Ever since the release of Apple Search Ads, they have served as a great supplement to improve your app’s ASO. Not only do they assist in ASO efforts but Apple Search Ads allow you to reach audiences you might be missing. But, the main question on all our minds is how can you reduce your costs and make your campaigns as efficient as possible? Our Search Ad Management Service answers that question. Here’s some background on Search Ads, and what we’ve done for our clients.
Creating the proper Campaign and Ad Group is the first step in decreasing cost and your Search Ad effectiveness. Without giving away all of our secrets, here are a few tips to get you started.
Search Ads Tips:
- Create multiple Campaigns & Ad Groups based on your goals utilizing Search Match, Exact Match, Broad Match & Branded Terms.
- Assign a tiered bid structure to focus on your most desirable keywords.
- Consistently optimize campaign keywords and negative keywords based on results.
- Review data (at least) weekly to understand your CPT & CPA costs.
We manage a number of our clients’ Search Ads campaigns, and we’ve put together data from a campaign we’ve been running for a month. Here is an example of what the correct organization and optimization of Search Ad campaigns can do.
Tap-Through Rate & Conversion Rate
After the initial set up in week 1 we achieved an average tap-through rate of 4.95% and an average conversion rate of 35.43%. With some modifications and adjustments to the keywords in each Campaign/Ad Group we were able to improve both these metrics: 0.32% for TTR and 4.87% for Conversions within the first 3 weeks.
The main measurement for Search Ad efficiency and effectiveness is of course the costs associated. In week 1, our average cost statistics showed: $0.08 per impression, $1.42 per tap and $4.03 per conversion. As we analyzed various Campaign and Ad Group elements, all these costs decreased. The price per impression decreased 25% to $0.06, Cost per Tap (CPT) decreased 21.13% to $1.12 and Cost per Acquisition (CPA) decreased 25.06% to $3.02.
