The Challenge

Increase scale through new channels while minimizing risk and operational costs

In addition to search advertising, DealDash has been in the programmatic space for a long time. While they’ve succeeded with these channels, particularly in capturing high-intent users, they continuously seek new ways to increase the impact of their marketing efforts and scale their user base.

Seasonal variations in consumer demand made it a bit more intricate for DealDash to maximize their UA efforts, posing a challenge for maintaining year-round campaign scale and effectiveness.

The Solution

AppLovin’s AI advancements boosted performance and enabled DealDash to scale their digital UA significantly

DealDash operates fast-paced, pay-to-bid auctions that increase by 1-cent increments. The key to effective UA efforts was attracting users who would complete the initial conversion, find enjoyment in the DealDash auction experience, and make repeat purchases.

DealDash found early success and cost-effective scale running Cost Per Purchase (CPP) campaigns on AppDiscovery. Since AppDiscovery helps power true discoverability at performance targets, AppLovin quickly became a trusted growth partner.

AppDiscovery’s recent AI advancements more accurately determine campaign spend allocation to best deliver on performance goals while requiring fewer inputs to calibrate its models. This resulted in improved performance of DealDash’s existing CPP campaigns and eliminated the high learning costs associated with launching new campaign initiatives. With the reduced barriers to testing a multi-campaign strategy, DealDash was able to run a new campaign type that optimized within a few days of launch and acquire incremental users that allowed them to achieve their growth goals.

Moreover, the system's increased adaptability and ability to recalibrate to goal changes quickly allowed DealDash to achieve stable growth, regardless of the season.
