You must charm their mind and capture their attention before they even realize you are talking about a product. - To do that, you need to get in touch with journalists and bloggers, pitch your project to them and let them try it; if they will like it, their will suppose their audience will like it too. Testimonials & Opinion Leaders – Look for those able to influence their followers. - If you are working on an app for cars fans and a famous pilot will say it is awesome, quite definitely your app will be downloaded by all the cars fans of the world. - It might sounds impossible to reach such an opinion leader, but it’s actually easier than you could expect, if you know how to do it.

CPA is only available if you choose “Website Conversions” as your “Ad result” in the Ad creator on CPL is only available if you choose “Page Likes” as your “Ad result”. - CPC (cost-per-click) - If you use cost-per-click pricing, you only pay when someone clicks on your Facebook Ad. - CPM (cost-per-mille) - With cost-per-impression you pay when Facebook shows your ad 1000 times.

Facebook pages are a very powerful tool and can, if managed properly, be a valid alternative to your website for your fans. They will look at your page and interact with your Brand on a daily basis. You’ll be able to control their behaviour within your world and move them to your website or app whenever you want them to do it! MARKETING - REACH YOUR TARGET
  11. 11. Keep your target up to date – Interacting with your Fans is important as well as showing them how cool is to be part of your world. - Instagram – This is how we do it! - People like to dream and to be away from their reality. With Instagram you can do just that. It is becoming more and more popular as a tool for branding and marketing. Furthermore, cars pictures are awesome, YOU SHOULD USE IT! - Newsletter – In case they forgot about you - Newsletters are a classical marketing tool. They are still very popular and a well designed opt-in page is crucial when you have to gather your audience before your product launch. MARKETING - REACH YOUR TARGET
  12. 12. Hybrid – Play it safe! - Best is to start with a mix between the classical in-app Purchase and Google Adwords impression-based. The monetization strategy would then be designed after a couple of months of data and some more forecasting based on the actual app performances. BUSINESS MODEL
  13. 13. Metrics & A-B Testing – You can’t develop a successful app without them - Metrics can be used to track all every single action of your users within your app. You could then analize your users’ behaviours and optimize their user journey and experience. Keep in mind that Metrics will tell you if there’s a problem, but won’t tell you how to solve it, you will need designers for that. - A-B Testing is very good when you are not sure about a solution, and you then want to implement two or more of them in order to check which one delivers the best.
