  • The Right Reward for watching Video Ads

Too small or too large reward for watching a video ad can either demotivate users or ruin your virtual economy. Finding the right amount of virtual reward is a balancing act that requires rigorous testing. As a rule of thumb, start with the smallest reward you can give then slowly adjust to your sweet spot.

The two most important ones are Ad timing and Callback (client/server based).  You have to have the right and secured integration that rewards the right amount of currency for completed Ads.
