    The Importance Of Marketing Your App Non Traditionally

    One of the most important factors in determining whether or not an app will be successful is how it’s marketed to the public. Future users want to see how an app will enhance their lifestyle rather than take away from it. Sure, one could use a variety of traditional advertising strategies to get their app in front of the public and hope that people want to download it. But that’s boring. And doesn’t work so well with millennials. 

    There is one proven strategy that has provided a way for companies to organically market their app to highly engaged audiences - influencer marketing. In this blog, Hollywood Branded explores how three (3) brands market mobile apps using influencers.

    Marketing A Game App

    Company: Bejeweled

    Goal: Wildly popular gaming company, Bejeweled, wanted to put together an influencer campaign to grow its user base, increase brand engagement and inspire social media users to download their app. To do this, Bejeweled partnered with some of Instagram’s most popular personalities to run a campaign under the branded hashtag #shinyplace

    Strategy: Bejeweled began the campaign by creating two witty YouTube videos that showcased users trying to escape a state of wearisome and find their #shinyplace by playing the game. In addition to the YouTube videos, Bejeweled partnered with several high-reach influencers to spread word about the campaign and inspire their followers to post a photo of them playing Bejeweled and reaching their #shinyplace.

    Strategy: Avis partnered with 9 different influencers who all had a similar audience base to their target market. These influencers included travel photographers and experts -- all of which who were great digital storytellers. Each one of the influencers posted their own unique style of content showcasing their usage of the app (photos, videos, travel tips/blogs, etc).
