Re-Engage With Lapsed Home Design App Users!

Reactivation Campaign

Reactivating your mobile user base is a key strategy to maintaining the longevity of your app. Using mobile programmatic media, you can target previous users of your app to do a specific action or become active app users again. Whether these users haven’t opened their app in a given period or have uninstalled the app, the goal is to re-engage these previously active users.

Segmentation Strategy

Audience segments are one of the most important pillars in retargeting campaigns. User segments based on historical behavior, such as spend and days lapsed, are used to inform ad messaging to retarget users. The creative ads are tailored to targeted segments. Each intersection list is a Targeting Group with a corresponding Creative Group.

In a Home Design app, you can target your lapsed users based on their spend level and last open. We'll work with you to create an ad strategy that is optimized for high engagement.

The Challenge

The app publisher needed a retargeting partner to reach users who have stopped engaging with their Home Design game app. Additional requirements included: support for multiple ad formats, various devices for ad display, and creative personalization.

Key Takeaways

Getting back the loyalty of lapsed users can sometimes be a challenge. Though, with the right reactivation campaign, you’ll be able to gain high lifetime value (LTV) users that will engage with your home design game app more so than before. 

A retargeting campaign we’ve done for a home design app resulted in a 56x greater ROI than its goal. The best performing ad creative was a display ad that presented a way for the user to win more features in the app. It resulted in a higher CR (9.52%), a 1.7x lower CPI, and a 1.5x better ROI.
