7 steps to growing your app UA profitably

Tasked with growing the business quickly, performance marketers often turn to scaling their ad spend to scale their userbase. But when you increase spend you often see efficiency disappear as the cost of acquiring new users goes up.

This guide digs into why this common challenge occurs. Then it offers 7 steps that performance marketers can take to overcome it so they can get back to growing their business efficiently and profitably. For example:

  • Focus on measuring what really matters, not just efficiency
  • How to know when to open up new channels
  • Even how to move higher up the funnel to increase sales volume
