When you are trying to get your app out onto the market and make an app go viral, meaning shared between friends and then friends of friends and so forth, you need to remember one thing – Time
People love sharing and people love talking about things they love, however, it is a fact that time is also an important factor in deciding whether or not sharing something is worthwhile. Let me explain:
If you want to share something from your mobile phone to your social networks, but you firstly need to load the app link to your PC and then upload it to the social networks, let’s face it, you just won’t bother sharing. If you can just click on a share button and everything is done automatically for you, you are 90% more likely to share something with your friends.
1. Make your app easy to use – If your app is easy to use, your user will spend more time on the app as it is taking no effort from them, this effortless feeling will entice them to share the app because they will feel that it is acceptable to share the app. Sharing something that is hard work to use makes the possible sharer think twice before sharing.
2. Social sign in – Does the app allow users to share direct to their social sites? Having access to social via the app enables the app to access the most important marketing tool to help you grow your business.
3. A quick reminder – When people log into the app, remind them casually to share the app with their friends and state what benefit sharing will give them. You don’t have to give them something if you can’t, you can even say something like this: ‘Let your friends in on the fun by sharing the app today, remember, sharing is caring.’
