3. Dedicated Website And Social Media Account

When you have a business mobile app, it would be more appropriate to have a dedicated website or a page for the mobile app. Update every detail about your app on the website/ webpage and direct users to the link. Even if the app is not live, do a pre-launch by creating a preview video, and make users sign up for the download email once the app is launched.

Sameway, create a social media account to encourage users to sign-up for app download and engage them with the app. The social media platform can be used to showcase the design and development process of the app, so that the users will eagerly await for the app launch. The main goal of setting up a website and social media account is not to generate traffic, but to drive downloads.

4. Demo Video And App Store

There are many mobile apps available, so it is necessary to differentiate your app from the others. Create a demo video to clearly explain the users about the real-time purpose of the app. Many platforms allow you to do voiceover recording and screen capture features to create a video. This is the easiest marketing material that helps you to explain the value and uniqueness of your app.

Add the demo video along with other images and videos of your app on the online stores. Launching your app on multiple app stores to generate more ratings and users is the best idea you can do for your app. However, after the launch of the app, there will be more room for improvements and updates. So, be prepared to face the challenges.

ASO is nothing but SEO for mobile apps. This is a process that helps to specifically discover your mobile app within the app store.

Optimize the mobile app title with proper keywords, add clear screenshots that display the most important use cases, and fill all the relevant categories in the app store to enhance app visibility.

During the launch week consider setting up paid advertisements to increase organic traction. Google Ads and Facebook Ads are the best medium to start with. This method is suitable for mobile apps that are familiar, like gaming apps. But, mobile apps that require more explanation can use a dedicated landing page that interacts with the users for better understanding of the app
