There are hundreds of thousands of apps that are available today. There are apps for all sorts of problems and games for almost any occasion. For developers however, getting your app in front of more people and getting more downloads can be difficult. Here are tips to get your app noticed and downloaded more.
Tell People about It
One of the most important things you can do when you release an app is to let people know it’s available. There are many ways you can do this but using social media may be the best option. Talk to people who can draw attention to your app such as a YouTube celebrity. Simply ask them to review it or what they think and they may decide to promote it in some way. Another way is by finding online forums where people are having a problem with something your app can handle. Let them know about your app in a way that doesn’t sound like shameless promotion. Getting people talking about your app can have a huge effect on downloads. You’ll need to be the one to get the app kick started however.
Ask People to Rate the App
Lots of people download apps and never rate them. Getting a good rating on an app is important and could affect how your app is ranked in the app store. You can actually add a splash screen or something when someone closes or opens the app to let them know they can rate it. And keep reminding them over and again until they do. These sorts of nag tactics do work and your ranking will likely increase.
Keep the Updates Coming
Updates for an app is important and if you simply place an app thinking it will always work you may want to rethink your strategy. Updates are important and can be an opportunity to spread the word about the app. During the update ask users to tell their friends on Facebook or Twitter about their experience with your app. During every update cycle you should see a boost in downloads which can bring much more exposure for your app.
These tips can help you get your app noticed by many more people than simply uploading and forgetting. Don’t take some of these tips too lightly because not doing them could mean mediocre downloads and a disappointed feeling. Gain more exposure for your app and get people talking about it is key to getting more downloads.
