any app marketing agency?

Did anyone cooperate with any app marketing agency? It's so difficult to handle all the app marketing when it turns to a unfamiliar market. Any recommendation?

I've never used them personally but I've heard some good things about iSpreadNews and Essential App Marketing. If you're looking for cheaper options, you can look at PRMac

don't bother

All PRMac or iSpreadnews or such do is basically spam review sites and journalists with your press-release. It's cheap, but it doesn't work, at least it doesn't work good enough.

If you want to work with agency, you could consider guys like Appency, TriplePointPR or Appular. But those cost a lot, and they can not guarantee you commercial success - only effort.

So I guess simple choice is looking for a publisher - at least that's what I decided for myself when faced with similar choice.

prMac

I would recommend to use only basic prMac service (not paid services) because as mentioned earlier it is mostly spam to review sites. On the other hand it helps you with link building, some sites automatically publish your press release with link to your site.

I am currently discussing cooperation with Appency and Appular who both have good track record and so far look professional.

Hi Alan,

The services your company offers look interesting I also like the tips you gave away in your Top Ten Tips Booklet, good stuff.

I don't know if you can tell me, but I'll ask anyway: how many registered journalists / media account do you guys have?

We are a few months away of releasing our first game, and will most likely contact you when we are about to start promoting it.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Jonas,

No worries Always happy to help.

We currently have around 500 journalists registered on the site. We have a newsletter that goes out weekly to them which includes noteworthy apps and industry news.

We only officially launched in July and have seen the site grow very quickly and are looking at doing a big push to get more media signed up over the next few weeks.

Would love to get involved with marketing your app so keep in touch and let me know if there's anything we can do to help.

Kind regards,
Alan

p.s. easier to get me on email alan@appromoter.com or skype alanappromoter
