App Promotion : Trend in with Mobility model, how we do it?
Internet is magical. You start with googling a wallet when somehow you end up buying a watch. How does that happen? How does one start searching for one specific app say, a racing game but lands up on a treasure quest? The phenomenon we are talking about here is referred to as Advertising. Its kind of simple actually. An Ad network uses interactive advertising at pertinent designated locations according to existing attributions, given the user interests and thus, attracts impressions. A mobile app as fancy or simplified it may be, holds the power to manipulate and hamper one’s daily schedule and leave a very strong impression psychologically. An app could be revolutionary, out of the box or life changing, it may worth a 1000$ or as low as 1$ but does the idea or the money you put in for building an app, sell the app? Of course not. Just like in movies, you need a good trailor to make the show house full, an app craves for the right strategic promotion.
In the year 2007, Greystripe (mobile ad-supported game and application distributor) ran a mobile ad campaign wherein the New Line cinema’s movie “The Golden Compass” was being played on the screen till the time any game was in process of loading. This campaign increased aided movie awareness by 19%, from 42% to 61% which back in 2007 was a big move. How did that happen? Mobile Advertising. The moment you identify and understand your audience and engage them with a relevant interactive advertising, you start creating the correct audience experience which is where mobile advertising begins. The work becomes harder when an Ad Network indulges into procurement where one could directly occupy inventory or use Real time bidding to earn the inventory at their own bids. This inventory is usually an area where an advertiser fixes his ads given that certain page has relevant traffic in relation to the ad itself. If this match of ad and traffic is well attributed, the result generally obtained is positive, better number of installs and RoI. The idea is to maximize the impact of the advertisement on the users using rich media and smart attribution analytics. Procurement is an important strand of advertising wherein the publisher meets the advertiser and forms a virtual commerce marketplace to educate their audiences about their apps.
Crap! It’s only sometimes a bald person comes across hair essentials advertising or a married person comes across Tinder app(ouch!). Depending upon the target audience you require, the landing platform for the app may vary. This has to be carefully examined and taken care of on a priority basis since it is not only a big wastage of time but also it is misleading and leaves a bad impression on the user base by the end of the day. The relevance of the target audience one reaches out to plays a significant role and is achieved by what we call attribution analytics. Ad Networks today make tailor made brand campaigns targeting relevant audience using attribution filers wherein the demographics of the required application are filtered and focused upon to achieve maximum output. Lenovo, for example used attribution analytics as a weapon and built a brand name it is today. The work gets harder when big brands have to cater unique needs and build strategic executions around it. Not only does attribution analytics provide unique intent insights but also blends the same with focused marketing spends on the pertinent market landscape. For those who believe attribution analytics is a difficult conduct, its no rocket science. It is simple optimization of user experience based on predictive algorithms.
With the changing technologies and growing intense competition, mobily models are becoming the base structures of every business. What was once a luxury is now a necessity. So, there is a page with prominent amount of traffic, an app with the user base matching the traffic of that very page looking for an inventory, we connect them. Had the game been so simple, the fun would have lost somewhere in the monotony of this give and take. Between the herd of app promoters, Affle offers something a little off the edge.
