Increasing App Visibility with App Store Optimization
If users can easily find your app on the app store, your potential to receive downloads will increase significantly. Thus App Store Optimization is central for any mobile app marketing strategy, and gaming apps are no exception.
To create your own ASO strategy, you need to know your app and the market. With App Store Optimization tools, you can research, monitor, and optimize seamlessly. This way you can increase your visibility score consistently, allowing you to get more organic traffic and downloads.
Royal Match is one of those apps that is steadily increasing its visibility score in the US. You can see their visibility development over a 3 month period.
After you conduct app store Keyword Research, you need to optimize your product page as the next step. Once users find your app and come to the listing, it is time to close the deal!
Your creative assets will be crucial for getting the most conversions. Even though it might seem simple, designing your app icon or the screenshots on your page requires attention to detail.
For most instances, you want to go with a clean design. Having an app icon that instantly is recognized and differentiated will be helpful. Among Us and Subway Surfers are great examples of iconic app icons.
Your screenshots are the best place to display the epic features of your game. Without overpowering the visuals with text, you can convey your value propositions to users while also displaying your beautiful UI. Through App Intelligence, you can take a peek at your competitor’s product pages to come up with your own ideas.
If you want to take your place amongst the most popular game apps, every aspect of your mobile user acquisition strategy should be given careful consideration.
