Banner Promotion

Banners can promote your apps (individual apps, collections of apps, and your entire product line) and increase daily downloads by 4 to 5 times.

You can request banner promotion of one or more of your Android, Edge, Galaxy Watch, Theme, Stickers, or Font apps. Apps that meet selection criteria can be promoted using banners, which run for at least a week but may run longer.
