Promote a website on windows apps? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,

    I don't have an app in the Windows App Store (yet). Is there a way to just promote a website on the Windows apps? Reason is, my target audience consists of Windows users.

    How do I get started in buying ads in this case?

  • Hello,

    You won't be able to buy ads for promoting the website on others' Windows apps. But you can create your own app and add the website to your app. And use community ad to cross-promote your app with other developers in the Windows Store for free.  

    For more details, you may refer to about community ads.

    Best regards,

  • I just got my first app in the store and it is a Progressive Web App (PWA).  It is basically a website with a very minimal wrapper around it so it behaves like an app to the end user.

    You can create your own PWA from your site at www.pwabuilder.com.

    Thinking that I can use my presence in the windows store as a springboard. A prospect installs my app on their desktop computer, then I can tell them how to 'install' my app on Android and iOS.

    I am also interested in promoting my PWA.

    Hi SilentSteel,

    Currently, it's not possible to promote websites on Windows apps. I would suggest that you use Bing Ads to target windows users.
