    Video review from App eggs or not?

    I am considering to buy a video review from App eggs. They say that they get over 1,500,000 monthly visits. They also says that video review could help users understand the app more intuitively and translate visitors to downloaders. They say that video review spreads very fast in video sites and search engines; it is also one of the most effective ways to promote the app. Most successful apps are using video reviews to enhance their publicity according to them.

    Has anyone here tried a video review from App eggs and if so, did it pay off? I assume that the promo video that they make can be used as the app video on Google play. App videos seem to be more and more important these days.

    I got the same letter from them when i released my game. So i just took a look at their game video reviews and the view count was very low. Take a look at this game. Lola's ABC Party Android Video Review -- AppEggs.com - YouTube Been over a month and has only got 446 views. I own game video (the one you link with google play) that has been for a month already and has gotten over 25k views. So for that reason i decided to not invest money because i dont believe in the return.

    Also their video review does not seem to be a review at all. Its just a gameplay video and no one is talking.

    That is very interesting to hear! So you made your own promo video for the game? Or did you hire someone to produce the video?

    Thanks for the advice, but I want to have a real professional video, not a video someone makes in 5 minutes for 5$. I have video editing software and I have made some own videos (not sure if it is allowed to post the links to them here?). I think some of them are quite good, but they are not really top notch videos.

    Do you know a good company I can contact for making a professional video? I don't want to pay more than 300.

    I think the visual quality of your video is good, but it is misleading with the mouse pointer and the camera icon. Did the video generate more downloads?

    Yes the mouse pointer bothers me too but this was the only way i know how to create the video. I tried to record straight out of my phone but it did not look so good. I have no idea if this video helped or not because i released the video with the app at the same time.
    But video was a very good indicator for me on how many downloads i could get per day. Since google updates once in a day i used that youtube video count to predict if my downloads are going to be higher or lower today. Like one day i got 1500 views and another day i got 400 views. It was a very good way to prognose my download count.

    App Eggs seems like a scam company to me, I would get as far away from them as I could. I get spam email from them every time I launch a game offering those review services.

    Totally agree that it seems like a scam company. I was stupid enough to believe the email I got from AppEggs was authentic:

    Dear Needham Dynamics,

    I'm Sara, from AppEggs.com. AppEggs is one of most popular app review sites.

    Since 2011, over 1000+ developers have cooperated with us and 3500+ apps have been recommended to millions of visitors. 400+ apps have over 5,000,000 views via our video reviews.

    I'd love to review your app "SAT Vocab Master", and recommend it to our homepage. If you can introduce more about SAT Vocab Master ( e.g. unique selling points compared to other similar products ), we can also do video review.

    Could you send me the information as soon as possible?

    Best Regards,
    Sara
    I gave Sara an in-depth response (stupidly believing she would do the review for free!) explaining my concern that my app's UI & design were below-average (I'm not a designer). Her follow up made me extremely skeptical when she said my app "has extraordinary design features which deserve to be displayed in a video review. So people will view and like it more." and said the standard package costs $299.

    Can anyone confirm they got this same email (with their developer name / app name the only difference)? Just to see if they truly are mass-sending it to every developer.
