Are single-page sites an effective marketing tool for iPhone apps?

I’m not sure, but I’d like to find out! A few cursory Google searches didn’t come up with much in the way of answers.

As part of my quest to increase app revenue and marketing efforts, I have created a new home for Bug Tracker. It now lives at, thanks to a handy WordPress Template from Apptamin. I will probably tweak the design and the content in the future, but for now, it’s good enough.

I would like to find out if this type of marketing can result in improved sales numbers.¬†Given that domains are reasonably cheap, and hosting additional ones with my current hosting provider doesn’t cost anything, it seems like a relatively risk-free idea. It also gives me some more practice with SEO – something I seriously need to need to improve on.

Unfortunately, there’s no way to know for sure whether a sale came from the website or from some other method (searching in iTunes, etc.), but at the very least I can keep track of clicks on the ‘Available in the App Store’ button.

In addition to Bug Tracker, I will probably put up another website or two for some of my older apps, such as 20 Rep Squats and Which Episode, to see if I can get a before/after split on sales numbers.

What else are you guys doing to market your apps?
