Do’s and Don’ts of Growing Your App in the Age of Privacy
The privacy-focused age is looming over app marketers, and many of them view it as a doom-and-gloom kind of an era. Their attitude is caused by two key challenges we all face: it’s harder to target and it’s harder to measure.
There’s no denying that these two challenges are relevant. However, don’t let negative thoughts consume you! There is a course of action that will help you ensure app growth in the age of privacy.
During App Growth Week, Salah Mustafa, Principal Performance Marketing Consultant at Phiture, shared his do’s and don’ts of growing apps when taking into account all the major factors related to privacy, such as:
- Introduction of iOS 14 and SKAdNetwork
- Android privacy sandbox
- Chrome phasing out browser cookies
In his speech, Salah provides you with a blueprint for strategic app growth, describing what and why you should do to overcome all the obstacles. Find out about the steps mobile marketers can take to succeed by watching the recording below.
Uncover New Insights with a Holistic Attribution Strategy
Every app marketer wants to see a full picture of their users’ journey. However, not everyone is able to connect the dots and piece it together.
The reason for that may be the absence of a holistic attribution strategy, explains Tatiana Hofftman, Product Team Lead at Adjust.
Tatiana uncovers how a holistic approach to mobile attribution helps your rise to new heights and why you should include assisted installs into your strategy. She explains the way assisted installs allow you to set up full-funnel visibility as well as:
- Get a comprehensive understanding of users’ journey before attribution;
- Assess the performance of your marketing channels;
- Know exactly which ads from assisting channels influence your user flow;
- Make data-driven decisions when it comes to optimization.
