CHALLENGE

The Chinese market posed a unique challenge: while the mobile advertising market is not yet as standardized as other markets of scale, the unique combination of scale, growth and mobile business opportunity presents a highly attractive prospect for businesses. IGG needed an attribution and measurement solution that integrated with a different set of local media sources so they could identify their quality traffic sources.

ACTIVATION

IGG choose to extend their global relationship with AppsFlyer to their newest market, China. AppsFlyer’s deep integrations with China’s leading media sources and platforms delivered the robust coverage IGG needed.

IGG began working with a number of local ad partners including Bytedance, one of the largest advertising platforms in China, to drive quality installs at scale. Bytedance’s Toutiao app is among most popular news apps in China and their Today’s Headlines video platform allowed IGG to test every multiple ads using their native, short-form video ad platform. By measuring their performance through AppsFlyer, IGG was able to optimize both their creatives and their campaigns to improve their marketing and bottom-line business performance.

IMPACT

AppsFlyer’s took a great effort for it and helped companies like IGG to track and measure the user quality from different media sources. At the same time they are able to compare the performance of Chinese users with other countries, which is also important for them to make strategic decisions.
