Ever wondered what it takes to get into the top charts of the app store? What are the top apps doing that you aren’t? Is it luck? Just because you’ve built a great app doesn’t mean that they will come. It hasn’t been that way for years.

Traditional marketing will have you creating dull and boring press releases. It will tell you that you need to be spending hundreds of thousands of dollars in costly pay-per-install campaigns, and lots of other things that are impossible for today’s indie dev. You might have paid someone to tweet about your app once thinking that it would help. Or spent your hard-earned cash for someone to send a press release to their “list” of websites. Whatever your story, the end result is often the same: You do all hard work, and someone else makes the money. There is a better way.

At Serenity App Solutions (, we believe in taking the power back. As app developers and marketers ourselves, we have learned quite a bit of exactly what works and what doesn’t when it comes to app marketing. We’ve put our heads together with some of the best and brightest in the field, and learned that there are many simple and incredibly effective tricks to increasing your app’s exposure and downloads without spending thousands. And we created a course to teach you everything we’ve learned.

    Very good details on how to get the most

    Very good details on how to get the most out of an app. I really enjoyed this lesson. I actually knew some of this information but have been lazy about adding it in my apps. After watching this I plan to rethink my entire app making process. and employ as much of these details as I can. Watch, Learn, employ what you learn
