3 Simple Steps to Marketing Your Mobile App | Get More Exposure and Installs!


– Marketing a website’s easy. You do some SEO, you do
some content marketing, maybe even some social media marketing, and boom, you’re popular. But what happens if you have a mobile app? How do you market it? Hey, everyone, I’m Neil Patel, and today I’m gonna share with you how to market your mobile app. (bright music) Well, first off, if you
have a mobile app, great. You can start marketing
it, and I’ll show you how. But if you don’t have a mobile app and you’re just thinking about making one and you’re curious on how to market it, well, first start off with BuildFire. BuildFire is a quick and easy way where you can build a app
without being a developer, and it doesn’t cost a arm and a leg. So now that we got that out of the way, hopefully you have a mobile app by now. The first thing you wanna do when it comes to marketing
your app is create press. If you’re too lazy and you don’t wanna
create press on your own, go check out, what’s the site?
(fingers snapping) David, what’s the site? prserve.com David’s slow. All right, so the site is prserve.com. It’s founded by a guy named Chris Barrett. And Chris Barrett does
performance-based press in which you gets you press, you pay. If he doesn’t get you
press, you shouldn’t pay. Funny enough, that’s how all PR should be. I don’t know why these
companies are trying to charge $10,000,
$20,000 monthly retainers when they’re not guaranteeing any press. All right, so you can use a service or a company like PRServe. If you wanna do it on your own, go check out who’s covering
apps within your space. If have a beauty app, then, all right, go check
out all the beauty bloggers. Go give ’em the app for free. And don’t just give it to ’em for free when everyone else is getting it for free, but you wanna give it to ’em before you launch it to the public. By giving ’em early access,
they’re gonna be like, “Oh my God, I love you, Neil. “This app’s amazing.” And then they’re gonna cover
it, they’re gonna feel special. And then when everyone starts covering it, then you’re gonna get some
awesome press and some signups. Number two, what you
wanna do is get coverage in the blogosphere. Now, this doesn’t have
to just be like press where someone’s covering it saying, “Oh, the Neil Patel app just launched.” It could just be someone
talking about marketing, assuming you have a marketing app, and they include you
within that blog spot. So what I do is I go reach
out to all the bloggers who have already written articles that are related to my app. The third thing you wanna
do, and I hate to say this, is spend money on advertising. You can get a ton of
traffic from Facebook ads for your app installs. You can also go to other people out there who already have apps and
buy ad space from them. You probably have some
games on your phone. What do you see when
you’re playing these games? Every once in awhile it’ll
be like, oh, pause, ad break, and there’ll be an ad for another app. That’s when you can get your app in there. It’s dirt cheap. You can do this in quantity, and that’ll also help you
drive a lot of installs. Follow those three things, you’ll get a lot more app
installs, and you’ll be popular, and hopefully your app monetizes so that way you can make money. Once you have people in your app, then you can start
doings like the virality, in which you can do invite flows, give people bonuses
and points for sharing, rating, reviewing your app, which will all help with more
installs in the long run. But if you have no one
coming into your app, those viral loops won’t work. (bright music)
