ASTRAPAY'S success with OEM inventory in SEA

AstraPay is one of SEA’s leading digital wallet apps, providing a range of services to simplify its users’ digital transactions and daily financial needs. From the AstraPay app, users can carry out everything from their electicity bill to health insurance payments. .

The Objective

AVOW leveraged its exclusive partnerships and ad formats with key OEMs throughout SEA to boost AstraPay’s user acquisition efforts. AVOW ensured engagement KPIs were consistently met through a combination of untapped inventory, exclusive ad formats and performance buying models – all while preventing fraudulent traffic.

The Challenge

As the fintech space grows and becomes increasingly competitive, staying ahead and finding new users can be a daunting task. AstraPay turned to AVOW to help them scale in new, alternative channels. AVOW focused on targeting new users through its partnerships with Xiaomi, Vivo and Oppo, adding incremental user acquisition to AstraPay’s existing marketing mix.

The Strategy

AVOW introduced new inventory to AstraPay’s user acquisition mix by leveraging unique ad formats and inventory acquired through its OEM partnerships with Vivo, Oppo and Xiaomi. Advertisers in the fintech space have largely overlooked these device manufactures, although they represent over 66% market share in Southeast Asia – offering a huge pool of untapped users. AVOW became AstraPay’s one-stop-shop solution for OEM inventory, allowing pure performance bids on CPI, consistently hitting engagement goals for user registration and registering zero instances of ad fraud.

The Result

AstraPay and AVOW reached new audiences via on-device OEMs, including Xiaomi, Vivo and Oppo. AVOW also ensured AstraPay achieved incremental user acquisition gains with high engagement rates specifically in Indonesia – one of the most competitive markets in SEA.

Joom's Success with OEM Inventory

The European pioneer in social e-commerce. Joom is a global marketplace selling products from Europe and Asia directly to buyers in more than 150 countries. It specializes in quality goods at low prices. They aim to simplify the shopping experience by offering a range of exclusive deals to their clients from home decor to accessories and even special gifts.

The Objective

As a popular e-commerce app, Joom has massive activity on both paid and non-paid media/advertising. While looking for incremental activity at scale, Joom´s  market efforts are highly driven by performance, meaning that every single ad spend must revert into engagement and purchases within the app.

The Challenge

Acquire users from OEM untapped inventory, meaning incremental user acquisition efforts, aside from the traditional mix of channels promoting Joom App, or any overlap within Joom UA strategy and partners. Optimize UA activities while developing together a full-strategy around new KPI’s, and understanding new/exclusive business model to operate.

The Strategy

AVOW leveraged its partnership with Xiaomi, which presented 70%+ market growth last year in Europe, to increase Joom’s penetration across the continent. This resulted in new banner ads inventory in specific EU and CIS markets which Joom wanted to penetrate. AVOW improved user engagement and performance by selecting the right target groups for media buying, surpassing the clients KPI goals by using real-time optimization through AVOW performance optimizer (APO).

The Result

Working together, Joom and AVOW were able to reach untapped ad placements in many countries including Russia, Spain Germany and France.

The Challenge

Fintech applications are experiencing a boom of engagement this year and, while customers are more likely to trade via mobile, brands advertise through various media channels in order to find higher market penetration globally.

The Strategy

AVOW added new inventory to Olymp Trade´s UA mix by leveraging unique ad formats and inventory acquired through its OEM partnerships. OEMs such as Xiaomi presented the highest market penetration in emerging regions such as CIS, India, SEA and LATAM this year, representing the trendiest opportunity to be explored, while assuring scale and transparency. Moreover, AVOW’s unique APO system allowed real time optimization of the inventory across all channels, ensuring Olymp Trade’s desired ROAS is met.
