I want to help get your tarot deck's in front of thousands more potential customers!
My background is iphone/ipad app's. I've written a few tarot apps and now I am making an app which can be used for tarot deck promotion.
I have some ideas but before I go too far I want to find out what you would like to see in an app like this.
For example, I could use the gc web service api to extract all your deck data ready for submission to the app. Once published it could have a link back to your gc page for purchase.
If you have time I'm putting together a clickable mockup and a survey to fill in. It would be great to meet and discuss on skype but really whatever suits you is fine with me.
I'm looking forward to hearing from some passionate crafters!
Although my Tarot deck is mainly designed for game playing, I would be receptive to people using it for card readings if I'm assuming correctly is the purpose of your Tarot apps. I find a lot of reproduction decks currently pubished for readings were initially intended for the Tarot trick taking games. Trionfi: Tarot Playing Cards is partially influenced by such decks. https://www.thegamecrafter.com/games/trionfi-blue-back-
Im half way through developing the app so id love your feedback and ideas now about what you would like it to do and then again if you could look at some initial versions and give feedback on those.
Please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know what types of mobile devices you have.
This is roughly how I see it working
*Keep in mind that apple will take 30% & I will also take a similar commission. If you make it free you will get LOTS of downloads and it may work as a good marketing tool for your gc deck.
Nothing is set in stone right now so please put out your wild outlandish and crazy ideas and we can make sure it is a tool that really helps you sell lots of decks!
It doesn't have to be Tarot per se. It could also be Oracle or any other divinatory cards.
To give you some idea of the exposure I think this could give your deck.
2 years ago I released a free tarot app on the iphone only. It was downloaded 16,000 times in the first week and then averaged out at 100 a day. I didn't spend a penny on promoting it cause I wasn't monetising it.
This free tarot app will be released on iphone, ipad, android phones, android tablets on the iOS AppStore, Google Play & the Amazon AppStore. This app will also be promoted as I'm monetising it.
So hopefully a massive spike at launch and then averaging out to around 300 downloads a day across all the platforms.
are you offering the option of monetizing the app? is there a cost to develop the app, or is is just a 3 way split with Apple, you and me? I know of several tarot deck creators who would be interested in monitized apps. Cheers Roxi
