Unleashing the Power of AIM:A Deep Dive into 11.3% Sales Growth!


A leading brand in a competitive industry with strong user acquisition (UA) processes and a global budget experienced stagnant growth due to market competition. They struggled with rising costs and squeezing margins, sought ways to optimize ad spending for better ROI, and navigated the ever-evolving data privacy landscape. With a complex marketing infrastructure, they needed a solution that would integrate seamlessly. They saw AIM (Always-On Incremental Measurement) as a possible solution.

Test Objective

The test’s primary goal was to evaluate AIM’s efficacy in improving sales. Additionally, the objective was to determine how seamlessly AIM could integrate with and amplify
the client’s established UA workflows.

Test Conditions

  • Duration: 13 weeks observational & 13 weeks AIM active
  • Test Data and Region: Acquisitions from both iOS and Android, in the U.S. market.
  • Acquisition Definition: A new user making their first purchase. Media Sources: 11 digital media channels were utilized,
    encompassing self-attributing networks and traditional networks.
  • Metrics of Success: The yardstick for measuring success
    was “Total New User Sales,” which incorporated both organic and paid media acquisitions.
  • Data Authenticity: The data (Total New User Sales) provided was the ground truth, neither measured by the client’s mobile measurement partner (AppsFlyer) nor AIM, ensuring its raw and unfiltered nature.
  • Verification: This data representation allows the client to validate any increases or decrements in total new user sales.
