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: 

The engagement helped the third-party clients met their goals of increasing downloads. Apptuitive produces a seamless workflow through regular communication and transparency. The team is hard-working, driven, and easy to work with.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

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.

What were your goals for this project?

​Creating captivating app store pages to grab attention and convert.

Everything. The value they deliver in the time and price for what it’s worth is unbeatable. I’ve never worked with an agency that was so on top of the ball and treated its clients like royalty.

No, but I wish they could handle our app marketing from start to finish!

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.

App store optimization for iOS & Android

What were your goals for this project?

To create app store listings optimized for search and conversion.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

It was a clear choice. Their pricing and straight-forward nature was something I appreciated.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

As lead developer, I’m in charge of all the technical aspects of developing & launching our app. However, I’m not familiar with ASO so I needed a small team to compile the metadata and visual assets for me.

Apptuitive delivered everything we needed for a successful launch on both platforms. The team also gave great advice on optimizing for our future watch product.

What was the team composition?

The CEO, head of marketing, and graphic designer were involved with our project.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Great app store pages. Immediate ranking for targeted keywords. High-conversion rate, currently outperforming our benchmarks by a landslide.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The project and communications were great, no qualms. Revision work and back-and-forth was minimal.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Product knowledge. Our app can be difficult to understand for most, but the team undertook a lot of research and testing before even saying yes to working with us. Also, I was shocked at the value we received. Other agencies quoted 3x for what Apptuitive did for us.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

My name is Hayden Steele, I'm the creator of the SHOCK: Women's Fitness App and CEO of SHOCK Training LLC. SHOCK gives women a new way to get fit, tone up, and build muscle.

Our app creates customized quick, effective workouts designed to burn more calories in less time. We have over 500+ beginner and advanced exercises shot in 4K video.

On­go­ing use re­quires an ac­tive sub­scrip­tion, avail­able on a month­ly, quar­ter­ly, or year­ly ba­sis.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Apptuitive?

We hired Apptuitive months before our launch on the App Store to create a digital strategy. This included optimizing our App's name, subtitle, keywords, our app description, and digital marketing strategy.

What were your goals for this project?

As a new app in a saturated health and fitness space, we wanted our app to stick out from our competitors. Our app is unique in many ways, and Apptuitive helped us capitalize on the unique qualities of our app.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I interviewed the best companies I could find that are affordable for a small business. I liked Apptuitive because they have a great reputation, but I selected them over the other companies because I felt the most comfortable talking with Carissa Lintao, the CEO of Apptuitive. I could tell she had a genuine interest in the project and provided very thorough answers to questions I had prior to the project.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

After selecting Apptuitive, I was given a series of questions to describe the unique qualities of the SHOCK app and identify goals for our new brand. From there, they developed a digital marketing strategy that included optimizing our app name, subtitle, keywords, description, and imagery for the best search results in the App Store.

What was the team composition?

I work closely with Carissa and communicate with her. I'm not sure how other team members are involved.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Apptuitive has been amazing and vital to helping our app compete against some of the largest companies in the App Store. Within a few months of our app launch, Apple selected us as a candidate to be featured as App of the Day.

This is one of the greatest compliments any app can receive from Apple. Since then, we have been recognized as one of "The 12 Best Workout Apps to Download Right Now" by Harper's BAZAAR.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Carissa is easy to communicate with and provides us frequent updates. I've always been impressed by the timeliness and quality of work.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I was blown away by the knowledge they had about the fitness industry and our market. Not only has she helped me with digital marketing, but she has also helped me in ways that extend above and beyond what I initially hired her to do.

She always makes herself available to answer questions and genuinely cares about your success. I believe this is a unique quality and something that has always meant a lot to me.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, I have been 100% happy with Apptuitive and wouldn't use anyone else.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the co-founder of a lifestyle meditation app on iOS and Apple Watch. I handle operations and my partner handles the technology. We’re a small team but are looking to rapidly expand once the app has proven traction and we’re able to raise our second round of funding.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Recruitment Management Consultants?

My partner and I didn’t realize ASO existed until someone in our cohort mentioned it. They took on overhauling the app listings we did have in place.

What were your goals for this project?

​Our goals were making sure we had our bases covered with keyword optimization in the meditation space. As well as making sure the app store screenshots were created with best design practices in mind.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We came across Apptuitive on Clutch and almost immediately scheduled a call. Their Pro package is extremely reasonable compared to other agencies and included everything we needed at a fixed-cost.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

​We needed both of our app store pages completely optimized top down. We also needed our user feedback translated in a way to help us with our positioning in the market. The team was able to incorporate our research and existing design materials in their deliverable in a way that made sense. It was fascinating to see the data and research behind their suggestions for the app store pages and company positioning, in general.

