It’s been a month and a half since I started attempting to rebuild my Always Taeyeon userbase, and the results have been…non-existent. I converted about 5-10 users, and I’m not even sure if those are converted users or new users that saw my posts on Tumblr/Google+ etc! This has been pretty much a failure given that I still have 100+ DAU. There’s just no motivation to download APKs and install them (with good reason, because there is so much potential for malware).
That just goes to show if you’re not on Google Play (or perhaps some other mainstream app stores), then you’re not going to be able to get traction with users.
