    Hi,

    My partner and I are investing $10k into marketing our dating app. Ideally I would love to see 100k downloads or more from this amount but I'm more realistic. Do any of you BHers have any tips/steps on what to do with $10k to get 100,200 or even 1 MILLION downloads?

    Thanks in Advance!

    Play had low ROI. About $3.27 per download...Not going to blow up from 30k downloads.

    $3.27 per download ain't bad at all!
    If u get 100k downloads from your 10k that's 327k from a 10k investment

    There was a service offered here that would rank your app for certain keywords in USA google play, maybe try that?

    I saw those. Someone offered $1 per download. I'm doing that if nothing else is doable. SEO and other things like that have no affect on App positioning.

    If u manage to rank high for some very good keywords it can be more... a lot more. My classmate has an app with 50k downloads with no promotion. He doesn't monetise it tho which is stupid but still

    Facebook is blocking dating sites. Twitter doesn't have a good ROI at all (best so far is Google's paid downloads)

    Or are you talking about other networks?

    Consontrate on a authorty website ....

    Good paid advertising video

    Adwords+video to website

    Work fine , then get massplanner setup ,
    Instagram , twitter, pintreast build up followers then blast to webpage

    Use a service from this forum for seo ....


    Me pesonaly do the lot from free traffic with seo but as you got a good budget hit it with adwords at 1c a click to your video then webpage..


    You and wife need to concentrate on a advertising video , to get user goto a webpage to download the app ,if the app cost tell the users on your webpage there get a free discount code sent to there email address, if they join know , the email address from the users are know your future money for other afflicate / or your own dating projects

    Forgot to mention its a free dating app. Although many of those have worked the ROI isn't there. Youtube was a great price but most people have spam block built into their brains. 10k views and you're lucky to get 5 downloads after $100 spent (estimates).

    Adwords is way too competitive as this is a competitive industry. ROI not there.

    I am agreeing on social as that has been providing regular traffic although low in numbers we can keep pushing that I guess using something like AddMEbot

    I've got GSA and SB running for the SEO. Slow progress...
    Also attempting parasite method :D (topix.com went to page 2 in 2 days...then died 2 days later (or maybe not Google sometimes removes before placing higher) (twitter took 4 days but is on page 4)
