The Record Article: Standing Out Is the Challenge for App Developers

The KW Record, hometown of RIM and our very own Tom Emrich, featured App Promo after meeting with us at BlackBerry DevCon Americas where we were sponsors and speakers.

A snippet:

“SAN FRANCISCO – It should come as no surprise that there is a healthy dose of Canadian content among the companies displaying their wares at Research In Motion’s huge developer conference here.

After all, RIM is based in Waterloo and does a lot of its business in Canada.

Of the dozen or so companies with display booths in the conference’s Mobility Pavilion, three are from the Toronto area – Polar Mobile, the New Toronto Group and App-Promo.

Helping mobile apps developers market their creations on the BlackBerry, iPhone and Android smartphones is the job of App-Promo.”

BlackBerry® DevCon Americas Sponsor, App-Promo, equips developers with app marketing & promotion tools to solve the problem of app discovery at this year’s conference

San Francisco, California (PRWEB) October 17, 2011

App owners need to look for opportunities to actively market their application in order to see success,” explains Gary Yentin, CEO and Founder of App-Promo. “We are finding that not everyone can afford a full fledged marketing campaign which is why we developed the App-Promo app making marketing tools more accessible to the developer community.”.

The app presents marketing information in various forms for the reader from daily tips parceled up like “marketing vitamins” sure to quickly boost app activity to real-life case studies of app’s that have seen success with marketing.

[PRESS RELEASE] App-Promo, a leading mobile app marketing firm, gives one lucky app owner the chance to win $5000 in app marketing services

Facebook page contest is just one of the ways App-Promo is making marketing more accessible to small business app owners

Toronto, Ontario, Canada (PRWEB) September 28, 2011

App-Promo, a full-service mobile app marketing and PR firm based in Toronto, Ontario, launched a contest on their Facebook page today to give $5000 in app marketing services to one lucky winner. Entrants need only give their name, email address, app name and URL to enter. One winner will be drawn when the contest ends October 31, 2011.

As part of the marketing package giveaway, App-Promo will work with the winner to understand the app: it’s purpose, differentiator and objectives, to create a custom campaign designed to maximize results and help the app succeed.

App-Promo will utilize marketing tactics that have proven them success in past campaigns. A marketing campaign consisting of PR & blogger outreach, product page optimization and use of third party app stores and search engines are among the strategies that will be employed for the winner to increase downloads for the app.

“This contest is especially helpful for small business developers and app owners who understand the value in marketing their application but don’t have the budget or bandwith to really push the needle,” says Gary Yentin, CEO and Founder of App-Promo. “We are excited to be able to give this opportunity to an app that could be the next Angry Birds or Talking Tom but just doesn’t have the knowledge or time to make it happen.”

The contest is just one element of a campaign aimed to make app marketing and promotions accessible to the developer and app owner community at large. App-Promo recently launched their new application, the App-Promo app, a content-based application with resources to learn how to market and promote an application. The app is available now via the Android Market, BlackBerry App World or Nokia Ovi store for a promotional price of $6.99. The iPhone version of the app is expected to launch later this Fall.

To enter the contest or review the rules and regulations, go to the App-Promo Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/apppromo) and click on the “$5000 Contest” tab. The App-Promo application can be easily downloaded on Android, BlackBerry or Nokia devices from their platform stores or by visiting http://www.app-promo.com/mobile-app.

This promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, Facebook.
