Landing page example

The manager from PropellerAds helped me with ad creatives that converted well. Thanks to her 😉

Well, I tested 2 versions: with «missed message» and the one for brand awareness.

There were 18 push ads in total. Here’re some of the best examples:

Push 2 push 1

The messages were plain and simple, for example: «you’ve missed (1) message. Don’t miss your chance to win a new Samsung» or: «That’s a special message for you. A new Samsung phone can be yours».

First, I launched CPM campaigns and targeted at “All” user activity groups. Then I was A/B testing to see what ad copy had the best CTR. After that I calculated the efficiency (CPM or CPC), and duplicated some campaigns to run with CPC bidding. The results of CPC campaigns were also good.

The bottom line

All creatives I used appeared to be efficient, and the only reason I had to stop these campaigns was that the CPA network deactivated the offer.

I could have optimized the zoneid, but in my case it was unnecessary, because all the top zones had similar results. I could’ve segmented campaigns by user activity groups (high, medium, low), but I decided not to proceed with that – I wanted to save some time. Even though I didn’t work hard to optimize my campaigns, the results were pretty impressive for the time spent.

What I want to recommend is to check if your advertiser accepts Push traffic. And it’s also good to know about all possible limitations for texts/landings beforehand.
