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.

Understand the SKAdNetwork data to maintain the performance level of your UA campaigns
Since May 2021 (iOS 14.5), Apple has implemented the ATT, which limits the feedback of data for advertising campaigns. Apple’s aim is to promote the protection of user data. The problem for the mobile industry: acquisition campaign data is no longer fed back as minutely and no longer allows for the reading performances in the same way within tracking tools. As a reminder, if the user opts in on the consent pop-up, then we can recover the IDFA and use deterministic attribution as a basis. The SKAdNetwork is the allocation solution offered by Apple. It serves as a back-up when the data is not received in the event users don’t opt in. Up to 80% less IDFA on IOS According to Appsflyer, 40 to 50% of people give their consent via the pop-up. This does not mean that the IDFA is fed back, because the user must also have agreed on the distribution platforms (such as Facebook, TikTok, Snapchat, etc.). In the end, we find ourselves with only 20 to 30% of the IDFA fed back, which is critical for the results to be read correctly. As the iOS paid campaign data is now limited, there is a real challenge, […]Publié le 25 January 2023

Dating apps: What are the User Acquisition constraints?
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 of profitability. Choosing distribution sources The inventory of acquisition sources […]Publié le 7 September 2022
