    My Apple App is now available for downloads. Just type shoot that ball and you would be able to DL the app. Now, am looking for a proven business strategy and a succesful way in promoting my app. Please email me at: [email protected]. Your help is greatly appreciated. About my app, this is the only shooting the basketball app on the App Store that you can take/upload a photo and use that as your background. Shoot as many balls as you like for 90 seconds and post your score in Facebook. Thanks!

    Hey,

    It is strange that your app is still buried in the app store during this era of so many promotion strategies. You can definitely hire some app promotion specialist.

    If you are looking for more than 900 downloads of the app from appstore within a duration of 3 months you can ask for Russell at [email protected].

    Pricing starts from as low as $3K.

  18. Hey there. Thanks for the post, it’s great for showing the way of really getting your app promoted. Although buying downloads may not be something that a lot of app owners are after. I think the new trend of the market is publicizing the app and therefore receiving organic downloads and reviews. Just my opinion though, someone may disagree 🙂

  19. I just released version 2 of the App for free download.
    It’s make sharing photos on facebook a snap.

    Most of the promotions tactics seem to be strictly online based. Developers could also promote in the physical world with branded QR codes. People could simply scan, download, and play the game. To get an idea of what I mean check out a few of our App clients. http://Qrezy.com

    I have also heard about companies that guarantee to push your app into TOP25. I heard it starts at $3k. Those companies have strong ties into social networks and offer status points for installs. I heard a common pricing is $0.40 per install.
