Mofluid develops the most popular Magento Mobile App extension and put together this advice on marketing your mobile application. Before you ever even begin designing and developing your mobile app, there's a lot of work that needs done to ensure it's marketing success:
- Before Mobile App Launch – choose a great name, identify your competitors, set your category, create an amazing logo, take great screenshots, write a good title, description and keywords, and build a great landing page
- After Mobile App Launch – push for as many downloads as you can in the immediate days after launch, sign up and track your app's performance using mobile app store analytics, get featured on review sites, and encourage users to share on social media and review your app.
I'd also add to promote your application everywhere you can – from your website to your email signatures!
