How to Optimize Campaigns Toward Downstream Events
We work with a lot of clients who want to optimize towards downstream events to ensure they’re receiving highly engaged users and maximizing their ROAS. Events like driving registrations, free trials, subscriptions, and orders invite users to engage with the app past the install and drive additional value. Installs are valuable, but if users aren’t engaging further with your app, then there’s less value in the user. That’s why we’ve expanded our inventory to include CPA models and placed an emphasis on monitoring campaign benchmarks and KPIs, to accommodate this industry shift towards downstream events.
So, how can you ensure you’re getting the most engaged users? Determine downstream KPIs and benchmarks to optimize across all partners and advertising channels. Keep in mind that KPIs should be unique for each channel to account for variations between inventory and targeting capabilities. Next, identify the strongest sources that are actively hitting your downstream events and create a whitelist to scale your highest performing sources. As you maintain this strategy throughout your campaign, you’ll see how focusing your efforts on the top-performing sources will not only drive the highest quality of engaged users, but also improve your ROAS.
