  5. 5. Now you can have the answers. And the ability to act on those answers. Google Play does its part by providing a framework that ties every one of your app installs back to the source. And the Fiksu user acquisition platform takes it to a deeper level by anonymously linking each user’s post- install actions and tying each distinct action back to the traffic source. And Fiksu makes this intelligence actionable by optimizing ad spend in real time to these sources. So you can invest your ad dollars on the advertising that’s truly driving your business. There’s no more guessing. No more risks. Or compromised results. AT LAST! 3 | Fiksu | Mobile App Marketing eBook Series | www.fiksu.com/ebooks
  6. 6. Google Play and Fiksu offer an innovative marketing approach that can benefit your business in exceptional new ways – ways that are different than what you may be accustomed to with your iOS marketing program. This eBook gives you an overview of the key Google Play differences, and how you can exploit them to improve app discovery, drive more installs, and generate long-term, loyal app usage. This eBook focuses on four key differences: 1. Deeper Marketing Attribution And Optimization 2. Organic Discovery That Is “Search” Driven 3. More Cost - Effective Ad Networks 4. Immediate App Approval Process Let’s explore each in further detail. 4 | Fiksu | Mobile App Marketing eBook Series | www.fiksu.com/ebooks
  7. 7. WHAT’S DIFFERENT ABOUT GOOGLE PLAY? 1. ATTRIBUTION & OPTIMIZATION 1 Marketing Attribution - Insights Into What’s Working Google Play provides a marketing attribution framework that gives you insights that help you make more informed advertising decisions. A piece of tracking code called an “Android Referrer” anonymously “attributes” each of your app installs back to the ad network and ad creative from which that install originated. This marketing attribution gives you valuable marketing intelligence, while balancing the need for user privacy. But this is just the beginning. Google Play integrates with the Fiksu for Mobile Apps™ user acquisition platform to: 1) Take these insights to a much deeper level; and 2) Make them actionable in real time Fiksu anonymously tracks each user’s post-install events (launches, purchases, registrations, game levels, conversions, etc.) together with performance variables such as rank, installs, cost, and traffic source, for highly granular market intelligence. So you can have the information you need to make the data-driven marketing decisions that you as a marketer need, and are accustomed to. 5 | Fiksu | Mobile App Marketing eBook Series | www.fiksu.com/ebooks
  8. 8. WHAT’S DIFFERENT ABOUT GOOGLE PLAY? 1. ATTRIBUTION & OPTIMIZATION 1 Real-Time Optimization - Turn Insights Into Results What are insights without the power to act on them? With Google Play and Fiksu, you have both. The Fiksu platform uses sophisticated, predictive algorithms to convert marketing attribution into marketing action. Based on the marketing attribution data, Fiksu optimizes your advertising to the traffic sources that most cost-effectively deliver the users who take the actions you want. So you can spend ad dollars wisely and, most importantly, based on performance. Real-time optimization helps to: · Drive high volumes of loyal users · Achieve lower Cost Per Install (CPI) · Monetize more users and increase Average Revenue Per User (ARPU) · Realize higher advertising ROI 6 | Fiksu | Mobile App Marketing eBook Series | www.fiksu.com/ebooks

  10. 10. WHAT’S DIFFERENT ABOUT GOOGLE PLAY? 2. ORGANIC DISCOVERY THAT IS “SEARCH” DRIVEN 2 We all know how important organic discovery is. Organic users seek your app on their own – without paid advertising. These users are not only “free,” but are much more likely to become loyal users than those who install your app after viewing an ad. The good news for Android app marketers is that you have more tools to drive organic users on Google Play than you do in the Apple's App Store. Google Play and the App Store use very different methods of determining rank, and have different capabilities for supporting app discovery. In the App Store, rank is the driving force behind organic discovery. Rank is determined primarily by the number of installs, and how recent the installs are. Apps that cannot sustain large numbers of installs find that their rank slips quickly. 8 | Fiksu | Mobile App Marketing eBook Series | www.fiksu.com/ebooks
