Why is it important to keep track of your ad performance?
You're spending money on advertising, but how do you know if it's actually working? The answer lies in your performance metrics. By analyzing your ad performance, you can clearly see what's working and what's not. Understand your actual level of app performance so that you can refine and adjust your app marketing strategy based on data-driven insights.
Which metrics should I focus on for analyzing my ad performance?
There are a few key metrics you should focus on: impressions, clicks, conversions, cost per click, cost per conversion, and costs. Keep an eye on those numbers and see how they change over time - that will give you a good idea of whether or not your ads are performing well and which areas need improvement.
Why did my installs drop?
First, try to understand what causes the change. Was it organic or paid traffic? Have you had fewer ads running during that specific time that impacted your growth? If pausing or decreasing your ads significantly decreased your installs, you should consider re-activating the ads. Have you done any metadata changes recently and stopped targeting specific keywords? If removing keywords significantly decreased your keyword rankings with good search volume, you should consider adding them again.
How can I improve conversion rates between core ad metrics?
First, try to understand the root cause of the low conversion rate. At which step of the conversion funnel do users drop off? Is it because users need to be convinced to click on your ad once they see it? Then you should focus on improving your ad assets. Make sure they appeal to your target audience and show what makes your app unique. Or is it because users are not convinced to install your app once they click on your ad? Then you should focus on improving your store listing and double-check the relevancy of your ads. Remember, your paid ads and your organic store listing should be aligned.
How to find new keywords for my ASA campaign?
First, include keywords that you also optimize for organically. It will be a win-win situation, helping you to boost organic and paid performance! Run discovery campaigns to identify new keywords. It will give you great insights into how the algorithm sees your app and under which search term it gets recognized. Next, get inspiration from competitors. Check which keywords they use in their ASO strategy (Competitor keywords) and which keywords they are bidding on within Apple Search Ads (Search Ads Intelligence). Last but not least, brainstorm keywords that are relevant to your app, describe features, or ask friends how they would describe your app.
