Apps can succeed when they serve a niche audience. Starting with small target can be your key to success and result in massive benefits.
Case Study: Effectiveness of Hyper-Targeting
The Lulu app for Android and iPhone gives women a virtual “brunch table” to share good word about men they know or have seen romantically.
Instead of targeting all women, Lulu released the app and marketed it to women on in two college campuses i.e., Florida State University and the University of Florida. It resulted in 60,000 downloads along with plenty of data usage, helping inform the Lulu’s future product iterations.
Lessons in Hyper-Targeting for Your App
1. Start Small
Widespread discovery remains a challenge for many apps. But spending a huge amount on new app for niche can be counted as misuse of funds. So, start small and grow your presence once you understand app usage patterns.
2. Start Young
Consider who your demographic will be in two to four years and target its members, as they’ll be your very own word-of-mouth marketing team. Since Lulu wanted all dating women to use as well as share the app, they targeted future young professionals at large state universities where the girls would graduate, will separate to make their career, and maintain contact with old people through the app.
3. Launch and Learn
Many companies have a hard time launching their minimum viable product. They suffer from the fear whether people will download or like their app as it is. In his situation, Lulu did what more apps should do: launch and learn. Let your users describe about your product through app store reviews and usage data.