  11. 11. WHAT’S DIFFERENT ABOUT GOOGLE PLAY? 2. ORGANIC DISCOVERY THAT IS “SEARCH” DRIVEN 2 In contrast, users find apps on Google Play via a combination of searching and browsing. While app rank is critical for generating organic users on iOS, on Google Play - search - not rank, is the primary Organic App means of organic discovery. Approximately 75% of organic downloads on Google Play originate from Discovery on a user search. About half come from searching for a brand title, and one quarter from a more generic Google Play search. Data shows that users who find an app through search are 50% more likely to become long- Brand search: 50% term, loyal app users. General search: 25% Google Play provides a robust search capability, Browse: 20% making it easier for users to search for apps of interest no matter what the rank. Rank, while still important, holds much less sway over how an app is discovered on Google Play. A study by Fiksu determined that 75% of users found apps on Google Play through a search. 9 | Fiksu | Mobile App Marketing eBook Series | www.fiksu.com/ebooks
  12. 12. GOOGLE SEARCH RANK ALGORITHM THE GOOGLE PLAY SEARCH ALGORITHM CONSIDERS THREE VARIABLES THAT DETERMINE AN APP’S SEARCH RANK: 1 Keyword In The App Title The most important element for Google Play rank. The proper keyword can increase search rank 80 to 100 spots. 2 Keyword Frequency In The App Description When a keyword is used multiple times in the app description, rank is increased, often up to 20 spots. 3 Number Of Net Installs Google’s ranking algorithm is skewed in favor of apps that show user retention. The more “net” installs, the higher the rank. The Google algorithm tracks uninstalls and takes into account only apps that remain installed. 10 | Fiksu | Mobile App Marketing eBook Series | www.fiksu.com/ebooks
  13. 13. WHAT’S DIFFERENT ABOUT GOOGLE PLAY? 2. ORGANIC DISCOVERY THAT IS “SEARCH” DRIVEN 2 Google Play’s search capabilities level the playing field, allowing lesser-known apps and brands additional opportunities to reach prospective users. High volumes of low- Google Browse Rank Algorithm cost installs will not Browse rank in Apple's App Store is determined by recent help with browse installs, and is driven primarily by current overall install rank in Google Play- activity. Users who install an app positively affect rank, even if they decide to uninstall it. In Google Play, however, it’s all about long-term browse rank is determined by the number of net installs. retention. The Google ranking algorithm takes into account only apps that remain installed. The more net installs, the higher the browse rank. In short, high volumes of low cost installs will not help with browse rank in Google Play – it’s all about long-term retention. 11 | Fiksu | Mobile App Marketing eBook Series | www.fiksu.com/ebooks
  14. 14. WHAT’S DIFFERENT ABOUT GOOGLE PLAY? 3. MORE COST-EFFECTIVE ADVERTISING 3 To be successful in today’s competitive market, an app needs to be backed by solid marketing and advertising programs. Just like iOS, the Android ecosystem has dozens of third-party ad networks that perform well to drive user acquisition. Overall, there is a greater supply of ad inventory for Android compared to iOS. A recent analysis of available advertising inventory shows that $ Android is able to deliver 12% more ad inventory than iOS. This extra inventory has driven down Android advertising rates substantially. Fiksu estimates the cost of that inventory is 40% lower than for iOS. Android marketers therefore can expect the cost to acquire a user to be much less for Android and than iOS. Lower ad costs also give you an opportunity to have an even greater impact on your app rank and organic discovery. The good news for advertisers is that once improved rank is achieved, rank does not degrade as quickly once an advertiser stops spending. As such, the advertiser continues to enjoy incremental organic downloads beyond those generated during a campaign. 12 | Fiksu | Mobile App Marketing eBook Series | www.fiksu.com/ebooks
  15. 15. WHAT’S DIFFERENT ABOUT GOOGLE PLAY? 4. IMMEDIATE APP APPROVAL 4 The app market moves fast and is constantly changing. Marketers with the ability to adapt quickly can get a significant competitive edge. Google Play provides a perfect environment for apps that need to adapt quickly to changing market dynamics. Developers can react to feedback quickly and have an app update available on Google Play literally in a few hours. In contrast, updating an app can take weeks with iOS due to the App Store’s submission and approval process. Android developers can quickly iterate on designs, and can quickly test features, promotions or offers that work best. And, with Android’s lower advertising costs, it’s also a very cost-effective platform to hone your marketing approach. 13 | Fiksu | Mobile App Marketing eBook Series | www.fiksu.com/ebooks

