Show Notes

How do you top the App Store and get 40M downloads with a $0 marketing budget? Our guest today is Aurora Berg, VP of Business and Marketing at Dirtybit, and she is here to share to us tips in how Fun Run got to this peak…free!

Here are the highlights of my conversation with Aurora:

  • The goal to create childhood fun bringing birth to their flagship app, Fun Run,
  • Fun Run’s journey from their first 1k downloads to reaching 40M,
  • Social integration and their genius Golden Fox marketing initiative,
  • Their pricing strategies and regular updates as being part of their app success, and
  • Networking and engaging people and what to expect next from Dirtybit. 

Fun Run’s strategies are great tricks to apply but Aurora had also highlighted that providing value to our consumers is still essential, thereby, back your marketing with great content as that is what people will come back for.

…and Aurora, please give me the Golden Fox. I swear I won’t tell anybody!
