Analytics and Automatic Optimization

OLX Brazil connected their AppsFlyer mobile attribution and marketing analytics to Smartly.io, their Facebook Marketing Partner.

AppsFlyer’s deep integration with Facebook provided OLX with real-time mobile attribution insights. AppsFlyer’s marketing analytics provided rich insights into their user behavior and lifetime value. Through matching their attributed installs with their user engagement and revenues, AppsFlyer automatically reported the ROI of each Facebook and Instagram campaign.

Using the preconfigured integration, OLX automatically synched their Facebook and Instagram campaign performance, as well as their in-app engagement data with Smartly.io. Smartly.io then used this data to help OLX automatically optimize their Facebook and Instagram advertising - pivoting budgets towards the best performing campaigns and highest lifetime value audiences to maximize ROI. Smartly.io further leveraged the in-app event data from AppsFlyer to enable highly targeted retargeting campaigns along different points of OLX’s customer journey.
