Mobile Apps, The App Store, App Store Millionaires, these are all phrases which are being thrown around and talked about hugely. These are the new buzzwords and people see the App Store and speak about it like it’s a complete gold mine. Well I am writing this to tell you they are correct. The App Store is a complete gold mine, and it’s relatively easy to stand out – if you have the correct iPhone App Marketing plan.
Individuals are making millions of dollars on what was once just an idea. These people do one thing differently to most people. They actually stand up, stop talking and action their ideas, taking it from a dream to a reality.
I can’t give you an app idea, but I can help you take an idea and put it into fruition.
Since the age of twelve, I have been active online and ever since the birth of the App Store I have been experimenting with various applications, trying to understand the way the rankings work, how the new app ‘ecosystem’ works and how I can exploit the opportunities in front of me.
How to beat the App Store is something I have been learning for the last six years, and over the last few years it has become clear to me that actually the most overlooked aspect what you need to become successful with apps is the marketing and promotional activities you do just as your app is launching.
Many people overlook marketing, and simply think; ‘If I get the product right, customers will come’. This is probably the most common way of thinking, but it’s just plain wrong. You can make the best product in the world, but if no one knows you made it, how’s it ever going to become successful? By magic?
You hear a lot of people asking for developers, but you hear less people asking for iPhone App Marketing. This is a generic problem across the industry, with 500,000 apps now live on the store, you can’t just rely on a brilliant product, you need a presence and you need to create serious buzz around the product you are launching in order for it to gain traction.
My aim over the next few posts is to teach you about App Store Marketing so please leave your feedback and questions in the comments section, or email me and I will try my best to answer your questions.
Stay tuned and keep reading my next few posts about iPhone App Marketing as I reveal a lot about the methods I used and still use to maximize my success rates with apps and online businesses.
