How did you get people excited about your app launch?

We sent out press releases to tech blogs and news outlets, had a countdown on our website, and created teaser videos showing the app's features. We also sent out emails to our email list subscribers and posted about it on social media. Overall, we did a lot of marketing leading up to the launch to create a lot of anticipation.

You can hire an expert marketing consultant to help you figure this out

Here is a very long list of things you can do to help you, but I think your best bet is to have someone else handle this professionally,

Social media is one of your greatest friends for any kind of advertising

I think your best bet is to play to your strengths. Unless you have a background in marketing, you might find it difficult to generate your own hype without hiring someone

Personally, I like to outsource this part of the process to someone else. There are plenty of freelance marketing experts on upwork and other freelance websites that can handle this at a reasonable rate

What kind of app are you developing?

Our manager hired a PR firm to handle the launch event, they invited people to a formal event, made it into a big to-do. It was actually pretty cool and generated a lot of interest in the software

We sent out "pre-releases" of the app to a few key players in the sector to try and get them engaged in the process. Say what you will about social media influencers, but I can tell you firsthand that they are capable of getting a lot more attention to your product than you ever could have dreamed! Just try and make sure it's good attention, heheh

Living in Van. Previously lived in Toronto. Obviously rent prices are high as is cost of living. Generally go out and spend more often living in a city. Boyfriend and I on good salary but not saving much due to the above. Before we move home to our own country, we’d love to spend a year close to Vancouver where rent is cheaper, temptation is less, to save. A commute to Vancouver 1-2 times a month needs to be possible (his job). That can be a flight if it’s not crazy. Thoughts? Recommendations?
