App marketing is a dynamic process. It involves a lot of different disciplines and requires many skills, which evolve and change as you go through the different stages of your app’s growth. No single strategy will cut it, and you always have to look for new methods and tactics to spread the word about your app and grow your audience.

Social media platforms are one of the main channels where you can market your app and acquire audience. There are a plethora of networks, each fundamentally different from the others, having its own characteristics, features, audience and ethics. For instance, you can never use your Twitter posting and engagement tactics in LinkedIn and expect success.

However, what all social media platforms have in common is the difficulty and arduousness of building up an audience. It takes a huge amount of effort to build the right follower base in any of these networks and start engaging the right audience.

A shortcut to social media success is to engage and connect with influencers and leverage their success to guarantee your own. Finding and engaging the right people can help you tap into their vast audience to improve the visibility of your app and brand, and accelerate your social media growth rate as well.

In this post, I will share a few tips on how to find the right people in different social media platforms.

How to develop a successful mobile game

Building a mobile game is very tough, and not necessarily from a technical perspective. 80% of games aren’t even seen by users, and though you might be very fond of your latest mobile game, a reality check might prove that others don’t think likewise. In general two factors define the success of a mobile game:

  • Revenue: Money has the final say in this business. After all, unless you’ve spent hundreds and thousands of man-hours for social and charitable objectives, if the game doesn’t generate revenue, it won’t be able to sustain the continued endeavors of your studio.
  • Lifetime: Only a game that continues to engage users in the long term can be considered a success. A game that falls into the abyss after an initial sharp rise in popularity is not a successful one.

Even a high app store ranking cannot be considered a success factor if it doesn’t generate results in terms of the abovementioned metrics.

So how do you make sure your hard work and efforts actually generate the satisfactory results you desire? In this post I will share tips for developers to improve the chances of success for your mobile game. There are several caveats to good mobile game programming, especially if you have a background in programming games for other platforms, such as PCs or consoles.
