Mobile applications (aka mobile app) have became more and more popular since the iPhone was born. Now everyone may choose to develop a famous mobile app to earn money. However, although the process of the application development is important, the sale is really critical to your success. The ideal way to sell your mobile app is following these popular three steps: building a website, introducing to your friends, and popularizing to the public.
First, you must construct your cool website for your mobile app if you would like to have a great beginning. A nice internet portal is like a pretty face of a human being, so your customers will feel comfortable when they visit your website to download your application. To build a great website, you need to devise at least one web page very well if you have very little time to do that. For example, a popular mobile app called Instagram has a simple but convenient front web page. There is a big smart phone photo on the left, a brief description on the right, and a rectangular black download button on the bottom. New visitors can directly know the functions of the application and where to get it. Shortly, a pretty website of your app is just like the fashion clothes which will make your fans feel enjoyable.
Next, you could tell your friends about your amazing app so that you might receive some useful feedback and improve it. You may send your website’s link to your buddies by e-mail or message because you will have already had the website after the first step. This is a necessary step because only the people who know you much may have interests to install the application developed by you. For instance, Philonis is one of my good friends. Also he will always be my first user to try my fresh work. After experiencing it, he usually points out something not good to me such as the ugly icon, the sudden launch without a loading screen, and so on. Then, I’ll modify my application and resend it to him, and he will give me other suggestions if there is still something he doesn’t like. That is to say, it is always good that you try to validate your ideas or works before pushing them to more people.
Finally, you can show your mobile app to the public. There are many methods for you to pick up: making advertisements, sharing through Facebook or Twitter, and sending your website’s link to more people as invitation. There is a successful game using invite links to grow its users. A person who wants to play this game must invite a friend to join him/her. Consequently, his/her friend will play this game soon. In addition, his/her friend will invite another friend to play with him/her. Moreover, he/she will get some bonus points if he/she invites others to play this game. Quickly, the number of users in this game increases faster and faster, and of course the company who made this game is the winner. For another example, a music application can send the information of the music that you are listening to to Facebook or Twitter automatically. Your friends of Facebook or Twitter will follow the information sent by you to install the music application. That is another way to broadcast your work. If you have already made it, now you can wait for the money coming to you.
It will be truly effective if you follow these steps above. Making mobile applications is fun, and so is selling. Bad sales means wasting time to develop the applications. Wish you good luck!
