    Hi all

    I have developed a facebook app in a niche that is quite big and has no big players yet.
    The app was released about a month ago and has now 150 users.
    I have a very hard time to build up a user base.

    The users I have are very happy and suggest the app to others but the app doesnt take off.

    My current stats are

    MAU 150
    DAU 20

    What I did sofar to get more people:

    - Facebook ads (PPI)
    - Active community page
    - Pinterest (the app is picture driven)
    - Tumblr with IFTTT instagram pics and links
    - Buy 200 likes so that the app doesnt look to empty
    - Post on pages and groups on FB & G+ & reddit


    The App uses:

    - Like page
    - Many share possibilities (share you stats, pics etc)
    - Open graph
    - Pin it
    - Invite friends
    - FacebookConnect / Canvas or registration via email


    I think everything looks pretty good but the growth is horrible :S


    Got ideas what else I could do?

    Thanks!

    You will need to wait a little longer before it becomes stable or let's say 'Viral'. I push around 1k users in a few minutes and keep trying to get my app viral. If it fails on my first push, then I try again in another day. I would suggest you to post on few pages you own else buy a few status updates from reasonable pages which are active :)

    Thx didnt thought about buying a post.
    I also crosspromote on another app of mine (5k users).
    I guess I have to be patient :-/

    Any other ideas? ;o)
