ASO localization strategy increases app downloads 101%
Coin Splash is a free, casual mobile game where players can build their village to become the next greatest coin empire, attack and get revenge on other players, and spin to win. Players can also connect with Facebook and play with friends to earn free coins and free spins on the wheel to spend towards expanding their empire.
Coin Splash was a new game in the casual gaming category and they were looking for help from app marketing partners to bring the app to market. The team hired App Growth Network to develop their launch strategy, implement their first ASO campaign, perform bunde ID analysis, and plan out their paid user acquisition campaign with Apple Search Ads, Google UAC and Facebook.
In this case study, we focus on how our AGN specialists helped Coin Splash reach one of their main go-to-market business objectives:
- To boost organic search traffic in the US market and increase overall global visibility
To achieve their business goal, we took a two-pronged approach:
1. Localized the app’s metadata for their six main Geos
To increase organic search traffic, we focused on developing and executing a robust ASO strategy. This included targeting six core Geos in the Google Play Store which included the US, UK, Canada, France, Italy, and Germany.
To make the targeting effective, AGN’s ASO specialists adapted the app metadata into four languages (English, French, Italian and German) and further localized the metadata according to the country. In some countries, multiple languages were leveraged. For example, English was used in the US and UK and French for France and Canada.
2. Doubled our efforts in paid channels
To further enhance the effects of ASO organic traffic, AGN’s paid UA specialists doubled the spending on paid channels like Apple Search Ads.
Through these combined efforts, Coin Splash received significant results in Google Play Store downloads after 40 days of implementing the ASO strategy:
• 101% increase in global downloads
• 67% overall increase in local countries
Broken down by language/country, results were as follows:
App Store Optimization (ASO) continues to be the most important factor in establishing a mobile app’s organic growth and securing long-term success. Localization efforts, when done strategically, reap great rewards in achieving organic growth goals in specific geos and on a global scale. Through the collaborative app growth marketing partnership between Coin Splash and AGN, the app enjoyed a significant increase in organic growth in a short amount of time (40 days!)
