How Cheeky Beasts Landed an Apple Feature

Celeste had followed a bunch of our videos and tutorials online and the advice that worked for her is focusing the story around the app. When she filled out the Apple form, she personalized her message, giving over personal details and her story despite being worried about coming across as unprofessional. She also created an Apple-specific slideshow packed with beautiful, polished graphics and felt that made a difference.

Hacking the “Price Drop” Campaign

After the Apple Feature, Celeste got tons of impressions but because it was a paid app, they did not as much conversion as a free app would. To keep the momentum going, leverage that feature in your app screenshots as social proof. On the revenue side, you can also go with the freemium model where, for this app, a couple of chapters can be made free and the rest of the chapters can stay as paid.

Steve Young

Founder at AppMasters
I started building apps in 2011 and my first app hit #8 under educational games. I started making a few hundred dollars a month, but had no idea what I was doing. Then in 2013 I decided to start a podcast so I could pick the brains of app creators that I admired including the co-founder of Shazam, Tapbots, Crossy Road, etc and that changed everything.

Now I run an app marketing agency where we’ve helped 28 clients get featured by Apple, 5X downloads with ASO, and get coverage on Techcrunch, Mashable, Venture Beat and other major publications. I also write about apps on The Next Web, Entrepreneur.com, and on my blog AppMasters.co.
