How to Advertise Your Apps
Have you recently created an app that’s going to change the world as we know it? You’ll still need to advertise it first. Here are four useful places where you can let others know about your genius.
iTunes routinely features new apps on its splash page. If you can gather enough reviews, rankings and overall “buzz” about your app, you just might find it officially promoted by Apple one day.
The next time you post a video to YouTube, include links to your app in its description. This works especially well if the video itself is related to the app in some way, so you can promote it by saying something like “find out more when you install this app!”
3. Desktop App Distributors
Companies like AdKnowledge will help you distribute your app to countless desktop users all around the world. If you’re interested in their services, find out here how you can get them.
4. Online Forums
If your app is a game, advertise it on gaming forums. If your app helps people find parking spots in New York City, advertise it on both driving forums and NYC forums. Whatever your app does, promote it within that specific community.
These are just a few ways to spread the word about your app. Remember, even Flappy Bird wasn’t an overnight sensation. It took time, energy and marketing mojo for even the most viral of apps to gain a foothold in the industry.
