Mobile app attribution refers to the process of identifying and tracking the source of app installs and user actions within an app. It helps app developers and marketers understand which marketing campaigns and channels are driving the most app installs and user engagement.
Mobile app attribution works by assigning a unique identifier, or attribution link, to each marketing campaign or channel. When a user clicks on the link and installs the app, the attribution provider tracks the install and attributes it to the corresponding campaign or channel.
Mobile app attribution is important for app developers and marketers because it allows them to measure the effectiveness of their marketing efforts and optimize their campaigns for better results. By understanding which campaigns and channels are driving the most installs and user engagement, they can allocate their marketing budget more effectively and improve their overall app performance.
There are several mobile app attribution providers available, including Adjust, AppsFlyer, Branch, and Kochava. These providers offer a range of features and capabilities, such as real-time tracking, deep linking, and fraud prevention, to help app developers and marketers optimize their app marketing efforts.« Back to Glossary Index
