Mobile app install ads direct users to install a particular app. Tapping on an app install ad would take the user to App Store or Google Play (or other app stores) from where the app can be installed.

Standing out among the millions of apps in App Store and Google Play has been a constant challenge, and app install ads are now seen as an effective tool to overcome this.

App install ads have resulted in high CTRs, more downloads, and measurable returns and hence, have gained huge popularity among marketers and brands.

Facebook’s deep linking for app install ads

Facebook has recently introduced deep linking for app install ads. You can choose to redirect the user tapping on your app install ad to a particular place in your app instead of the homepage; e.g. a developer of an e-retail app wants to run ads for a particular smartphone. He can deep link users directly to the smartphone page once the user opens the app post-installation. Hence, the user doesn’t need to search for the smartphone after opening the app. The removal of extra steps for the user to reach his product page would drive higher conversions and purchases.

 

App install ads showcase top performance with high CTRs and greater conversions, and are in great demand among app developers, marketers, mobile publishers, and ad networks alike. Expect the share of app install ads in mobile ad dollars to only ascend further.
