Mobile Monday Chicago Events:  Turbocharge your App Sales – MoMo Chicago February Meetup

Date: Tuesday, Feb 22, 2011 - 6:00pm

Location: Morning Star - 22 West Washington St, Chicago, IL

Selling mobile applications is far more difficult than selling SaaS applications.  In December of 2010, the iPhone App Store averaged 627 new apps every day.  The Android Market averaged 243.  Long gone are the days of throwing an app up into an app store and watching the dollars flow.

 

We explore many different marketing channels you can use to market your app.  We will explore the pros and cons of each channel.  Then we will look at how to instrument your mobile business so you can make data driven decisions.  Learn how to create ways of lookng at your prospective customer’s actions to inform how you market to them.  Finally, determine how your customers are using the product to drive future sales.
