It is certain that app marketing is not just advertising, even though our core business is to offer app advertising solutions. All of us know how it is hard to create a reliable app. It requires laytime, effort, patience, and heart on the table.

Now, it is time to promote your app. We dig the internet and explore the top 100 app promotion websites just for you to promote your app!

 

Let’s get it started.

App Directories

One of the places you can promote your app is app directories. If you are satisfied with your app or if you want to collect feedback for your app in beta, submitting to app directories is really useful. They could bring you, new users, raise your brand awareness, get links and let you gain inspiration on the basis of feedbacks.

You need to create a page for listing yourself as local or global in social platforms even if you are a virtual company. These pages let you be active where your potential customers are and reach more users.

App Stores

There are two main app stores which are Google Play and iOS App Store. However, it would be on behalf of your app to benefit from alternative app stores. I compiled app store I listed below from Moby Affiliates and Sixteen Ventures.

For Android Apps

Beside Google Play which is the main Android store, there are lots of choices you can upload your Android app.

GetJar: It has more than 2 billion apps and 395,000 developers. Founded in 2004, it claims to reach over 200 million app users.

Itch.io: It is free and paid-for indie game stores.

Online Communities

As well as creating a page in social channels, it is beneficial to join and create online communities. It is time to listen to pains and solve them. It is a good way to demonstrate you are here for problem-solving, not to spam.

LinkedIn Groups
Facebook Groups
Reddit: It offers the latest digital trends and news by gathering individuals and communities in the same zone.
Quora: It is an interactive platform that you can ask and answer any question, publish a post, ask specific person anything. That is, you can create your own community.
Forums: Search for forums related to your business and try to be active

After joining them, your next responsibility is to be active. Actively answer questions and engage with others. If you just promote your app, you couldn’t make a good impression. Therefore, you can give links to your app as well as talk about daily things and give advice about things not related to your app.

Options are not limited to the above ones I have listed. You can increase them by making a simple search on Google like “app directories”, “review sites for apps” etc. Just remember that your job will never finish. Developing, promoting, updating, promoting, promoting…

Good luck with your app!
