    What BTL (below-the-line) ways to promote your Android Application do you know?

    Review sites are too time consuming.
    I've tried out bestratingfor.me. They can add excellent ratings to your app. Nice result but still not enough.

    What else could you recommend?

    Regards,

    I may not know much about the android community but whenever making a new piece of software, don't forget that you have friends and family that my be interested. Maybe even co-workers because they'll tell a friend and that friend will tell a friend and so on!

    If anyone is interested, I run a site called Droid App of the Day.

    I offer free reviews of android apps, so long as I think they are good! I appreciate pay pal donations to keep the site running but it isn't necessary! send me an email if you are interested.

    In my own experience - I have a few apps on Google Play - my most popular app was called Social Hub, but then I realised it was the same name as the social app of the Galaxy S3, so I decided it might be in my best interest to change the name.

    Since changing the name to Social Zone, the downloads have dropped. Have tried setting up a website Mantis Apps and have have set up the usual Facebook and Twitter Accounts. If anyone else wants to help out or has some ideas, I am all ears!

    I certainly found that advertising ad based games on Admob was not worth the money.

    Indeed, this is one that is commonly overlooked, but reportedly is quite effective.

    How do I release to the press? Any pointers? I have an app that is being appreciated by everyone that purchases it but I am struggling to go past beyond 4 - 5 installs per day...

    With AdMob you pay per click, but with GetJar you pay per download which is quite nice, though you do pay quite a bit more.

    Other than that, social media is where its at.

    I also (occasionally ^_^) write for a site called Android Way point. I'd be happy to write a review once I get the time :p

    Hey Guys,

    We came up with a solution to promote Android apps where the users are not disturbed by annoying ads. We created DappWall to promote your app efficiently and in an affordable way.

    We are freelance developers too and we've had enough of not having the possibility to promote an application without spending hundreds and hundreds of dollars. With DappWall any of the apps can get in focus and not only the ones from the biggest developer companies.

    Hope you guys give it a shot,

    - The DappWall Team

    This thread was really interesting to me. All answers were really helpful.
    I am new here and it is the first time I use a forum. I work for a gaming developing company and I would like to learn better how to use forums, blogs, social media and advertising tools.
    ;-)

    If you want to promote your android application in affordable and genuine way then use facebook, twitter and Linkedin social sites. You can also choose SEO strategies for promotion of android application.
