Facebook's not-for-drinking IPA and the United Nations of marketing measurement
We have SKAdNetwork from Apple. We have Privacy Sandbox from Google. We have ID5 and Unified ID 2.0 and the IAB's Project Rearc. In short, we have many diverse solutions now competing for the future of marketing measurement. Plus, of course, IPA, or Interoperable Private Attribution from Facebook ... errr ... Meta. What is it? How does it work? Should you be thinking about it? And ... with all these different methodologies, how can marketers actually measure results across the board? Don't we need a United Nations of measurement to make this all make sense? We chat about all these questions with Singular CTO Eran Friedman.

Privacy Sandbox on Android: how ad networks and MMPs can work together
Privacy Sandbox on Android is out and it looks good. But there's still a lot of questions about how advertisers, ad networks, and MMPs will work together.  If the industry can't find a way to innovate in tandem, we risk having confusing data and unclear insights from marketing campaigns that won't enable proper measurement or optimization. In this episode of the Growth Masterminds podcast, we chat with Singular product manager Jonathan Chen, who's working on ways of solving Privacy Sandbox on Android for the industry, including how we can ensure that we don't get siloed attribution (where multiple ad networks claim credit for a conversion and advertisers don't know whether they should credit one, or both, or neither) and coordinating aggregation keys so that advertisers, ad networks, and measurement partners can make sense of the aggregated privacy-safe data Google will be releasing. We chat solutions, integrations, results ... and what still needs to be figured out.

ironSource on Privacy Sandbox for Android: something new that marketers have never had before
A level playing field for ad channels? Retargeting built into the OS? Multi-touch attribution (very) light?  In this episode of Growth Masterminds, we chat with ironSource VP Yevgeny Peres about Privacy Sandbox for Android. There's plenty we don't know yet, but Peres has already seen multiple things in the new mobile marketing measurement framework from Google to get excited. There's new never-seen-before functionality for marketers. There's a level playing field for ad networks, Peres says, and much more ...

50% more SKAN values? How mixed conversion models make SKAdNetwork work
SKAN or SKAdNetwork has a major problem. Less data, less timely data, less granular data ... OK, it has many problems. One particular issue: zeroed-out conversion values because there's simply no revenue data to report. Singular's mixed models for SKAN fixes that, by allowing mobile marketers measure revenue and a combination of other conversion models to ensure that no matter what happens, you get data back. In this episode of Growth Masterminds, we do a deep dive into what the problem is, and how mixed models fixes. In other words, how to make SKAdNetwork ... work.

Why Zynga bought Chartboost before getting bought by Take-Two
Why does a game publisher buy an ad network? What does it bring them? And what is behind this current frenzy of mergers and acquisitions that we're seeing in mobile adtech? Good questions! So I asked Zynga and Chartboost. Our conversation happened to be a couple of weeks before the news broke that Take-Two Interactive was buying (errr, acqui-merging) Zynga, and the answers are even more relevant now that that's happened. In this Growth Masterminds we chat with  Zynga Chief Product Officer Scott Koenigsberg and Chartboost CEO Rich Izzo. Your host, of course, is John Koetsier.

Making SKAdNetwork predictive (yes it's possible!)
Mobile marketers can live with many of the deficiencies of SKAdNetwork: lack of granularity, lack of immediacy, lack of data richness. But they can't live without predictability. Predictability enables confidence in campaigns and massive capital deployment. BUT ... Mobile growth experts have had major challenges making SKAN predictable. As many as 90% of mobile marketers can't get what they need out of SKAdNetwork. In this episode of Growth Masterminds, we chat with Singular CTO Eran Friedman, who has worked with many massive clients on SKAN and iOS campaigns, on how to achieve predictability with SKAdNetwork.

Liftoff CEO Mark Ellis on adtech change, consolidation, competition
There's been a ton of change in adtech in 2021. I'm not even sure we know precisely what an ad network is anymore, but we're certainly seeing the rise of a set of new titans of adtech in mobile, companies like Liftoff+Vungle, ironSource, Unity, Applovin, Digital Turbine, and InMobi. What's driving the growth? Is it good for mobile marketers? And, what should we expect from mobile adtech companies in 2022? To dig into all these questions, we chat with the CEO of Liftoff, Mark Ellis. Of course, since the merger with Vungle, he's now the CEO of Liftoff+Vungle, or whatever they're going to call the new company, Mark's not just the CEO, he's also the founder, and has a deep history in adtech and mobile. NOTE: This episode of Growth Masterminds is cross-posted from another podcast: TechFirst by John Koetsier.

