5 Tips For Advanced App Store Optimization

  1. The mobile app stores should use keyword triggers in the name, title, description, and other fields of your app listing. Therefore you should conduct thorough keyword research prior to the app listing.
  2. The presentation of your app on the app store product page has a significant impact on the conversion rate of your app. Conversion rate optimization should be your continuous focus to generate more downloads. You need to include the most relevant thumbnail images and screenshots of your app in the app store product page. It will directly boost app downloads and conversion rates.
  3. The app icon should be creative enough to catch the eye of the app store users. This improves your chances of getting more traffic on your app store product page over your competitors. After all, mobile app marketing is about creativity.
  4. A/B testing for your app store fields is very crucial for effective ASO. The experimentation and hypothesis testing is crucial for your app. This way, you increase your chances of getting every ounce of value from the possible ASO areas within the app stores.
  5. You should consider utilizing Apple’s Spotlight Search. The spotlight search enables users to search for the apps they’ve already installed on their mobile device in the past.
  6. You shall localise your product page for every country that you post your app for. A blind translation of language isn’t sufficient for this. Localisation gets you in touch with different culture, search and behavioural habits. Therefore, when launching the app for a different country, you should adopt the relevant language, provide app screenshots in their language and utilize culture-specific engagement tactics.
