SINGAPORE, Sept 10, 2018 - (ACN Newswire) - AppsFlyer, the world's leading mobile attribution and marketing analytics platform, has announced a collaboration with leading Chinese social media platform Weibo. The partnership aims to improve the accuracy of digital advertising monitoring, and provide Chinese digital advertisers and media companies with a more comprehensive and effective digital advertising measurement standard.
Weibo, an integrated social media platform that connects mobile internet users, has a substantial database of 392 million active monthly users; 93% of whom are mobile users. With the aid of Weibo's extensive data, this partnership will give advertisers a more in-depth understanding of user behaviors and preferences based on Weibo interest tags, allowing businesses to define their internet demographics with greater precision.
With its social marketing value becoming more apparent and its corporate client base growing to over a million, Weibo has collaborated with AppsFlyer to create a social marketing value measurement system to help advertisers and media companies assess the returns of their social marketing campaigns more accurately; gaining clearer insights into the values that social marketing brings to a brand. The system will also further optimize Weibo's advertising business. AppsFlyer is a world leader in mobile attribution and marketing analytics, with extensive industry experience and best-in-class technology, service and support. The partnership between the two giants of the tech world will enhance the marketing value of the Weibo platform and help promote positive developments in the social marketing space.
AppsFlyer already helps marketers obtain real-time data on marketing activities carried out on Weibo's advertising platform. By assessing the number of clicks, average revenue per user (ARPU), lifetime value (LTV), new app installs, and other metrics, AppsFlyer establishes a complete lifecycle analysis for mobile app marketers. This helps them better understand existing and potential customers, expand their marketing capabilities, and achieve maximum return on investment (ROI). Additionally, AppsFlyer's independent and transparent solutions allow mobile marketers to get more actionable insights from their data, as well as better evaluate their marketing activities on Weibo's channels. This results in an improved customer experience and a more effective execution of marketing decisions.
This new partnership will also help global developers and app marketers gain access to the massive Chinese market, which might have been more of a challenge in the past. Accurate data on app activations, and better marketing analytics will enable them to better measure and optimize their LTV and ROI across Weibo's platforms.

Weibo is a leading social media platform for people to create, share, and discover Chinese-language content. It provides an unprecedented and simple way for individuals and organizations to express themselves publicly in real-time, interact with others, and stay connected with the rest of the world. Any user can post a feed, and also attach multi-media or long-form content. User relationships on Weibo may be asymmetric; any user can follow any other user, add comments to a feed, as well as repost. This simple, asymmetric, and distributed nature of Weibo allows an original feed to become a live word-of-mouth communication stream.
Weibo enables its advertising and marketing customers to promote their brands, products, and services to users. Weibo offers a wide range of advertising and marketing solutions to its customers, ranging from large companies to small and medium-sized enterprises to individuals. The company generates a substantial majority of revenues from the sales of advertising and marketing services including the sales of social display ads and promoted feeds. Weibo has developed, and is continuously refining, its social interest graphic recommendations engine, which enables its customers to perform people-to-people marketing, and target audiences based on user demographics, social relationships, interests, and behaviors; to achieve greater relevance, engagement and marketing effectiveness.
