2nd confinement: reduction of CPM as a great opportunity for app install
As Europe is slowly going through reconfining process, what impact for the CPMs ? should we expect, will it be the same trends as during the first confinement?
To answer this question, we have analyzed the indicators of our campaigns in 6 European countries and got significant insights from them.
Declining CPMs as Black Friday approaches
This graph shows the CPMs in the main European countries (Belgium, Germany, Spain, France, UK, Italy).
The conclusions are clear:
As Black Friday (27 November) approaches, the curve should move upwards in all the countries observed. It is usually a very competitive period with high CPMs indeed. Retailers are heavily investing in advertising because it is a key period for them and we are expecting a potential catch up in sales due to Covid on S1 (maybe to say due to the first wave of confinement back in March). However, a significant drop in CPM was observed between October 27th and November 2nd. It should be noted that the measures were reinforced in these countries between 26 and 31 October.
- France: -13%,
- Belgium: -26%.
- Germany: -14%.
- Spain: -30%.
- United Kingdom: -31%.
- Italy: -33%.
A stable Frequency
Contrary to the previous confinement, the frequency (the number of times the ad is displayed to 1 user) remains relatively stable. No significant drop, compared to March, which suggests :
- There has been no massive stop of campaigns (maybe just the apps are directly impacted by the confinement) so no increase in the audience available.
- The apps that were positively impacted did not wait to seize this opportunity as they did in March, when advertisers took the time to understand the stakes and the weight of this crisis. As a result, the shortfall in available advertising spaces was quickly recovered.
There is therefore a real opportunity for your acquisition campaigns. By proposing adapted creatives that will maximize click through rates, you should see a decrease in your CPI compared to the decrease in CPM.
To be taken into account before the prices go up during the Holiday season and Black Friday!Do not hesitate to contact us to help you seize these opportunities and scale your mobile business.

Dating apps need acquisition to support their growth, revenue, and number of active users. Nevertheless, they are subject to constraints that are specific to this vertical. Choosing a strategy Before launching your campaigns, you need to think about the overall strategy for your app and your objectives: – Gender distribution: Separate by gender and tailored content to make sure you can control the investment and, therefore, the recruitment needs for each gender. – Objectives by gender and, therefore, adapted tracking: Make sure that the tracking on your MMP has been correctly tagged so you can track your performance in the best possible way, even if the events being tracked are different. – Objectives by country: it is also important to analyze app awareness in each country and for each gender as this will particularly affect the types of campaigns launched and the distribution of investments. – Investments according to seasonality: Dating apps are particularly affected by seasonality (vacations, back to school, weekends, Valentine’s Day, etc.). You need to correctly analyze the top recruitment periods for the app to know how to distribute the annual budget and not lose pockets […]Publié le 7 September 2022
A few months ago, we discussed the importance of creative in your mobile acquisition campaigns and how to find creative that works and positively impacts your performance. How do you achieve this goal? Here are our creative best practices: Personalize the message according to the various targets – The creatives must be tailored to each type of target audience. – This is even more important as the arrival of iOS 14 has restricted targeting options. The creative is thus a different way of targeting. – It is therefore crucial to understand your users’ motivations, needs and centers of interest. But also their fears, what stops them, what will make them hesitate to click. – This reflection on users and the levers to make them move on to action must be conducted upstream in order to brief the creative teams in a relevant fashion and produce effective creatives without losing time. – Be open to all types of tests, even the most daring, as no-one knows what may be effective and catchy. For the Cityscoot campaign, personalization of creatives allowed for procuring a CPA => 30% above average. For […]Publié le 13 July 2022
