Hive Promotion is a product that can perform functions such as exposing announcements, cross banners to promote other games, and banners that expose the events of the game. Games with the Hive SDK can operate these promotional functions in the Hive console back office.
Starting Promotion Backoffice
It’s a menu where you can set up the basic information about the app and you can use the app info registered here on other promotion menus. The game must be registered at the App Settings if you want to use other features of the promotion.
You can set up validation version for iOS apps only. Full banners aren’t exposed when the app is undergoing validation, and only normal banners (for validation) are exposed in the News.
Test Environment Settings
It’s a feature that exposes campaigns only for the corresponding DID by registering a test DID when you’re trying to test campaigns on the commerce server.
Campaign Banner Registration and Management
Campaigns can be divided into two categories: event and cross campaigns. You can register campaigns in both types (full and normal banners) for both event and cross banner; however, the registration method slightly differs. Full banner is a banner that’s exposed first when you start the game and normal banner is a banner that’s exposed in the event area in the News. The event banner also supports rolling banners that can be customized to the desired location and UI in the game and displayed.
Event campaigns can help you operate games and can also be used to post important announcements, connect to forums and communities, and also post various events.
The game that the user is currently playing will be the medium and enable you to advertise other games via banners and offerwalls (Free Game Cash).
You can expose spot banners in a specific location within the game (Ex. Arena) in the same form as full banners. Spot banners are supported only on some Hive SDK versions.
Custom Views are used to create content other than events. (Ex. Notices, Announcements, Developer’s Notes, etc.)
