Tech entrepreneurs and the agencies who support them: Your app is not alone. Building a great product isn’t enough to build a sustainable user base. Stories of great products that no one ever found litter the has-been tech entrepreneurship landscape. Marketing has to be at the core of your and your clients’ best practices if you want your app (and business) to succeed.
Join some of Colorado’s most savvy tech marketers, hosted by Colorado’s leading marketing organization, to learn:
- How do you launch big and loud? Or is that even right for your app?
- How do you improve the discoverability of your app after its initial release?
- Is there a formula for money-per-download to include in planning?
- How do you build relevant marketing plans aligned with distribution strategies to get your app into more people’s hands more cost effectively? And ahead of your competition?
This is the first of four in the Colorado American Marketing Association’s Drive Digitally event series which focuses on the practice of digital marketing.
