    Congratulations on doing this, it should really be the way to go in IM. Have you considered popular directories to feature your games on? Social media should also help make it viral depending upon how appealing your game may be.

    We can highlight our apps via Infographics, Case Study & Videos. And make sure need to target audience. In part of promotion banners also really works perfect.

    If client budget very low means best content marketing, relevant forums discussion and much more.

    I have PMed you about it. I can generate you downloads via Facebook.

    Apart from that you can

    1)Create a Fan Page on Facebook
    2)Advertise on popular App review sites via BuySellAds
    3)Get it tweeted by popular people
    4)Contact famous Youtubers and Viners to do a campaign about your app.
    5)Do a PR Release

    The most imp still would be Store Optimisation.

    A lot can be done. Just research on the subject.

    Social media OP, it's the way to go. If you have some followers then your good to go. If not just pay someone to promote your app on their social networks.

    Good luck with the promotion.

    try to get your app reviewed by famous bloggers. If you can get a single review from a blog like idownloadblog your downloads will fly.
