How To Make Your App Get Popular Recommendations In The App Market?

Dec 9 2020

For a new application to enter the app store’s category list in a short time, the first condition is that you need a large number of customers (they will book your service), and to attract more customers, you need to first Push up the rankings to get more exposure. This question is like the "chicken or egg" discussion that bothers people.

A new company or a newly developed application usually cannot meet one of these two conditions. To "sell" an application, you need a practical marketing plan. More than 50,000 apps are listed on the Apple App Store every month. This means that to create a stable user community, your application must have strong performance, so that this application can stand out from the crowd. Let's take a look at how to promote your app in the app market.
Make App Get Popular Recommendations

What should I do before the application is launched?


The rule of thumb is "start early."


The first step is to analyze the local market situation. 


This includes:


1) Know your competitors as much as possible. Here you can find our marketing profile template and the questions to answer.
2) Try to find your unique market niche. Knowing your competitors can enable you to understand how to take different measures to create a strong brand that is special for customers.
3) Formulate price policy. Dumping can work well for young and angry brands. However, this is a short-term strategy. You can't always attract customers with low prices. Another important part of pricing is the driver's bill. Develop some reliable programs to motivate the driver to work more.

Develop an integrated brand strategy. 


For example: the brand franchise model we often see uses the influence of mature brands to expand the market and profit from the huge word-of-mouth communication.


1) Learn to understand your target audience. 

 Who are you talking to? How to reach them? What are you going to share? How will you make your promotion worth mentioning?


2) Try to get as much information as possible about local ways of using popular communication channels. Such a thing may be a really promotional gold mine. This step and the previous steps may require some professional help, so we recommend that you hire a localized marketing agency. Their prices are usually more competitive, and their knowledge of regional details can be impressive.

Before launching, please start your relevant external promotion activities. Usually, 6-8 weeks in advance is a good time. Why is it so early? Because it gives people time to get used to your service, which brings in more customers. Develop clear key performance indicators so that success can be checked at each stage. Continuously monitor progress: daily, weekly, monthly, yearly.

For unique new products on the market, the definition of key performance indicators is particularly difficult. Analyzing data from past advertising campaigns can make it easier. If there is no data available in the past, try the following method: analyze using their average market benchmarks as a starting point, and use the experience of market experts.

After launching marketing activities, KPIs will need to be adjusted.


Now, let's deal with this terrible term "outreach". Basically, what are the ways to contact an app-based taxi company?

Before the application is launched, you need to make a customer profile and launch your promotion based on customer needs.

Use social media for taxi marketing


In order to reach more drivers, you should know which communication channels they use. Uber’s marketers told them that potential drivers spend a lot of time on Facebook, so Uber has launched a huge Facebook Ads campaign before launching in San Francisco. Where does your potential driver spend time? Maybe they are not on social media at all. You should rely on the word of mouth initiated by a few "ambassador drivers"?

Ensure media promotion to promote your app


Publicizing in the local media is another way to cultivate curiosity among future drivers. Think about TV, radio, newspapers. Share your story and tell your target audience how your service is different from the past. Small media are usually released for free. Serving ads to app review sites is also a good way, but be careful to advertise to what your target audience actually reads. The wider the coverage before the launch date, the better you can solve the "chicken or egg problem".

Promote your app online to attract customers


Regarding the issue of acquiring new customers, one of the basic tasks to be done is to place initial ads. In order to maximize its effectiveness and output, please start as soon as possible. Use online promotional tools (such as Google AdWords) to attract more users to your app. You can also launch Facebook and Instagram ads (or any other social media campaigns) to prepare for launching the app.

On-line promotions are usually not as expensive as traditional offline methods and are very effective: they provide the widest range of positioning opportunities. However, on-line advertising requires a certain level of proficiency and experience, so we recommend that you hire a digital marketing agency to make it perform well. Don't forget to declare your on-line status. Now that we are talking about on-line promotions, please keep this in mind: creating and maintaining social media accounts is very important. As the name suggests, Facebook, Youtube and Instagram can create real customer communities.

The content you place on social media will also spread because it is easy to share content here. The hotter the promotion, the more customers you can get, and the less you invest in advertising.

Optimize your app to enter the store category list


Last but probably the most important thing you need to do before launching the app: a clear, bulletproof strategy for optimizing the app for store distribution. In our blog, you can read the final guide on App Store and Google Play Store optimization. You can make the first step of optimization yourself.

Plan marketing campaign budget


How to prepare a financial plan for marketing activities before launching the application?


