Cityscoot is the number one service for self service electric scooters. Launched in 2016 in Paris, the brand has rapidly expanded to Nice, Milan, and Barcelona, offering more than 7000 scooters to all those who wish for an effective urban transport, face in the wind.

Activated sources: Facebook, Google and Snapchat.

     

City Targeting, a challenge for mobile app acquisition

 

Broadcasting acquisition campaigns on a city scale implies several constraints:

 

– The more restricted the targeting, the higher the acquisition costs.

 

– The visuals must be adapted to the usage and routes of each city in order to maintain good transformation rates and thus reach performance objectives.

How to keep acquisition costs low with specific targeting?

 

By adapting the OS and sources to each city: depending on the results of the campaigns, Addict Mobile’s teams increase investments in the sources or OS that deliver the best performance.

 

By varying the optimizations according to the sources: on Facebook and Google, campaigns that are optimized directly with an objective of first ride work better, unlike Snapchat, where campaigns optimized at the time of installation have better CPA (= cost per first ride).

 

By regularly renewing the targeted audiences: this avoids the phenomenon of Ad Fatigue and keeps acquisition costs low.

 

By deploying an adapted creative strategy to maximize conversion rates.

Languages, routes and promo codes are adapted to each location.

 

– Producing and A/B testing many different concepts has allowed us to identify the best conversion rates and keep acquisition costs low.

 

– Adapting these concepts to the specific formats of each source as well as to the localization also played a major role in achieving the objectives.

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.).

Our creative best practices

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 […]
