What strategies work best to get quality installs?
Mobile install is the first but very critical step for any app marketing campaign. The key is reaching out to the Right audiences, at the right time, with the Right channel and messaging – Essentially to people who understand the value proposition of the app and integrate it as a part of their regular routine. Keeping the audiences engaged, constant effective communication, and creating win-win for consumers contributes to a great extent in building that stickiness.
What are your thoughts about increasing customer LTV?
Customer lifetime value is directly proportionate to the growth in revenue for your brand. One of the most effective ways of increasing the LTV is by providing the customers with value in our products and services e.g. bundling, subscription modeling, etc. Also, focussing on the relationship with the customers through relevant and engaging communication is imperative. An immersive experience to both the existing and new customers is the key to increasing CLTV.
Why is it important to connect with users across multiple touchpoints?
The presence of social media, and high-speed internet on mobile phones means that the customers can access anything online with a single touch. Marketers can, therefore, no longer depend on a single communication channel to reach the users as they can be on any app or web at a given point in time. Connecting with the customers across multiple touchpoints lets you optimize your marketing communication by making balanced use of all the opportunities that you may have in grabbing your users’ attention.

The transition and the growth in the digital sector have been exponential over the last few years, and the only way to stay ahead is by constant observation and learning.
