Who doesn’t love to dig their hands into a bucket of free goodies? If everything were free, everyone would have a bucket of their own. Mobile apps deserve their own time in the spotlight, but it’s rare that you find a professional application that is more than a trial-offer or filled with lousy advertisements for a similar app from affiliate companies. However, good or bad, people are easily influenced by the word “free” and will often download it on the spot, at least for a quick-peak. In these moments, new business owners have a chance to solidify their grasp on the audience and start profiting in all the ways they have been planning.
With this information, it’s easy to assume that plenty of businesses have launched their own free apps and thus, you will have a decent amount of competition. Every niche will have one that is slightly more complex or a little more preferred; especially when competing with larger companies. This requires a business owner to branch away from their traditional route and consider finding a group of apps that have not yet been tapped for consumers. Research and close attention to trending events or media often allows the tech-savvy businessman to make their fair share of the pie.
Learning to find a market is one thing, but integrating your ideas and advertisements with a unique style of applications is a much tougher task. This is not at all like traditional computer campaigns, where you are awarded large areas or intensive videos to captivate the viewers. Instead, you are given a few seconds, a small screen and one shot to pull in the right person.
Pulling in the right person within the mobile community requires an extremely captivating square of pixels. Your best bet is to find a professional artist, one that has experience with low resolution and unique styles. If this isn’t an option, you can always grab a simple program and learn to do it yourself. It’s really a hit or miss game in this medium, because many people are quick to react and either take it or leave it immediately.
Promoting the individual application, which promotes the business or logo isn’t really tough at all. The best chance you’ll have is inclusion of the keyword “Free” and lucky placement within your preferred markets. Trying to stick with specific devices or service providers is usually a bad idea, so stretch your legs and reach all people possible.
Applications on compact devices are great for generating crowds for lower prices and fewer work-hours from you or the team. You can build a fancy banner to place on top of a friend’s application and receive the same amount of exposure, perhaps sharing profits and allowing one another to benefit from the relationship. There isn’t much else you can do to pull in more customers, just learn to control the situation, the tools, and the people involved. If you learn to educate yourself on the specifics and apply them in the best manners, you’ll always run the best empire.
