- Create an app and distribute it
The following distribution methods will help you maximize the distribution of your Android app.
App market distribution
This is the obvious place to distribute your Android app. This is the first place you would consider searching for an app, so therefore it would be the first place in which you would consider distributing your app. However, this is not as straight forward as you may think because there are numerous Android app markets out there. How do you know which app market is suitable for your Android app? Android app markets do not start and end with GooglePlay. GooglePlay is, of course, the most dominant of all app stores for the Android market, and we do encourage distribution to this market. However, it should not be your first port of call. We suggest that you start with smaller stores first, including stores such as Amazon Appstore. Another point to take note of is that to create a name for yourself, you need to have numerous apps ready for distribution in your given app store. This will help app users trust your brand. and thus result in higher download levels.
Email became a strong marketing tool with the rise of the Internet. This is a tool that has not, and we believe will not, lose momentum. Email remains a strong communicative tool, and therefore is a vital part of any marketing strategy. Email marketing will enable you to target a mobile audience and get your app directly into the hands of people who already have their mobile devices open and are ready to click. AppsGeyser provides app makers with a QR code for each individual app as well as a link. These can be used in email marketing, either as direct links, or as a downloadable file.
It is rare to find an app maker that does not already have an online presence, either via their current website or social media profiles. All the online sites you own can be used to distribute your app code. Many of our app makers also use partner sites to distribute the app for them in a form of app share, where you share their app and they share your app to grow audience numbers.
Time to not only create an app – it is time to get serious and get distributing.
