Market Your App Through Social Media
Speaker: Dom Sagolla
Marketing your app is usually a second thought to most developers and designers, but it takes a community of people to market an app using social media. As a co-creator of Twitter, and author of the upcoming book "140 Characters: A Style Guide for the Short Form", Dom Sagolla will describe a unique approach to marketing software.
The story of @TheBook and @BookApp is a tale of Twitter and social media success that trails two iTunes Staff Favorites: iPhone apps Big Words and Math Cards. Drawing upon experience helping to create the Obama '08 iPhone App last year, Dom will share how his company DollarApp is the simplest model for building a business one app at a time.
