StoreMaven’s App Store Testing platform enables app publishers to compare the performance of different App Store Landing Pages and identify the page that performs best. The optimal App Store page has the highest conversion rate (CVR) and App Store Engagement (ASE) rate.
This document explains how app developers / media vendors should set up media campaigns driving traffic to a StoreMaven test from non-Facebook channels.

How it works
App developers create mobile-web landing pages (micro sites) that look and feel exactly like the App Store and Google Play store.
- StoreMaven Landing Page for iOS
- StoreMaven Landing Page for Google Play
- A StoreMaven test usually includes multiple landing pages, each one with it’s unique creative assets
- Once a test is configured on the StoreMaven dashboard, the app developer or media vendor send paid traffic to the test URL ((i.e. https://api.storemaven.com/123456) to understand which page has the highest performance and install rate
- The test URL is provided by StoreMaven, who also take care of splitting traffic between the relevant test pages

Storemaven Test / UA Campaign Guidelines
Once you get the StoreMaven test URL from StoreMaven or the app developer, you can use it in ANY mobile marketing campaign which supports sending end-users to micro sites (mobile web landing pages).
Campaign setup guidelines
- Only target the relevant test device (i.e iPhone, Android, iPad, etc…)
- Pace the traffic volume to run for at least 7 days
- Make sure to use networks / sources which support mobile web (see comment below)
Sources which do not support mobile web as final destination
Certain networks have a unique configuration which only pings the attribution link (test URL in our case) and sends the end-users directly to the app store (final destination). Such configurations will not work with StoreMaven tests as the user must land on the test URL.
This is how PING ONLY (BAD) campaign flows work:
- End-user clicks on the ad
- The network performs a Server Side Ping to StoreMaven’s test URL
- The network sends the end-user directly to the final destination (The App Store or Google Play), skipping the StoreMaven test page completely
This is how traditional (GOOD) campaigns flow work:
- End-user clicks on the ad
- The network redirects the user to the StoreMaven test URL
- The end-user lands on the landing page on his default mobile browser
