    I think you have missed one of the major marketing source i.e. social media. Social media is the best and easiest way to promote anything what you want.
    Create a social media page, and post in related groups about your application.
    Update your page with your application features, why it is different from others.

    I think you have to focus on learning ASO - App Store Optimization.

    Basically, this is the process of making sure you optimize your mobile app so it can rank higher in search results.

    The better your skills in the ASO game, the more persons your app is going to reach.

    You can find lots of info online.

    It’s just a matter of searching and devoting yourself. It’s hard-work but it actually pays to find how to rank higher.

    Hope this helped!

    Cheers!

    You're in for a slow and hard road if you're not going to pay for promotion.

    Paying people on youtube/snapchat to use your app and post about it does real well!

    Certainly there are some free methods to promote apps.
    - Exchange installs & reviews
    You can find some groups that app developers can exchange installs and reviews each other online. However, this method will take much longer time.

    - Social media networks
    Creating a Facebook Page for your app is a smart way to communicate with users. You can post updated news or features on the page, and get feedbacks. However, there's one thing you should notice is that do not post only about your app, that is boring.

    - Offline promotion
    You may ask your friends and families to help you spread your app in their relationship circle. Also, participate in meetings or conferences that are relevant to your App, and make full use of it to build partnerships.

    Hi there! To promote your mobile app, you need to:

    1. Create promotional contents featuring this app (make sure it's SEO optimized)
    2. Sharing these contents through social media.
    3. Make a PR campaign about it.

    I hope you find my suggestion helpful...

    Absolutely you can try some free methods to promote apps. While some will take longer time to get good results.

    Press Release

    Press Release will obtain very positive results thanks to the “newness” factor associated with Apps. You will post your app features on the press release sites, related column, etc.

    Cross promotion
    Once you published your app in Store, you can market it with cross promotion with other apps by installs and reviews exchange. It is free while it is still hard to find that publishers like you. You may try some Cross-promotion networks (CPN), Facebook group or exchange forums.

    Make a video
    Videos shows great ability even just 30 seconds, it has power to show users why the App is worth a try. Make up a story of your app? Show the real life? Yeah, both OK.

    Offline promotion
    Make connect with your friends and families. You may ask them to help you spread your app in their relationship circle. Also, participate in meetings or conferences that are relevant to your App, and make full use of it to build partnerships.

    Content Promotion
    It is something like PR, which also helps app/app link with essays. It is your own blog, we mean you can introduce any information of your app. And you post the blog in some marketing sites like Quora to get more external links.

    Social network
    1) Facebook
    2) Instagram
    3) YouTube
    4) Twitter

    Promoting mobile app with SEO services works for long time. There are several ways to promote a mobile app. I have listed some of them below:
    • Prepare a teaser web page and release it before 1 or 2 months before releasing the app. Identify those email ids, who have shown interest in your app. These emails help to send notification after releasing the app.
    • Prepare a website for the app for web visitors.
    • Post blogs in app's website. It will interact people to app.
    • Share your content on linkedin, facebook, twitter, google+ to promote app
    • Create a video about features and advantages of app and promote it.
