Here is my new app, BYOB. I don't know if the copy of my app listing is bad or the design is not attractive. No one is installing at all. Can you give me some feedback?
Julie here from Shopify Support.
First of all, congratulations on publishing your app in the Shopify App Store! I think you've done a great job with your listing and I love the consistent colours you've used. I also really like how you've added headers in your app description, making it easy for merchants to get a good understanding of your app.
Just like starting any business, it can be a challenge to get your first few installs. We have put together some resources on app development in the Shopify Partners Blog that should help, though!
I recommend checking out our blog post, "How to Get More App Downloads in the Shopify App Store", which includes advice on how to optimize your app listing, market your app to merchants, and how to support merchants after they download your app. This is quite a comprehensive post and there's a ton of information I'm sure you'll find helpful.
You can also consider running ads on the Shopify App Store to promote your new app; Shopify App Store ads are a relatively new feature and we're even offering partners $100 USD credit towards ads. You can learn more about to launch ads and claim your credit here.
Lastly, it can be really useful to gain advice from partners who are currently managing successful apps. In our blog post, "A Step-by-Step Guide on How we Optimized our App Listing in the Shopify App Store", we learn about Shippo's experience launching their app in the Shopify App Store and how they managed to optimize their listing. Shippo is a really popular shipping app and there's quite a lot to learn from their developers in this post.
It can definitely take some time to generate some installs, but don't get discouraged! You've done some great work so far, so now it's just a matter of optimizing your listing and marketing your app to the right merchants.
I hope this helps guide you in the right direction and I'd love to hear your thoughts on these posts.
