How ChimpChange Improved Conversions 42% with Google UAC


ChimpChange bridges the gap between peer-to-peer payments and traditional banking, making it easy, and affordable to send fast and secure mobile payments and do all your daily transactional banking. With their single app, ChimpChange is transforming how users spend and save money in a connected and mobile world.

To reach that mobile audience, ChimpChange partnered with Bamboo to expand into new user groups and drive conversions at scale.



We helped ChimpChange leverage Google Universal App Campaigns (UAC) to achieve those goals while improving their overall CPI and acquisition volume.

Even within a competitive environment, ChimpChange was able to attract new user groups with a diverse acquisition program managed by Bamboo. Driven by steep acquisition goals, ChimpChange added Google AdWords UAC to their existing paid social programs and were able to not only scale their audience reach but significantly drive down overall CPA.
