Yes, you got it right. There is no alternate solution to build a great app. No matter how popular you can make your app, if it is not useful, it will soon be rejected by the users. Simply, build a great app and then only think of applying the other marketing techniques. Make the app quite clean and user friendly. It should also contain a good description and interesting screenshots.

Correct the release date

Whenever you submit your app to an app store, it assumes the submission date as the release date. Later, when the app is accepted and released, you should better change the date to the correct one. It will bring more visitors to the app page, due to its visibility in the new release apps page.

    I’m really surprised at how uncommon it is for developers to “engineer” some reviews of their android and iOS apps. Truly, having a good number of positive reviews is absolutely critical to getting one’s foot in the door, so to speak, and get app sales snowballing.
