How does it work?
Once integrated, your users gain the ability to send multiple invites to their mobile contacts effortlessly
from within your app: AGE's mobile intelligence qualifies users' app-compatible friends
by scanning the numbers stored in their phone books and presenting only relevant matches.
AGE then pre-populates invitation messages with your app's title and link for immediate download,
making sharing easy and accurate. Harnessing user phone books,
your app will grow virally across social circles and reach untapped demographics.
What is App Growth Engine (AGE)?
With conversion powers three times greater than traditional acquisition services,
AGE is a unique social invitation engine and an easy choice
for developers and mobile marketers who want to generate new users,
cut acquisition costs, and gain insight into the new app economy.
Available as a fully customizable SDK or quick plug-in for native iOS and Android,
AGE offers developers an array of features to improve their app, including:
- Mobile user verification
- Custom short domains
- Multi-message templates
- Performance analytics
- Easy-to-use dashboard to centrally manage and track apps
How does AGE compare?
With a 98 percent response rate, SMS greatly exceeds popular social platforms such as Facebook,
Twitter, and email, in the potential for delivering invitations straight to consumers' hands.
Basic SMS services can fall short of helping your app reach its revenue and user base potential
by being impractical and tedious.
Our AGE enhances SMS' potential by increasing efficiency and reach for
developers with our custom tool suite. With pre-populated invitation fields
and analytic features showing app-compatible friends, AGE
- offers an ideal user experience
- eliminates tedious typing
- reduces wasteful invitations
- speeds up the invitation process and
- lowers acquisition costs from dollars to pennies per new user!
Developers can choose between native SMS or long-code 'virtual number'
to deliver invites and meet their app and user experience needs.
Social networks like Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ enable users to broadcast information easily using news feeds,
tweets and status updates. But most connections on Facebook are weak social ties
and with 100,000 tweets and 685,000 Facebook posts every minute,
people have few incentives to read and respond to messages about your app.
In fact, up to 85 percent of posted content on social networks are just ignored.
AGE will help your invites get read by using narrowcast marketing to draw on strong social ties.
Because AGE uses mobile contact lists to target recipients,
users will only share your app with people they already know and influence.
And research consistently shows that word-of-mouth from friends,
neighbors and relatives ranks high as purchase influence,
helping you monetize your users social capital.
AGE is not meant to replace traditional social media strategies but to augment and enhance your marketing strategy.
Nine out of every ten emails go unopened;
it's easy to miss one when consumers access email on multiple devices every day,
new messages quickly displace old ones in view, and spam filters are hard at work.
As if that wasn't enough, keeping up-to-date with changing email addresses requires more time than most of us have,
so invites sent via email may not arrive at the target destination at all.
When you use AGE, it is impossible for users to miss messages that share your app:
our technology delivers a potent call-to-action straight to consumer screens and
its superior device intelligence ensures messages actually get to the right person.
AGE not only leverages social capital but also
enriches the social gaming experience without conflict to your game center services.
With AGE, users can invite new friends to join the game or identify
and connect with those who have already installed your app for immediate game play.
This friend-to-friend connection will allow you to promote deeper levels of engagement for users
and when they win, you win: happy gamers are more likely to share the joy with their friends.
Whether on a social or game center network, our tool can track active users across platforms
and from app to app, giving developers valuable insights on user behavior to improve their products.
Making money with a free mobile app requires a consistent source of click-throughs on ads displayed within your app.
AGE can boost the number of your click-throughs with crowd-source referrals that
provide an engaging virtual environment for your users. When family, friends, and colleagues join,
your app becomes a community people can love and recommend to their friends.
That is how AGE offers new installs, often costing 20 times less per acquired user,
and magnifies your app's K-factor.
