Anyone have some marketing tips?
Links to sites and so on.
What type of app is it? Typically for marketing the first thing we do for our apps is to get the keywords that we want the app to be found. Are you looking for it to show up higher on search engines like Google or you are just looking at more sales? Try posting a description of the app on these forums and then I can possibly give you some ideas. If it is meant for kids then you have to focus on where kids go for apps or if it meant for adults, you will have to look at those. For starters post your app details at: Advertising and Self Promotion and someone can give you ideas
Squidoo is another good site to get some quality traffic. You can try Submit Your iPhone App for Review | The iPhone App Review : iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad App Reviews but I think that costs a little bit of money.
Thanks for the answer!
Quizzer is a multiplayer - multilanguage quiz app. Its for youth to adults. Quizzer The Game
Ill try to go to the sits you mentioned in your post.
Is your app a freemium app or one where you charge money upfront?
you mentioned multiplayer? is that over the network or just locally multiplayer?
Its over network , you can play wherever you are.
You may need a marketer that markets your game. Or you can have an app review company review it but you have to make sure they are well ranked in search engines or that review will not matter. Also make sure to post a link to the app store here in the forums and ask for an unbiased review etc. This will not only give you great feedback to improve the game but also you will get a discussion around it which will gather attention.
hope that helps
Yeah that helps Ill post the app here when its out (waiting for apple approval).
What review sites are best , and how to get them to review my app?
I have started a list here: http://iosdeveloperforums.com/f12/top-sites-promote-your-app-42.html
I will add more as I go as this can be a lengthy process but hopefully should have it completed in a few days.
Those sites are big , my app is still small.
How to you get them to review it?
Does anyone have the photoshop skills to make an image of a sliced citron? I need a logo for my company "Citron Software"
Yes I have used someone in past that has done great logos for me. Her name is Lydia and she is a graphic designer out of Malaysia. You can email her at email@example.com. She is really good.
I will be adding many more links that are more geared towards smaller apps like yours. Didn't get time on weekend due to work 911
Quizzer has been in Waiting for review for about a week now. Hope something happens soon!
There are many ways to promote our application in market.

I am very glad to see like that it is freemium and over network, you can play wherever you are. Thanks for sharing tips.
