AppAlarm for Developers
Why should I get my App featured?
As developer for Apples mobile Platforms you are very much restricted when it comes to marketing.
You can't do marketing in the App Store itself and are driven to places that have no affiliation with the App Store.
If you start marketing your App like a standard software or a website, you will waste most of your potential to users that don't even have a device to buy your App.
AppAlarm tries to fill the void by beeing a platform where your potential customers get details about new and free Apps. Our users are the customers you are looking for and do have a device to buy your App.
How does making my App free, help me increase sales?
You can increase your sales in many different ways, the basic methods are:
- Increased Visiblity
If it is free, you will get more users for a limited time resulting in a bigger user base.
This results in more people talking about your App, showing it to friends and therefore potential customers.
While it is free, you will gain a big step up in the App Store charts because of the many additional downloads, which will increasing your visibility in the App Store.
- In-App Purchases and Advertising
While your App is free, it does not need to give away all features for free.
You can monetize your increased user base by adding In-App Purchases for additional features.
You can also monetize your new user base by adding Ad's to your App, earning money using networks like iAd or AdMob.
- Promotion of other Apps
You can use your increased user base of an existing App to get started with a bigger user base on the release of a new App.
Tell your users about a new release that is coming and how improved and far better it is. You will get a higher ranking in the App Store charts after the release and that might be the key to the overall success and even could get you featured in Apples „New & Noteworthy”.
