The #1 Way to Fail at Mobile Apps Business

We all want our mobile apps and games to succeed. I know I always want mine to be a success.

There has been one very obvious reason for almost all of my failed mobile games.

And that reason is...



 Lack of Marketing!

There was an article I read recently about how to succeed this year in the mobile apps space, and the focus of the article was users.

Read users feedback, see what users want, are there users for the app that you're about to make? These are great pointers to ensure your app is a success.

But if you don't reach out and tell users that your app is out there, you will never have users.

The app markets have reached a certain level of maturity, an equilibrium perhaps? The chances of a new app making it is very much slimmer now. Not impossible, just much tougher than it was back then.

Look out for marketing your apps. There are a bunch of promotion channels available for us, give them a go.

Or reach out to your contact at your favorite mobile ads network and get some advice or feedback from them. These folks know the mobile ads space and that's a great marketing vehicle.

Good luck!
Bill

Airpush Review - Where is the Promised CPM?

Hi all! How are you doing? Pretty tensed episode here on Airpush, and my opinion to the fact that they aren't playing fair to their developers.

And if you are not, and you are planning to use it, what is attracting you to it?

Do you know the importance of the first 30 days on Google Play?

When releasing a new app, it is understood that it will rank far down the food chain. After all, your app is new and unproven just yet.

What Google has done on the Play store is that they have given new app an opportunity to live, a chance to get to a more respectable place in the world of the unknown, the Google Play ranking algorithm.

Which mobile advertising network should I use?

When it comes to monetising apps on the Android platform, mobile ads is one of the better options (IAP is probably the other alternative which is doing real good now).

A little while back, someone asked me what networks I use. Now, this is a list of networks I use. Not in all my apps though. And my ad network usage changes from time to time. So the following are just my choices, you MUST try out what works for you, as mileage really differs from developer to developer, and from app to app.


Preffered mobile advertising networks
The following are my preffered networks, and those that I would be implementing in my apps going forward (performance pending of course).

AppFloodUPDATE: I've dropped AppFlood till the issue here is sorted out.

AppFlood is really an awesome network. 100% of revenue goes to developers. The best payout system (net-anything, seriously!). Innovative ad formats, and a huge selection of ads make up only some of their good points. Their transparency on ads is aweso…
