Programmatic User Acquisition Process

During the campaign exploration phase, our approach was to target a lookalike audience based on the first-party data provided by the client.

Integrated with all the major ad exchanges and processing over 3M ad requests per second, our bidder shortly received enough positive signals (impressions and installs) helping our models classify which user cohorts will install the app. This allowed our machine learning-based platform to build the initial targeting model focusing on app installs. 

Following the initial exploration, as more data was acquired, our programmatic bidder was able to train an advanced classification model to distinguish between the audience segments who would click the ad, install the app, and complete the registration and those who wouldn’t register. 

Having access to over 60 data-points before serving each impression helps our bidder identify the most prominent user segments to run effective UA and retargeting campaigns. Based on the learnings from the previous phases, a custom ML model was built. This model allowed us to focus on audience segments with a higher probability of becoming active traders (new users who have registered in the app, made their first transaction and most likely will keep making transactions). 

Finally, being able to classify and safely predict the most prominent audience cohorts to bid on, we managed to safely scale the campaign while topping the KPI by a significant margin of 40%.

Campaign Results

Campaign Scaling

The initial campaign setup targeting lookalike audience based on the existing app audience had outperformed the cost per trader acquisition KPI by 60% in the first week of running the campaign. 

As the learning progressed and our bidder collected more positive signals to predict which audience cohorts will more likely to convert by becoming active traders, we were able to scale the campaign almost twice while topping the cost per trader acquisition KPI by 41%.

Over time, being able to better classify the audience cohorts and bid more precisely, we managed to double the IPM (Installs per Mille – installs per 1000 impressions) by week 5.

Deposits per Trader

Our platform’s ML capabilities allow our programmatic bidder focus on cohorts of users with the highest potential of becoming recurring traders.

In the case of Exness Go, by targeting audiences based on their predicted gender, age class and affinity to the Exness Go app, we have managed to acquire highly engaged user cohorts who will make multiple deposits to their account. This approach allowed us to increase the average number of deposits per trader by a significant 44% by week 5 into running the campaign.
