Cost-Effective App Marketing & ASO

BRONZE VERIFIED

We partner with rising brands to ensure their best chance of succeeding in the app stores. 70% of app downloads come directly from organic search, meaning app store optimization needs to be the start of kicking off any marketing strategy.

We pride ourselves in demystifying ASO. We know ASO is confusing, so we do our best to lay things out in plain English. Everything is completely transparent, meaning no "proprietary software", fees that don't make sense, or empty promises.

We also understand the importance of your brand. We immerse ourselves with your industry before we even begin work on any project.

Feedback summary: 

Apptuitive was able to provide great outputs for the client and they were able to implement them during the pre-release phase. The team managed to utilize the client's existing workflow. They were transparent throughout the project.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the Chief Marketing Officer for a video technology software company based out of Hong Kong and the Philippines that make B2C SAAS fo live streaming content.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Apptuitive?

We had an upcoming Mobile App launch on iOS and Android and wanted to consult an experienced outsider to help guide us in the lead up to launch

What were your goals for this project?

To ensure we received a full audit of our upcoming launch including feedback on creatives, copy, keyword targeting, and app title from a proven expert in the field.

SOLUTION

How did you select Apptuitive?

We found apptuitive via upwork, though ultimately it was the service's portfolio of previous clients, case studies, and positioning of their front-facing founder that ultimately drove us to choose them over the competition.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

After the initial client brief was defined a kick-off call took place where we specced out the deliverables and timelines as well as set up channels with key stakeholders within the company. Ultimately final deliverables would encompass full reports per platform outlining suggested strategies followed by a debrief call.

What was the team composition?

End to end service was handled by Apptuitive's principal founder Carissa Lintao, and our company's in-house marketing team.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

Ultimately we were very happy to receive these insights prior to launch so that we had an opportunity to implement learnings in the pre-release phase. In addition, Apptuitive's insight also helped quell any concerns as well as provide a great bootcamp in essentials for when launching on mobile store platforms.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Apptuitive were very open to utilizing our pre-existing workflows, much of the coordination took place via a shared slack channel with frequent input and collaboration.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Ultimately the aspect I was most impressed with was their transparency and lack of pretension. It is all too frequent for agencies to keep many of their processes and workflows obfuscated as a means of protecting "trade secrets". In comparison, however, Apptuitive provided an overview of their methodologies, tools, and workflow which provided a great primer for our marketing team.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Apptuitive were outstanding partners i would wholeheartedly recommend to my peers.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the Founder of a mental health app, WorryTree, which empowers people who suffer from anxiety and depression to build better habits and manage their worried and negative thoughts better.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Apptuitive?

I recently hired Apptuitive to support me with App Store Optimisation specifically for our iOS app. This is an area that I have no experience of and so was looking for someone with expertise.

What were your goals for this project?

To ensure that our App Store listing was optimised to make sure that as many people as possible would see WorryTree within their searches.

SOLUTION

How did you select Apptuitive?

I searched online for someone who was an App Store Optimisation expert. I actually came across some of Carissa's articles on Medium and I think Forbes, and when I delved more deeply I found that Carissa's values seemed a great match for WorryTree. Its important to me to work with people who are similarly trying to make a difference to the world.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

Apptuitive did a thorough analysis of the WorryTree app store listing and key words within my industry and with competitors. They provided me with a thorough deck of information on where WorryTree sits amongst its competitors and provided me with a great deal of helpful information to make improvements to our current listing.

What was the team composition?

I've worked closely with Carissa Lintao, who has provided me with so much information and support and has been an incredibly helpful sounding board around other development elements of WorryTree too.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

Whilst its incredibly early days in terms of implementation of Carissa's recommendations, impressions and sales in the last seven days have increased. It was easy to add the information that Carissa shared with me and everything was approved in review with Apple.

Time will tell how much of an impact the work will have on WorryTree, but I am already certain that we will see progression as a result of this.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Carissa was very prompt and responsive at all times and patient with the many questions asked. They provided information and support above and beyond the scope of the project and has been a great pleasure to work with.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Carissa's knowledge around optimisation was brilliant and she was more than willing to provide information and support above and beyond the project scope. Her values are very much aligned to mine with regards making a difference in the world and I would highly recommend anyone work with her in the future.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Not applicable.

What were your goals for this project?

Get a profesional analysis to develop our ASO campaign

SOLUTION

How did you select Apptuitive?

Through a referrence from a digital marketing agency that we work with.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

The first thing that they did was to get some data from our company's product. Then they explained us deep down of how app store optimization works, and how it would benefit our product You also said you have attempted your own ASO.

