Mistakes When Marketing A Mobile App

Posted In Business, Mobile App Development - By Techtiplib on Wednesday, June 18th, 2014 With No Comments »

There are various things that can go wrong when you try to promote a mobile app. Most people believe that this is simple but the exact opposite is correct. Because of the fact that the number of mobile users is currently on the rise, a huge number of apps are being developed as you read these lines. In order to be successful, you need to make sure that you do a good job as your competition will most likely not make the mistakes we highlight below. The hard truth is that you can even work with great companies like in order to launch a perfect app and still fail as you cannot market it properly. With this in mind, here are some mistakes that you need to avoid at all costs.

Marketing A Mobile App

Not Understanding What Your Target Audience Is

This is definitely the worst marketing mistake that anyone can make. If the target audience is not properly identified, it is a guarantee that your mobile app will not be able to satisfy a need or a person wish that the user may have. This guarantees a lack of success. You need to make sure that you use the proper marketing channels and that all your advertising reaches the people that would actually find real value in the app you are promoting.

Not Taking Advantage Of Social Networks

We see many different managers out there that stay focused on buying ads and promoting with the lack of a social media channel. This is a huge mistake and you should never make it. Unfortunately, when you do not take advantage of social networks, you miss out on so much free advertising. You also have access to honest feedback from users without having to invest money in support. People will tell you exactly what their problems are and you can solve them so that the app is even more attractive to them.

Not Knowing When To Drop The Price

Many marketers see that the competition charges an amount and will want to match it. That actually rarely works, unless your mobile app is a lot better than the other one. If it is around the same in terms of what it offers, you need to stay focused on making price modifications. Drop the price tag in the beginning so that you can create some buzz and also while you promote in the event you do not have the response you thought you would have.

Not Creating Business Partnerships

While this is not necessarily a huge marketing mistake, it is one that will hurt your profits. There are so many opportunities available when promoting a mobile up. Strategic business partnerships can so easily be used at the moment since we all need to help each other in making more money. That is especially true in the mobile apps department since there are so many similar apps to the one that you are about to market. Look for some great options that are available for you and choose the best ones to promote your app in a partnership.
