  2. 2. Prepared by Digital Idea Media Facebook: Indy App & Game Developers or App Entrepreneurs andMarketers What events are coming (local – get buy-in from industryinfluencers)Build a Crowd Who are the first people who will get access? Are they vocal (non-media) Get feedback – friends and foes – consider Clarity or otherfeedback servicesBuilding Assets Describe the UX – is it easy, fun and intuitive? Create a video – use an iPhone emulator to create a demo. Alsoconsider that you are telling a story, sharing an experience, thisdoes not mean that you need to show every feature or walkthrough how it works – leave some mystery. Add music!o Send sampleso Promote the video on YouTube, add annotations that linkback to your home page or app site, add as many tag wordsas are relevant to your demo and app content Capture app screen shots of important layers of game play orexperienceYour APP Store Presence Make your app ICON count. The ICON is real estate on a mobiledevice and it is often the first thing that a user will see whendeciding what to do next. Get feedback and spend time to make itfun and something that sparks an action. Consider your name – consider words that people are searching for. Consider your price point – anything about $.99 can actually be adeterrent. Get people hooked first then consider adding micropayment add-ons. Nail the description in 2-3 quick sentences – if people are intrigued,they will hit the more option. If you have a product review in the can, use that as part of thedescription. Otherwise avoid the hyperbole and get right to thepoint of the app – let others claim you as the world’s first, best andgreatest. Consider ratings – call in friends, users, and peers to rate the app. Apple recently deprecated the use of emoji-type characters forapp descriptions. This means you can’t be clever with symbols andcopy matters. Use reviews to sell future downloads.
