Mobile app marketing calendar

mobile-app-marketing-calendarThe App Store is extremely seasonal. Every year you see not only trends repeating but also themes being applied. Apps are part of our lives and an easy way to engage a user is by leveraging what's going on outside of the App Store. For this reason having a mobile app marketing calendar is essential to stay on track. 

Way too many times, as an app publisher, I found myself whiting I and remember in advance it was going to be a specific holiday or social event so I could leverage it generate more downloads and make more money from the App Store. This is the mobile app marketing calendar I use for myself and I'm sure you will also find it very useful.

Although the vast majority of these events happen every year, they might not always fall on the same day. For this reason, it will start from now, February 2014. Go through it, note the ones relevant for your apps and set reminders… now! :)
