Luna Search Ads provides a critical layer of creation, management and optimization capabilities to app marketing campaigns on Apple Search Ads, allowing marketers to increase ROI and impact of the channel
TEL AVIV, Israel–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ironSource (NYSE: IS), a leading business platform for the App Economy, today announced the general availability of Luna Search Ads, allowing app marketers to better create, manage and optimize campaigns on Apple Search Ads. Previously in closed beta, the product allows app marketers to automate and streamline campaign creation, keyword management and discovery, and data analysis, as well as providing automated optimization for Apple Search Ads – all from within the same platform where they manage campaigns on other channels.
“Luna allows app marketers to execute and control the app marketing cycle from one place for the first time,” explained Peli Beeri, ironSource Luna GM. “Now with the addition of Luna Search Ads, marketers can optimize their campaigns on Apple Search Ads, while utilizing the cross-channel app marketing capabilities of ironSource Luna. We believe that this will assist marketers to significantly reduce costs and overhead by enabling them to manage all of their media spend from one platform, connect post-install return-on-ad-spend (ROAS) metrics from their different marketing channels and drive incremental growth across channels.”
There’s been a significant increase in spend in Apple Search Ads, highlighting the critical need for sophisticated tools that support the effective management of this channel. By centralizing tools for optimizing Apple Search campaigns within the larger Luna offering, ironSource also allows app marketers to compare campaign performance on other app store search channels like Google’s Play Store, providing additional insights to drive scale and discoverability of their app.
“Luna’s Apple Search Ads tool has been a great asset for our global expansion,” said Andrew Bolich, User Acquisition Analyst at Playstudios. “The platform helped streamline our campaign launches, keyword management tasks and performance management activities, and we subsequently succeeded in scaling up to our highest Apple Search Ads spend to date.”
ironSource has invested heavily in supporting app developers within the Apple ecosystem, becoming the first platform to support Custom Product Pages, allowing developers to create multiple, targeted versions of an App Store product page. This unique product will now also be supported in Luna’s Search Ads, creating a powerful combination of keyword targeting and a custom product page user journey. This provides a huge potential for app growth and profitability.
“We believe our cross-channel marketing software provides a key differentiator in the market, allowing us to provide app-based businesses with sophisticated technology to manage their marketing across every major channel, in the same way we’ve been enabling them to maximize revenue with our cross-channel monetization solution,” added Omer Kaplan, CRO and co-founder of ironSource.
