Marketing app ideas
Social media is your best friend. It is an easy and free way to share news with your viewers and get the people talking. Create a Facebook/Twitter/ Instagram page, get followers and post. You can market your app there, if a customer has liked your page they are obviously interested in your business, your app can provide information about you, so your app will be downloaded. Post regularly to avoid being forgotten and make sure you’re marketing your app in a professional informative way and not spam. You can have them all in the one place with the help of our app. Connect with customers and follow back and comment within reason. Answer any of the questions they have about your business. Make sure to explain that all information they would like about your business is in the app.
If you’re worried about running out of things to say on your social media pages, start writing blogs. You can then share links to your blogs in your posts on a daily basis. Make sure to write about topics that would engage the customer and even try to relate back to your business, maybe even a bit about your app. Keep the heading short and sweet and topics that will make a reader want to click into. In result, your viewers will share your blogs with their friends on their page and it continues on.
Get people talking about your app in their blogs. Ask blog writers to take a look at your app, look specifically for bloggers who have the same target audience as you, for example, if your app is related to children try reaching out to mothers who write blogs, they can do a review on their blogs and then you have reached their audience plus your own.
Show your customers your creative side and make a promo video for your app. A picture is worth a thousand words, and according to Dr. James McQuivey of Forrester Research. A video of one minute is worth 1.8 million words. 45.4% of Internet users watch at least one video online over the course of a month. It’s a great way of capturing your audience’s attention in a small amount of time but still providing all the information they need to hear about the app.
If you find this way of marketing suits you, try setting up a YouTube channel and post regularly, share the videos with your customers on your social media sites.