  18. 18. TIPS FOR ANDROID MARKETING SUCCESS TIP:3 OPTIMIZE YOUR APP FOR SEARCH In Google Play, search is the primary means of organic discovery. You can greatly influence search rank, and therefore app discovery, by following these tips. Keyword in the App Title A keyword in your app title is the most important element that impacts search rank. The right keyword in your title can affect rank position 80 to 100 spots. Identify your most successful keyword and include it in the title. Keywords in the App Description and Promo Text Within the app description, frequency of keywords increases search rank. Try to use a keyword multiple times. This can impact rank position 10 to 20 spots. Also, include the app name in the body of the app description. Unlike iOS, the body description is searched under Google Play. Since updating your submission is easy and quick, you should consider experimenting with different keywords and combinations to see which yield better results. 16 | Fiksu | Mobile App Marketing eBook Series | www.fiksu.com/ebooks
  19. 19. 5 STEPS TO IMPROVE ORGANIC DISCOVERY ON GOOGLE PLAY 1 Define keywords that are relevant to your app (Use Google AdWords Traffic Estimator to help you prioritize) 2 Include top keywords in the app title 3 Include app name and all other keywords multiple times in description. Use city and country names if the description of geographies are relevant to your app 4 Test search rank for all your keywords 5 Measure and optimize your results from search on keywords 17 | Fiksu | Mobile App Marketing eBook Series | www.fiksu.com/ebooks
  20. 20. TIPS FOR ANDROID MARKETING SUCCESS TIP:4 CONDUCT LONGER-TERM AD CAMPAIGNS WITH MULTIPLE NETWORKS Google Play’s ranking algorithm rewards long-term user acquisition - apps that acquire and retain users are rewarded with higher ranks. Therefore, advertising campaigns should be run over a longer term and sustained over several months, as opposed to the short bursts of activity often seen in the iOS market. The best strategy is to try to work with as many traffic sources as possible. This will enable you to reach your largest potential audience, realize the lowest-possible cost per acquisition, and also protect your app from audience saturation. Fiksu works with all the major ad networks, real-time bidding platforms, and incentivized download programs. This gives you access to all the major traffic sources with just one lightweight SDK and one reporting dashboard. Work with many traffic sources to: • Identify the best-performing sources • Drive installs from more loyal users • Insulate your app from audience saturation • Keep your costs down 18 | Fiksu | Mobile App Marketing eBook Series | www.fiksu.com/ebooks
  21. 21. TIPS FOR ANDROID MARKETING SUCCESS TIP:5 TEST YOUR APP PRESENTATION ON GOOGLE PLAY Take advantage of the fact that you can update your app immediately on Google Play. Test the way your app is presented. Try different app titles, and meta tags. Test the app name in the logo. Explore new ways to describe your app, and look for new keywords. You can apply these learnings to your iOS versions and reduce your costs and risks. 19 | Fiksu | Mobile App Marketing eBook Series | www.fiksu.com/ebooks
  22. 22. TIPS FOR ANDROID MARKETING SUCCESS TIP:6 TARGET LOYAL USERS – NOT JUST INSTALLS To build a thriving app business, you need installs by loyal users. It is loyal users who use your app repeatedly, make purchases, register, or take other actions that tie back to an ROI. An install, or even an app launch, does not mean that you have a loyal user. In fact, studies show that many users who install an app never even use it, or abandon it after a single use. It is loyal users on which you ultimately build your app business. Loyal user acquisition also benefits your rank on Google Play, since Google Play’s rank algorithm rewards retention. Try to optimize your Android marketing efforts on traffic sources that are delivering your loyal users. Use the Google Play and Fiksu attribution capabilities to help you understand the traffic sources driving your loyal users, and Fiksu’s optimization capabilities to go get them. 20 | Fiksu | Mobile App Marketing eBook Series | www.fiksu.com/ebooks
