Advantages of using mobile apps in affiliate marketing
Long-term communication with user
Working with apps you don’t have to worry that users close tabs and leave the website. All these moments are impossible after the app’s installation because it appears on the main screen and reminds the user all the time. Moreover, Push ads give additional channels for communication with users – promotions, bonuses, special offers. It will help to increase CR with free leads.
Apps presented in official stores have a higher trust level in comparison with one-page websites. Also advertising in the applications gives better results than working with direct offers. You get better CR and other parameters. However don’t forget about additional action – download of application which is also very important and is one of the key moments in working with that kind of traffic.
Wide range of traffic sources
Among popular Facebook and Instagram sources there are other ways to run traffic from mobile apps – in-app ads, Google Universal App Campaign and push notifications.
- organic Top position in AppStore and Google Play
First, you can use keywords to set your mobile app in the TOP. This method will help you to get quality leads, but you can hardly influence the amount of requests in the search. It’s worth considering all details using keywords in the description to avoid ban.
Another way to gain TOP rank is using fake reviews, ratings, keywords and downloads. After the app gets top position in rating – it’s important to remind users about your app using push- notifications. In future users will purchase directly from the app which will make your traffic more valuable.
- Facebook and Instagram targeting
In this case you just download your app to Facebook, get approval and run traffic. No need to get to the top listing.
Before using this method you should work on app design. Look at other similar apps, but don’t forget about your special details which will stand your app among others. Then download it to Facebook SDK, where you can monitor all actions which users made in your app, in other words you get statistics on all events in Facebook from the application.
