Mobile application market research tools
Mobile application market research tools as part of ASOMobile mobile analytics.
💡 New ideas, products, and services appear every day, but many fail because the market entry process has not been properly researched. Marketing research helps ensure that a product launch touches the "right buttons" of the consumer and ensures that the product idea itself meets the (often unspoken) customer desires.

Conduct marketing research before starting a new product! 🔍 This research will form the basis for all other phases of your product launch plan, including your marketing strategy.
Working with developers of mobile applications, we often encounter a situation of “blind love” for our project. This is especially true for indie developers. “This is a unique application, this is a new niche in the market, no one else has such a story ...” - many guys who are just starting their business are sure. And the opposite situation: experienced game companies know for sure that building a product without market research is a bad idea. After all, you can create the 51 clones of Brawl Stars, but is it really possible to make money on such an application? You will learn about this only after conducting at least minimal market research.
