If you are planning to create an Android app you need to know that simply creating your app is not enough, you need to ensure that you are fully prepared to carry out at least the basic steps of progressing your app to be in for a chance of any kind of app success.

What are the steps required to progress my app?
There are numerous things that you can do to help your Android app be a success. However, in order to ensure that the basic steps are completed, you should follow these 5 stages which appear in your App success progress monitor.
1. Create an Android app – This is a little bit of common sense, the first step in making sure that you have a successful app is making sure that you have an app in the first place. To create an Android app you need to have an app idea and we recommend that you have a business and marketing plan too.
2. Publish your app to Google Play – Not everyone wants to publish their app because they are worried that the app will not succeed. Let me tell you a little secret, if you don’t publish your app to the Google play store then your app will definitely not succeed because this app store, although not the only Android app store out there, it is the default app store for many, if not most Android app devices. The first place people will look to purchase or download apps is through the Google Play store.
3. Edit and update your app – If you want to impress your audience you need to be showing that you are up to date with your app and that you haven’t forgotten its existence. Updating the app, which does not need to be weekly, or even monthly, gives your audience the impression that your app is relevant and well maintained.
4. Send pop-up notifications – One of the biggest problems you will need to overcome is getting your audience to use your app after they have downloaded it. If an app is downloaded and then deleted you will lose rankings in the Google Play store, but this also applies to apps that have been downloaded and are not in use. To encourage users to interact with the app try sending push notifications.
5. Create more apps for your app empire – Many people will look at you as an app developer and view your app empire before they take the plunge and purchase (even if its free) and download your app. It’s true, even when the app is free, people still look at the other apps in your developer profile to see if you look like a professional app maker. An app maker with more than 7 apps has been proven to be more that ten times more successful.
