Key Takeaways

A user acquisition campaign that we’ve done for a storytelling app was able to surpass the ROI goal by 162%. We utilized different creative approaches for the campaign while highlighting on the interactive aspects that a storytelling app contains. The creatives that achieved an optimal performance were the interstitial and video ad formats. Both displays the gameplay of the storytelling app where deciding on an action leads to different paths of the story. 

Between the two ad creatives the video ad showed a 1.4x better ROI compared to the other. Though, the interstitial did perform better on all other metrics such as the CR, CTR, IR, and CPI. Interested in knowing how to take you ad creatives to the next level? Check this article out!
