I’ve worked on communication campaigns of many app companies like Facebook, Opera, Evernote and Swiftkey in my previous stint and now am part of an app company too .i.e. Vuclip. Hence i always have my ears out for all app related news with respect to marketing them.
I’ve looked through multiple sources, but the news and publications I’ve found are either focussed on everything under the sun or marketing in general or niche’s like social media. And then of course you have tons of articles sharing ‘gyaan‘ on what should and shouldn’t be done. But the deal is, i want case studies, implementations and execution.
So here’s my attempt to help me and many others like me, who’re looking out for real world examples of how brands are marketing themselves. Every Sunday i attempt to get you real world, global examples, of how apps are marketing themselves.