"Ideally, everyone would like to see a beautiful "one size fits all" budget plans. Sadly, such a thing can never meet the actual situation.

1) Collect enough information to make financial forecasts. Use data from success stories, references and insights from other companies. Your product team or/and the marketing agent you will hire need to provide realistic benchmarks.
2) Plan the necessary marketing investments. This will depend on how precise you plan to launch the application: should you start on a soft start campaign first, or should you start an aggressive campaign now? When making a financial plan, you should consider the specific conditions of the market, the number of competitors, and many other variables.
3) Investments that are ready to return to the market are also affected by many factors. Profit model, its rationality, how much money you plan to make from users, etc. The actual financial plan can only be derived from all these data.

It is wise to plan to allow a certain amount of marketing budget fluctuations: this will allow you to make more flexible decisions in the future. "

    • Patti Cohen

      @Kirk Hoffman The iOS app name can be up to 255 characters long, while the Android store has a minimum of 8 characters for the app name, and App Store only has one chance to change the app name, so it is important to choose a good app name. Reply

    • Patti Cohen

      @Kirk Hoffman The most important thing is that nowadays smartphone users, the main downloaders, will only focus on the first 25 characters, so this part of the name title is very important. Reply

    • Patti Cohen

      @Kirk Hoffman Do thorough research on your competitors' target keywords and try to include them in the app title as well. Avoid using any special characters in the app name and make sure that the app name you choose is not too similar to the name of an existing app, as that will only bring more competition. Reply

      @Oscar Ortiz If you also have to choose a sub-category, choose one that is: A) accurate; and B) doesn't have much competition. Never arbitrarily place an app in the wrong category just to avoid competition - it may incur a penalty and users will find out. Reply

    how does the in-app messaging channels of mobile marketing work? Reply
    • Doris Morton

      @Kimberly Rowe As the name implies, users will see these messages when inside the app. They commonly take the form of a full-page interstitial or banner and are often programmed to appear once the user session begins. Reply

    • Doris Morton

      @Kimberly Rowe In-app messages can be scheduled to appear just once or multiple times depending on how urgent or important you feel the message is for the end-user. You can also schedule expiration dates so that users who launch the app on a Monday won’t see a message about last weekend’s flash sale. Reply

    • Doris Morton

      @Kimberly Rowe In-app is arguably the most seamless of all the mobile channels since it doesn’t have a specific opt-in/opt-out process and constructing basic in-app visuals won’t be a stretch for those used to building emails in Iterable. Given that in-app is also less intrusive than SMS or push, it is a prime channel for nurturing long-term engagement. Reply

    • Doris Morton

      @Kimberly Rowe In addition to promotions, in-app messaging can be great for other use cases, such as onboarding during a user’s first session, drawing attention to new app features, or converting a freemium user into a premium subscription, as seen in the example from Lose It! below. Reply

      @Roland Pittman Push notifications are messages that come from your mobile app and appear on a user’s lock screen. When swiped through, the user is directed to a specific screen in your app. Reply

    • Angie Cook

      @Roland Pittman This is an excellent way to engage (and re-engage) mobile and tablet users. Similar to SMS, push has the ability to be an intimate channel. Messaging should be concise and handled with more caution to encourage engagement. Reply

    • Angie Cook

      @Roland Pittman Unlike with channels like email, there isn’t a warm-up process that is required; users who are opted in to receive your push notifications will receive them. However, note that there is one big difference between devices running on the two major operating systems, iOS and Android. Reply

    • Angie Cook

      @Roland Pittman On iOS, users must choose to opt in to push messaging, whereas, on Android, users are automatically opted in and must choose to opt out. We will discuss further considerations related to this in future posts in this blog series. Reply

    Are there any tips for choosing the keywords? Reply
    • Vernon Porter

      @Nelson Holmes 1. THINK LIKE A CUSTOMER Identify your target audience and put yourself into the shoes of a customer when you create your initial list of keywords. Ask yourself, 'If I wanted to find one of these products or services, what would I type into Google?' You can also consult others, such as friends, family members, or even current customers to get their opinion on phrases they would use when searching for your products and services. Reply

    • Vernon Porter

      @Nelson Holmes 2. STUDY THE COMPETITION Make a list of your main competitors and go to their websites to see what keywords they are targeting. Read the content and view the metatags to help identify the keywords they are targeting. Looking at your competitor's keywords will not only help you see what you could be forgetting but also help broaden your list of ideas. Reply

