Default How To Get 5,000 People To Download iPhone/Android App?

Looking for some ideas on getting people to download an iPhone or Andriod App for a Daily Deal Company in the USA. I have a list of strategies including using Social Media, E-Mail Campaigns, Banner Ads and even a ground game.

Are there any places like Fiverr or sites like Twiends where you can buy downloads?

Thanks in advance for any ideas !!!!

So glad it is not my company getting a product marketed. Imagine finding out that your app got downloaded by a gig on fiverr for $4 a 1000

Did you know that for $17 you can create your own Video Articles Instantly

Good point my friend, we are looking for people in USA only and its a national company.
We have plan for local downloads already. Looking for ideas nationally. Everyone likes a deal company like Groupon right? lol...

SMS campaign and Quick Codes! Targeted geographically. Send out a quick code for a coupon in an area. The quick code will send them to a page to download the coupon.

Two things can happen at this point:

1. Bundle the app with the coupon
2. Simply offer access to the app at the time of coupon download.

OK maybe I am missing something here. You are doing work for a company and need methods to get people to download a app for a daily deal. From what I understand is this app will then send out daily deals to these people that downloaded the app to there phone.

Are you aware then that if you use a service similar to twiends or getting somebody to download say 500 app for you for $5 that all these app are going no where as they are fake downloads. If you are aware of this is your customer aware of this and if your customer is then he is scamming his client he is advertising for by inflating false registered viewers

If I am wrong correct me

Thanks

Wouldn't it look great in the App store if it had 5,000 downloads? Might make another 50,000 real customers download it...kind of a kick start? Just brainstorming here...

I see your logic, having a few thousand download could give potential downloaders a little more confidence in the app. However, it goes without saying that real downloads would help a lot more.

There was actually a task to get the most app downloads on a recent episode of "The Apprentice" (in the UK). Try and find it on Youtube for some inspiration :p
