Everyday thousands of new apps for Android are being developed and published. But only a few among them win the race. Marketing strategy is the secret behind every successful mobile application. Many people think that successful apps are downloaded millions of times just after launching without any effort by the developer. That’s not true. Every app should be promoted thousands of times in order to be a successful app. Best idea to promote an Android app is to submit it on various app promoting websites. It is also advisable to have some paid review of the app to maximize the visibility. There are thousands of app review and app promoting websites.
