- Audience targeting

Reddit Conversion Lift. This tool analyzes the next steps taken by users after viewing a campaign on Reddit, using the Reddit Pixel, Conversions API and/or Mobile Measurement Partner (MMP) integration. It analyzes campaign conversion metrics such as:
- App install
- Page visits
How it works. The new features work in conjunction with Reddit’s existing third-party measurement tools to give advertisers a more detailed insight into the performance of their campaign.
