Re: Increase sales?

Get BFB certified, with the latest changes in BBWorld it gives more visibility.

Re: Increase sales?

@JeffLemon according to your signature, most of your apps are playbook apps. As for me, I saw a huge drop in my recent playbook sales - in fact, I gave up on tablet. maybe you have the same drop on the tablet side

Re: Increase sales?

Yes, I have seen a drop in tablet app sales, but my BB10 app is still expiriencing low sales, despite it being BFB.

Re: Increase sales?

i just did a quick search on the keyword 'drums' in the store - I think it's because you have a lot of competition going on Smiley Very Happy


in my list you're listed in the 7th place (though built for blackberry, and the third place has only just one star)

 

also, most of the competing apps are free. maybe you should consider a freemium model Smiley Tongue (create a 'drums lite' version, which is free + inapp purchase)

Re: Increase sales?

Thanks for the tips.

 

I was considering making Drums free and not bothering with a lite version.

 

For revenue I would be dependent on In App Purchases of new kits.

 

I tried to make it free but this is not easy to do with App World. I started another thread on the topic but it appears you ahve to email BB and then I may never be able to put it back to paid.

 

App World is servely lacking it features which the competition easily have - pricing, promo codes etc.
