Scale your ad performance with Weekly Budget Optimizer

Did you know that installs on iOS jump 25% on weekends over weekdays? And 6% on Android1?

This is because people have more free time on the weekends, and thus, are more active in playing games, shopping, and browsing content on their smartphones. It’s a no-brainer to shift more ad spend to weekends. But most marketers miss this window of opportunity because they still rely on daily budget optimization — or allocating the same budget each day — which actually caps their performance potential.

At Moloco, we’re focused on helping marketers scale their performance — without caps from legacy spend. That’s why we’re excited to announce Weekly Budget Optimizer, a new feature that automatically optimizes your spend based on a weekly budget. This feature differs from daily optimization in that it optimizes for both time and day of week. For example, if we see that your ads perform best on Thursday afternoons, our engine will channel more of your spend toward that period.

Weekly Budget Optimizer enables you to:

  • Automatically optimize spend on time of day and day of week
  • Boost your campaign performance by 10%
  • Spend more on the best performing days while staying at or below your weekly budget