As our product wasn't on the market yet they focused quite heavily on picking apart our competitors to give us an idea on “what not to do.” This gave a better understanding of how to create a better ASO campaig.

What was the team composition?

I worked with the Director of Operations and the Founder.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

It helped us a lot to have a professional base to build a better ASO for our launching.

I am the founding editor of FreshlySourced, a blog focused on political journalism and communication in the United Kingdom.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

We discussed various strategies to be in the best place possible for when I launch the app. Apptuitive put together a digital marketing strategy with well researched suggestions of keywords, a perfect app description, and a lot more.

Our reason to work with Apptuitive was to put ourselves in the best position we could through ASO & the deliverable really makes me feel like we will be in a great position when we launch.

SOLUTION

How did you select Apptuitive?

Their glowing Clutch reviews were a big factor.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

I set up a call with Apptuitive pretty swiftly after the first email contact. We discussed the project, my goals, and they were genuinely interested to learn about the industry and left the work in their hands.

I received the deliverable at the end within the promised timeframe, and it was everything and more that I could've imagined. An exceptional level of detail and research was put into the deliverable and I feel like we are in a brilliant position to launch soon!

What was the team composition?

I made initial contact through Apptuitive's email on the website & the only person I had contact with from start to finish was Carissa - who was exceptionally easy to work with.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

No progress or success to detail yet as the app hasn't yet been finished, however, we are 100% ready to plug in the deliverable when we can.

The effectiveness was highly impressive. It really was a case of making contact, waiting for the finished article, and receiving it. Couldn't have been a smoother process!

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the founder and CEO of Digiruu, an app development company based in London, UK. We create apps for startups and growth-stage businesses.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Apptuitive?

We hired Apptuitive actually for two projects, one for a dental company app and another for a children's storybook app.

What were your goals for this project?

The goals were to help the respective clients achieve high app store rankings through the use of keywords, optimised app descriptions and screenshots designed to convert "window shoppers" into downloads.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We selected this vendor because first and foremost, the founder is an incredibly talented invidiual who has done a Ted Talk, and has been featured by popular publications such as Forbes. We also recorded a podcast episode with her and she was very knowledgable. The website is extremely well presented and the results achieved for other clients have been amazing!

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

Carissa and her team were tasked with finding the best keywords for our clients' apps, writing the app store descriptions, and creating the screenshots to optimise downloads.

What was the team composition?

We mainly spoke with Carissa and her designer.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

The founder of the app for the children's book has finally achieved her long-term goal of getting downloads for her app with no external marketing costs! She's getting regular downloads and subsequent profit-generating In-App Purchases, without spending huge amounts of cash on Facebook and Instagram ads. The process is ongoing but the download rates have been incredible. The Dental app is still yet to be released but we are optimistic of just as great results!

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

REALLY effective! Carissa knows what she's doing. She's organised and has the right processes in place to ensure everything goes as smooth as possible. Sticks to deadlines and promises - that is RARE to find. Trust me.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I found the most impressive part was dealing with Carissa directly. She doesn't just give work to someone else to do. She's actively involved herself, and she's so great to work with. The team is so knowledgeable and I couldn't be more grateful to them.

Are there any areas for improvement?

None.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the Cofounder and CEO of a startup mobile app company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Apptuitive?

I hired Apptuitive to develop an App Store Optimization strategy. With limited funding, we had created a plan in-house with the information and guidance we could find publicly available. I knew, however, that we could do better with professional guidance.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goal for the project was to become more organically discoverable in the app stores - both the Apple App store and the Google Play Store.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I had seen Apptuitive and Carissa mentioned in one of my online founder forums.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

The project entailed Apptuitive doing a detailed assessment of our Apple App store presence and Google Play store presence, evaluating our performance, doing ASO related research on competitors and keywords, and recommending changes to our app descriptions and keywords to maximize our discoverability.

What was the team composition?

I worked directly with Carissa Lintao, CEO of Apptuitive

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

Our average product page visits and app downloads increased noticeably after I implemented Apptuitive's recommendations.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The workflow was excellent. Communication was also excellent. As a first-time app developer I had a lot of questions, some in scope and others out of scope, and Carissa gave clear and detailed explanations and helped me understand the app store ecosystem better.

She provided backup data for all of the recommendations, which was very helpful. She also took the time to understand my brand and business which made the recommendations even more effective.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I really appreciated Apptuitive's responsiveness and commitment to getting results for us. I felt like they cared about our business.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Nope! I would work with Apptuitive again.
