  • Creating an email signature that features a link to your landing page for all employees to use, may result in acquiring new leads from people already somehow involved in day-to-day dealings with your company.
  • With a newsletter subscription box featured on your landing page or the company webpage, your potential users can opt-in for the marketing communication regarding your mobile app even before it is released. Sending occasional updates, and most importantly, a link to download your app when it launches is an awesome way to ensure additional downloads, reviews, and ratings on day one.
  • Consider giving something in return for the emails you’re collecting. It can be an e-book related to your app’s purpose, a trial period for a premium version, or a free timed subscription.
  • Use email to stay in touch with your users and show that you care about them and the product you’re making. Depending on what your mobile app is capable of, your arsenal of newsletter topics will vary, but you should contemplate sending out news on app updates, as well as personal app usage statistics, personalized offers, and feedback surveys.
