About Ad LTV

Just so we are all aligned here, lifetime value (LTV) is the total average revenue generated by a user from the day he or she started using the service. In this case, the service refers to mobile apps.
Ad LTV is the total revenue generated from advertising by an average user during his or her existence as a user.

This report focuses on D7 Ad LTV (also known as D7 Ad ARPU) and unlike previous reports, it also compares D7 and D30 Ad LTV data. This is the total amount of revenue generated by the average user calculated from the day he or she installed the app and over the following 7 and 30 consecutive days.



The purpose of the Ad LTV report is to expose in app monetization specialists to the industry’s benchmarks so that their monetization strategy will become more accurate and based on complete unbiased data.

This study is based on aggregated data collected through the SOOMLA engine during Q2 of 2019.
The company analyzed the activity of users across the globe – over 80 million users viewed more than 9 billion in over 450 apps.
