Prior to 2018, Stingray Music had been primarily a B2C business, selling music TV channels to operators across the US and Canada. In 2018, inspired by the growing mobile app market, they decided to build direct-to-consumer versions of their products in the form of mobile apps.
To develop a profitable plan for user acquisition, Stingray leveraged its powerful data infrastructure to develop profiles based on its most active app users. Advertising mainly on Facebook, Google, & Apple Search Ads, we served ads based on users’ musical interest, driving the user to a 7-day trial. A customer journey of welcome emails, push notifications, and in-app messages pushed content suggestions.
By optimizing our advertising and in-app user experience, we reached a conversion rate of over 9% resulting in a cost-per-acquisition (CPA) of $43 and a net profit of $17 per acquired user for Stingray Qello. For Stingray Music, a free app with ad revenue, we achieved a CPA of $0.65 with average revenue of $1.12 per user in its first quarter, with revenue increasing over steadily time as more advertisers flock to the platform.
