The Objective

With a higher demand of users trading globally, OctaFX planned to expand its services and acquire users overseas. The strategy was to tackle both high pace markets for trading (such as India, Indonesia and MY) and develop entry regions like Nigeria and South Africa. This required OctaFX to target active users that were willing to trade.

The Challenge

Finding incrementality within OctaFX’s existing marketing mix was the primary goal. AVOW enabled OctaFX to acquire new users via ads running on the most used device manufactures in APAC. That translates into bringing new and targeted users on a performance basis – entirely free of ad fraud.

The Strategy

AVOW leveraged its partnership with Xiaomi and Vivo global to acquire untapped audience for OctaFX. Acting as a one-stop solution for the client, AVOW was able to run offers on different OEMs while avoiding overlap and price competition within the client´s existing UA operations.

Our reach enables us to access over 70% of Android devices in SEA and 90% in India. There are also unique targeting possibilities such as Appographic, which allowed AVOW to run ads on devices that were already using multiple trading apps. OctaFX could then thrive in a competitive market with its exclusive product offering.

The Result

Working together, OctaFX and AVOW were able to reach untapped ad placements in countries such as Indonesia, India, Malaysia, Nigeria and South Africa.

BYJU's Success Story via OEM inventory

BYJU’S – The Learning App, is India’s largest online learning program! A perfect blend of engaging video lessons and personalized learning. It has amassed over 80 million users, 5.5 million of whom are paying subscribers. BYJU’s is currently the second most valuable startup in India.

The Objective

As the pandemic accelerated the adoption of online learning services in India, BYJU’s emerged as the main education platform in the country and created a program that brought students on a personalized learning journey. The goal of BYJU’s was to expand its services to the highest amount of users and engage those with online courses sign ups.

The Challenge

“It took a pandemic for most stakeholders to try out digital learning. Parents are now accepting the online segment more than before.” said Raveendran to Techcrunch, CEO of BYJU’s.

Education apps have emerged as a new category recently due to the pandemic, meaning that a challenging scenario has been created for marketeers where, finding the right tune between performance campaigns, pricing and measuring ROI effectively is key.

Also, making sure that you are impacting the highest number and the right users in the country, allows sustainable growth where engagement is mandatory. When a market such as India adapts to a new service, potential online students can be found in any device.

The Strategy

AVOW played a key role when consulting BYJU’s on its media plan to acquire the highest number of new users in India, while keeping healthy engagement rates and ROI.

For that we leveraged, as one stop solution, opportunities of running Ads in various OEMs at once. Students were impacted directly when holding mobile phones from Xiaomi, Samsung, Vivo and Oppo brands, while their best AdFormats were optimized daily, with focus on ROI.

On top of this, BYJU’s counted with tailored targeting strategy by AVOW, which used deterministic data capabilities based on demographics, gender, appographic/ app category and high-end device models.

The Result

BYJU’s and AVOW partnered as one of top 3 larger operations to finding potential students for BYJU’s online courses. The majority of students signed up for their top courses, surpassing clients expectations on app engagement and Return over Investment – A truly successful campaign!
