Re-Engage With Lapsed Slots 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 Slots game app, you can tier your audience segments based on spend and activity level 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 Slots game app. Additional requirements included: support for multiple ad formats, global market scale, various devices for ad display, and creative personalization.
