Growing Apps on Facebook

The next block after the break was devoted to Growing Apps on Facebook, represented by two case studies. The first one was presented by Marie-Anne Lambert, Global Head of Social Paid & Mobile Marketing at Hellofresh, who gave us advice on how to grow mobile apps with Facebook Ads, followed by Elena Tsarkova, User Acquisition and Growth Specialist at Wooga, who talked about how to optimize Facebook events to achieve greater growth on a global scale.

Elena has left us with some food for thought: “Video ads can generate very high CTR and Retention Rate in the US and Europe, but in the rest of the world the banners are still a better option, due to the slowness of the Internet connection.”

Data Driven App Growth

The conference continued talking about Data Driven App Growth, with the participation of Bastian Winterkemper, Client Partner at Liftoff, who told us about benchmarking app marketing funnels using comparative data, followed by the talk of Michal Dec, Product Manager at Voluum, who told us about the Bayesian method in A/B Testing for app marketers.

App Store Optimization

App Store Optimization block was introduced by Adeline Lee, Product Manager at Clue, who told us how ASO and branding of the app should work together through the A/B Testing in orderto find the best converting results in the different app stores.

We also enjoyed a panel about ASO and iOS 11, with the participance of Moritz Daan, Partner & Co-Founder of Phiture; Giulia Tobaldin, ASO Marketing Manager at Zalando and George Natsvlishvili, ASO Manager at Shpock.

After the round table we heard Alexei Chemenda, Managing Director USA in Adikteev, talking about retargeting and giving out insights: “Do not wait for your users to churn – engage them right away by retargeting even the active users”.

The App Growth Stack

This block, consisting of two talks, was initiated by Ekaterina Petrakova, ASO Manager at Rocket Internet, who talked about the minimum viable app marketing stack, followed by the case study of Uniwhere, presented by its founder Gianluca Segato, who explained how they managed to reach the 100k users without investing anything in user acquisition. Some tips from Gianluca: have a good product that solves a need, connect with audience in a direct and human way, and of course, growth hacking.

The day ended with a talk given by Denys Zhadanov, VP of Marketing at Readdle, who talked about the future of the app marketing, and the conference ended up with a traditional quiz on App Marketing.
