Interview with Marius Rizopol from Miniclip
This episode featured an interview with Marius Rizopol, Senior Marketing Creative Lead at Miniclip, who discussed his best-performing creative for the Matchday Manager game – the “stadium upgrade” ad. He shared that this ad leverages the popular concept of progression and has proven to be highly effective in engaging their target audience.
Marius also mentioned that he’s revamping the creative process at Miniclip. He’s working on organizing everything and creating a clear framework for creative production. The team is putting extra emphasis on ideation by making it objective and coherent, and ensuring that each ad conveys a clear message. They’re also streamlining the process to facilitate cooperation between the creative team and the UA managers. This will enable them to interpret results, draw learnings, and make decisions collaboratively.
Since implementing this new approach, the team has gained greater clarity on their entire workflow, from initial planning to ideation, result interpretation, and determining their next steps.
Drawing from his experience in the traditional advertising industry, Marius stressed the significance of ideation, workflows, and tools to create a clear plan during the concept stage, which ultimately enhances the effectiveness of ads. He also noted that the line between big advertisers and Performance Marketing is blurring, and in the gaming industry, where competition is high, ideation is increasingly crucial as a differentiator.
