    Doubling retention to grow faster: Storyly VP Daniele Di Nunzio

    Doubling retention to grow faster: Storyly VP Daniele Di Nunzio

    Mobile user acquisition is great. But for many apps it's not the problem.

    The problem: most apps’ retention rates are the bad news. If your app is a leaky bucket, pouring users out as fast as you dump them in, you're wasting tons of marketing dollars.

    But what if you could double retention, 2Xing standard industry mobile app user retention rates? How would that change your UA strategy?

    In this Growth Masterminds, host John Koetsier chats with Storyly VP Daniele di Nunzio. Storyly works with McDonalds, Domino’s, SoulCycle, and many more brands to drive deep user engagement.

    And, of course, to improve in-app user retention.

    More postbacks - good!

    More complexity - true.

    More opportunity - also true.

    Gadi and host John Koetsier chat about SKAdNetwork version 4's new postbacks, new lockable conversions, new random timer delays for postbacks 2 and 3, and how Apple's crowd anonymity works.

    They then take questions from a LinkedIn Live audience on what this all means, how it will all work, and how the ecosystem will adjust, adapt, and implement everything in SKAN 4.

    Creatives FTW: the evolution of playable ads

    Creatives FTW: the evolution of playable ads

    Somewhere around 2016 someone created the first playable ad ... a mini-game you could enjoy, and an ad that didn’t suck.

    Last year, according to a Liftoff report, “playable ads were the most effective ad format” in every month other than September, when they tied with another format.

    That makes sense: you're generating engagement with the ad. It's fun. Sometimes it's tied to a reward, and a playable ad often shows something of what the advertised app is all about.

    BUT there's been a big problem

    Playables have been hard to create. Slow. Expensive. Inflexible. Hard to use with user-generated content. Hard to use with influencers.

    Could there be a solution for that? Should you be looking harder at playables? Could they even solve for some of the targeting that privacy is removing?

    In this Growth Masterminds, we're sharing a LinkedIn Live host John Koetsier did with CRAFTSMAN+ CEO Alex Merutka.

    Beyond the install: Redefining mobile growth measurement with Apptopia & Digital Turbine

    Beyond the install: Redefining mobile growth measurement with Apptopia & Digital Turbine

    In the mobile app world … how do you know who’s winning? It is number of installs?

    We know that can be a faulty measurement: one that's easy to game, and easily misleading. Apptopia knows this. Their job is providing competitive intelligence across the digital ecosystem, and isolated install counts won’t cut it. So they’ve teamed up with Digital Turbine to do something different

    They’ve just released v2 of that “something different," the BRAG index. In this episode of Growth Masterminds, we chat with 2 experts about what that is ... and what they’ve learned:

     - Tara Kirkpatrick, analyst for Apptopia

     - Gregory Wester, SVP and CMO for Digital Turbine
