As you know, with 250,000 apps available in various app stores, discoverability and awareness are major hurdles facing developers.

That is why today one of MobileBeat 2009’s event partners VSC, announced AppLaunchPR, a new guerilla marketing, PR and social media service focused on the needs of app developers.

The practice will focus on launch but also importantly, pre-launch activities such as product development feedback, focus groups, market research and viral video creation.

The service ventures beyond PR into social media marketing, mobile ad spend recommendations, viral video creation, focus groups and of course media relations.[..]

“The days of relying on carriers or major distributors for marketing are gone. The most successful apps are built by small teams who create highly interactive applications, but need major marketing and PR muscle to get recognized,” said Vijay Chattha, Chief Talker of VSC’s AppLaunchPR division. “We’ve seen the dramatic impact that the right marketing program can have on individual apps and it’s often cited as the difference between success and failure.”
