Banner Promotion

Banners can promote your apps (individual apps, collections of apps, and your entire product line) and increase daily downloads by 4 to 5 times

You can request banner promotion of 1 or more of your Android apps, Gear apps, or Theme products.  Apps and products that meet selection criteria can be promoted via banners, which typically run for 2 weeks, but can run longer.

For details about how banners are used, see Android App Promotion, Gear App Promotion, and Theme Product Promotion.

After you submit a banner promotion request for 1 or more of your apps or your entire product line, Samsung will evaluate your apps to determine whether banner promotion is well-suited based on the following:

  • Global gross sales for all of your apps
  • Total number of recent app product detail page visits
  • Percentage of app downloads out of total detail page visits
  • Total recent revenue for paid-for apps or apps with in-app items
  • Editorial app review 

 

To request banner promotion for your apps or product line:

  1. Determine what you want to promote by banner:
  • Android apps: Edge panel apps, or Android apps that integrate the IAP SDK or 1 or more Galaxy SDKs
  • Gear apps:  Gear watch face apps or Gear apps
  • Theme apps: themes, wallpapers, icon packs, or AOD screens
  • 1 individual app, a content set (more than 1 app), or your entire product line of apps

Your banner request will be evaluated.
If evaluation indicates that banner promotion is not best suited for your apps, we will notify you.
If evaluation indicates that banner promotion is well-suited:

  • We will discuss with you the details of a banner promotion plan.
  • For Gear app promotion, you will design and submit a banner image.
  • For Android app and Theme app promotion, you can submit graphic images that Samsung technicians may use when they design your banner image.

If your banner promotion request is granted, your apps will be promoted according to the banner promotion plan.
