Promote your apps
App install campaigns, promotional codes, sale pricing, and much more – our platform provides the features you need to grow your customer base and gain traction in the market.
Create a directive-driven ad campaign to get the word out about your app, right from your Dev Center dashboard. Our platform uses machine learning algorithms to maximize the cost-per-install for your campaigns.
These campaigns will run ads in any other app that matches your app’s device and category. You can also choose a universal campaign, where the ads will also appear within MSN.com, Outlook.com, Skype, and other Microsoft premium properties.
These campaigns will run ads only in your other apps, free of charge.
These campaigns will run ads in apps published by other developers who also participate in community ad campaigns, free of charge.
We offer a wide variety of ad experiences for you to drive user acquisition and engagement in your ad campaigns.
Banner ads use a portion of the app’s real estate. Banner interstitial ads are full-screen ads that grab the complete attention of users.
Playable ads provide a new way for users to interact with ads for your app. When a user clicks a playable ad, they can stream your app for three minutes as if it is installed on their device. At the end of the streaming session, the user can click on a link to install your app.
Native ads enable you to send all the individual components of your ad (such as the image, title, and description) to the receiving app. The app stitches these components together to provide a native experience for the user.

Let customers know your app is in the Store with a custom badge in the style and language of your choice.
You can add custom tracking codes into links to your app’s Store listing to find out which channels are driving the most downloads for customers on Windows 10.
