In today's digital age, businesses need more than just surface-level metrics to gauge the success of their campaigns. For too long, marketers have relied on basic data, such as the number of impressions, clicks, and installs a paid campaign generates. Even when running campaigns, particularly through Apple Search Ads, it only gauges the success of the campaign by relying on the number of installs as their primary metric. With Newton Apple Search Ads campaign performance tracking, we have been able to resolve this problem. Read along to know more!

While installs might indicate initial interest, they don't provide insights into the user's subsequent actions within the app. Does the user engage with the app? Do they make a purchase or apply for a loan? Unfortunately, without diving deeper into the funnel, brands are unable to truly understand the impact of the iOS user acquisition campaigns on their bottom-funnel metric.

The way forward: Integrating your MMP with Apple Search Ads

With access to data points from your MMP partner, it allows you to understand the post-install journey of the user. Unifying the MMP data points with your Apple Search Ads campaign data points, enables you to view the full funnel journey of a user who has downloaded your app through the Apple Search Ads campaign. 

Using the platform, you can integrate your MMP and select specific in-app events that are crucial for your app. 


By configuring specific in-app events as either Goal or Revenue, you can now track the conversions for a specific goal or realize the in-app revenue being generated.


In-app events


Account opened, First-time purchase, Repeat purchase


Registrations completed, Applications submitted, Lead generated, Loan disbursed, Loan closure
