3 Success Stories on User Acquisition

As many of us have seen in the last few years, but especially in the last few months as the Pandemic has swept across the world, mobile app usage is increasingly becoming intertwined with people’s daily lives, and not just in the entertainment context but for essential services as well. And with the boon of mobile app users, a staggering number of new apps are flooding the market every day, aided by new technologies allowing almost anyone to develop a new app, even without the ability to code (one such example is Appy Pie). We have seen website development become so user-friendly through online software such as Squarespace that even non-developers can make beautiful and effective sites, and app development is not very far behind.

All this means that in this hyper competitive market, apps truly need to break through the crowd, and the way they are marketed to users worldwide is critical in order to ensure success. One critical aspect of these efforts is properly planning partnership and affiliate marketing strategies.

Here are three examples of how Mapendo’s proprietary A.I. platform made it easy for these apps to achieve success. Let’s dive in!
