The success of the mobile application depends on more than just the app development process. It also depends on app marketing strategies. As an on-demand app development company, we have the responsibility to list out the factors behind the success of a mobile application after the development process. We utilize the opportunity and discuss such aspects through this blog. Let’s check what comes as the first priority after developing a mobile app.
Usually, the role of app development will be ended after the deployment of a mobile application. But it does not mean that your business gets benefits from the application. The mobile application will be beneficial only when it starts to fulfill the objective of developing it. Such an objective may be anything related to your business. For example, if you’re developing a mobile application to provide training to your new employees remotely, then the app is beneficial only if it can provide seamless online training sessions.
Each mobile application has its unique goal. The gaming app aims to engage users and convert them to buy in-game products through in-app purchases, and an e-Commerce app aims to drive new customers and engage existing ones in addition to providing a seamless online purchasing experience.
Depending on the objective of your mobile application you need to move forward with the app promotion process after launching the app. In case, you have developed a mobile for a closed community (only for staff of a firm) then, you may not need to spend too much time in the app promotion processes.
In case, you’re wishing to reach and engage a wide range of users then you must need dedicated resources to take promotions for your app and business. Let’s discuss it in detail in the next part.
After the development and deployment of the mobile app, you need to prioritize app promotion activities first. It’s nothing but promoting your mobile application to drive more users and convince them to download and use your application. Let’s check how it actually works and the effective ways to promote your mobile app.
Before starting to promote a mobile application you need to consider the following things.
Target Audience: You need to know the exact target customers/ users group before plotting a plan for promoting the mobile application.
Competitive Analysis: Knowing potential competitors and their strategies are important to compete with them effectively in the market.
Plot a Roadmap: After analyzing the essentials you have to choose the best way to promote your mobile application.
After creating the best effective app promotion plan, you can proceed to promote your mobile app. Let’s check the ways to promote your mobile app.
Promotion is important to drive potential users to your mobile app. It helps to raise awareness about the app and get it in front of potential users. Without effective promotion, it can be difficult for people to discover your app, which can limit its potential for success.
Effective promotion can also help to drive downloads and increase user engagement. However, you need to follow a consistent promotional plan which should contain the following ways of promotion.
Create a website for your app and optimize it for search engines. It can be used as a landing page for paid ads, and social media ad campaigns. The website can deliver complete data about the app, including its features, pricing, and user reviews. It can also be a valuable resource for marketing and promotion efforts.
In addition to this, the website can enhance your online visibility by enabling search engine optimization. So, optimizing your website for relevant keywords can help you to improve your search engine page rankings and make it easier for people to discover your app through search. The website can also help you to collect email IDs from potential customers which are used to run an email campaign.
Use social media to promote the app and engage with users as it allows you to reach a large, targeted audience in a personal and interactive way. It’ll be useful to share updates about the app, advertise to target specific demographics and interests, engage with users and respond to their comments and reviews on social media, and others.
In recent days almost all social media have their unique analytics tool and scheduling tools. So, you can get the advantage of them publishing your promotional content. Promoting your mobile app through social media also helps you to build a sense of community around the app and encourage word-of-mouth marketing.
Use email marketing to reach out to potential users and give them a reason to download the app. Offering special promotions or discounts to email subscribers can encourage them to try your app.
Provide updates and new features of your app to your email list to keep them engaged and encourage continued use of the app. You can also use email newsletters to share success stories and user reviews to build credibility for your app. Simply, effective email marketing with a call to action to download or open the app can help you to boost customer retention and engagement.
Collaborate with influencers or other businesses to reach a new audience. When you choose this method of marketing, you can reach a wider audience in a short span depending on the capacity of the influencer you choose.
By partnering with influencers who have a relevant audience and are aligned with your brand, you can reach a larger and more targeted group of potential users for your app. Influencers can help to spread the word about your app through their social media channels, blog, or other platforms, and provide valuable endorsements and reviews that can help to build credibility and trust.
It’s a common term to denote multiple types of paid ads. For example, paid search ads, display ads, social media ads, retargeting ads, search engine shopping ads, local service listing/ ads, sponsored ads, video in-stream ads, etc.
Paid ads can help to increase awareness of your app and establish your brand in the market. By consistently promoting your app through paid ads, you can build a strong presence and make it more recognizable to potential users.
App Store Optimization (ASO) is the process of improving the visibility of a mobile app in an app store (such as Google Play or the Apple App Store). This is done through a combination of strategies including keyword optimization, compelling app descriptions, high-quality app screenshots and videos, and user reviews and ratings.
Optimizing your app store listing with relevant keywords can help your potential users to find your application easily. The goal of ASO is to increase the visibility and discoverability of the app in order to drive more downloads and user engagement.
You can hire ASO experts to list your mobile application at the top. By optimizing your app’s listing with relevant keywords and a compelling description, you can increase the chances that it will appear in search results and be seen by potential users.
You can partner with other entities to promote your mobile application. Through the partnership, you can integrate your app with other popular apps or platforms to reach a larger audience. For example, many digital wallet apps integrate with eCommerce sites. Through this, both entities can be benefitted. So, depending on your business profile, you can collaborate with other businesses to get such mutual benefits.
To promote your mobile application, you can conduct referral programs. It’s a kind of marketing and app promotional activity. It allows users to share the download link for your app with a unique referral ID. When new users use the particular link/ referral ID, both will be rewarded with points/ cash/ special offers/ others.
Simply the main objective of a referral program is to acquire new customers through the recommendations of current customers. So, consider offering a loyalty program or referral program to incentivize current users to spread the word about your app.
Through these ways, you can promote your mobile application to maximize the user base. Only by increasing the user base you can obtain the needed result from the mobile app.
