Introducing conversion tracking (attribution)

Up to now you were able to see how many times your ads are shown in other apps and how many clicks they get. Monitoring your click-through rate can give you a good idea of which ad copy attracts user attention better and optimize your ads and campaigns. But whatever happened after the click was a mystery.

You had to rely on trying to deduct the effectiveness of your ads from the changes in your download numbers and, unless you were dedicating substantial budgets, it was really difficult to distinguish between the effect of your ads and organic fluctuations.

Today I’m happy to announce the immediate availability of our conversion tracking feature.

As you can see from the screenshot the feature is still in beta and is only available for Windows Phone apps and campaigns running AdDuplex SDK v.2 or higher.

The Secret Benefits of Cross-Promotion

Fotolia_43077848_M

Here’s a popular fairytale – when you finish developing your great app and publish it in the Store, you just relax, sit and wait for the users. “Build it and they will come!”.

And as we all know marketing campaigns are not that cheap. Besides, the vast majority of developers do not have a big marketing budget.

This time we’ve put together a list of the main advantages of AdDuplex cross-promotion network and what you as a developer can get from that. But first…
