  28. 28. Insight DEFINE Design Develop Test Learn We buy Display advertising on a blind network basis, but different inventory may bring travellers to our app with varying levels of quality
  29. 29. Metrics and Hypothesis Define DESIGN Develop Test Learn Based on X If we Y Then Z
  30. 30. Metrics and Hypothesis Define DESIGN Develop Test Learn Based on the ability to view in-app events by source of install, if we optimise for inventory that drives revenue-generating conversions, then we will increase the return on investment from installs. As measured by ROI.
  31. 31. Setup Define Design DEVELOP Test Learn We leveraged AppsFlyer tracking to audit in-app conversion events using an anonymised Site ID. We’d see the IDs that drive conversion events and pass this back to our Display networks to optimise.
  32. 32. The experiment Define Design Develop TEST Learn Phase 1: Gather data Run campaign for 14 days to capture data on performance by Site ID Phase 2: Optimise Optimise spend to the best performing Site IDs and run for another 14 days Analysis: Compare the uplift in ROI performance from Phase 1 to Phase 2
  33. 33. Phase 1 Phase 2 We ran this test to optimise for conversion events in six markets. And found ROI increased! But only by 3%. Learn Define Design Develop Test LEARN
  34. 34. Define Design Develop Test LEARN Pivot! So we pivoted on our approach. We re-ran the test a second time with a stricter approach. We’d optimise for only the top few site IDs based on conversion rate. We knew this might reduce our volume, but it would allow us to focus on the absolute best quality inventory. And this time, it led to an ROI increase of up to 66% in some markets!
  35. 35. we now review Site ID as ‘best practice’ on a monthly cadence
  36. 36. But, importantly, we kept testing. So back to those other growth hacks.
  37. 37. VariantAVariantB Growth hack number two Get the most ‘bang for your buck’ Iterating on creative through A/B testing
  38. 38. Growth hack number three Know the impact of Operating System Invest in paid installs where it counts Operating System 1 Operating System 2 CPI ROI (not where it’s cheapest!)
  39. 39. And the cumulative impact of all those growth hacks?

Notas do Editor

  • Thank you very much Ben.
    And hello everyone!
    Ben has kindly invited me here today to tell you about how Skyscanner leverage a data-led approach to App acquisition.
    My aim is to share some real life examples of how my team are using AppsFlyer.
    In the form of three growth hacks that collectively drove a huge ROI increase over the last 6 months.
  • My name is Ilana Munckton. I’m a director of Growth at Skyscanner.
    I grew up in the US in New York State.
    And have been working in the digital marketing industry for over ten years.
    I started my career working in media agencies in Manhattan, London, and Edinburgh.
    I joined Skyscanner in Edinburgh, Scotland three and a half years ago.
    And now head up our global paid growth efforts for over 35 markets worldwide.
  • Let me give you some context about why Skyscanner is so great.
    With a little insight into our product and the growth we’ve experienced.
  • Of course most of you are already loyal Skyscanner fans, right?
    Skyscanner is the travel search engine that compares Flights, Hotels and Car Hire.
    Our awesome App helps travellers to search, plan and book travel from millions of options.
    We pride ourselves on our unbiased and comprehensive coverage, meaning you can always find the option that’s right for you. Whether that’s the cheapest destination, the best dates, or booking with your favourite airline. Or if you’re not ready to book, the ability to set up a price alert and push notifications right on your mobile device.
  • And I’m really here today because we have an incredible growth story
    We have grown a business to over 60m monthly active users
    And we now have a team of over 900 employees in offices worldwide
  • We achieved this by championing mobile
  • And like all businesses, our travellers are moving from desktop to mobile.
    In just three and a half years mobile has climbed to become about half of web traffic.
    And is growing nearly three times as fast year-on-year.
  • Going to talk about how we leverage Growth principles.
  • I like to think my team make travel easier for more people.
    By surfacing our awesome Apps and website as travellers plan their journeys.
    We do this by using digital media advertising to reach people in market for travel with search, display, and social.
  • So on to the science.
    I’m really here to talk about how we leverage data and science to drive growth.
    We are obsessed with translating this into how we *REALLY* operate.
    So we developed a framework that guides how we act in practice.
    So why don’t I show you how we go through these 6 steps with some case studies.
  • We do this within cross-functional teams combining marketing, product, engineering, and data science skillsets. And with regional, local market expertise.
  • So here’s what a cross functional team working on paid acquisition looks like:
    Digital marketing skillsets with individuals who really know search, display, and social
    Working with engineers to automate how we work
    With Data scientists to advance the sophistication of our measurement
    And with some really talented designers who build our awesome creative
  • Let me show you some of our awesome app install ads to demonstrate how my team works.
    1 We designed some beautiful ad templates
    2 We automated a feed so each traveller sees tailored ad copy, that deeplinks them straight into the app
    3 We target these ads to users based on their travel behaviours and interests
    4 And leverage AppsFlyer data to optimise to the critical revenue generating in-app events

  • I promised three growth hacks.
  • A good hypothesis looks like this.
  • And a good hypothesis has a clear measure of success.
  • Also creates a dialogue where we collaborate actively with our partners towards a single metric for success.
  • You can waste a lot of time with a poorly designed test. If you change too many things at once or aren’t optimising for the right metric, or aren’t measuring the right things. Get to know your science!

    We spent a lot of time at the start reporting manually. Bringing together disparate data sources in excel. Being able to see ROI metrics in real-time in automated dashboards has been a fundamental shift.

    Results are driven by hard work. That first test? Remember – 3% ROI uplift. We only got to a 122% increase ROI after multiple iterations and as the combination of multiple experiments.
  • Finally, this is just what worked for Skyscanner.
    This isn’t a silver bullet.
    But here are three things you may want to check out
    1 More about how Skyscanner work with AppsFlyer to drive paid app growth.
    2 tricks of the trade from our head of experimentation
    3 And if you want to learn more about what my team do in other areas, there’s a link there to a blog about our experimentation efforts for paid search.
  • Thank you for listening.