What was the team composition?

Our point of contact was Carissa. We briefly touched base with the team’s marketing intern to brainstorm ideas on strategies which was something really nice they offered for no extra cost.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’re still in the process of preparing for our official launch, but although the work isn’t implemented in the App Store, I have absolutely no doubt we’ll immediately start showing up for our target list of keywords. The team took into account our budget and other marketing efforts when choosing our keywords, and because they pinpointed a niche that wasn’t as competitive, the data is very promising.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Very. We were very hands-off. All we needed was the initial call to discuss the app and our goals in-depth and the work was completed within 4 days or so.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The turnaround and attention to detail. I felt as if there was a lot of thought put into it and was surprised that they were able to get back to me and my partner so fast with such quality work.

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the founder of a small up and coming startup focused on educating the next generation of marketers. I oversee operations, brand partnerships, and growth.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Apptuitive?

We hired Apptuitive to help us with app store optimization and creative direction before our Summer launch.

What were your goals for this project?

To ensure both our iOS & Android app store pages were completely optimized. Including keyword optimization and app icon & screenshot designs.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We were disappointed with our efforts in trying to find an in-house ASO marketer, so we turned to find a reliable agency to work with. Apptuitive was very thorough in the initial call we set up and I got the sense that they were more experienced and genuine than others.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

We needed both of our app store pages completely optimized top down. We also needed our user feedback translated in a way to help us with our positioning in the market. The team was able to incorporate our research and existing design materials in their deliverable in a way that made sense. It was fascinating to see the data and research behind their suggestions for the app store pages and company positioning, in general.

What was the team composition?

We worked closely with the project manager Carissa and Aiden & Lidiya the data analyst and graphic/UI designer. They were extremely collaborative but never to the point where communication was overwhelming. They asked great questions and really only wanted to get in touch to ensure the work looked good to me throughout the process.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The delivered keyword research document, comprehensive PDF of suggestions, and delivered visual assets turned out better than I could have ever expected.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

It was seamless. The team understood what exactly needed to be done and what they needed from us. We only needed a quick Skype call to touch base and they were able to handle the rest through a few follow up emails and check-ins.

The communications/revisions for designs were also very seamless. The team does a great job in keeping communication open and picking out small things that we didn’t know we needed.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their honesty and willingness to be flexible on budget and timeline set them apart. I needed the ASO work done last minute due to unforeseen changes in the development timeline and the company accommodated everything I needed and then some. I don’t think I’ll ever come across a team that was as willing to burn the midnight oil on a project that wasn’t theirs. Very nice and considerate experience.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Personally, I don’t think so. I would love for them to offer advertising services, but other than that I wouldn’t change anything about their process.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the CEO of Apptaste, a mobile app agency. We focus on designing and releasing mobile apps to the Apple App Store. Our company has about 5 employees and we're based in the UK but we work with clients around the world.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Apptuitive?

We were looking for an agency to work on one of our new apps' App Store presence. We mainly wanted help with the app's keywords and description.

What were your goals for this project?

We're aware of how important keywords are in order for apps to rank well in the App Store, so we wanted to make sure all of our apps have their keywords optimized before release. We wanted the agency we hired to pick the best possible keywords so the app would have a head start and secure its place in the App Store.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We looked through Clutch for suitable marketing agencies and emailed several of them. Apptuitive was quick to respond and very friendly, and the examples they sent over were impressive so we decided to go with them.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

After we selected Apptuitive, we discussed the goals of the project and the details of the app. The team then went forward and produced a document with the title, keywords and description. It was a quick and simple process.

What was the team composition?

We had one point of contact for the project, who took care of our requirements and provided us with the final results.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The app immediately started ranking for some top keywords, and has been rising in ranking over the past few months. This has resulted in a lot more downloads and purchases than it would have had, had we not hired Apptuitive to work on the keywords.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We corresponded mainly via email. Apptuitive was quick to respond and very friendly. The document we received containing the keywords was formatted very well and was simple to understand. We were very satisfied with the whole process!

What did you find most impressive about this company?

We loved how friendly Apptuitive was and how quick they were to respond to our queries! The results were brilliant and we'll definitely be hiring them again in the future.

Are there any areas for improvement?

We were very happy with the process and the results, so we can't think of any areas for improvement.
