The Challenge

Boost growth and expand the Picsart ecosystem of creators

An already hugely popular creative platform, Picsart wanted to reach new audiences and expand into untapped markets. In addition, Picsart faced new acquisition challenges from the introduction of iOS 14. To meet these challenges, they needed to discover new networks and high-quality traffic by partnering with a powerful, cost-effective solution that could help grow their photo and video editing platform even more.

The Solution

Picsart partnered with AppLovin to grow their acquisition mix

They leveraged AppDiscovery’s automated, machine learning-driven CPE campaigns to test new strategies that were optimized for their most valuable down-funnel conversion event: free trials. And within three months, Picsart was able to reach new users, grow installs, improve conversion rates, and drive down the CPE on the AppLovin network - leading to higher overall performance across all mobile ad network sources.

The Results

AppDiscovery drove significant performance gains in growth and conversions
