Gathering and analysing ad costs have never been easier with myTracker's single interface. A real time saver, it will spare you the effort of downloading data manually from multiple sources to consolidate into a spreadsheet. All needed data are already in myTracker. All it takes is specifying the ad rates, and you gain insight into your overall ad costs and key performance metrics such as ROI and ARPU.
A new Fraud Scanner tool by myTracker analyzes app installs for fraud by a large number of parameters and marks those that it considers fraudulent. This allows users to protect their application from unscrupulous advertising platforms and partners, thus significantly saving the advertising budget.
The ad platforms team at My.Games is responsible for monetizing and acquiring new users on gaming titles such as WarRobots, Hustle Castle, HAWK: Freedom Squadron and Left to Survive. In our new article we asked them to share how the team managed to significantly increase ROI and scale campaigns using LTV predictions by myTracker.
At WWDC, Apple announced that iOS 14, which is expected to be launched this September, will change the approach to handling the Identifier For Advertisers (IDFA). According to the new rules, all applications will have to request user consent before sending their data to advertising platforms.
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.
With myTracker, you can now count your revenues from different ad formats with a breakdown by devices and even by users. These advertising revenue streams have been added to the Report Constructor section of the tracker.
From now on, ad revenue will also be displayed as a separate dimension of the ARPU and LTV metrics. You will no longer have to make the calculation by yourself, which required consolidating several revenue sources, as you can now just view the total revenue generated by your app (breakdown by income type should be disabled).
