Programmatic campaign for a food delivery app
How performance media-mix and in-app advertising help increase app installs for food delivery service
A food delivery company approached NT Technology to put together a customer acquisition and performance campaign trying programmatic as the primary tool of success.Our client uses the mobile app to provide services for his customers so the main goal was to acquire new users at a low cost per install and boost installations.
We conducted upfront research before the launching ad campaign to better understand the behavior of the target audience and which factors can lead to conversion. Based on data, our team has found some insights that we applied in the ad campaign later. For instance, uncovering the time of a day when users are the most likely to order a food delivery allows us to optimize settings of day-time targeting options. It helped us to communicate with users at the right moment with a high likelihood of conversion.
As we need to work on several areas (increase installs and orders), the campaign was a mix of channels and ad formats for different stages of the media strategy. In order to reach a maximum number of users, we used a combination of banner and video ads for the first stage. Lately, we set up retargeting to re-engage users who saw ads to increase in-app conversions.
For boosting orders through the app, we use a scratch-banner that enables users to interact by scratching the highlighted field for a discount on their first delivery. The opportunity to interact with ads significantly increase users’ engagement and ad effects, boosting the overall campaign results. For instance, we managed to reach 1.75% – 2.56% CTR with interactive banners while the CTR for static was around 0.54% on average.
Leveraging both manual and automatic optimization, we surpassed expectations of the client and achieved a 46.7% increase in app installs and a 3.1 times increase in orders for delivery through the app.
