Case Study: Heroes Jobs

Heroes Jobs is an innovative app looking to make it in the job search market by connecting recruiters and job applicants using the power of video, rather than using old-fashioned resumes. The app hopes to prove that in the modern world finding a job is nothing harder than making a short video about yourselfand finding the right culture fit quickly. The app is available for both Android and iOS.


Our client’s short-term goal was to dominate San Francisco and the Bay Area by providing attractive jobs to a Gen Z target audience.

The App Growth Network Approach:

AGN’s specialty is ASO and that’s exactly how we planned to achieve our marketing goals over the span of few months. To start with, we conducted an extensive audit, gathering around 300 general, brand and industry related keywords. We used our internal systematic process of narrowing down to top 30 keywords that most align with Heroes Job’s brand message.

Of course having great keywords is not enough, and to maximize our ASO efforts we also had to monitor other variables like:

Download velocity
Keep to bi-weekly metadata updates
Reviews & ratings
App Store CVR funnel
