Very exciting news this month: My first iPhone app (“Sales Calls On Fire”) the weekend of March 11th elbowed its way into the #8 position in the App Store Business Category. It’s now steady in the top 200 in the iPhone “business” section and surging here and there popping into the top 100.
This is like watching your book climb in the Amazon rankings. I labored over the app (with superb help from JacApps doing the programming and many beta testers) for many months, whipping it into shape and waiting for the Apples approval to dive into the wonderful new world of app sales that has exploded like five hundred sticks of dynamite .
And, as always, now it’s up to the public to decide, by downloading and using Sales Calls On Fire. The public will say if it’s worthwhile or not. A little scary, a little thrilling, a lot of fun for a marketer and sales guy who has loved being in control of the marketing my own stuff, in my own crazy way, now at the mercy of Apple and the public.
Now, as satisfying as it is to read the great buzz-comments on the App Store page (and in social media and the app review sites) for this new app… it’s even more energizing to have finally busted my cherry in app development and app marketing. This first app took a while to finish and launched. The Android version will follow a lot faster, and the next app blazingly fast because the ideas are flowing like water over Niagara Falls.
If you’re in sales (and who’s not), you can check out the App (or even, gasp, buy it) Here
If you do buy it, leave a review, too. And share it with your fellow colleagues in sales. The app is getting rave reviews, which makes sense since it’s a hell of a lot easier to use than most of the damn CRM tools. This is street-tested stuff, by hardened sales pros.
Hope you enjoy it, if you buy it. Hope you stay awake all night thinking about it if you don’t buy it, and feel compelled to buy it first thing in the morning. Cuz it’s damn cheap, and you really SHOULD have it on your iPhone. (And yes, we’ll be offering a Android version down the road, in fact I have a meeting tomorrow with start the Android development.)
