What is a Mobile App?
A mobile app or application is a software programme built precisely to be used on tiny, wireless computing devices, like smartphones and tablets, instead of desktop or laptop systems.
Why Mobile Apps?
Here's why your business must have an app. Benefits of business apps are as follows:
" Build business friendships
" Build trust and confidence
" Strengthen your brand
" Establish your presence
" Improve your reachability
" Get out of the spam folders
" Raise sell-through
" Get more exposure across mobile devices
" Connect with on-the-move users
" Create repeat business
We at Pixilex have analysed the best and the most unconventional ways to market mobile apps and picked the top 10 in our report.
1. Create a Microsite
Microsite is a simple one or two-pager that exhibits your app to the netizens. Take hints from Snapchat and Path.
2. Create a Teaser Website
Carry this out a month or two prior to the launch to gather email IDs of prospects who would like to know the app's launch date.
3. Build a Blog
Connect it with your microsite. Publish engaging content that will woo people to your website. Buffer app is a very effective way of doing this.
4. Distribute your Content
Make use of your Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn and Twitter pages to promote the app multiple times in a week.
5. Make a Product Video
Keep it original, humorous, stimulating or personal. Tell a story, but in such a way that people can relate to it.
6. Get Press, As Many As Possible
Press is the most effective method to kick-start a start-up. The best tactic to get it is by manually getting in touch with journalists.
7. Attack the App Review Sites
Pitching to websites such as 148apps, AppStoreApps and AppAdvice can generate a lot of buzz for your app, should it get a mention in any of them.
8. Reach Out to Interested Bloggers
Find bloggers who specialize in niches that relate to your app. For example, a children's app could be pitched to bloggers writing for mothers.
9. Apply for Awards
Consider applying for awards like The Kiip Build Fund or The Mobileys. Must you win, you also get loads of press, not to forget the winner's booty.
10. Create a Podcast
Post it on iTunes or your own website. Attract content from the field your app caters to.

Pixilex is a premier digital and content marketing advertising agency in Bangalore with this one goal-to boost your sales. When most people think of advertising they think of magazine ads, television commercials and billboards. Pixilex's outlook is slightly different. They believe it's anything that makes clients and their product/service famous. That is the job of an ad agency. And they make creative content that makes that happen. Then they think of ways to distribute that creative content. It might be through a film, an event on the street, a brochure or something none of us can even imagine yet.