Modeling SKAN data for better iOS mobile marketing insights
If you’re doing mobile marketing on iOS, you pretty much have to use Apple’s SKAdNetwork. But SKAN has serious issues, including privacy-focused censorship thresholds: You don’t get all the data, so you can’t determine device-level granular marketing performance. That means you can’t get great ROAS and ROI data ... and that makes optimizing advertising hard. Now, there might be a solution using data science and machine learning to model the missing conversions and re-surface the missing data. To check it out, we’re chatting with Singular product manager Evyatar Ram.

InMobi CEO on data, privacy, payment freedom on iOS, & InMobi Telco
We chat with InMobi CEO Abhay Singhal on Epic vs Apple, IDFA and iOS 14.5, and especially the company's new InMobi Telco on-device platform. "There are over 800 telcos in the world and each one, if you talk to them today, has an ambition of becoming a large media company," Singhal says. We're seeing on-device ad platforms achieve significant success, with companies like ironSource Aura, AppNext, and Digital Turbine scoring very high on the 2021 Singular ROI Index. Most of them include on-device app discovery via a persistent experience on new devices and a set-up wizard upon activation. They can tie into the home and/or lock screens, and offer live updates on new apps to try. We also chat about IDFA and iOS 14.5, the Epic Games vs Apple legal settlement impacting third-party payment options on iOS, and much more ... 0:00 On-device app discovery 3:10 Lock screen and home screen ads 5:09 Telcos as media companies 8:11 Custom version of Android? 9:32 iOS 14 and IDFA 14:40 Apple vs Epic Games

Boosting app monetization AND user retention: AppLike CEO Jonas Thiemann
Monetization and retention can seem like the opposite ends of a continuum ... a zero-sum game where focusing on monetization kills retention. Not necessarily, says AppLike CEO Jonas Thiemann. AdJoe, one of their brands, has a unique ad placement that earns players money for installing and playing games they're interested in ... including the game they saw the ad in. He says it's the perfect balancing of incentives between users, publishers, and advertisers, and that's why 80 out of the top 100 grossing apps on Android are using AdJoe, users are making $20-20 a month, and some publishers are taking home six-figure paydays daily.

After attribution: what's next in marketing measurement
First-party data? Content fortresses? Incrementality? 2020 was crazy for everyone. 2021 is crazier for mobile marketers, who are facing complete disruption in how they keep score, measure success, and report on growth. Attribution's not gone, but it is changing. You still get some last-click data in iOS with SKAdNetwork, and of course on Android, but it's less clear, less direct, and -- for Android -- probably not long-lived. What other data do you have to measure the impact of your marketing? That exactly what we chat about with Tinuiti's Liz Emery ... possibly the smartest agency-based marketer. We chat about iOS 14.5, Android 12, Facebook AMM (advanced mobile measurement) deprecation, opportunities, media mix modeling, incrementality, first-party data, mergers & acquisitions, and much, much more. We end with this: what will remain true in marketing ... regardless of technology, data, and regulation changes? 0:00 Everything is broken 1:49 Attribution + more data 5:04 In-app analytics for marketers 6:28 Historical data for marketers 8:28 Flight to Android? 10:39 Facebook Advanced Mobile Measurement (AMM) 14:02 Android app set ID and more 16:19 First party data 18:12 Mergers & acquisitions & content fortresses 22:06 Owned media, lifecycle marketing, social 23:52 Agencies and mobile marketing 27:37 Liz rocks

Why Vungle bought JetFuel and what it means for the mobile marketing landscape
We’ve had more billion-dollar adtech acquisitions in the first quarter of 2021than in the previous several years combined, according to LUMA. What’s going on? Could it be … all the talk of third-party cookie deprecation? The reality of the IDFA apocalypse? New levels of competition? Changing marketing channels and opportunities? Or … a new emphasis on platform services and first-party data? We’re going to find out. Vungle is part of this acquisition frenzy. Vungle has acquired no fewer than 4 companies in the past 9 months, including, most recently, JefFuel, an influencer marketing platform. Today we’re chatting with Vungle’s SVP of Revenue, Scott Silverman, about why.

