Instructions and Help about Will Form 2220 Assets

Have an app idea but zero programming experience and a limited budget you've come to the right place I will tell you the steps I took and the tools I used to create over 20 apps with over 1 million downloads first and foremost get a feel for the market and review the top charts frequently make sure your ideas align with what is successful once you have your app idea ready to go write a brief fixed-rate job post on your favorite outsourcing website I recommend oDesk or Elance due to the ease of use and both have a money-back guarantee so if you have any issues with your freelancer you will get a full refund no questions asked be sure to keep your job post basic to protect your idea until an NDA is signed when reviewing applicants delete anyone with a 1 to 4 star rating if they had issues in the past they will have issues again another way to weed out bad developers is to ask them this single question how long does it take you to integrate a monetization platform like chartboost into an app on average it takes 15 minutes to integrate so delete anyone that says over an hour interview the potential candidates and go from there I have found a huge amount of success hiring developers from India the general consensus is to stay away from developers from China once you have the framework of the app finished you need graphics having eye catching graphics is imperative and gives you the necessary boost you need to stay ahead of the competition you can use oDesk or Elance for this as well but I recommend 99designs it's the best outsourcing website for graphic design you have hundreds of designers bid on your project with a custom design made to your liking and you select the winner it's as easy as that congratulations your app is complete now what App Store optimization a whopping 65% of your app traffic comes from keywords so keyword optimization is crucial word of mouth is second but we'll get into that later Apple allows you to use a maximum of 100 characters per localization to maximize the space be sure to use commas in between words without any spaces when finding keywords look for words that are high in traffic low in competition with ASO remember to think outside the box use synonyms or other ways to say it that people might use and don't hesitate to put keywords into the title as well where can you go to research keywords the three tools I use for ASO are as follows whether it's for an app or a website longtail keyword Pro is heralded as the best by many of the top developers a common error that app publishers make is to only target single word keywords this tool can help that by targeting longtail keywords it can significantly heighten the chance of ranking high because there is far less competition another great tool is sensor tower it's great for finding keywords your competitors are currently using and last but not least there's the app store itself start by typing your keyword into the app store search bar and the most popular searches will appear underneath to give you an idea of what terms to use ran out of keyword space an interesting loophole is that in the Spanish localization any keywords you use in the name and in the keywords section gets indexed in the US store so essentially any keywords that didn't fit in the US localization can be used in the Spanish section so you can leave all of the Spanish keywords for the Mexican Spanish section in the iTunes Connect portal this will maximize your keyword output and improve your overall chance of ranking high also be sure to include eggs act match longtail keywords in the app title this will significantly increase your chance of ranking for particular terms because the title holds more weight and don't forget to localize all of your keywords in different languages to increase your traffic in a major way when it comes to marketing your app having a website does wonders this essentially doubled my traffic by giving me more exposure ranking high in Google searches for key terms is imperative I recommend Bluehost for affordable reliable hosting and it's incredibly easy to use they are by far the gold standard and by easy to use I mean as easy as filling out your name and address you can use a free tumbler or WordPress site instead but be mindful that you are limited to using only certain plugins and you aren't allowed to advertise these reasons alone are exactly why I recommend going with Bluehost you have full control it looks more professional and you can truly call it your own on your website be sure to include all the essentials app name and icon description devices it's available on screenshots which should show the value your app brings contact info and a promotional video which is the quickest way for someone to assess your app you can also include a press kit as well want to create buzz prior to your apps launch a mailing list subscription form will do the trick many people underestimate the power of the mailing list but it's huge let me say that again it's huge it's the best way to communicate with your audience on a more personal level there's just something about receiving an email from somebody that makes it extremely effective at getting a point across or making people take some kind of action I use Aweber for this they are without a doubt the best and my go-to mailing list service for all my websites to improve your apps fanbase it is important to embed viral components within your app your users need to become the marketers remember when I said word-of-mouth is the
