    OK, so I have an Apple app for iPhone and iPad called
    Code:
    Daily Power Quotes
    it is essentially a 365 day motivational quote app with a question for reflection, ability to post to twitter/fb/email, and each author's name is hyperlinked to their wikipedia page. Pretty simple.

    Anyway, I'm thinking about actively promoting it now (it has been out for almost a year), and I'm wondering if anybody has a method. I've got a blogger page for it, but I've got too many projects on right now to start building other 2.0 properties for it...so what I'm considering is whether to just start blasting the iTunes page directly with SB. Thoughts?

    Oh, as a freebie, here are 4 codes for free downloads for the iPhone version

    Code:
    PYMNR93FTNW3
    3PYRL9KXL776
    PXWPYKMTWXYF
    FHWKLW7APLAE
    Here are 4 for the iPad version
    Code:
    REX7AFXTEENP
    3N94M33MH7LX
    6XARXARF9PXW
    ETXPAMN3NFHE
    Do not ask me how to use the codes to get it for free...ask Google instead.

    You could always get your hands on a nice list of real cell numbers and do an SMS blast.

    The App Store is a hard marketplace to market on and it differs a lot from the normal site promotion. I know there are many companies that can promote your App in App Store for something like $2k $3k but it all depends on your app.

    I know for sure that you can bank from the App Store not by the quality of your App but by your marketing skills. I have seen tons of crap apps in Top 100.

    Add your app in iPhone Apps sites, partner with developers to offer your app in bundles. There are many ways to promote it. Buy ads on big iPhone blogs/sites, Google Adwords, Facebook Promotion. Start a fake/real buzz about your App on social sites.
