    Yup, you'll want to work with a few CPI Ad Networks. However, it would be helpful to know your est. spend and genre/platform/geos you want to launch in to give you a better suggestion.

    Here are some you can look into:
    - Chartboost
    - Applovin
    - RevMob
    - Appia
    - mNectar (playable ads)
    - AdColony (mobile video)

    OR you can partner with a platform partner (that can buy across many of the networks for you) through a managed service, like Fiksu or Grow Mobile.

      You need to start by putting yourself in your target user's shoes: what do they search for on Google? What blogs or sites do they read? What forums do they participate in? What social media do they use most actively.... and what groups are they active in? Once you've answered those questions, then you know that you have to get your App visible in those places... that will give you some ideas for marketing strategy. Then you want to make sure you have content written that addresses the keywords (Google searches), offer to do guest blog posts, get active in relevant forums, social networks, etc.

      I do a lot of work marketing for software and app developers. So ping me if you need any more specific input... or the marketing toolkit in my signature might be helpful too.

    Be careful with fiverr and do a good check on the person you hire because they can really ruin your day sometimes.

    Social media is a must for a new app but look for the right audience, don't just offer it to all random people. Installs are very important but uninstalls are what makes an app viral or disappear from everywhere.

    Best Regards

    Google adwords, I can install apps at a price 10x less than the global average and way way less than CPI networks. Depending on the app you can get far more installs. Contact me if you want to know more.

    Ultimate App Marketing Strategies for both IOS & Android

    Today, every app businesses and even developers would want to learn the mediums & methods to market their iOS & android app. Why not? Currently, the app market has given enough reasons to start working upon the app marketing strategies just when they come up with a strong idea and secondly, when developing their app.


    To begin with, let’s have an overview of the mobile app market statistics and the app market future

    · The apple’s app store is about to hit 1 million apps so you can wonder on the total number of android apps in the market.

    · According to recent studies, the predicted future statistics say downloads will continue to grow to exceeding 200 billion by the end of 2017, and revenues will reach 63.5 billion US dollars.

    Knowing which, let’s discuss on various methods that can come in handy for marketing an iOS or Android app.

    App Website for a Complete Presentation:

    As app website tends to be a complete presentation of your app, its very motive is to grab attention thereby trigger downloads. And, the best part is that a website dedicated to your app does that effortlessly. It showcases your app name and icon, an app pitch for your app, app badges so that it is easier for the visitors to download the app, displays compatible phones and also a promotional video that communicates quick visual information and so on.

    App Store Optimization (ASO)

    ASO has recently embarked in the app marketing world. Now the question is what does ASO do to your app? It is a systematic procedure that simply assists in strengthening your app marketing strategy in the best possible way. As in like improving app name, writing precise app description, deploying unique screenshots and thumbnails that easily grabs users’ attention, and localizing every feature of the app, and many more. This gives better app visibility on the app store eventually a substantial number of downloads, as well.

    Media Coverage:

    Needless to say conducting typical PR activities including precisely drafting press releases, and having an established relationship with relevant bloggers and journalists who can offer a genuine readership for reviewing the app can allows you to reach out to a large number of genuine target audience of your app.

    Mobile App Advertising:

    This is one great marketing platform for your app and it can be carried out through Ad Networks. From simple banner ads to video ads and rich interactive ads that appear in the apps and mobile sites- all these favours advertisers and monetization services to the developers.

    As a bottom line, getting noticed on the Google Play and App Store is getting tougher day by day. This is when a proficient app marketing agency comes into play in order to witness the success of your app!

  • Start promoting it before it is launch - send info and the key (if applicable) to bloggers, vlogers, media, create a website, fb page, twiitter, etc. Think of some monetization plaform such as AdMob, Appnext or Smaato if you want to make sure the app will be nicely promoted and maybe consider guest posts.

    Here are some tips.
    1.Get more reviews and high ratings
    When you have more number of positive reviews and high ratings,it will have an impact on your app's rankings and image. People naturally prefer downloading apps with higher ratings and better reviews.This factor easily translates into better user experience.Thus, your first goal should be to increase the number of positive reviews and ratings for your app.
    2.Keyword Optimization
    Conduct keyword research and find the right keywords to be used in the app description and title. Effective keyword optimization will help in improving your app's ranking in the app store and further increase its downloads. Choose popular keyphrase combinations which are not used regularly.
    3. Offer Discounts
    Offering special discounts is another strategy to help increase your app downloads. You can also use other apps to promote your specially discounted app. The more lucrative the offer, the higher the potential number of downloads you can expect to get.
