Video: How to use econometric models to supplement SKAdNetwork for mobile measurement

December 8, 2020

Marketers & Data Scientists: Rather than hoping for the best outcome with the limited SKAdNetwork, why not try out a superior measurement approach that is granular, accurate and incremental?  Watch Anthony CrossShamanth M. Rao & Brian Krebs discuss this approach that Shamanth describes as “what might be the smartest way to approach an inherently messy paradigm”. Full video recording available below.

Thanks again to Shamanth Rao (CEO of Rocketship HQ) for hosting MetricWorks’ CEO, Brian Krebs on The Mobile User Acquisition Show and thanks to Anthony Cross (Fmr. VP of UA, Data Science & Product at Big Fish Games) for participating in this conversation.  This is a valuable episode that explains why SKAdNetwork is NOT enough for successful post-IDFA measurement and describes how one can easily supplement SKAdNetwork with econometric modeling and interrupted time series (ITS) to arrive at a robust future-proof measurement apparatus. MetricWorks’ measurement solution makes it easy for you to accomplish this.   It requires really low effort on your part. We invite you to test drive it for FREE

Measurement granularity is a major gap within SKAdNetwork and we’re glad to see The Mobile User Acquisition Show draw attention to this major issue. Our top-down incrementality measurement solution which can co-exist with SKAdNetwork, offers a comprehensive, granular and accurate alternative that addresses the following glaring issues with SKAdNetwork:

  1. SKAdNetwork will leave marketers with only 100 campaign IDs of granularity
  2. It does NOT offer a way to cohort KPIs by install date
  3. Critical post-install performance KPIs that are foundational to your mobile growth strategy today like retention, revenue, LTV, and ROAS, will disappear and be replaced by a single conversion value with its own significant limitations.

Does your measurement plan address the above gaps?  Time is running out and the competition is breathing down your neck. Why not make sure that your post-IDFA measurement plan is foolproof?  Contact us today to discuss how our measurement solution can put you in a stronger position post-IDFA and ahead of your competition.

Instead of focusing on “fingerprinting” or probabilistic modeling which Apple has already stated in their current terms will NOT be allowed, apply your precious cycles to quickly testing our top-down incremental approach which is the ONLY future-proof measurement solution available today.