Apple's SKAdNetwork is a huge bonus for kids apps, says Kidoz co-CEO Eldad Ben Tora
Many mobile marketers are less than happy with Apple's new iOS 14.5 and SKAdNetwork, Apple's privacy-safe mobile advertising attribution framework.  But developers and publishers of kids' apps are not among them. In fact, SKAdNetwork might just be the best thing that's happened to kids' apps. Now, as Kidoz co-CEO Eldad Ben Tora says, marketers can actually do user acquisition at scale for kids' apps. And publishers can monetize safely via ads.

Cloud gaming is a game-changer for marketers: chatting with Bluestack's new Now.gg VP Ben Armstrong
Now.gg is launching a new cloud gaming service. And while there are dozens of startups and giant tech companies doing the same, Now.gg is from Bluestacks, which has over 500 million users play Android games on the web. Now gaming is moving to the cloud. And that means huge changes for marketers and user acquisition specialists. While it's early days, being able to market a game by sharing a link that someone can start playing a game with instantly is an entirely different ball game than marketing an Android or iOS app. In this episode of Growth Masterminds (check out the audio podcast!) I chat with Ben Armstrong, a Bluestacks and Now.gg VP, about the new service, about what it means for mobile, and about how marketers can take advantage of it.

Mobile app success in China: pitfalls, challenges, and secrets, with Josh Burns
The list of Western apps that have made it big in China is not long. There are some great games on that list, including ones from major studios Supercell and Riot Games. Games like Cut the Rope and Fruit Ninja made the cut, and Subway Surfers and PUBG are big globally as well as in China. But as Josh Burns explains, it’s probably easier to list the apps that failed. He has a lot of experience with apps in general and China in particular.  As a former exec at 6waves and EA and founder of DigitalDevConnect, Burns has helped launch games for Kabam, Nexon, and Atari. He’s managed games with IP from Disney, Starz, Eminem, and the BBC. Now, among a few other things, Burns helps top grossing mobile games enter the China market. I chatted with him recently, and along with a lot of advice about what NOT to do, he shared 12 keys to success in bringing mobile apps to China.  Here’s his best insight about taking apps and games from the west and bringing them east. If you'd prefer to read this than watch this, the 12 keys are available on the Singular blog: https://www.singular.net/blog/mobile-app-success-in-china/

Adtech upheaval: why Digital Turbine bought Fyber, and what's happening in the ecosystem
What is happening in the mobile adtech ecosystem? Is it the rise of platforms? The need for size to fight the heavyweight contenders of mobile advertising? Consolidation to accumulate and stockpile more first-party data in an era of increasingly scarce second and third party information? Or just a need to acquire revenue on the path to going public? Whatever it is, we are seeing a massive acceleration in mergers and acquisitions in the mobile marketing and adtech ecosystems. Applovin bought Adjust, Vungle bought GameRefinery, Verve bought Nexstar. District M and Sharethrough. Magnite (formerly Rubicon) bought SpotX just a few months ago … and, of course, the ink has barely dried on the $400 million Digital Turbine acquisition of AdColony. In this episode of Growth Masterminds, we chat with Offer Yehudai, president at Fyber, and Matt Tubergen, EVP corporate development and strategy at Digital Turbine about their deal ... and the wider implications in the ecosystem.

So you need SKAdNetwork-compatible mobile ad inventory ...
SKAdNetwork-compatible mobile ad inventory is hard to come by these days. Fortunately, Snap is ready, and Singular and Snap are announcing a joint solution for SKAdNetwork campaign measurement.  For all the details, we check in with Singular product marketing manager Saadi Muslu in this episode of Growth Masterminds. Perhaps even more interesting? Like Facebook but unlike Google, Snap has decided to show the App Tracking Transparency prompt. And the results, according to our recent IDFA survey data, could be extremely important for the ecosystem as a whole.

Facebook AAA: How to analyze Automated App Ads by country and creative simultaneously
Facebook automated app ads are smart and useful ads that take elements of creative you supply, mix and match them according to Facebook’s secret alchemy of advertising success, and automate the process of targeting, delivery, customization, and even — if you wish — setting budgets. There’s one small problem. You can’t analyze everything you might want to.  In this brief episode of Growth Masterminds, we chat with Singular product manager Evyatar Ram about how you actually can analyze Facebook AAA ads by country and creative assets simultaneously.

iOS 14: is the ad ecosystem ready? (plus SKAdNetwork and MMPs, mobile web and deep links, and VTA)
We are down to the short strokes now: Apple’s iOS 14.5 will roar in next week or soon after, changing mobile marketing on iPhone and iPad forever. But is the mobile advertising ecosystem ready? Is there SKAdNetwork-ready ad supply from mobile publishers? And how will MMPs, mobile web customer journeys, and deep links work? In short: there are still a lot of questions. I spent some time with Jonathan Chen, who leads Singular’s attribution product and manages integration with top partners, to answer these questions.

