How to use the Acquisition Data in MoEngage

After MoEngage starts receiving data from Kochava, you can leverage this data in the following ways:

User Attributes

We track two User Attributes - "Campaign Name" and "Publisher Name". These attributes can be used in your campaigns, segmentation, and analytics. The Publisher Name and Campaign Name of Install give you an added insight into the persona of the user and you can leverage this data to enhance your on-boarding campaigns, user funnels and in general, personalize your marketing automation activities on MoEngage. The next sections list a few popular use-cases on how you can leverage this data in MoEngage.


Analyze the performance of different publishers

Kochava Integration can help in analyzing the effectiveness of your app install campaigns and sources in MoEngage. With the help of the data you are already tracking in MoEngage like user events, conversion goals, and uninstalls, you can compare the performance of different app install campaigns you are running and also analyze the relative performance of installs from different publishers to optimize your marketing spends.


Analyze the performance of different campaigns

After the integration is complete, you can also see your acquisition data analysis on the acquisition dashboard by navigating from the dashboard sidebar: Analyze -> Acquisitions47521bb-Screen_Shot_2019-11-26_at_1.05.54_PM.png

If you are using MoEngage Analytics, you can also leverage the Publisher Name and Campaign Name information of Installs to analyze your user funnels.

Enhanced Onboarding Campaigns

You can use the Publisher Name and Campaign Name of install, which are present as user properties in MoEngage, to create Segments and accordingly personalize the push notifications, In-App messages, emails, and SMS that you are sending them via MoEngage.

Install attribution data gives you an insight into how the users could progress further in their lifecycle right when they install the app. This is a very useful piece of information and can help you to enhance the performance of your onboarding campaigns by improving retention, reducing the time to first conversion, and also helping drive a higher LTV per user.

Publisher Category Use-case
Publishers where average sessions per user are low Send push notifications periodically to increase the average no. of sessions per user, right from the time the users install the app.
Publishers where average LTV is high These are your potential premium users and you could implement a campaigns strategy to nurture them into your segment for premium users.
Publishers where the uninstall rate is high You could identify these users who have a higher propensity to churn immediately after they install the app and incentivize such users to make a first purchase which can, in turn, reduce your churn rate.
