When we built Kindred App we used a few things:

  1. SEO – Search metrics – awesome for web content and working on app content + make sure your apps are indexed well (Branch does that)
  2. Attribution – Branch
  3. Analytics – MixPanel
  4. E-mail – MailChimp

seo – google search. find how you can beat your competitors by building a better product.

aso – searchman.com and appstore search (build a product people want and find how you can build a better product than your competitors)

attribution – branch

analytics – mixpanel, google analytics

e-mail – sendgrid with dedicated IP.

make it sure you have optimized your website -> email newsletter flow. lots to be done there and that’s important for growth.

Thank you for all the amazing advice. I especially like the chart from Andy’s Carvel’s blog and I wanted to share his latest “revised” marketing stack.

I took a look at Branch and I’m impressed with all the features they offer. We’re really keen on the smart banner and deep linking though to install. After poking around, I found their YouTube channel, here. It has a lot of their Meetup recordings and walk-through guide on implementing several features.
