Don’t be influenced by Influencer Marketing

Influencer Marketing can be a great benefit to your app marketing plan but can also be a bigger liability. Before jumping, it is important to understand the value of influencer marketing and going big does not mean you will get better results.  The costs associated of getting a influencer with a large following (i.e. Kim Kardashian) does not mean you will be great results if your application is not authentic with the influencer and their following.  Micro Influencers (with smaller followings) can be a more effective strategy if their audiences are more closely aligned to your application and your brand.

TIP: Social Networks Need Marketing Too!

Social networks like Facebook are powerful marketing tools which can provide you with great insight into who your audience is and help market your app through social reach. But just like your app it isn’t a “build it and they will come” situation. You need to let people know! Your marketing efforts should include a strategy to increase your following. Highlight your social networks in your marketing collateral, your website, on your app app page and even in your app.

TIP: Retweetability is Key When Creating Tweets

When constructing a tweet make sure you consider two things: maximum readability and maximum tweetability. Twitter users are bombarded with a stream of tweets so make sure your tweet is clear and can be understood in seconds. Keep your character count even less than the 140 max so that you leave enough room to allow for retweeting without destroying your original message.

TIP: Master the Art of Headlines for Effective Tweeting

Before you tweet ask yourself if your message is meaningful. It should add value to the community that you are building. Master the art of headlines. As Tweets are only 140 characters, you need to tease your readers with enough information to be interested and then provide them with a link to find out more.  Check your links though before you use them – the worst thing you can do is send your users to a 404 page.

TIP: Make Your Marketing Campaign an Official “Event” on Facebook

Use the “Events” feature on your Facebook page to create anticipation for an upcoming release or app marketing campaign. This is a great way to gain some momentum. As your followers RSVP to your event, their response will also be shown on their wall which will give additional exposure to both your app and your event.

TIP: Social Media Success Needs You

The most important thing to remember when creating and cultivating a social network is to be yourself and not a corporation. Your audience wants to be part of a community and connect to a real person. Be sure to let your personality through your posts and responses. And don’t be afraid to let your audience know who they are speaking to.
