Working Tricks for more reviews for IOS app

App market has been a place for fire-fights from the very beginning. Obvious no? There are around a million apps in Play Store alone, and there are iOS and Windows store too. In a market where there are millions of products to compete with, things can never become easy. And neither we expect it to be. You know why? Cos this will keep going on. With resources becoming accessible and prevalence of start-up culture, we are likely to witness another boom in App Store soon. 

You might have read thousands of blogs and might have gone through various websites to learn how to promote your app and lead the App Store. But we are sure that all those things might have been quite tricky or expensive. Plus its tough for a new app developer to put too much of economy in a single product and we understand that. That is why this article is meant to help all those new developers and also the top players too (if they need help 😉 ). 

In this article we will go through the working tricks to get real app reviews and installs for your iOS app. Here’s how: 

Ask Out: Let’s face it. If we go into statistics, you will notice that people generally don’t take out time to write reviews even if they liked your app. And this is true in many levels. Remember the last time you wrote an interview. You probably can’t. Similarly people don’t want to invest their time in writing reviews. But reviews are important for you. They give reviews or not. You need them. That leaves you with only option. Ask them out. Yes why not. How will they know what you want unless you ask for it? But you need to be innovative before you ask them to provide all the reviews that you need. Make sure you pitch your requirements carefully. No one wants to annoy customers and what’s more annoying than advertisements. 

Make sure you have good ratings: Before you seek out to get more installs on your app, ensure that you have good rating on your app. When people search for apps, the first thing that people see is the app ratings. Only if your app has a good rating, you can expect people to download your app. The thing is. Ratings are the reflection of your app’s performance and only after you make sure that the app rating is good, you can expect your app to lead the app store. There are many ways to ensure that your app has a good rating. You can use app review and promotion websites and get ratings for your app. You can even hire freelancers if you want to boost your drive. 

Quality: Before you get into technicalities of app marketing, make sure that your app is up to mark. A good quality app is the first and foremost thing that you should ensure. People might look into design and UI of the app but the only thing that matters is the app content and quality. Being a developer, you should understand the importance of app quality. Try adding new and innovative things on your app. Make sure you provide regular update for your apps. Ensure stability of your app. If your app faces bugs or issues, you can never expect it to be popular amongst people. 

Reward your users: Yes. Asking for reviews is one thing and getting reviews is another. One of the best ways to ensure that people review your app is by rewarding them. By giving small discounts on in-app purchases, you can easily influence people to review and rate your product. The same scenario applies for app installations as well. By providing app referrals and discounted coupons, customers can be lured into downloading your app. Let’s look in a case study of Tez. This app was released by Google last year and within few months, Tez had occupied 30% of market share competing against top giants like PhonePe and PayTm. This success can be traced down to various referral and award schemes put forward to the users. This can be applied to your apps and you can make sure that you get more installs on your app. 

Competitions and bonuses: A great way of involving your users is by conducting competitions and awarding them bonuses. Say there is a competition in which you ask users to give their feedback on a particular app and in return you can award them with an extended trail period or maybe a free premium account. Basically anything you can afford. Awards can be appealing and can influence people to do what you want. This  gets easier in gaming apps. You can keep a mission/stage as completing feedback for the app. There are so many ways to optimise this for your app. Only you need to be creative and yes you do need to think out of the box. 

What else?

There are many ways by which you can buy app user reviews for your app. Below is the list of few methods that you can use for the purpose. 

  • Freelancers: By hiring freelancers, you can ask them to write good user reviews and give ratings for your app and you can even ask them to download your app. There are a number of freelancers hiring websites where you can post your ad and get your work done. 
  • App Review websites: A lot of app review websites provide with an option to buy app reviews and ratings. These websites have a large number of active users who are paid to write well customised reviews for your app and also give good ratings. The best part is that every review is organic and there is no chance of your app being marked by Google. 
  • Marketing Firms: Many marketing agencies provide packages of app review and ratings. They have plans depending on your requirement of ratings. Once you select a package, these firms ask their support staff to write user ratings and also provide ratings to your app. 
  • App Support websites: There are few websites which look after your marketing needs and also allows you to buy user ratings and reviews at considerable prices.

A word of caution. Buying app reviews is an easy task but some care should be given. Make sure, whatever source you use, down not use bots for providing ratings. Google has a strict rule with the use of bots and if found, your app will be marked and can also be removed from the play store.
