Lessons learnt from PhotoCalendar - Amazing entrepreneur story
This is the first part of the post Lessons learnt from PhotoCalendar, by co-founder and Sales/Marketing Head of Nuskha Labs.
We at Nuskha Labs always believed in creating simple things with minimalistic design and excellent User Experience.
PhotoCalendar (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/photocalendar-lite/id424081062?mt=8) is our first product on iTunes Store.
Our team consists of UI/UX designer and iOS Developers. So here are few good lessons we learnt about iTunes, Apple, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Greystripe, Taiwan, India and United States.
- Timing of the application release is as much important as Application itself
- iTunes and iOS users will greet your application open heartedly and you should always focus on user experience
-Apple Rejection can ruin your application timing , so always pre-validate your submissions
-Holiday seasons really matter your Sales (in quantity if Free application)
-United States is not the only iTunes Market you should focus on
-if your application has value , it will surely come as Top of the list
-if you don’t have proper monetizing strategy your Sales will be of no use
- Sharing on Twitter is something very unusual in general , Facebook rocks !!!
