Apple Search Ads

What are Search Ads?

Think Adwords for the App Store.

Search Ads are Apple's take on monetizing the app store, and represent a golden opportunity for app marketers. By placing ads above keyword searches, Apple allows marketers to pay to "skip the line" and capture a #1 ranking immediately.

Search Ads also have implications for ASO strategy, as downloads influence app category and keyword rankings, among other benefits.

Search Ads generate real results, we've seen them firsthand. Yet with more advertisers piling into the fray by the day, it will take experience and "been there, done that" knowledge to optimize against CPT inflations. By implementing the right account structure and optimizing for bidding and relevance, a Search Ads campaign can scale while also retaining a high ROAS.
