Sameer Baroova is co-founder of FitXR, a fitness technology company and creator of BOXVR, a top selling VR app on Oculus and Steam. Prior to this, Sameer worked at PlayJam, EA and PopCap in various roles.
The purpose of this talk is to share FitXR's insights from acquiring the first 10000 customers for their top selling app BOXVR. The talk focuses on lessons learnt from using traditional user acquisition methods such as search optimisations, ads, marketing campaigns, competitions, social media campaigns, store placements, influencers, reviews, in game features and community management. Sameer will discuss the success of each type of method and elaborate on how FitXR used the lessons learnt in improving their game design, and in increasing engagement and retention.

Develop is a very important place – it’s one of the few developer focussed conferences we have in Europe and that makes it very valuable.
There really is a huge mix of people at Develop - loads of peers that you can learn from and the perfect blend of every element of game development as well.
A lot of the opportunities that come from being here are speaking to other developers who are doing exactly the same thing as you. And there are some good parties – it’s very much a pleasurable work experience!
There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
Building games is hard and it’s taxing physically, mentally and emotionally. So being around a community that understands that is great – there’s a comraderie here.
If you really want to have a good interface with the British game developer community then this is the place to come.
I really like Develop, I really like the intimacy of it and I love the location.. there’s a good diversity of talks going on so there hasn’t been a time when there’s nothing I want to see.
There’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
We are so lucky to have Develop here in the UK. It’s a unique event where you can come and discover new things with people who care passionately about video games. It’s a sea full of new ideas.
I’ve felt a big passion here at Develop!
