Measurement strategy

Without a measurement strategy, our purpose and its connection to our business goals would be unclear, moreover, the mobile app tracking would be inconclusive.

Measurement planning

Phase 1

USER STORIES (for each feature):
expectations from the client and defining goals.

First point at which the Analytics Team shows the possible challenges or problems to solve.

Phase 2

first visualization of user experience, developing the basic structure of the screens.

Analytics Team may explore conversion funnels, navigation, function buttons or CTAs.

Phase 3

the Analytics Team clearly defines what, where and under what conditions we should measure in order to track the business goals and KPIs.

For each screen, we define the event names, their parameters and possible values, as well as the interactions which should trigger the given event.

Implementation, maintenance

How can we make sure everything works as planned and the measurement plan remains sustainable?

  • We should build up a reporting system to follow the app KPIs (e.g. custom dashboards)
  • Business needs and the technical environment may change over time, and the measurement plan needs to adapt to these changes
  • A measurement plan is a key element in tracking the success of your business strategy. Keep your data up to date.

Define business goals

Goal: performance and stability

  • Develop a testing strategy
  • Ideally, start testing from the development phase
  • Make sure to do a final testing before release
  • Monitor network traffic

What are the benefits?


We can make responsible business decisions based on accurate and segmented data.


With good mobile app tracking, we will know our app audienceand their behavior.


We can even compare the performance of different devices (e.g. app + web properties)


We can export accurate conversion data and segmented remarketing audiences.


It’s a completely event based measurement, use it for personalization, optimization, and troubleshooting.
