Amazon App Store: A Goldmine of Users
When I started working on App Store Optimization (ASO) of Programming Hero, the first mistake I made was, “only following Google PlayStore”. It’s true that Google PlayStore is the biggest but you’ve other options. Exploring the other options can easily get you more users. Besides, Google Play already has 2.87million apps that create tough competition. Amazon App Store is very underrated and a platform with more users and fewer apps. There are also some extra benefits Amazon App Store offers, that’s why I decided to work on publishing our app on Amazon App Store. Give a read and I think you’ll find the reasons enough reasonable.
Google Play Store has 2.87 million apps — Amazon App Store has 455,873 apps.
Google Play has a 6.4 times higher number of apps than the Amazon App Store
Fewer apps mean less competition. And less competition drives you to better ASO(App Store Optimization). Amazon AppStore is less crowded that can give you a better chance to reach your targeted audience. Marketing your app is much easier in Amazon App Store. Applying the same effort, you can get more responses comparing to other platforms.
If I give you an option of choosing from $5 or $7, what amount you think you're going to pick?
Obviously $7, I know you’ll say that.
Amazon’s unique monetization programs boost customer spending by offering discounts on apps and games without eating into your revenue share. Registering for a developer account is FREE and there are no hidden fees.
Amazon’s monetization system is comparatively better than other competitors. That means you can have more money with the same effort. Even they did more marketing than other competitors for selling your app, that is something your app need to grow continuously.
