App-based advertising, which includes app store advertising, app search optimisation, and in-app marketing, has served as a highly effective marketing strategy. However, due to the ever-changing app environment, marketers are having to look beyond the Google Play Store to ensure that their campaigns are as effective as possible.

As the total number of mobile apps cross 5.5 million in 2023 [1], marketers are looking at a highly competitive app advertising environment. Some of the top challenges that are compounding challenges related to campaign efficacy and conversion include: 

  • Challenges related to incremental scaling 
  • Higher uninstallation rates 
  • Spiraling CPIs  

The need for innovative app marketing platforms  

Apart from the onslaught of new apps in an already crowded environment, the current reliance on traditional app marketplaces as the primary marketing channels is contributing to the lack of sustainable app marketing strategies. Since consumers can use only a few apps at a given time, marketers must constantly find new ways to capture consumer attention and break through this restricted list of apps used by the consumers. 

The need of the hour is to drive incremental app installs by leveraging the advertising opportunities offered by leading mobile OEM providers. To enhance the experience for their users, most OEMs are providing their own app stores that come pre-bundled with the device. Such OEM app stores are increasingly finding greater adoption among consumers across global markets. The ease of browsing experience, along with seamless download features, are the top reasons contributing to such adoption. This makes it critical for marketers to keep pace with consumer preferences and look for innovative ways to advertise on OEM app stores.  

There are a host of benefits that marketers can expect when advertising on OEM app stores. These include: 

  • Greater visibility owing to a less cluttered environment  
  • Maximum campaign spend optimisation with a higher profit ratio and lower CPI 
  • Access to new and targeted users 
  • Enhanced promotional tools that increase the likeliness of conversions/app installs  

Leveraging the right partner for OEM app store advertising 

Managing campaigns across multiple OEM app advertising tools can be cumbersome in this fragmented publisher universe. Hence, advertisers require an AdTech partner that can help run consistent or unique campaigns across OEM app stores. This is critical to ensuring campaign success and streamlined operations.
