I just recently launched an app and trying to get my first 1000 users – best practices please ?
Hey! I will share my personal experience with Partiko.
We have around 20000 Downloads and we got starting 1000 Downloads in just 1 month.
Just follow following Strategy:
-Launch a beta version and ask all your friends,relatives and family members to use that as personal network gives a decent push in starting.
-Submit your app to different testers and magzines.
-You can also run College Ambassador Programs to get decent reach. We personally did the same, and succeeded.
-ASO is vital too! We are an event discovery platform thats why we went for keywords and phrases like ” Events in Delhi”, “Delhi Events” , “Events in Delhi NCR” and so on which helped us to get some organic downloads as well.

If you want, I can help you out with the strategy making as well. You can reach me at [email protected]

Don’t forget about beta testing. Play Market has a straightforward beta testing process: FAQ
In this case, your beta testers will become your first users and you will get early feedback from them.
There are several different places, where you can get beta testers, such as http://www.testingcatalog.com, which is integrated with a big community of beta testers in google+
Although gaining users is important, retaining those users is arguably much more essential to your app’s success. If you gain 1000 users, but don’t have any strategies implemented to retain those users, they will bounce and you’ll lose them all. A company called Pyze offers a free tool to put your app’s growth on auto-pilot and helps you retain users more efficiently.

In addition to those great tip, you can buy Android US Keyword install and reviews install, i personally use this service KeyApp.top – Android keywords promotion
