2. Submit for review

What’s the first thing most of us do before considering a download or a purchase? We look for reviews. Reviews give products credibility and this is crucial in the hyper-competitive app market when you need to stand out from the pack.

So email out a short, punchy pitch to all the relevant publications, freelancers and bloggers you can find – including a free download for your app of course. Just a few citations online will hugely increase the visibility of your app

3. Use a freemium model

The freemium model – where the initial app download is free but users are charged if they want a more extensive version – can be highly effective. The offer of a free download means users have nothing to lose by trying out your app and a large user base can be built up swiftly.

Thereon, the incentive of unlocking more features and perks will help generate a wave of paid subscribers which of course means more money for your work. Don’t be too gung-ho with aggressive pricing for the outset; embrace a trial system and make the initial sign-up as appealing as it can be.

4. Nail your target audience

When you’re raising awareness about your app, make sure your target audience is clearly defined in your pitch. With the absolute plethora of apps out on the market you need to be hitting a particular segment of users head on to gain credibility – something that is particularly relevant for business apps.

As startup expert Heather Ann Carson comments on CopyHackers.com, “For B2B you have to really narrow down your target audience as much as possible, and turn that audience into loyal followers who will spread the word about your app to other businesses.”

5. Offer giveaway’s and coupons

As we’ve touched upon already, incentives can be crucial to generating the all important user community, so spice up the appeal some more with coupons and giveaways.

Why not run quiz competitions on your social media channels? Winners could win free app downloads for them and their friends as well as other promotional items you might have – think t-shirts, bags and phone/tablet cases. The effect of these promotions is multiple, as not only does your user base increase, but your brand is enhanced too, with users becoming familiar with the app’s identity and the people behind it. Perfect promotion.
