By combining user-level attribution data with marketing automation platforms, marketers can boost their marketing automation, improving their user retention and revenues, user-engagement and more. Here are a few examples of how marketers are use AppsFlyer’s attribution data to improve their Marketing Automation:
- A/B Testing User that come from paid media campaigns often engage differently from those that come from organic or owned media campaigns. Targeting A/B testing based on the attribution source often yields highly effective insights, especially within the first 30 days following the user’s install.
- Personalized Messaging, Onboarding and More
By passing the full attribution postback through to Marketing Automation platforms (including the Get Conversion data) marketers can personalize their new user onboarding experience as well as their overall user engagement based on the message or search keyword that drove the install.
- Use The Optimal Creative Format For Each User
Users who installed after seeing a video ad are often more likely to engage with video content, or be driven to take in-app action (e.g. purchases) after viewing a promotional video. Synchronizing attribution data with your marketing automation platform makes this level of targeting possible.
- Time-of-Day Optimization
Sending the right in-app message, offer or push message to the right user at the right time will dramatically improve your conversion rates. The first signal of what time of day and day of the week your new users will be conducive to promotional messages, are the time of day and day of the week when the original click and install occurred.
- Boost Social Referrals
With attribution insights baked into your marketing automation, you can always show the right social sharing and social referral options to the right customer. For example, target users who clicked on Tweets measured by OneLink with Share via Twitter CTAs. You can even target users who came from Facebook ad campaigns with Login with Facebook. Attribution data provides a powerful signal that can dramatically improve your mobile app performance. All you need, is to enable this integration and set your data free.
- Ad Targeting
Your ad targeting contains valuable personalization signals. For example, users who arrive from campaigns targeting male 18-24 year old’s in North America can be shown in-app content and messages that would be of interest to this population. Similarly, users that arrive from ads targeting a specific lifestyle verticals can be shown related content and offers.
