-- Siddhant Shetty, Product Management Lead at Houzify
As part of the FbStart program, Houzify leveraged Facebook products and external partner benefits extensively to build its app and grow its business.
Houzify integrated Facebook Login to provide customers with an easy way to log in without creating a new username and password; currently 55% of people log into the app this way. Facebook Login also delivered 30% higher sign-up rates over other sign-on mechanisms.
Houzify used Facebook Analytics for Apps extensively to monitor and measure both acquisition and engagement. They created various user segments based on specific actions like creating image collections, number of sessions, and assessed retention rates across these segments. Through this, they were able to find their most engaged users and then used Lookalike Audiences to target and acquire similar customers.
Houzify also leveraged Facebook Analytics for Apps as its core analytics tool to measure customer behavior within its iOS app. They tracked features and events rolled out on iOS and how people were interacting with them to prioritize design decisions for their Android app. They were then able to include changes to their menu button designs and order, and re-design certain functionalities based on consumer drop-off patterns.
Houzify continuously optimized its ad campaigns using Lookalike audiences and saw a 24% reduction in their CPIs using insights from Facebook Analytics for Apps. Facebook Mobile App Ads is the primary user acquisition channel for Houzify, with 85% lower cost of acquisition compared to other channels.
