What Is Conversion Rate?

Conversion Rate | Definition

Conversion Rate shows the percentage of users who complete a desired action after seeing or clicking on an ad, out of the total number of users exposed to a marketing campaign or having an interaction with a digital asset. The action can consist of making a purchase, signing up for a newsletter, downloading an app, or another defined goal that aligns with the marketer’s objectives.

  • Purpose: Conversion rate is used to gauge the effectiveness of marketing efforts and campaigns. It helps marketers understand how well their content resonates with the audience and drives them to take action. A higher conversion rate indicates that the ad effectively persuades users to complete target actions.
  • Calculation: Conversion rate is typically calculated by dividing the number of conversions by the total number of visitors or impressions (or total number of clicks), then multiplying the result by 100 to get a percentage.
  • Importance: Conversion rates are crucial for evaluating return on investment (ROI) of marketing activities and making data-driven decisions to optimize campaigns, improve user experience, and increase the effectiveness of marketing spend.

The conversion rate from taps to installs in Apple Search Ads is a key metric for gauging the success of app advertising on the App Store. This measure tracks the percentage of users who tap an ad, then install the app. A high conversion rate indicates a compelling ad driving downloads effectively, while a low rate suggests the need for optimization in ad creatives, audience targeting, or App Store presentation. Advertisers focus on enhancing this rate to boost app acquisition and engagement.
