iOS Performance Marketing is Back: Singular’s SKAN Advanced Analytics Provides Accurate D7 Revenue

Since Apple launched iOS 14.5 with SKAdNetwork for ad results measurement, mobile user acquisition spend is down 25% and marketers’ return on advertising investment is down 38%. SKAN increases privacy, but it has multiple challenges, including:

Missing data due to privacy thresholds
Randomized timing of attribution
Limited conversion value reporting
Lack of cohort metrics
As a result, it’s hard if not impossible for app publishers to accurately calculate LTV and ROAS. It’s difficult to estimate the value of their new users, making it challenging to optimize ad campaigns and confidently invest in marketing.

Singular is solving those problems with SKAN Advanced Analytics. Using only privacy-safe data that Apple provides via SKAdNetwork and aggregated, non-personal, campaign data from ad partners, Singular is applying data science and machine learning to fill the gaps.

Today we announce the latest update to SKAN Advanced Analytics, SKAN Cohorts, which returns visibility of critical KPIs that marketers currently lack due to SKAdNetwork limitations. The results in real-world tests are nothing short of astounding, reaching 87% D7 revenue accuracy on average for beta clients.

“Our strategy has been to embrace the change in paradigm, turn this disruption into an opportunity to grow our business, and build a future-proof UA infrastructure,” says Kieran O’Leary, VP of Marketing, Rovio. “Singular has undoubtedly been instrumental in helping us pioneer the new ways of running acquisition.”

“Collecting and analyzing data from SKAdNetwork can quickly become a time-consuming pain. Singular’s SKAdNetwork suite has helped us improve significantly,” says Marcus Dale, CTO of Qiiwi Games. “We’ve been able to optimize data collection and BI models to match our needs and to accurately predict future revenues.”

SKAN Advanced Analytics helps take the marketing landscape back to the pre iOS 14.5 days with improved reporting accuracy and visibility into cohorted metrics that have been unavailable for over a year. Marketers can now confidently rescale their iOS ad spend knowing accurate measurement is guiding their investment decisions.
