You will be able to evaluate the effectiveness of promotion by pre-installs, to understand what advantages and disadvantages it has in your case.

Any marketing campaign for a mobile app essentially aims at finding the most effective, highest-conversion advertising strategy encouraging app purchases and installs at the lowest cost. Advertising channel performance can be assessed directly with post-click attribution. Each app install is matched to a click on a link or banner to help conclude which advertisement performs better.
However, the user does not always take an immediate interest in the product or app after viewing the banner or reading the advertisement. A few hours later, having read the entire news feed, the user thinks back about the product he has taken interest in. Then the user finds the app in the app store and decides to install it.
In such a case, it would be reasonable to attribute this action of the user to that particular advertisement since it caught his attention and made him install the app. Attribution of the user's actions to particular advertisements, even if not clicked immediately, is called post-view, or view-through, attribution.
Nowadays, virtually every app that offers paid traffic acquisition has a mobile tracking and analytics tool. This is hardly a surprise — people spend time and money building and promoting their games and apps, and expect that process to pay off. They also want to be able to see how well their product is performing and what needs to be improved. Tracking systems give user acquisition statistics and show how your audience behaves in your app. This gives you a deeper insight into their agenda and choices, where they come from, why they came to you, what they might like to purchase, and what advertising format will be the most effective.
