Boston, MA (PRWEB) August 20, 2013
Sean Casto, CEO and Founder of PreApps, talked to Samsung hackers about the importance of pre-launch app marketing for new android apps at the Samsung Hackathon on August 17th, 2013 at PayPal in San Jose California.
App developers are competing against more than 1 million other apps and new app ideas. All looking to be successful, but few are. This creates one of the biggest challenges that app developers face: How to make your app stand out. The answer? “Pre-release buzz,” according to Sean Casto.
“Pre-launch buzz building has become an essential component of success within almost every industry but one. The mobile app industry does not capitalize on the power and potential offered by prerelease buzz building new apps. App developers seem to be content to let their apps “sink or swim” with little to no fanfare to even announce the app’s rollout, much less to get their target market excited about the release,” stated Sean Casto, “We believe it is the time to change this given the fact that the mobile app industry is becoming increasingly more competitive, especially for the new comers. Now with PreApps prelaunch buzz building they can ‘float up’ much quicker after jumping into the deep ocean.”
