Challenge

Prior to partnering with Kenshoo to execute its social advertising campaigns, Jam City leveraged a platform that had experienced issues around engineering, speed, and optimization efficiency. These issues began to be detrimental to the success of its program, Jam City decided to search for a trusted partner to elevate its social advertising program. The team needed a platform that could help it overcome the following challenges in an efficient and effective manner:

  • Create large-scale campaigns at high volume 
  • Drive mobile app installs at a profitable cost-per-install (CPI) 
  • Adjust bids based on device, location, and audience 
  • Incorporate internal predictive customer lifetime value (LTV) data into campaign optimizations

Solution

Jam City saw Kenshoo as a strategic partner and migrated all of its campaigns over to the Kenshoo Apps platform. The team ramped up quickly and utilized many facets of the platform to drive overall success, including:

  • Leverage social workflow tools to increase day-to-day campaign management efficiency
  • Utilize mobile app install ads and video ads to drive engagement and conversions
  • Optimize campaigns to account for predictive lifetime value 
  • Incorporate internal predictive customer lifetime value (LTV) data into campaign optimizations
