Last Update há 5 meses

We mainly have two kinds of traffic: Incent and Non-Incent which further have various campaign categories/types as explained below:-

Getting Started with Incent / Rewarded Campaigns

Incent installs are actually motivated install i.e the user who install the advertiser's app get incentive for doing that and hence cost per acquisition is very low as compared to Non-Incent.

Based on our experience, we have noticed that Incent installs work good for Games comparatively and hence very much recommended for games. The main advantage of Incent install is that it's really very cost effective, Incent install will cost you about $0.1 per conversion whereas Non-Incent would cost you $1 and hence Incent installs are 10 times cheaper comparatively but give similar or better results generally.

Overview of Campaign Types (Incent):-

CPC (Cost per Click)

Incentivized CPC campaigns are a great tool to promote your apps without any prerequisites and requirements. This type of campaigns is prompting users to install & run your app and charges users per click. This is an alternative to our Standard CPI campaigns if you don't have a tracking solution integrated in your app. Incent CPC campaigns are capable of delivering the same amount of traffic as CPI campaigns with external tracking. We perform sophisticated fraud checks on devices, users, traffic sources, providers, bot detection and other data points to retain a high click quality, usually resulting in an installation rate of 40% - 80% (the percentage of clicks resulting in installations).

CPI (Cost per Install)

  • Standard:
In this type of rewarded install, users are going to download and install your app in return for a reward. Depending on the selected tracking method users will also open the app at least once.

  • High Retention:

High Retention campaigns require users to keep your app for 3 days. Any user who uninstalls sooner won't count as conversion, so the total number of installs delivered will be above your campaign volume. HR campaigns come with extensive statistics and don't require any SDK.

  • Managed (High Volume):

Managed campaigns are the way to go if you need to push large volumes in a short time. Please keep in mind that the actual performance depends on your bid, so make sure to contact your account manager before creating a managed campaign. Managed campaigns cannot be paused or terminated by yourself and are managed by steamseo.

  • Search (Standard):

Search campaigns will redirect to a landing page and give the users keywords they are supposed to use for a Google Play search. Multiple keyword sets can be entered by separating them with a semicolon (;), they will be distributed evenly among users. Make sure the app is within the first 100 search results for each keyword set and targeted country.
