In the fast-paced mobile marketing world, app developers and marketers have a continuous
goal of maximizing their Return on Investment (ROI). This pursuit is prompted by the stark
reality: approximately 75% of iOS apps fail to yield substantial returns. To delve deeper into this
topic, our recent webinar, “Mastering ROI for iOS Apps: Advanced UA Strategies and Hybrid
Measurement,” brought together forward-thinking industry experts to share the insights on
leveraging cutting-edge tech stack, navigating UA trends and challenges, exploring growth

BI solutions like Tableau, Microsoft Power BI, Looker, ClickHouse allow companies to set up attribution models, organize, store, and update data the way their businesses demand it. As many top mobile ad tech solutions, SplitMetrics Acquire, an Apple Search Ads automation platform, supports a No-Code BI Integration.

And watch the webinar recording to dive into the hybrid measurement topic and have all the cards under your sleeve.
