Authentic user profiles and a simple registration experience are important for Paktor. To achieve these goals, the company integrated Facebook Login so that people can easily create accounts, log into the app, and create rich user profiles. Paktor noticed that people accessing the platform via Facebook Login have a 47% higher day one retention rates and a 10% higher daily engagement compared to other users. 90% of all Paktor users log in through Facebook Login.

The Solution

As an FbStart member it leverages benefits from Facebook products and its partners to grow its apps. Through FbStart, Paktor discovered Account Kit. Paktor integrated Account Kit which allowed users to log into the application using their phone number. After adopting it, Paktor saw a 95% user conversion rate with Account Kit with most of their users using their phone numbers as their primary identity.

Example of SoloLearn App

Paktor relied on Facebook Mobile App Ads to drive high-quality app installs and grow the brand's identity. By running ads showcasing consumer success stories, Paktor obtained 50% of all downloads from Facebook. Paktor also used Facebook Analytics for Apps to better understand their users and fine-tune their ad messaging and targeting. Analytics for Apps helped them analyze user behavior based on device, age and gender, allowing them to reach their most loyal customers and find those with similar traits with Custom and Lookalike Audiences.
