Frustrated RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi all fellow developers,

    I have produced what I feel is a high quality data related app, in that we are suppling a great cost premium data on the English Premier League, yet the downloads are really slow. 

    I dont really understand how I can advertise my app to the public as all Microsoft are doing in the Sports Store is advertising ESPN products on the front pages. 

    I also dont understand how paid for apps such as mine are getting no coverage from Microsoft when free apps are?.

    Sorry for the rant but I am getting a little frustrated that I have invested a lot of time and money and am getting no coverage!!!

  • I doubt MS is going to do anything much for you unless you have a huge downloads and ratings.

    I would suggest you to do your own marketing like:

    1: Have one or two pages on a website dedicated to your app.

    2: Ask for feedback from your friends and followers on social network. Ask them to Like and spread word.

    3: Create demo video of your app and post it on youtube, social networks, etc.

    4: Writing article about your app for different website/forums that are dedicated to Win8.

    5: Paid advertising (if it's worth)

    May be you are already doing some or all of that.
