DraftKings Scales App Installs by 280% with Skai


DraftKings isn’t your average Apple Search Ads advertiser.  They’re a fantasy sports giant with a massive ASA program consisting of hundreds of campaigns and ad groups, and thousands of keywords.  DraftKings’ lean growth marketing team sought out an Apple Search Ads Partner to help them streamline workflows, analyze data with ease, and accelerate campaign performance at scale.


DraftKings onboarded their Apple Search Ads to Skai, unlocking advanced automation, reporting, and optimization capabilities.

Skai’s Ad Creator enabled DraftKings to build many new campaigns at once and duplicate ad groups with ease.  In addition, Smart Tags helped the team label and categorize entities at scale, helping them to effortlessly monitor performance across many critical dimensions.  Cutting down the time required to launch and manage campaigns allowed the team to focus on more strategically important tasks.  This included deploying timely bid and budget optimizations to adapt quickly to demand spikes.


Skai helped the DraftKings’ team execute with agility, drive efficiencies, and accelerate performance. Across their portfolio of apps, Installs grew by 280%, all while reducing CPAs by 6%.
