the goal

QuickBooks sought to improve the overall success of their app’s store listing in the app stores. They turned to yellowHEAD to boost their search visibility and conversion using keyword targeting strategies, A/B testing plans, and enticing marketing messaging.

the solution

As longtime partners, QuickBooks & yellowHEAD have achieved great results by applying the ASO team’s strategy and deep understanding of industry best practices.

yellowHEAD’s App Store Optimization strategy has always included a thorough A/B testing plan to maximize conversion and stay relevant.

Conversion optimization is usually focused on creative assets such as icons, screenshots, videos, and feature graphics. However, there is one often-overlooked aspect of the testing process that has huge potential to sway your visitors: the Short Description.

By brainstorming several new ideas for two short description tests, yellowHEAD was able to carry out QuickBooks’ aim to improve conversion. The boost in conversion had phenomenal effects, with higher-proportional increases in installs and First Time Depositors (FTDs).
