[GUEST BLOG] In 2017, we announced the launch of Chloe in Japan, our goal based robo-advisor mobile app. Chloe is the first robo-advisor app in the world that constructs portfolios with exchange traded funds (ETFs) listed at the Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE). The portfolios are diversified across 50 countries, 37 industries and 4,324 stocks and bonds. The service is available both on iOS and Android and is the first robo-advisor in Japan available entirely on smartphones and tablets.

In tandem with a powerful PR outreach effort, we got to work immediately on setting up a formidable mobile user acquisition campaign to generate traction and to enable our target audience in Japan to take advantage of the new service.

Through that process, we developed a series of best practices which, some through trial and error, were important lessons to learn in marketing a finance app in Japan. (more…)

The slogan for Android by Google is “Be Together, Not the Same.” The clever catchphrase promotes unity and individuality in the same breath. But it’s more than a pithy statement. In fact, it just might be the perfect strategy to use to promote your Android app.

Approaching mobile app marketing using the motto, “If you build it, they will come” is the quickest route to experiencing underwhelming installation and engagement rates. By the time you’re ready to launch an app, you’ve sunk considerable resources and effort into the process. It behooves app marketers to do everything they can to ensure a healthy return on investment (ROI) so their endeavor is a success right off the bat and for the long haul.

What’s truly important is how people engage with your app after installation. In other words, continued post-install engagement is the true goal—one your mobile app marketing strategy must reflect for sustained success beyond initial installations. (more…)
