How to promote your iOS App

Apple Logo

This article is all about promoting your new iOS app on the App Store. Hopefully with this guide you’ll be able to increase your downloads or just find some new tricks to get you going.

   NOTE: Remember, here at TechNewsCentral we offer a review service! Allowing you to get an unbiased review of your application alongside free social media promotion and a featured story on our website for 5 days. The price? Just $39!

The first step to take with your application (on any platform) is to round up friends and family with their iPhones, iPads, iPod’s and so on and get them to download and review your application. No-one wants to download an application without any reviews!

Now, hopefully you have a few reviews on your application to get you started. Next, we need to delve into the promotion of your iOS application. One of the best things you could do is get a promotional video made for your application. Videos represent one of the easiest ways for you to communicate just what your app does. Utilise YouTube, Vimeo, Vine, Instragram and any other video services you can find. There can never be too much promotion in my eyes.

Next you should think about getting some web presence. Set yourself up a landing page for your application. Make it mobile friendly and include a smart app banner to allow easy purchase or download of your application. If your video is ready to rock and roll, you should also include that video on your page as well.

The next step is to generate some interest in your application. Services like our Review Service enable you to get some awesome promotion for your application. However, you can also reach out to sites such as 148apps, AppStoreApps and AppAdvice to see if you can get some promotion from them. Don’t forget to target trusted people and bloggers in your app’s niche. If you’re running a cheap food recipe app, target charities that help people with little income to eat healthy. They may advertise the app to their audience, giving you some good, targeted promotion!

Other simple tips include acting upon your reviews. There is nothing worse than taking the time to leave a review with a few suggestions, and seeing that the app developer takes no notice whatsoever. Acting upon popular requests or new feature suggested by users shows that you care about your app and that you’re committed to improving it.
