If you had a chance to read our blog post about app marketing campaigns for any app category, you understand the value of engaging mobile users in personalized, contextual ways to achieve your app’s monetization goals.
Given the growing popularity of mobile apps, it’s important for brands to stand out from the crowd with effective app user engagement that re-engages latent users outside of the app with push messaging and pulls users deeper into the app’s conversion funnels with in-app messaging.
For every kind of app, acquiring loyal users and engaging those users in a meaningful, personalized way is essential to success. Of course offering a useful, informative, and fun app to being with is the number one way to accomplish this. But as mobile apps grow in popularity, so does the noise in our space. With so much competition for users’ attention, app marketers need to do more than simply “show up” to achieve repeat app usage and monetization. In addition to having a great app to begin with, metrics like event-tracking enable app marketers to identify the features that drive the most engagement. The use of app marketing techniques like in-app messaging and push messaging help point those features out to users, ensuring each user is guided through an app’s most valuable user-flows engaging them beyond the download.

During this time, apps have evolved in many ways, including how they are monetized. From the initial focus on encouraging (paid) downloads to the current focus on monetizing in-app usage, mobile app publishers are beginning to think about what’s next for monetizing the app. In particular, they’re thinking about how they can leverage insights and data to maximize success.
