Coming up with a truely viral app will significantly reduce the amount of time and money you have to put into promoting it. The big challenge is coming up with something thats really viral.
It never ceases to amaze me just what works and what doesn’t and the fact that there’s no guarantees. Quite often what works is very surprising indeed.
Just a few days ago we launched a slot machines application. I use the term “launched” very loosely because what I actually did was stick up a working demo, do a few wall posts and mentioned in in four or five groups (just wall posts in groups – the groups did not belong to me). I then left it because I wanted to get the new free application written, tested and launched.
So how do you think the slot machine app is performing considering its had virtually no promotion at all?
