Promoting Your Application

Getting users to find your application might seem like something that's out of your hands, but you're wrong. There are plenty of things you can do to drive awareness of your application. This section focuses on a few best practices that you should utilize for every application that you create.

Getting exposure in the New category is a one-time opportunity, and you need to make sure that you leverage this in a way that will make your app shine for much longer than a few days.
