How to Market Web Apps Online

market-web-apps

With more than 1 billion websites that are online every day, it is difficult to get the attention from people whom you want to market your product, especially if you’re still starting to grow your brand from scratch.

In the tech industry, there are already existing websites that are dominating the web in providing great content (blog posts, reviews, guides) to people they want to target.

If you’re a web app site owner, there are tons of things that you need to consider not to get behind from the competition and still attracting sales from your targeted customers.

In this post, I’d like to share a few tips on how you can market your tech-related website.

1.Choose a good hosting provider

If you’ve been blogging for quite some time now, you already know that a good hosting provider will positively impact your website in terms of providing life time website experience to visitors.

Server errors and issues brought by a bad hosting provider are some problems that you may encounter if you choose not to invest your money in a good hosting.

If you’re using WordPress, you can choose any of the listed hosting provider sites here. Find one that is most recommended (proven to provide high quality services) but is still affordable to pay in a monthly or yearly basis.

2.Publish useful content

It doesn’t mean that you are not a techy person, you can’t write any posts related to technology or web apps. In fact, a simple research on the most common problems faced by non-techy people (e.g. senior citizens) and sharing how to solve them in your blog posts could already be considered as a useful content.

A good example of a useful app-enabled accessories website is Appcessories. It consistently publishes news, reviews and resources about the latest tech-related accessories for niches like health, fitness & sport and cameras.

A list post like this is a one good example of content that requires only a small amount of time and effort to research and write about.
