  • Social Icons: — 10 minutes

Include the app’s twitter and facebook icon on your landing page. The best mobile app pages have it.

  • Multi-Platform: — 10 Minutes

If you’re on a single platform, then be sure to create lead capture for the other so that way when you launch multi-platform you’re in front of the right userbase. Usually, the best way to do this is redirect them to a sign up page.

  • DeepLinks: — 25 Minutes

Be sure to set up deep linking. Branch.io makes this incredibly simple and ensures links work in all scenarios. Use it to convert organic web traffic to app installs with their smart banner, have current users share content and referrals, and track all your organic installs to understand what marketing initiatives are working.

  • Find and Promote yourself inside of relevant facebook groups: — 30 Minutes

There’s 600M facebook groups, here’s a template to promote your app.

“Hi, I just started a new app that helps people deal with [issue]. I don’t want to spam the group, but I’d love to get some feedback on it. I’ve dropped a link in the comments, I’d love your feedback on it. — [your name]”

I’ve found that for every major audience there’s about 20–50 groups that would enable you to reach a potential of 10,000 to 1,000,000 early adopters.
