Hi Majbahul Islam
If you don’t have ad budget and you consider yourself as newbie at publishing I advice you to make a good app store optimization first.

There are few simple steps only for a good start.
- You should no over-use keywords in your app name
- Icon and logo should be rememberable, and associated with your products/services.
- Make good description for each screenshot
- Make short demo of your app. (30s video)

Also don’t forget to create app’s social media pages and manage GP reviews.

The best tools that will help you with ASO:
ASOdesk - very convenietnt to manage your Google Play positions, many useful competitors insights;
AppFollow - collects and analyze store feedbacks;
MixPanel - many useful metrics. Retention rate, conversion funnels, etc.

I'm new on this forum, but feel free to ask me if you will have google play optimization questions.
Have a nice day!

Hi Majbahul Islam,

As you said uploading an app on Play store is not enough to make your app popular on play store. You need to opt for ASO - App Store Optimization. Which includes the techniques that can help you to make your app popular among your audience and can get you as many downloads as it can.

Here are a few points that you can use:

  1. Keyword Research - Perform keyword research using sensor tower, or app annie which will help you to decide which keywords you need to target for getting maximum installs for your app.

  2. Add Good Title and Describe your app in an engaging manner. and select an appropriate category for your app.

  3. Add a great looking logo and screen shots of your app (if possible try to add a good video too.)

  4. Make sure you have some valuable ratings and reviews for your app on play store.

Hope this helps. :)

You need installs from users. You can reach your users on the forums, with ads, with social networks. It is up to you, what you like the most

I think Facebook ads are great way to reach more people in less time.
