AppsGeyser is happy to present you with free app making tools for your app, but many of you say that app making is not free because it costs so much to distribute your app. That is not actually true, there are many free ways that you can create apps and get your apps out there in the public sphere.
The difficult part of Android app making is distributing your app, the worry that noone will download the app that you have all your dreams set upon. Don’t worry, marketing your app is not as difficult as you may think. the correct way is easy and it is also free. We have five tips for you to use to help get your app seen.
Organic searches means having good ASO
ASO means App Store Optimization. There are a number of techniques you can use to ensure your app will stand out in an app store. What you need to consider when optimizing your app is your app name, your app description, your brand’s logo and the screen shots of your app. The three points mentioned will help your app rank higher against other apps when searched for. Once your app is live in the app store, and you want to keep it high in the app store search results, it is important that the app is updated regularly and you get feedback on the app. More details are available on our blog if you click here.
Alternate app store
The Android app market is not static like the Apple store. There are many different app stores that you can and should be using to upload your app to. One of the most frequently used alternate app stores is the Amazon app store. Amazon is arguably better than Google Play if you intend to charge a fee to download your app as users already have a credit card attached to their account and downloads are easier. For more information on alternate app stores please see our app store blog post.
Nothing will promote your app better than your own app network. Internal advertising is not only cost effective it also builds trust in your brand. Users are more confident downloading an app from a brand that has multiple apps and are more likely to download a second and third app from the same app maker. App networks are usually built to help promote a main app that may be your premium app. An app network uses the same techniques as upselling, once you have your customer it is time to push the next item. Have you ever been offered a muffin with your coffee? That is simply upselling techniques in action. Read more about app networking here.

This is one of those networking ideas. If you get out and about, people will begin to recognize you and trust you. Once you are confident with your app you should get your app reviewed by popular Android app bloggers. Not only does this get your app name publicized but you are getting many positive reviews this can and almost certainly will pass through social media like wildfire. Another important reason to get reviews is for your personal learning curve. Reviews will pick up on slight issues that you may need to address. Here are our favorite app review sites.
