Using social media to advertise your mobile app is an excellent way to reach thousands of new customers, but it is essential that you make the most of it, so here are some tips and ideas to help you promote your mobile app in the most popular social media networks:
- Work hard on the content of your posts
It is not sufficient to simply post about your mobile app on the different social media networks because posts like yours are being posted all the time, and it is very likely that yours will be lost among others. This is why you should take the time to plan and create posts which are of highest quality, creative and unique. They should be able to not only reach your potential customers but also attract and keep their attention while they are sliding through their social media timelines. Make sure that you post fun and informative posts which are related to the type of mobile app you are promoting. You can do that by creating interesting posts with short but awesome videos and pictures describing the benefits and features of your product. You can post the video on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.
- Do some planning
Planning your social media marketing campaign is essential if you want it to be successful. You need to carefully plan your strategy, the posts and contents you want to communicate to your target audience as well as the most suitable social media networks and channels to use for promoting your mobile app.
- Users like to be rewarded
It is advisable that you think about ways to reinforce and reward users for actually downloading your mobile app, as well as for sharing information about it to their friends, followers and other related parties. Think about ways to offer a referral or reward system of some kind and you will see how the number of downloads will grow as the popularity of your application grows.
- Keep your posts and content human
Users of social networks tend to pay more attention to posts which have a humanized tone rather than a commercially tailored one. Remember to ask users for feedback and always try to answer any of their comments or questions they post.
- Use images
In many cases a single picture can say a lot more than a post of 100 or more words, so make sure that you invest time and resources for providing your potential customers with images which will attract their attention and will want to click on your link and download your mobile app.
