How can I get more iOS downloads with Apple Search Ads?

Apple Search Ads allows app owners to advertise their iOS app directly to individuals actively searching for an app. And, that's not just to a few users; according to Apple, about 65% of iOS app downloads occur directly after a search within the App Store.

The Redbox Platform uses the Apple Search Ads Campaign Management API to create campaigns, populate these with keywords and optimise the keyword bids. Using scoring algorithms, bids are programmatically adjusted with the aim of generating the maximum number of downloads for your Monthly Budget, capped by Cost Per Download goals.

How it works

When you create your marketing campaign with the Redbox Platform, we take your campaign goals and targeting and turn these into a ready-built campaign. Our Keyword Generator phase finds the keywords that will power your campaign before we sample and optimise the performance of these keywords in the Bidding Algorithm phase. Acquisitions are then found and scaled through the cyclic Keyword Generator and Bidding Algorithm phases.



  • Goals
  • Budget
  • Targeting
  • Starter Keywords

At Redbox, we don't take a one-size-fits-all approach. We create a tailored algorithm solution for each campaign. The campaign is built using your goals, targeting and up to 15 starter keywords. Starter keywords are words that are relevant to your app and are used, amongst other sources, to find additional keywords for the campaign. So, there's no need to do the time-consuming keyword research!



  • Search Engines
  • Apps Store Searches
  • Redbox Keyword Libraries
  • Keyword Entity Extraction
  • Competitor Metadata
  • Natural Language Processing

Quality keywords are needed for a campaign to perform and scale. At Redbox, this is a continual process of generation and refinement. Using our extensive keyword resources, we increase your starter keyword list from just a few keywords to thousands. This is performed as a two-step process:

  1. generate candidate keywords;
  2. predict keyword viability through Keyword Prioritisation, only adding the ones that hit our thresholds.



  • Keyword
  • Bid Discovery
  • Campaign

The Redbox Bidding Algorithm then takes on the task of identifying the optimal price point to set the bids at to maximise the acquisitions. To perform this activity, each candidate keyword goes through Bid Discovery to understand how a keyword performs at different price points. While this learning activity can take time, it means that we can leverage state of the art machine learning techniques to generate industry-leading performance in the Campaign Optimisation phase.

About Us

The team behind the Redbox Platform is Redbox Mobile, founded by Rory Mudie in February 2013, which has become the leading App Store Optimization (ASO) Company.

Redbox Mobile, with offices in London and Hungerford, has acquired and successfully serviced accounts for over 50 major brands in its three year history.

This new and developing industry has similar challenges to the ones that faced website owners when the Google Search Engine began to dominate the discovery of websites. This led to a new industry that focused purely on Search Engine Optimisation (SEO). For an App, the solution is referred to as App Store Optimization, ASO is the service that Redbox Mobile delivers.
