2. XPO+Branch.io

XPO has integrated with Branch.io   to supercharge your mobile revenue and growth. Branch is the industry leading mobile measurement and deep linking platform, which provides an attribution analysis with links built to acquire, engage, and measure across all devices, channels, and platforms. 

By using deep links   from Branch and embedding them into ads, you can direct prospects directly to the exact contents or products instead of them having to fumble and find their way to the right contents/products/page, thus improving their user experience.

You can create Branch deep links only once you have configured your Branch Account.


What Is Deep Linking And Why Do You Need It?

When an item (e.g. content/product) is on the web (or mobile web), providing a link that an online visitor can click from an ad directly to that exact item instead of just to the homepage even though the item can be multiple clicks away or multi-level deep in a website is still feasible and straightforward. Such a direct link to the 'buried' item is called "deep link".

On mobile app, however, deep linking doesn't work as expected as with the web (including mobile web). When a mobile user sees an ad and click on it, he/she will be taken to the mobile web browser even if he/she has installed that particular brand's mobile app, which likely would have provided a much better user experience. Deep link allows you to direct the user to the exact content inside an app. So, when a user shares an item he/she discovers with others, he/she can send a deep link to bring them directly to that item in the app. Without deep link, they would have to go to the app's main/top screen or homepage, search for the item or browse around till they find that item, hopefully with enough patience so as not to drop off.

This is where Branch.io comes to the rescue. Branch.io does the heavy lifting by combining every deep linking standard into a single solution and makes deep links work to direct users right to the actual item on mobile apps.
