Optimization

What is App Store Optimization?

It is the process of optimizing a mobile app page to maximize visibility and increase Conversion-to-install Rate.

2 reasons why you need App Store Optimization

Boosting impression-to-install conversions.
The app gets more users and generates a higher revenue at the same marketing expense.

Boosting app visibility in the store:
improving search results ranking, getting into Recommended and other collections.

Successful optimization consists of working on every element of the app store page. Work on this tool should be done regularly: once per quarter or at least once per half a year. As a result, you start getting more installs with a lower CPI.

Main stages of ASO

Strategy development

Analysis of the application, topics, competitors and the target audience. In parallel, if necessary, collecting the semantic core and development of a promotion plan.

Hypothesis testing

Testing the metadata if necessary on the traffic relevant to the application. In this way, the option with the highest conversion rate is determined.

Metadata preparation

Based on the developed strategy, new app’s metadata is prepared for publication or testing. The rating and reviews are also adjusted if necessary.

Keyword promotion

After choosing the optimal design of the page with the help of testing begins the next stage — keyword promotion, using keywords collected in the first stage.

What approaches do we offer?

One-time optimization

Best for an effective launch of products that are scheduled for release. Also good for released products where initial optimization has not been performed fully. As part of one-time optimization, you can purchase either individual elements (screenshots only, video only, text part only, etc.) or a whole set of elements.

Event-based ASO

Best for products that already have a lot of brand traffic and strong marketing activity. Event-based ASO adapts to trends, events, seasons and events. To stay relevant and stand out from the competition, it's a good idea to periodically update the graphics. Such as for different seasons, significant events, new items announcements for apps with a large amount of content, etc.

Iterative ASO

Suitable for apps that focus on results — increasing Conversion Rate. Iterative optimization analyzes the current state of the product and works on elements that are found to be ineffective. This type is needed in order to find the most converting element of the graphic.
