Everyone always need more gold. Especially, when it comes to attracting a paying audience in their games and applications.
Every specialist must complete the KPI. And now, you need to understand how to perform it?
You can use existing marketing channels, you can attract the contractors to optimize existing or go beyond the standard channels and countries.
The audience is always limited, and the auction is growing. We need to use in the practice new social networks and countries to find new and paying players.
We are always working on three audiences, which could be drawn:
• New players
• Active players
• Paying players

You should pay attention to Russian social network that is fully open to international brands. They almost monopolized the CIS countries, and they are actively developing in Europe.
VK has at least 88 per cent of monthly active users. Social network is actively used by 46, 9 million people monthly, and daily active custom audience is about 22, 1 million people. The second Russian social network Odnoklassniki, which covers monthly 60% of Runet users.
