The top 25 make great Apps, but they also have sophisticated monetization tools and dedicated revenue management teams. The rest of the 180K+ mid-size companies and ­developers lack such tools and teams and hence struggle to monetize. 1SDK levels the playing field.

THE SOLUTION 1. Gather data about your user base • with a single SDK connect and gather data from multiple appstores 2. S egment user from their In-app behavior • identify your mostly valuable ­users, those at risk of attritions and the ones likely to buy more 3. G  row in-app revenue with dyna­ mic pricing • easily test price points, offer price promotions to battle churn and convert users to paying ­customers STATUS 1SDK software is available for free trial at www.1SDK.com.
