Creating a Verizon Media Campaign

Feature Summary: The following document describes how to set up a campaign for Verizon Media or any Verizon Media Partner.

NOTE: Only one Verizon Media campaign within Free App Analytics is required to track ALL Verizon Media traffic. Any additional Verizon Media campaigns setup with Free App Analytics will display no activity.

NOTE: Create one Tracker for each Verizon Media Partner you are working with. It is not required to create a Segment for each Verizon Media Partner within the Campaign; all Verizon Media Platforms Partner Trackers can reside in a single Segment.

NOTE: In order for data to be properly attributed to Verizon Media Partners, a proper naming convention must be used when setting up your campaigns in Verizon Media. For more information about the proper naming conventions to be used for Verizon Media Partners within Verizon Media, refer to our Verizon Media Partner Naming Conventions support documentation.


BEST PRACTICES: Due to Free App Analytics only requiring one (1) Tracker for all Verizon Media campaigns, it is best to keep the naming convention general (i.e., Verizon Media).


Data Needed Before Beginning Process:

  • Numeric app store app ID (iOS – found within the app’s store URL)
  • Package Name (Android)
