Uber Eats' messaging strategy solves the major challenges mobile apps face with rising app install campaign costs and low activation rates
It’s hard to maintain efficient customer acquisition campaigns for mobile apps.
Install costs are rising for social campaigns, and getting people to actually order after they download the app is difficult. Apple’s App Tracking Transparency framework also makes collecting customer signals for targeting more difficult.
So how did messaging help mobile app marketers at Uber Eats connect with their audiences and drive more efficient app acquisition?
