There is a decent number of ways to market your mobile app on app stores. I think by now we all know them so well – App Store Optimization to drive native traffic, paid user acquisition via Apple Search Ads or Google Ads, acquiring users via paid ad platforms from Meta, TikTok, Alphabet and some more.

But at some point – for savvy app marketers this point comes pretty early in their app marketing journey –  you realize that it is not the end of the story. As much as it makes sense to connect your app via built-in search on app stores or use paid ad platforms, there are more ways to build your app’s user base when you think out of the box, specifically out of the app store 🙂

Quotes from Jokub Chour:

Well, I’ll stick with the rule that says that if everyone else is doing it, it’s not worth doing it.  I’ve seen a lot of outcomes from generative AI and I wasn’t impressed in general for our niche. I mean like it’s great to write an email, or, I don’t know, a PR release, but it’s it hasn’t been great in the niches like ours.

I wouldn’t say channel, but definitely like Multimedia Modeling or Incrementality measurement are something that are like talked about a lot but I don’t think that we are at a point to fully utilize that as I’ve seen some tools that are going this way. It’s like telling a fairy tale. At this point  you can have it generating numbers, but for me, it is hard to trust it fully.”
