    I am looking for an iphone app marketer to work in close coordination for 1-3 months. I would need a line item proposal, on steps that would be taken to get the app downloaded and multiple tactics, not just adwords.

    Also I am interested in having help in setting up a twitter PPC to the actual iphone app on itunes. And would be Willing to profit share on the app directly.

    On the other side of the coin if you have some interesting ideas I am all ears.

    My company is an up and coming start up apollomatrix (dot) com

    I don't know what is lol is about, I have a budget for marketing, and I am willing to build an app if an individual has an awesome marketing plan and a good idea.

    I have built 10 apps for clients in the last 4 months and the problem is app store saturation, getting an app noticed is extremely important so it can go to the next level... I just don't know how to get it there.

    I am very aware of SEO and blackhat tactics, but not when it comes to itunes conversions. for one app I had about a 1% conversion rate from ad words but that is not sustainable at almost any price. So I need an action plan in which the marketer and I can mutually win.

    I know this is an old post but since I am in the iPhone dev business myself I thought I can contribute.

    Forget about Google marketing for your App, its to expensive with low conversions.
    Testing different strategies will end you up spending a lot of ca$h with little to no result at all.
    My advice to you is to go with tapjoy c0m you will be able to setup campaigns that only charge
    you per installed App.
    The only downside is that you will need to pay 50% of what your app costs.
    Still after Apple takes their share it leaves you with a 20% profit.


    For your Elasticr game I have the following ideas.

    1) Offer new levels for points just like TapDefense does the points can be acquired free for the users by
    installing a free App and you get paid once they do. This is managed from TJ.


    2) Ad push technology to your game App and once you offer a new level or theme blast the message to all your users.

    3) Make theme based levels for different holidays, like Christmas theme, Halloween theme etc... I think you get the point.

    4) Offer a new level or theme if the user rates your App or refer a friend etc.

    5) TP allows you setup and online high score list, let the users battle each other etc.


    6) Integrate social networking like Twitter & FB and let the users post their results or just post what a great game they just played.



    Point 1-6 requires some work but you can start of with the advertising and see how that goes with very little effort.
    If you need more information about any of the ideas let me know I point you in the right direction.
