Hello Karthick,

Thanks for the useful post.

I'm interested in your marketing services, please send me pm. I tried to send you pm but did not go trought because I'm a new AndroidPit user.

From my experience:
- How app is listed in the store is important and makes the difference.
I made wrong descriptions and downloads decreased for weeks.
- Translation in many languages can help.
Russian and Portuguese, i.e.can give some extra download
- Patience is a must
Sometimes I feel that Google Play limits downloads, I have apps that have almost the same amount of new users everyday.
i.e. an app with 12.000 downloads always gives me 100 new user per day, another with 2.500 downloads gives 20 to 25 per day.

Note that app exchange is risky:
-Google notice if you have too many reviews
-Exchanging downloads increases number of new users, but most of time same users will uninstall app asap. Having a bad installs/uninstalls rate kills your visibility so the effect would be the opposite than you hope.

Also, AndroidPIT is a great alternative store that can help you, but also consider publishing app on 1Mobile so app can be visible in many countries where Google does not work or is not so popular.

You can promote your app in forums and Q/A sites. This will surely bring traffic to your site.

Try AAP - Android App Promotion app on playstore as they provide free download exchange services where you download an app and your app gets downloaded in return .You can see the results in daily reports and take appropriate measure while doing so .

(Admin edit: You are not allowed to promote your application over here)

One other good way is to post it to sites like Reddit.

The Google Play algorithm is quite unknown and there is no special formula to bring it in the front. If you want non paid promotions here are some ideas from my side

  • Write blogs and post it in blogging sites.
  • Forum Uploads (but dont dump the link in forums it might create an irritation to the users)
  • Social Media Optimization, I mean ask your friends to review and ask your friends to tell their friends.
  • Dont pay for reviewing your app in Google Play it might result in suspension of the account (Google Play Developer Policy)
  • App Videos, make a channel in youtube and promote with this video and make screeshots
  • There are 500 sites which includes Review Sites, Forum etc... If you upload your game in all these sites you can increase your ranking position. Keep an eye on the Top Free and Top New Free of your category.

I am a freelance marketing professional, should you require any promotional activities for your app let me know.

Thanks.
But I found it quite useless for asking some website to review.

Hello,

If you have published your app just before 1 day, It will not visible or not be in your search result. Google will take 48 to 72 hours for visible on store.

You can follow this to promote your app :

1) Have a catchy Title that stands out from the rest. (Blog post)

2) Create an attractive (Sexy) icon that stands out from the rest. (Article 1) (Article 2)

3) Use relevant keyword to describe your app on the App Store. (ASO Tool)

4) App Size – Reducing the app size allows users on 3G to download with ease. (>50mb)

5) Reviews – Encourage users to review your app, as higher rating attracts users.

6) Free Apps – Attract more users compared to paid apps.

7) Promo Codes – If you have a paid app give away promo codes so users can try it out and tell their friends.

8) Submit your application to various app directories such as Appolocious.

9) Promote your app with a Facebook Page.

10) Promote your app with a Twitter Profile.

Thanks,

facebook is a great start post it on your wall ask your friends to do the same, create a facebook page for the app have friends "like" it then when there friends go on facebook they will see what pages friends have liked and this will help promote your app another way to do this is to create a QR code lots of sites out there do this just make one for it send it to everyone on your phone, if you have some funds make stickers of the bar code and just stick them in random places i no when i see a QR code i scan it just for shits and giggles
