Start researching the technology blogs on similar apps, before even you start sending emails. The emails must contain a concise description of how your app stands apart from the competition.

You must not assume that the app will sell by itself. Publishing your app is like getting tossed among thousands of competitors. The first and foremost task is to define an audience, whether you are operating in a niche market or aiming for a broader market. A comprehensive plan in place is very much needed for increasing the visibility. Getting a featured status on the app store for your app is a good marketing strategy. Many new apps were featured by Apple, which has innovative ways to handle iOS 8, when it was released for the first time.
