There are many elements that make up an app store listing, and just about every one of them can be tested and optimized for better results. While A/B testing tool Store Maven (founded 2015) is a relative newcomer to the ASO industry, it has quickly established itself as a highly important CRO service for app store optimization efforts.

Recently, Store Maven collaborated on a study demonstrating its utility with the goal of raising install conversion rates in order to combat ballooning CPI for SF-based game studio Kabam's new app: Marvel Contest of Champions.

The variable tested in the Store Maven-Kabam study, dubbed "The Poster Frame Effect", was the influence on conversion rate that the selection of the thumbnail image of a video has, given this thumbnail image also serves as the first screenshot for an app.
