E-commerce App | Case Study

Saved $600K+ ad budget from mobile ad fraud in 9 months.

Challenge

Our customer, E-commerce Gift App, wanted to maximize returns on their advertising spend (ROAS) by optimizing their inventory sources, eliminating fraud and increasing the quality and quantity of target users.

Goals

  • Allocate their marketing budget to the best-performing, most efficient sources and make data-based decisions without compromising the user volume
  • Prove to the ad networks that the influx of low-performing users are actually the result of fraudulent activities among their inventory sources 
  • Limit costs resulting from any revenue events

Solution

  • Initiated real-time blacklisting to eliminate device farms and other low-converting fraudulent sources 
  • Identified the sources stealing attribution from already-converted organic users
  • Developed a transparent “partner dashboard” to provide  ad networks with real-time feedback about their suppliers
  • Established automated deductions to charge back the budget spent on fraudulent activities
