From insights to impact: Kochava’s case studies
TapBlaze – Measurement & Attribution
TapBlaze, an innovative gaming company with over 150 million app downloads, needed to acquire quality players with a solid lifetime value while optimizing their return on advertising spend. They integrated Kochava as their mobile measurement partner to provide attribution of app installs and in-app purchases across campaigns on Facebook, Google, Unity Ads, and other advertising partners. With the Kochava SDK, TapBlaze tracked every in-app purchase with built-in purchase receipt validation for the App Store and Google Play store and sent postback events to their advertising partners for campaign optimization. This enabled the team to accurately calculate and optimize user LTV, redirect ad spend toward the highest-performing campaigns and achieve a higher overall ROAS.
