What I'm curious to know is a personal experience from anyone(indie especially) who succeeded in having his app or game reviewed by the big review sites like AndroidPit, AndroidCentral etc.

They might vicky if you have an excellent game which has to be new and a new concept, an indigenous game for instance Angry birds. If you have a game like that I am sure your game will be reviewed.

Here are the 5 tips:

  1. Blogging on Sites: Be generic and precise, but don't forget to add your link in that blog, ask your friends to reply to that blog eventually it may reach many.

  2. Social Networking: This is very easy and the most influencing way to market. Post your Games, Apps and even blogs (promotional materials) you have created and Videos if any, about your game. But be cautioned do not spam in social media else you may get blocked.

  3. Forum Posting: One of the organic and traditional marketing is forum posting. Post your promotional materials in forums and discussions. Again do not spam in the forum as it may irritate the users and may lead to negative review.

  4. Video Marketing: Create a video about your App or Game and make a Youtube channel. Promoting this video creates a vision within users and may last long within them.

  5. Review Sites: It is also important for others to review your game. The review sites will be best suiting for reviewing your game, there are both free and paid reviews. Choose paid reviewing if you want the same.

There are nearly 500 websites which includes forum, paid and free review website which would be useful in marketing your Apps or Games.

Try these tips well and be careful by not overdoing stuff.

I am Binh. I come from Vietnam. I'm developing some of its applications. This is my application. http://www.androidpit.com/developer/6738051/keokafe01

Can you give me advice to develop them? Thank you for this useful article. I wish you health and success

Hello Binh

Sorry for the late reply, I saw your apps which are fundamentally good and it colorful to encourage kids. Consider these points below.

  1. Consider changing your descriptions, write the description with keywords (but the keyword should be repeated min 3 times but not more than 5 times).
  2. Frequently update your apps atleast once in 2 months.
  3. If possible run an admob campaign.
  4. If you can tweak on the designs elements it would be great.
  5. Once these are completed try my other tips and let me know how it is performing.

Please PM me if you need anything. Thanks again

Dear dev, I know you are struggling to make your app more visible as the competition is more and more tough. So, as you probably already know, there is more out there then just Google’s Play store and that is how my quest for finding the best and most profitable android alternative markets began!

I have a portfolio of 40 alternative app stores where you can publish your app/apps.

Also, you should know that having your app published on many app stores has the following advantages:

  • Potentially higher download numbers;

  • Google Play Store search algorithm is influenced by the popularity of an app which is also given by the number of unique links (from alternative stores) to your specific app on Google search engine;

  • Higher downloads lead to higher revenue for you;

  • My list includes alternative markets from all over the world, especially emerging markets like Brazil, Spain, India, Russia, Indonesia, USA etc.;

  • On alternative markets it’s easier to reach the top sections (Like most downloaded apps, best new apps, best rated apps etc.);
    It's about maximizing exposure, so your app will be viewed, and hopefully downloaded, by more users.

If this sounds good to you just contact me

HI Karthick

I have developed couple of apps and published in the playstore, I am in final year B.Tech CSE and been doing this android programming out of passion for nearly year and half and been able to generate 10k INR a month.

Now I have just published an app called starvue and integrated with themoviedatabse (tmdb) api site, it has all the info on popular/upcoming movies as well as the old one even from 1950s, and also the TV shows. I am using parse online server to save the data. As per me this was a huge project (as a student) and took me 6 months to complete and totally bugfree now. I would like you to review the same.

Now I am seriously thinking of promoting this all over, and starting facebook / google advertising, I would appreciate if you can send me the list of 500 sites which would really help me in my promotion

regards

anirudh

PS : I am unable to PM you, please PM me the sites whenever you get time, thanks in advance
