How Rank Correlates to Sales: Top 50 means 1000 Sales per Day
Infomedia is the developer of iFart Mobile, an iPhone app that you can use to make farting noises. In just over a week of sales, iFart has done very well, going from #70 within the Entertainment section to becoming the 4th most popular app overall! Two days ago, Joel Comm (a popular Internet marketing expert in his own right) of Infomedia shared the sales figures for iFart along with the rankings. Then today he followed up with extra figures for today and yesterday.
Focusing solely on the ranking within the Entertainment category (see the blog posts above for more detailed info), the results are:
|Date||Rank in Entertainment||Daily Sales|
Currently the border in rankings necessary to reach 1000 sales per day is between 76th and 39th overall in the App Store going off of Joel’s extended numbers so, roughly but considering the distribution, apps at #50 or above are probably selling 1000 units per day or more.
As an aside: As a 99 cent app and after Apple’s 30% commission, this means iFart has raked in $13,205 for Infomedia over 9 days.
