Are there any success stories of buying incentivized installs?

I have been browising through the entire MMWA forum and I have seen people complaining that incentivized installs cannot get them organic traffic, are there any successful stories of buying incentivized installs, i.e. getting tons of organic after buying tens of thousands incentivized installs?

I think its pretty obvious that it works for some apps since its the #1 strategy used to get attention. I’m sure it was easier a couple years ago but for new developers like myself its prob the one of the few ways to get ranked these days. Of course success is gonna depend on the app since the lift only lasts a couple days.
