So we have the modern smartphone technology, great funding, awesome team, and great determination. However the mobile development world is packed with new and existing players which makes it hard for you to get your apps discovered. Here are 5 tips for how to stand out from your competitors and get more downloads.
Just as important as updating a blog, your photodirector apk must be updated with relevant and engaging content. You need to keep the end user engaged, or just as quickly as they downloaded your app, they can remove it.
Apple lets developers offer both a free and paid version of the same app, and a free sample is probably the most successful marketing strategy ever. People want to try things. There are plenty of CrApps (crappy apps) out there, so why should people risk money on an app they know nothing about from a company they know even less about? If you can give people a taste that is just enough, they’ll buy the whole meal from you! This way you take away much of the risk.
Be sure to send an email notification to your subscribers with URL links to the Apple and Android (Google Play) Marketplaces. So they can download it. Don’t forget to incentivize them in some way for doing so!
PRMac, a free (or almost free) press release distribution service, and the MacNN (Macintosh News Network) syndicate (free to submit) are definitely worth the price of submission. Competing services can charge over $600 for distribution within the United States alone, so these are valuable and less costly alternatives. They say the press release is dead, but these offerings directly targeted your potential customers. You never know who you might reach; and it’s vital to provide a press release when soliciting all forms of media.
We still consider texting as the gateway to the mobile marketing revolution, but the application marketplace is truly the next frontier, as smart phones turn into the intersection of everything that we do in our daily lives.
Overall, the Mac App Store will make the process of finding and downloading applications that you want or need much easier for the end user. Now it remains to be seen how well the developers respond to the Store and whether they would choose to put their apps there, knowing they will have to pay 30% of the cost of the app to Apple, which they can avoid if they just continue the way they do now through their own website. And unlike the iPhone, the Mac is not restricted to downloading apps only through the App Store. But if Apple’s track record is anything to go by, we feel that the Mac Store is going to be a success.
