Adverstisement and Promotion
From VZ Developer Wiki
There are several possibilities to advertise and promote your Apps on our platforms. Below you can find an overview of tools which will help you to increase the number of installations and the popularity of your apps:
Appetizers are little preview-screens which are shown on our App Summary Page. On this page you find an separate area with 4 boxes containing preview-images of exclusive apps. You define an preview-image in your XML-File which is used for the Appetizers. It is also possible to use animated pictures.

Integrating & Changing the Content of the Promotion
To define the look of your appetizers for position 1 you have to implement the "preview-view" in your xml. An overview aboout different views in general you find here: View-Tutorial
An example of a minimal preview-view:
<Content type="html" view="preview"><![CDATA[ <img src="YOURPICTURE" alt="alternative"/> <ul> <li><a href="linktoimpressum" target="_blank">Impressum</a></li> <li><a href="linktoagb" target="_blank">AGB</a></li> <li><a href="linktodatenschutz" target="_blank">Datenschutz</a></li> </ul> ]]></Content>
The image for position 2,3 and 4 is also defined in your XML. You just have to put the URL of the picture in your ModulePrefs.
<ModulePrefs . . . icon="images/youricon.jpg" . . </ModulePrefs>
To secure the availability of the image in case your servers are offline, please mention that it has to be found in your *.zip-file .
Our CrossPromotion-Bar offers the possibility to tease your app next to the main screen of another app. It will be displayed every time an app is played by an user. For three apps, it contains an image (120px x 80px) and a short descriptiontext which is linked to the advertised app.
