    Hello everyone, I am new and this is my first post, but always heared good things about BHW so here I am :)

    I am about to finish a web and mobile app, and I need promoters to sell those ads. I know about the usual forums and job boards to post the job, but I was aiming a bit higher, trying to also use the Social networks. I have no previous experience on that field and thought it would be good to ask. Does anyone have any previous experience, or maybe any idea on which networks to use, or some accounts to post? I am looking for free ways to promote (the paid ones I got them covered).

    If you are also aware of any free forum or can think of any other place to advertise the job offer (and also places to get new users from) I am open to learn more ;)

    Kind regards.

    I have some experience on app marketing. But it will cost some money.
    1. be social. Make a facebook page, add your friends, than promote your page to the people who are interested in that niche
    2. make an intro video of your app. share it on fb, promote that vid.
    3. write a interesting press kit, and 5-6 killer reviews.
    4. send personal mail to app review sites.
    5. add more video on your youtube channel, and buy some retention views + subscriber. so that visitor will know you are some what popular.
    6. you can buy some paid reviews.

    note: Do not usre fiverr, or cheap online mkt firm who will say they will promote your app

    For your experience, do you have any Idea of the total cost it could reach?
    When you mean promote the page, you mean using the fb option to pay some amount per day, and then they display the app to people who they think might be interested in, right?
    Sorry, I am not familarised with point number 3, regarding the reviews. Do you suggest to sumbit them to popular press releases? Where would you suggest to do it?
    I imagine that on point 4 what you suggest is that I rend a pm to webmasters of those sites, and convince them to write a review about the app?
    Thanks for the advise to not go for the cheap way, because it ends up being even more expensive...

    Kind regards,

    My idea is you try to promote your app on Social networking site and do this work manually I think you can get a good result

    Have you done this anytime? I am getting likes, shares, etc... but it is difficult to get new users. We are looking for promoters to promote the app by selling ads, and it is quite difficult. I suppose it will take time, that's all.

    So far, I am using mainly Facebook and Instagram. Getting prety good results with instagram....

    Any more Ideas?

    you should take help of social media sites like AGRYD, Google+, linkedin, Youtube, Facebook etc where more user available online. In these sites you should make account, make more friends, join groups, post more content, likes and comment others post. These social media sites are best plate-forum to promote your product and its all are free.

    DID YOU KNOW?

    You can do the promoting yourself, just by targeting Facebook members who like/use other apps?

    tickled your brain a bit? :)

    It is not a bad idea, but the thing is, we are not actually looking for users. We are looking for promoters to sell ads, and once different business are advertising, then we will go for the users, otherwise users will leave because they will find no information there...
