As you're reading these lines, around the world dozens and dozens of app marketing teams work on brainstorming new ideas to give their app a leg up on competition. They crunch data from app analytics tools, trying to figure out why people churn away from their app, decide on plugging in a new app user acquisition channel and so on. The list is endless. If you put together all those activities together you get the App Lifecycle marketing notion - a holistic view on an app marketing, when all activities are viewed as a part of the general picture.

Quotes from Fouad Saeidi:

"A Lifecycle marketing is about creating an effective strategy that meet customers' needs at the right stage.

The first step is obviously to focus on the value proposition - how is my product is different?

You are just launching a product, do you really want that million (of users) right now? Or do you want to have thousand to ten thousand downloads to validate every stage of the product? "
