Likely on mobile apps, the implemented improvements can have a pivotal impact on conversions rates.

How being too cautious can stop the creative flow
One of the most important features of a marketing campaign is to generate dynamic content and to have a good blend of elements. The goal is to increase the app’s popularity and capitalize on image. So, here’s what developers should pay attention to when conversion rates are poor. There are a few things that could destroy a marketing campaign.
1. Outdated App Store Optimization
A reduced conversion might be caused by an outdated metadata apps. The advice is to update the apps at least once a month. The key elements are the title, keywords, main description, short description (Google Play) and a Promotional Text (iOS). Keeping an eye on these elements might be critical for conversions rate. The updates of them help the users get a more complex experience and obtain useful and reliable information to make the purchase.
The changes don’t have immediate impact. They should be monitored during a couple of weeks for having a good image of their performance.
2. The lack of creative elements in developing the app.
There’s not only about a good functioning, but about the colors, fonts and icons. That’s why a creative design can dramatically improve conversion rates and we use to say that even a small change in this area can influence the number of purchases. The aspect should be original, useful and engaging. It also matters have easy the consumer understands the apps’ functionalities at a glimpse and the purpose of the app.

Search Ads allow developers to target customers by bidding on keywords to range their paid ad in first positions of browsers, increasing the app’s popularity against other similar services in the market.
There are also tools like Google AdWords Universal Ad Campaign (UAC)that allow promotions on its various connected platforms such as Google Search, Google Display Network (GDN), YouTube, and the Google Play Store.

5. Neglect retargeting potential users
The clients that once you’ve contacted but you haven’t succeeded in converting them should not be completely ignored. They might get to you eventually. Maybe your first strategy was wrong and it might be helpful to try new method
6. Forgetting about good and inspiring added content
Good and inspiring content for your target audience might have a good reward at the end of the day. It works like a good incentive for users to get engaged with the app. So, in the end, it might get you what you want: increased conversions. Hint: e-books, tips and extra-tools offered freely.
7. Dramatic cost haircut
