If you want your app to success then you need people to download it and they can only do that if you put it up for distribution. Did you know that there are more ways to distribute your app that just uploading to GooglePlay? We have previously seen that you can use banner ads and video ads on other platforms to help market your app but there are more ideas for you to utilize. Today we are looking at alternate app distribution methods.
The traditional approach – App markets
This is how most people think they have to distribute their apps, and to be honest, there is nothing wrong with the traditional approach to app distribution. Most app makers will simply place their apps in an Android app market and hope that their app will begin show through organic app searches. However, if this is your only method of app distribution then you are missing out on a large chunk of your potential audience. If your ASO isn’t perfect you will find organic searches difficult, but this app distribution approach can succeed and to help we suggest that you ensure that not only do you have a minimum of 7 apps available but to also place your app in numerous app stores and not just one.
AppsGeyser gives all app makers a QR code for every app made in addition to the APK and app link. These are three wonderful tools that you can utilize by sending these attachments in emails to your existing client base. You can use a marketing company that is free, such as MailChimp to create a newsletter that contains the code that allows the users to click on it and download the app.
If you have an existing business website, or a blog then you can use this to distribute your app code. You can ask other websites to add your code for you just like people do link swaps to help aide their SEO, you can do app distribution code swaps too. Some websites will automatically send the app download to the users device if they are accessing the code via an Android powered device.
And don’t forget alternative advertising method that we have discussed too….
