Developing an app for your ecommerce business is a superb way to level up.

Apps create a direct means of communication between your brand, its products and your customers. Apps allow you to diversify your ecommerce platforms and sell through a personalised medium.

After developing an app, you might be wondering how to market it to the world.

There are a lot of apps out there - over 5 million according to Statista.

But don’t let that put you off - there’s still tons of room in the app sector and with some well-executed strategies, you can cut through the noise and get your app well and truly out there.

Here are 4 ways to get your app noticed:

#1 ASO - app store optimisation

ASO is the app-store equivalent of SEO and regardless of whether your app is published on Google Play or the Apple App Store, it needs to be properly optimised for those platforms.

Similar to SEO, ASO takes advantage of all the text you can use to describe your app. The aim is to improve your app’s organic ranking and findability.

Everything from the app name to the description needs to be written precisely and evocatively. Describe what your app does, why people need it and how it benefits them and solves their problems.

  • Use keyword analysis tools and Google Trends to find keyword ideas and trending products
  • Use all the available space
  • Break your points own with heading and bullets
  • Incorporate brand messaging if possible

#2 Promote on social media

Social media is the number 1 arena for app promotion. The first step will be to promote your app across your brand’s social profiles (and your own if appropriate).

Social media promotion for an ecommerce app

When you promote your app, share some well-made in-app screenshots and consider adding infographics and other supporting media. Gifs or screen recorded videos work very well too - anything that demonstrates how awesome your app looks!

You can also post your app to Facebook groups that are relevant to your niche.

  • Share on social channels
  • Promote on Facebook groups
  • Take advantage of all promotional channels (e.g. IG Reels, stories, statuses, direct message, etc)
  • Keep visuals sharp and attractive

#3 Create a promo campaign

The best way to get users immediately onto your platform is to offer an incentive.

Introductory promo campaigns are an awesome way to fastrack downloads. The better you can offer, the more interest you’ll get and you’ll also give yourself a chance of ascending the trending charts or even better, going viral.

Flash sales and ultra-low intro prices can get people through the door fast. You could also offer free gifts for every 10th, 100th and 1000th customer, etc. Of course, if you do offer a flash sale or ultra-low price intro sale then make sure you cost everything up properly before launch!

  • Offer incentives to your first downloaders
  • Create a flash sale for the first few days after release
  • Prizes for early customers
  • Offer free gifts or money off future shops for the first 100 downloaders

#4 Provide excellent customer service to secure reviews

Reviews are one of the primary ranking factors for apps and getting some 5-star reviews on the board early on will do wonders for your app’s organic marketing.

Firstly, your app needs to be flawless and secure - that’s partly what makes an excellent option. But you’ll also need to provide first-class customer service. You can also offer incentives to those who leave positive reviews.

  • Build a first-class app
  • Send orders on time
  • Provide excellent customer service
  • Incentivise buyers for positive reviews (e.g 10% off your next shop)
