As we all know, getting spot on Google Play is tough, very tough, so we need to cooperate if we want to make our apps popular. That´s why i would like to propose some kind of system of based on exchange of impression. The idea is simple: When somebody is launching a new app, he/she “borrows” certain amount of impressions from other developers that he/she will eventually pay back (when requested by the other developer)(if possible). A good initial push may be that extra help that could make a good app reach the rankings. The impression could be banners or interstitial ads created as house ads with admob (Can somebody suggest alternatives?). It is an easy way to track an provide evidence for the impressions borrowed.
Lets make 2 things clear right away:
This system is based on trust. I think we all are honorable people, so we can trust on each other. We are also intelligent an prudent enough to decide if somebody may not be trustworthy.
This is a small help, complementary to many other marketing and promotion efforts needed for success.
As i am launching a new app the 24th of July, i would like to offer myself as the starter of this project. The idea is that i could gather 1.000.000 impressions (hopefully that will be translated into 5000 downloads) for the first week. I am talking about banner ads with 45s refresh rate.
I can assign as beta tester to somebody who is really interested on this and want to assess the quality of the app, hence the risk of no being able to pay back. Let me tell you that i am working full time on this, for the last 7 months, and i am planning to launch 1 more game this year and 4 more games the next ones.
Please let me know if somebody is interested in exchanging impressions with me (batches of 100.000 impressions min),
Or you can make your own deals as well of course.
