  10. 10. Consumable apps. These are apps that are used and then finished. An example is a game with a fixed set of levels, once each level has been completed the game is “done” and has been consumed. Temple Run Angry Birds Talking Tom Subway Surfer
  11. 11. Apps as a Service. Just like software as a service there are apps that provide a service. Sparrow was a great example of this type of good, it was a service that the user used as an app on their phone. Things is another example. Things Mint Sparrow

  14. 14. Why people agonize over buying apps •Buyer’s remorse. •Lack of information. •Apps aren’t refundable. •Discovery. •Price. •Form factor. •Ratings. •Friction.
  15. 15. Applying this to App Marketing •People don’t like buying software from websites, they want to buy •software and products from people. •Software has an ongoing tax with maintenance, so price apps to account •for ongoing maintenance and improvements. •Create a high quality app. •Have a presence outside of the app store. •Drive ratings and reviews for your app. •Remove friction. •Pick an appealing price point. •Leverage promotions. •Create a marketing message that brings perspective.
