Shoppers use multiple devices to research and plan their purchases. Many people start on their phones and use your mobile app to read reviews or to check availability and prices. Then they might go to a laptop or desktop computer to make their purchase.
A recent study found that 53% of people who own 2 devices switch between them to complete tasks or activities. 77% of people who have 3 or more devices do the same. Unfortunately, few online store leaders are aware of this end-to-end customer journey. Even fewer actively optimize for it.
With Facebook Analytics for Apps, you'll get a complete picture of the customer journey. Our cross-platform analytics help you understand how your customers move between the web, the mobile web, and your native apps and mobile devices. Using this rich data and our powerful segments and demographics, you can truly understand your customers. This lets you answer questions like how many people search for products and view products on my app, but later purchase on the web? Analytics for Apps can even help you do this with customers who aren't logged into your website or app.
Additionally, we integrate with Apple tvOS, so you can view analytics about your tVOS integration and apps in addition to your website and native mobile apps.