    • Vernon Porter

      @Nelson Holmes 3. UNDERSTAND THE LONG TAIL KEYWORD Long-tail keywords are a combination of three or more words or phrases. While long-tail keywords tend to boast lower search volumes, they generally attract more relevant traffic, are typically less competitive, and easier to rank well on. Choose long-tail keywords that help to specify your product or service. Reply

    • Vernon Porter

      @Nelson Holmes 4. USE KEYWORD RESEARCH TOOLS If you are using Google Ads you can use their keyword tool to research your potential target keywords. With these tools and others like SEMRUSH and Raventools, you can gather data on keyword volume and trends, keyword competition, similar keywords and more. Reply

    • Vernon Porter

      @Nelson Holmes 5. ANALYZE THE RESULTS After choosing your keywords don't forget to monitor them and analyze the results. There are often trending keywords or phrases, along with new keywords your competitors may be using. Don't forget to utilize your keywords wherever possible! Insert your keywords into blog posts, social media posts, metatags, and your website's content. The more you use keywords within your content, the easier it will be for your target audience to find you. Reply

    • Howard Palmer

      @Boyd Freeman From an app marketer, if you aren’t taking full advantage of organic app installs, you’re missing a great deal on your best app users. An organic install is more valuable because it’s based on people’s clear intent to find and install a certain app to serve a specific need, which isn’t the case when she or he is exposed to an ad. It’s a higher quality customer relationship from the get-go. Reply

    What is UGC? Reply
    • Jody Hines

      @Maureen Abbott UGC stands for user-generated, which continues to be a highly impactful form of marketing. UGC is content related to your brand – text, images, audio, and video – that users voluntarily create and post online. Unlike influencer marketing, in which users are sought out and paid by marketers, user-generated content engenders a higher degree of trust based on real-life, unpaid experience and opinions. Reply

      @Maureen Abbott User-generated content can be a double-edged sword. If UGC is positive, it can generate priceless word of mouth that drives sales and trust in your brand and products. However, negative content can do just the opposite, ruining your customers’ perception of your brand and damaging trust. Reply

    How to use keywords wisely? Reply
    • Betsy Mason

      @Wallace Mcbride Just like with app titles, how you should handle app keywords differs from the Apple App Store to Google Play. With Apple, you get only 100 characters for all of your keywords, so obviously, you need to choose wisely; it should go without saying that you should get as close to this 100 character limit as you possibly can. With Google Play, though, there is no specific keyword field. However, the app description is searchable, and you have a comfortable 4000 characters to work with. Reply

      @Wallace Mcbride For the best App Store Optimization, you’ll want to put your most important keywords in your description five times. However, be careful not to overdo it – keyword stuffing will get your app penalized (just like keyword stuffing on a website would get your site penalized by Google), leading to a drop in your ranking. There’s a fine line between optimizing your app description, and stuffing it with keywords – the key is to make sure it reads well and makes sense for a person reading it, not just for the App Store algorithm!

      @Garry Lloyd Similar to Apple App Store search guides, you must put your main keywords in the title of your Google Play Store app. This will increase your Android app's chances to rank better for those targeted keywords. According to MobileDevHQ, app titles that have keywords in them have 10.3% higher ranking than those that don't. Reply

    How to choose the app name? Reply
    • Saul Warner

      @Phyllis Bowman The iOS app name can be up to 255 characters long, while the Android store has a minimum of 8 characters for the app name, and App Store only has one chance to change the app name, so it is important to choose a good app name. The most important thing is that nowadays smartphone users, the main downloaders, will only focus on the first 25 characters, so this part of the name title is very important. Do a thorough research on your competitors' target keywords and try to include them in the app title as well. Avoid using any special characters in the app name and make sure that the app name you choose is not too similar to the name of an existing app, as that will only bring more competition. Reply

    How do you make an app go viral? Reply
    • Tiffany Jones

      @Carrie Rios A viral app is the highest achievement on iTunes and Google Play. It’s an app that customers eagerly share across the Internet, through social networks, email, chat and word of mouth. It’s like rocket fuel, and it is the best case scenario for an app developer because word of mouth is far more powerful than any paid advertising.

      @Karla Allison Millions of apps, on many points, quite an alike one another. Popular mobile apps today are indeed born out of some need. Some cater to the need of doing video calls, others enable its users to instantly share a location they find. Therefore, if you touch a point in people’s lives that satisfy their curiosity or make their lives easier, you may fill a big gap with your mobile app. If you want your app to be popular, you can work on things people need.
