Retargeting: Our key tips for effective campaigns
For an eligible user retargeting, users must have an installed app so that we could observe a period of inactivity. This period will be defined by a window of inactivity set differently according to each tracking tool. On Adjust it is set to 7 days whereas on Appsflyer it is set to 90 days.
Allocation windows are managed in different ways depending on the MMP and the tools’ sources in which the campaigns are disseminated. Control of reallocation windows is therefore key to effectively retarget users.
Mastering the reallocation windows
Configuring the attribution windows used by a tracking tool according to your in-app path is therefore the first step to an optimal result of your campaigns.
– To ensure that your data is consistent across all platforms, measure it on your tracking tool rather than on the various source’s SDKs.
– ⚠️ Do not set your windows to 0: Some actors may ask you to set your reallocation window to 0 but it constitutes installation theft. If you change this window on your tracking tool, the change will affect all sources. Overall, you would get your install and have succeeded in your retargeting, but you would have paid twice for it.
Mapping the user journey and segmenting the audience
To set up a good strategy, you must first map the entire user journey and define conversion or repeat rates for each user’s action. We know when to retarget the user, by identifying breakpoints when he does not continue the initially planned journey on the platform. For example, it can be the added item to the shopping cart without further purchasing, or a registration start without finalizing it.
This graph tells us that only half the users who have installed the app will register in it. Also, 1 out of 10 users adds an item to their cart and only 1 out of 100 users makes a purchase. As the funnel progresses there are also losses of users. Two elements must be worked on:
– Work on the user journey: user experience in the app.
– Work on the retargeting: Making sure that users who register will also add an item to their cart and/or purchase an item. Promo codes and offers can be promoted in order to incite users to progress in the funnel and generate revenue in the app.
Identifying how often the user makes purchases before they stop using the app allows you to retarget at the right time. The scenarios will depend on your in-app journey and your internal tools that allow you to identify these friction points.
Adapting to scenarios and users
Once the different behaviors are identified based on user profiles, we are able to decide on the appropriate targeting in order to launch our retargeting campaigns.
The final step is to personalize the messages and visuals based on the target audience. The more personalized the message, the more likely we will be able to achieve our goal. We must use visuals and appropriate messages that encourage the action.
In 2020, 85% of 185K retargeted customers made at least 1 purchase following our campaign for our customer Intermarché. Also, discover the Banxy retargeting strategy too via Linked-in.

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
