DN pointed out to me that RIM slipped a little bit extra information in the previous tips we mentioned earlier today for developers to maximize their profits on App World. For awhile there has been a sort of unofficial way to submit your apps for consideration for RIM’s App World featured carousel. Now they have more or less made one of them official in their previous blog post. It seems like you need to pitch RIM by following the instructions below and providing the correct information. Not a bad deal though I wish it was more streamlined and merit/potential based:
BlackBerry App World Promotion Opportunities
There are many opportunities for promoting great apps or content items on the BlackBerry App World storefront. All you need to do is submit a proposal including specifics on why your app is great, what you are doing to promote your app, and which countries and device models should be targeted in the promotional campaign. Submit your proposal today to [email protected].
Please verify you have provided the following assets and information so your app is ready to be featured if/when the time comes:
- Feature Image for your app (1920×1186.PNG) is uploaded on the BlackBerry App World vendor portal.
- Feature Description (50 characters max) of your app is uploaded on the BlackBerry App World vendor portal in every language your app supports (e.g. if your app supports EFIGS languages, please provide feature descriptions in all 5 languages)
- Illustrate that you are using the “Get it At BlackBerry App World” logo on your Web properties and linking it back to your app on BlackBerry App World – if you require this logo, or logos in other languages, please contact [email protected].
