Web-to-App analysis

W2A analysis measures the impact of web marketing efforts to drive users to install an app. Advertisers view web involvement in the context of the install event; they can determine the media source that drove website visitors towards app install. 

Web-related installs 

  • Switch between dashboards views—Total, Organic, and Non-organic installs—according to your use case and analysis needs.
  • Consider the use-case scenarios in the table (below) as an initial guide to W2A use.

Install type

Journey to install

Considerations

Total installs

All installs engaging—at some point—with a web media source.

  • What is the contribution of web marketing relative to all app installs?
  • How are web marketing efforts distributed between media sources and channels?
  • What is the contribution, if any, of Smart Banners?

Organic

App is installed without engaging with a mobile media source. 

  • What portion, if any, of organic installs are driven purely by web traffic?
  • Which are the dominant media channels? 
  • What is the proportion between paid, owned, and earned media types?

Non-organic 

User journeys begin on the web. The app is installed later after engaging with a mobile campaign.

  • What volume of non-organic installs is influenced by the web?
  • What web media channels and types influence non-organic installs? 
  • Do your paid mobile media sources overlap with web media sources?