Fingerprinting in iOS 14: where you can and can't use probabilistic fingerprinting for marketing measurement or tracking
Can you fingerprint users in iOS 14? Or, in other words, use probabilistic attribution? There’s been a ton of questions about this. Some vendors have said yes, and in fact there are some circumstances where fingerprinting is OK. But Apple has said fingerprinting is not OK in cases where people have not granted tracking permission. So what’s OK, and what’s not? We’re chatting with Eran Friedman, CTO of Singular, who’s been working with SKAdNetwork for the past six to nine months

SKAdNetwork challenges for mobile marketers: supply side data, and privacy cohort size
Singular CTO Eran Friedman talks about challenges with SKAdNetwork: getting enough supply side data, and ensuring you hit privacy thresholds to get data not just in number of total instals, but also total installs for each of several key parameters ... In other words ... it’s about much more than getting, or not getting, the IDFA.

ROAS and cohorts in iOS 14? Here's how
ROAS is perhaps the most foundational KPI in mobile marketing. The big question for 2021 is: can you still calculate ROAS in iOS 14? “First and foremost, I think we should recognize that there is still … IDFA, because users might opt-in,” says Singular VP of product Alon Nafta. “But if we go to SKAdNetwork — which let’s assume is the common case — it’s not like you don’t have anything. The SKAdNetwork framework does give you a few elements that if used correctly ... advertisers can expect to get something sensible.” Short version: yes. Slightly longer version: there are some challenges.

Mobile ad monetization: challenges, trends, and future for this multi-billion dollar segment
True ROI calculation requires complete data. You've got data on your In-app purchase, of course. But most mobile publishers also have ad monetization data. The question is: how do you get all of it together … match it up … and figure out true ROI based on your actual cost of user acquisition? To get more details, we’re chatting with Lisi Gardiner, Senior Product Manager for Analytics for Singular. And we'd better be fast: we're keeping her from weekend pizza and wine.

How do you build a single source of truth ... including SKAdNetwork?
Every marketer would love to have a single source of truth. With iOS 14, SKAdNetwork is yet another source of marketing data to add to the long list. In this episode of Growth Masterminds, we chat with Singular's director of product marketing Saadi Muslu, who shares what Singular is doing to integrate this new data source with all the others. One of the things Saadi mentions is the Mobile Attribution Privacy Group, a Slack group dedicated to plotting a privacy-safe path through all the new mobile attribution minefields. She also invites all listeners to join it. Here's the link: https://join.slack.com/t/mapworkinggroup/shared_invite/zt-9vlvhtzn-bqUVQ1zn3o1UorDNIodvZg

You might think that since Apple cryptographically signs every install that is attributed via SKAdNetwork that iOS 14 could be fraud-free, but there are at least 3 ways fraudsters can still cheat app install advertisers.

AdExchanger senior editor Allison Schiff on TikTok, Amazon, Facebook, Google, Twitter, the goddess of growth, and the marketing that works on her
You've heard of walking softly and carrying a big stick? Allison Schiff talks softly and carries a massive stick ... with a great sense of humor.  In this episode of Growth Masterminds, we take a peek behind the martech and adtech curtain with a reporter who's covering all the biggest stories in the space. What we talk about:  - You have a very broad view of the martech and adtech ecosystem, and what’s happening in it. It really feels like an era of major change right now with lots up in the air … the death of cookies, the threat to IDFA, increased legislation and demand for privacy … what are the major changes happening right now in your opinion? - I want to chat about the ROI Index Singular just released. I’ll mention the name of a platform … you tell me what comes to mind ... - TikTok - Facebook & Google - Apple Search Ads - Amazon - Twitter, Snap - AdColony … Vungle … Liftoff … Applovin - Unity  - Sometimes you get to see behind the curtain of some major marketing platforms or ad networks. Tell us something we don’t know …  - We’ve seen plenty of startups worshipping the goddess of growth-at-all-costs in the super-funded startups of the last few years, perhaps thanks to a cash-as-a-strategy effort by Softbank and others pouring money into a leading contender in the space. That seems to be changing now .. how do you think that will impact advertising and marketing?  - What kind of advertising do you personally like? What works on you?  - How do you see the marketing world changing in the next few years? And how do you want it to change? Show notes and a transcript will be available at Singular's blog shortly.
