How do you promote my app?
We have created an SDK for Android apps and games that gained great popularity. Apps and games that use our AppBrain SDK can promote your Android app to users around the world. Here are some stats for our network:

Optional automatic optimizationOur algorithms extend your Android app marketing campaign with internationalized titles and subtitles to convert even more users.
Use the best performing ads
We advertise your Android app or game on banners and app walls. We promote all apps and games on Google Play; this means that as a result of your Android app promotion campaign, the download number on Google Play increases. This may, in turn, lead to more organic app installs. The creative assets for your campaign are automatically generated from your app's Google Play icon and the title and subtitle you want to use.
Our ad system ranks ads from different advertisers based on the cost-per-install bids and the conversion rate. If your app has a great conversion rate, then your Android app promotion campaign on AppBrain runs better. This means that the installs are cheaper, or that you get your installs faster. This also means that a well-optimized app store placement benefits your APpBrain campaign. If our users see an attractive page about your app in Google Play, the chance they install your app is higher, and you are rewarded by a lower cost-per-install. Therefore we recommend you to perform App Store Optimization (ASO) before you promote your Android app on AppBrain.
Monitor with real-time reporting
Great reporting is essential to optimize your campaign. Our real-time campaign reports are crystal clear and easy to analyze.

The country report lets you compare the effectiveness and costs in different regions.
This overview shows all individual installs for your campaign with data like country, phone model and cost.
Improve campaigns automatically
We know you don't have the time to check your campaign ten times per day. Therefore we have smart algorithms that can optimize your campaign for you.
Our targeting algorithms automatically learn which users are most likely to install your app. After your campaign has generated some initial installs, our algorithm promotes your app to the most engaged users. These users have more app launches and longer retention. We're aiming to be on par with organic installs. This ensures long-term success for your marketing efforts.
Optionally, you can also allow AppBrain's algorithms to download additional titles and subtitles for your campaign's most important languages and disable titles that are not performing well. This can increase your conversion rates significantly.

Learn more from the frequently asked questions
Do I have to pay if a user clicks on my app and does not install it?
No, AppBrain uses pay-per-download pricing for your Android app promotion. You only pay for a successful download from the Android market and subsequent installation on the users' phone. No matter how many impressions or clicks this takes.
How are the installs priced?
You set the maximum amount you are willing to pay per install when you set up your app promotion campaign. An auction-based system then calculates what the install costs based on bids put in by other advertisers. The minimum bid for Android app promotion depends on the country and starts at $0.05 per install. We have a statistics page with the current CPI prices per country.
How can I manage my budget?
You can set the limit how much you are willing to spend per day on your campaign, with a $25 minimum. You can set the maximum cost per install. The minimum initial budget is $100.
Do I need to modify my app for you to be able to promote it? Do I have to include an SDK into my app?
Apart from setting up your campaign, our system doesn't require any work: no modifications, no SDKs.
How do I get started?
Please sign up with an AppBrain account and get access to the dashboard. From there you can start your campaign by clicking "Promote" next to one of your apps.
How can I track the installs?
First, you can track the installs on our real-time dashboard. Our installs are directly from the Google app store. Therefore the download numbers increase in the Google Play dashboard as well. If you have Google Analytics built into your app, the devices that support it send "appbrain" as the source and "promoted" as the medium.
How will I be charged for my campaigns?
All campaigns are charged from a budget that you need to pre-pay. On the dashboard, you can easily prepay budget by PayPal, or you can contact us if you prefer other options or need assistance. If you're not satisfied with our system, we refund you any remaining balance.
What apps are eligible for the app promotion?
An app can be promoted if it is free, has at least 4 ratings in the Android Market and an average rating of 3.25 or higher. By app we also mean game, so AppBrain is also an Android game promotion platform.
AppBrain is built by AppTornado GmbH, a startup with offices in Switzerland and the Netherlands led by two ex-Google engineers.
After developing the AppBrain App Market application for Android (79068 ratings, average 4.37 stars), AppBrain's mission today is to make Android developers successful.
