In the case at hand, the goal was to optimize the campaign targeting and increase the profitability, which was accomplished by increasing purchase-to-install Day 3 and Day 7 ratio.
Test campaigns were run for a period of three weeks in order to gather a significant sample of data that could be analyzed afterward. Based on said data, optimizations were applied to the campaigns with a goal of increasing the purchase-to-install Day 3 and Day 7 metrics. The terms Day 3 and Day 7 are shortened to D3 and D7 in the latter part of the text.
The campaign used as an example will be a male audience targeting Huuuge Casino campaign in US.
Through optimization based on granular analysis of targeting groups, Huuuge Games succeeded in increasing the profitability of their Huuuge Casino campaigns.
