Promoting Apps for the iPhone, iPad and Mac by sending announcements to the owners of blogs who write about apps for the iPhone, iPad and Mac.

  1. 1. iSpreadNews.com Promoting Apps for the iPhone, iPad and Mac by sending announcements to the owners of blogs who write about apps for the iPhone, iPad and Mac.
  2. 2. iSpreadNews.com What we do: we send1 announcements of your App to news sites and blog owners of the most popular iPhone and Mac related sites requesting them to review your App. How do we contact them? We contact them via contact forms on their sites, or via email (if no contact form is available). We invite them to ask for a promo codes for testing your App or for running contests on their sites. 1) We send announcements in English because owners of the sites primarily read English. There is no need to translate announcements to other langs.
  3. 3. iSpreadNews.com How it works: From Blog Owner point-of-view • It takes too much time to ask developers of Apps we wish to review for promo codes. Most developers will tell us that they quickly run out of promo codes, so contacting several developers and waiting many days for their answer is inconvenient. • It’s time consuming to try all the possible Apps. • To try out an App, we need to buy them. • We need high-quality posts for the blogs – i.e. reviews of good games and useful Apps. • Running contests attracts visitors to the site, making them return over and over again.
  4. 4. iSpreadNews.com What we need from you to promote an iPhone App: • App name, price, size, category • Message subject • iTunes URL, company URL, product URL, screenshot URL • Announcement text (only in English) in 3 forms (up to 2000 characters, up to 1000 characters, and up to 450 characters). We will provide a recommended sample of the announcement. We do not send any promo codes!
  5. 5. iSpreadNews.com Also you need to choose a package: Choosing a set of sites whose owners will receive an announcement is easy. • “All” - $153. 310 sites in 23 languages. English: 89, Deutsch: 36, Italian: 20, Spanish: 18, French: 31, Japanese: 25, Portuguese: 9, Netherlands: 9, Danish: 4, Swedish: 8, Czech: 9, Serbian: 4, Korean: 2, Romanian: 2, Slovak: 2, Icelandic: 1, Hungarian: 3, Polish: 13, Hebrew: 8, Norwegian: 2, Finnish: 2, Arabic: 6, Chinese: 7 • “Western Europe” - $141. 224 sites in 9 languages. • “All Non-English sites” - $133. 221 sites in 22 languages. • “Highest paying languages” - $143. 249 sites, 10 languages • “Highest paying languages except English”- $109. 160 sites, 9 languages All the sites in our database are between 5-20 of the most popular iPhone/Mac-related sites in each of the countries.
  6. 6. iSpreadNews.com We’ll review everything before sending it out! All the information that you provide will be verified and checked by our specialized editors: • We’ll proofread the English (grammar and style) • We’ll propose changes to the text of the announcement, potentially increasing the number of blog owners who will review your App!! • Also we suggest changes to your iTunes description. All you have to do is to approve or deny the proposed changes.
  7. 7. iSpreadNews.com How we send the announcement: • All App information will be sent manually via website contact forms (but If a contact form is unavailable on the site, we’ll send it via email.) • We send all emails immediately, after you approve or deny changes that we propose. • Info is sent between 1-4 days via contact forms. • Blog owners will get the impression that your App info is sent directly by you. • Blog owners will reply directly to you since your email is used when sending announcements as “sender’s email”.
  8. 8. iSpreadNews.com What kind of results can I expect? (Blog owners will contact you asking for promo codes.) • About 10-15% of contacted web sites will reply directly to you. • Most of them will review your App for free. However, some may ask for money. • Be aware, some owners of sites from the US don’t reply that often, they are inundated with review requests. • Don’t ignore requests for promo codes from owners of sites popular in small countries like Sweden and Denmark. The smaller the country, the less iPhone-related sites there are available, therefore a larger portion of that country’s population will read that sites review. • After a review is published by a site popular in a small country, your App will rise to the top in the App Store of that country. So in most cases you’ll cover your expenses in a single day!!
  9. 9. iSpreadNews.com Why we are better than competitors? • Our pricing is 4-8 times lower than the competitor’s • We specialize in non-English speaking countries • You receive reviews of your App (with direct links to your site) in different languages. The position of your App in Google search results will be higher. • Announcements are written in informal style. You don’t have the extra expense of copywriters for a press- release style announcement. • Your time is valuable, the time it will take for you to do it yourself is immeasurable. • It really works!!
