Best Cheat Sheet For Getting App Reviews [Infographic]

It has been called the new gold rush, and it is an ever expanding business. I am talking about apps, which is the one thing that makes all of our smartphones so smart. Without the apps, there would be little “smart” about our smartphones, and maybe that is why people are so keen on constantly trying out new ones. Creating an app is not the most complex endeavor in the world, but how do you make it successful? Where can you find the very best cheat sheet to master app promotion?

There are a lot of factors that determine whether or not an app becomes successful. I wish it was all due to promotion, but that is far from the truth. There is not a ‘best cheat sheet’ in this world that will magically make an app successful. It doesn’t matter how much money or time you spend on promotion if your app doesn’t appeal to people. Sure, they could fall for the advertising and then buy and download the app, but what then? If they don’t like it, they will probably end up deleting it from their phones. Even worse, if the app is brought up in a conversation, they will most likely say they didn’t like it. What good would the best cheat sheet in the world be then? The first step to making your app a successful one is to make a good app. It’s as simple as that.

What if you have a great app? Is there a way to get it in front of people’s attention? There certainly is! One of the best things you can do is to get popular websites (like Bit Rebels) to review your app. You don’t need a cheat sheet to understand that being seen is everything. But there is a downside when having someone reviewing your app. Any highly regarded website won’t hesitate in telling people if they don’t like something about it. Everything can’t be “awesome” or “incredible,” especially not when their brand’s reputation is at stake.

If you think you can handle a bad review and use it as constructive criticism, you are well on your way to making your app a successful one. If you can take the heat, by all means have a look at one of the best cheat sheets to date which delivers tips for how you can get your app in front of app reviewing websites. It’s called, A Cheat Sheet To Get App Reviews On Top Blogs, and it is presented to us by App Design Vault (design by Ernesto Olivares). By consulting this infographic, you can perfect your app review pitch. Never forget that a great app usually promotes itself.

    Great article. I would definitely add the offer of a promo code. Don’t add the promo code in the email because the app may not be a good fit for my readers, but offer one if it’s a paid app.

    I don’t mind reminders if I haven’t gotten back to a developer. I get so many requests that sometimes it’s the squeaky wheel that gets the oil.

    This is a great article and a wonderful cheat sheet, it’s always good to hear from journalists how they prefer to be pitched, it makes everyone much happier. The only thing I do question, like Carolyn did, was the promo code. App developers are given a limited number of promo codes when they launch an app, so sending a promo code in each pitch you do will limit the number of people you can pitch to.
