Reduce Your UA Complexity With Automation

User Acquisition Automation & LTV Prediction For UA Optimization

Unfortunately, complexity is no stranger to mobile UA teams.  Every week, they have to contend with large data sets that have to be assembled from disparate sources to then sift and analyze the data and coordinate numerous campaigns that involve a broad mix of ad channels.  According to Adjust, “the average marketer runs 19 campaigns with 14 different networks“. Of course, this translates into the bulk of the marketer’s day being spent on data management.  

Through numerous client conversations, we have confirmed that data management and the avalanche of tedious, manual tasks are major pain points. Many are struggling with reducing their daily time spent on campaign management which is a collection of manual and often repetitive steps that seem to explode with campaign scaling.  These steps are ripe for automation and our clients witness that as early as the first 30 days of using our platform.  The added bonus is that these tasks can be executed in real-time based on live monitoring of the click stream by our platform.  So it never sleeps on the job!  This approach liberates the UA team to focus on the higher value aspects of mobile UA such as devising strategies, setting goals and creatively adapting to fresh changes in the market.

Another area that our clients find ripe for automation is the bid and budget optimization process. This is where our platform uses real-time performance monitoring to adjust bids, reallocate budgets from lower to higher performing ad channels and pause campaigns based on pre-defined automation rules and business goals.  Once again, all the manual tasks and repetitive checking across different dashboards and spreadsheets are eliminated to free up large blocks of time needed for the higher value tasks that are critical to successfully differentiating from your competitors.

Rapid Change In UA Presents New Opportunities for Scaling Via Automation

User Acquisition Automation & LTV Prediction For UA Optimization

Thanks Joe Kim for posting the great article about the death of performance marketing.  We certainly agree that things are changing rapidly in performance marketing/user acquisition but think that it is far from dead. It is actually going through a metamorphosis.

For one, we believe that LTV prediction engines wrapped in automation will save performance UA as real performance and scale are VERY realizable across leading ad channels such as  ironSource, Unity Technologies, AppLovin, Vungle and all of the other major SDK networks. When Facebook and Google shift to the new setup (described in Joe’s article), the ability to perform will require any UA team to shift their skill sets to become experts at wielding sophisticated SaaS automation technology like MetricWorks UA Command Center. 

Secondly, with a UA automation platform and LTV prediction engine that works seamlessly across all networks, one will be able to quickly and easily predict where the most profitable AND scalable venue is to spend one’s money. Currently, UA teams waste significant amounts of time accomplishing these tasks manually with large error margins.  Herein lies a further opportunity to save valuable time, reduce the probability of costly errors and to be agile by responding in real-time to data feeds from the variety of mobile ad channels.  This capability becomes even more crucial when teams have shrunk in response to the market changes described in Joe’s article. Once again, it is the skills shift that will be important in order for UA teams to take advantage of these new tools to take their game to the next level.
