Taurus clears the road ahead for App developers heading to market

In this environment, competition is fierce. You have an idea but you want it to stand out from the crowd. The challenge is to differentiate and build a sustainable business model.
Taurus AppLauncher advises you on every aspect of launching your App – what you should be doing, how to do it, the shortcuts, what works and what to avoid.
We have used our TaurusAppLauncher™ precision to create successful campaigns for a range of App entrepreneurs including Appster, Six8, 2Hats, LASHDband MyMobile.
Faced with escalating demands including technical development, launch deadlines and limited resources to generate the downloads necessary to achieve key performance indicators (KPIs), creating a truly commercial offering can get pushed down the agenda.
At the same time, the ability to create a sustainable financed business model, memorable brand and to reach customers, supporters, influencers and ambassadors has never been more vital for App developers to prioritise.
From market research to trademarks and financial models, App developers want to know where to begin. Our solution is to work directly with you to answer the question ‘Where do we start?’. For some, this means putting a plan in place, or planning a launch. For others, it’s defining the brand identity or financed modelling.
It may be to create influencer and direct marketing programs, or run a messaging and positioning session to get your team to ensure your processes and goals are aligned.
Our senior consultants work with you from scratch, guiding you through the most cost effective and time effective process, to ensure your App is positioned for launch.

Feedback from our Clients
WebCentral, Manager of Corporate Communications, Monique Roberts“As a team, Taurus and WebCentral punch well above our weight! With Taurus, we’ve never been just another client. They work tirelessly to bring us the best opportunities and always have our interests at heart. I’m thrilled with the help and results we get from Taurus.” From day one Taurus came 100% on board behind WebCentral’s objectives and strategy. We are a fast-growing company so the top tier coverage we’re getting in media like The Australian’s IT section is important to us in the market, and proves our messages are relevant. Working with Taurus has completely changed my previous perceptions of just what an agency can do for us.”
Miller Heima, GM, Martin Sparkes“Sharon recently spoke at our annual Sales Performance Summit around Social media and “A New Age for Sales”. She is clearly an expert in this field and spoke passionately about the subject which is certainly still new to Sales People in a complex B2B sales environment. Her presentation opened many eyes to what sales people could, and should be doing more of. An incredible number of participants commented after the session they will update their LinkedIn profile first thing tomorrow! I hope they do, meaning Sharon helped make a behavioural change.”
Bible Society CEO, Daniel Willis“Both Taurus’ team and our team here at Bible Society worked hand in glove, daily, to bring about the overall objectives. It’s been a very good relationship. We rolled out a daily program on Twitter to engage people and we picked up a Facebook fan following, and again we looked at feeding that daily with comments and information so that people could respond to the campaign. As a result of that, today we’ve got something like 25,000 regular users on that Facebook page and they constantly engage with the ongoing aspects of Jesus – All About Life.”
Ansarada, Managing Director, Sam Riley“Taurus provides PR that is very strategic and brilliantly executed. It is exactly the PR that resonates well with the bankers and lawyers who are our potential clients.”
Hewsons, CEO, Richard Hewson“Taurus' ability to open doors in the media is excellent; we are now quoted as an authority in tier one publications. A major strength of Taurus' is their Strategic Messaging product. Becoming clear on our messages has been a key step in communicating effectively with our market.”
Former KAZ Group, General Manager, Marketing & Communications, Kevin Ryder"Taurus Marketing Services is more than a marketing agency, they are a support mechanism that totally underpins our marketing department. After seven years of working with us they still deliver work of the highest standard on time every time. As a large company in the public eye, our expectations are high and we expect ROI. Taurus understand our business and consistently impress us with the results they achieve."
University of Sydney Student, Fei“I had the opportunity to see Sharon Williams speak as a guest lecturer at Sydney university. Immediately, I was impressed by her engaging speaking style which drew everyone’s attention. Her talk mainly focused on marketing and brand reputation, both topics that are very relevant to me. After hearing Sharon’s advice on how to maximise our brand image, I’ve made some adjustments to my own approach and I’ve only received positive results. Thank you Sharon!”
MPower, Managing Director, Paul Sharp“The Taurus team listened, heard us, formed their opinions, were very professional and delivered what they said they would deliver. It was this project that resulted in the step change in revenue in excess of 20% over a year and half since the re-branding exercise.”
Osteoporosis Australia, CEO, Judy Stenmark"We initially retained Taurus to manage press relations and secure Joan Collins as guest of honour for our annual fundraiser the ‘Bone Ball’. As a Not For Profit (NFP) organisation, value for money and results are of utmost importance to us as we have to justify every cent we spend, so we really appreciated the extra effort Taurus delivered. We find Taurus Marketing innovative, efficient and they possess an appropriate sense of urgency to progress projects. The team are always on hand and respond immediately and effectively to our requests. The work they produce is of a consistently high standard and Taurus is always willing to go beyond the call of duty to get the job done. Above all Taurus is friendly and approachable which makes working with them an easy, productive and enjoyable experience."
KAZ Group, Managing Director, Peter Kazacos"For me, the main benefit I’ve found is that Taurus raised our profile and helped us become recognized as a brand. With the publicity generated we’ve received recognition in the marketplace, improved our image to staff, customers and suppliers and collected a large number of referrals."
