The 5 Phases of App Marketing Research

You've Got An Awesome App Idea… Now What?

There are a lot of facets of app development that need to work hand-in-hand together in order for your next app to be a success – the most important being marketing and advertising. Or put another way, getting eyeballs on and downloads of your app. You might think that's a bit crazy since the app kind of plays an important role in it all, right?
