Our goal at App-Squad is to help our clients reach the entrepreneurial goals, by building great gaming app’s and providing superior marketing services. We breathe, eat, and sleep app’s and app marketing, every day and the results we get for our clients, speak for themselves. Below is a small sample of the many clients we have built apps for, as well as developed, launched and managed app marketing campaigns for.

 

CLIENT A – CASE STUDY

We launched our client, Darren’s app into Google, Apple, and Amazon app stores. We started to work with Darren to understand his goals, learn more about his ideas and work to develop a marketing campaign for his new app, that set expectations to meet his goals, based on his budget needs.

 

  • We included App Store Optimization (ASO) for all three (3) app channels.
  • We also worked tirelessly building keyword optimization, title, and description optimization along with app icon optimization.
  • After 2 weeks of strategy sessions and 3 more weeks of optimization due diligence, we launched Darren’s marketing campaign in May.
  • In 6 weeks after our marketing strategy campaign launch all of our efforts started to show results.

CLIENT B – CASE STUDY

 

Julia loves to play Match 3 games and wanted one of her own with a few personalized twists to it.  So after 2 months of working tirelessly to finalize her game, we launched her app in all three (3) app channels; Amazon, Apple and Google.

 

  • Julia had a vision of what she wanted to accomplish with her app, so we spent several phone sessions with her, to understand her goals, her budget and set her expectations.
  • Once we had a budget in place, and set expectations based on her goals, we started to develop and campaign strategy that targeted all English speaking countries so that her gaming app had exposure, globally.
  • We then immediately started our due diligence process to develop keyword, title, description, icon optimization and also worked to develop her video preview strategy.
  • We launched her gaming app, App Store Optimization (ASO), 3 weeks after we began working to develop her marketing campaign strategy.
  • We then spent the next 6 weeks developing A/B testing to make sure we had the best combination of keyword, title, descriptions and icon optimization.
  • By June 15th (6 weeks) into her campaign, the fruits of our labor started to pay off
  • Her 4 month campaign (based on her budget) yielded: 120.69% increase in downloads and a 40.18% increase in revenue.

 

CLIENT C – CASE STUDY 

 

As with all marketing services, our client, Michael,  was looking for a quick shot in the arm regarding new users which would translate to more “in app” purchase and “ad view” revenues.   Since we were already performing basic ASO for Michael, we sat with him and asked him about his objectives and goals.   After gaining insight to Michael’s goals and understanding what his budget was, we went into action.  As with any marketing campaign, you will be able to see that around day forty-five (45) – the results started to show.

 

  • We first increase ASO activity to expand on more keyword optimization (Amazon, Apple and Google)
  • Then we added video previews to his app listings
  • We did a heavy outreach campaign and developed a strong game ‘brand’ initiative
  • We increased app description optimization across (Amazon, Apple and Google)
  • We A/B tested icon and title optimization
The results show an increase of over 11k new downloads and over $13k in new ‘in-app’ purchases,  in 90 days.

App Preview Videos

Preview videos have been in Google Play for a long time, while iOS added it only 2 years ago. Still, many companies miss this opportunity to get this extra boost for your app and lose a lot of money by not adding the right preview video.

Pro-Tip: If you have a good app, you must add a preview video.

App Localization

Localization allows you to place your app in other countries and in other languages. Localize your app to grow your potential customer’s reach.

Cross Platform

We monitor keywords, category searches, themes and game types on a daily and weekly basis. Allowing us to help you know what are the main keywords that get potential users to install in Google Play and iOS to improve your app rankings.​

App Icon Optimization

After the title, the most important part of the optimization process is to find the right icon, the icon is always the first visual part of the app and has to tell the potential user everything they need to know in 2 seconds.

Pro Tip: The icon and title must be connected.

App Description Optimization

90% of the users don’t read the description in free apps and games.  However; it is a very crucial component to your apps listing and ranking success algorithm.

App Reviews

Our reviews outreach program is a comprehensive and diligent process where we survey your app users, asking them how they feel about your app and what the love about it.  We then proactively ask them if they would be interested in leaving a review for you.  Reviews are a HUGE part of your app being a success in all of the app channels; Amazon, iOS and Google Play.
