Proper store optimization for your app can mean the difference between a hit and an absolute dud. In this premier episode of App Business Secrets, Abhinav Gupta shares his strategy he has coined T.R.I.C.K.S. Tricks stands for Title, Reviews, Icon, Customer, Keywords, Screenshots/Video. With this strategy Nav (Abhinav) hopes to show you how he has found success with his own games and apps.
This latest video is for the next letter in the acronym, R, Reviews. Nav's advice: Keep up the quality of your apps, with new features and updates, and each round will bring you a new set of reviews.
“Nothing moves an app faster up and down the ranks than solid reviews. Go and find your user base, get them to download your app or game and give them incentives to give an honest review. For example, a simple contest for simply writing a review could be a good solution. Others have used virtual currency for honest reviews. Whatever way you use to get your reviews, keep in mind that they will definitely either increase your rank or decrease it. Keep in mind, that even the top selling apps have received 1 star reviews.”
