Yesterday we spoke about the five first steps you need to take in order to see Android app success with your app empire. At number one on the list was Appreneur and today I want to go into more detail about what an Appreneur is and how you can focus your time and efforts to become one of these latest business success stories.
What you need to know about Appreneurs, as opposed to a regular entrepreneur is that an Appreneur earns their money while living a lifestyle of freedom, meaning once they have set up their app empires, they have the freedom, both financially and also time-wise to sit back and live their lives freely whilst their app businesses run themselves. Wouldn’t you love to be able to pop on a plane and fly off on holidays whilst your business carries on without you?
Is there an opening for more Appreneurs in today’s society?
What you need to look at here is the growing number of mobile devices being used around the world, there are over 4 billion mobile phones currently being used, that number in itself is astounding. Technology today has opened up an entirely different world, with the app market currently being the fastest growing industry that mankind has ever seen, and from what the market data is telling us, there is no signs that this is going to slow down any time soon.
Isn’t this the same as what happened with the internet?
You could compare the app market to the creation of the internet, however, the internet was a completely new phenomenon when it was introduced in the 90s, it took time for the world to understand how to use it and how to turn it into a money making business. Mobile technology does in turn shadow this experience but our mind-set is far more accommodating towards this form of technology now thanks to the internet. People are quickly realising the advantages of mobile apps and are jumping quickly into this new money making arena.
Don’t you have to understand technology to be an Appreneur?
Not at all, there are many ways in which you can become an Appreneur without the need to learn how to code, using programs such as AppsGeyser is a perfect start into the app development world without have to invest a single cent. Another way is to outsource the programming work, however this will mean investing quite a lot of money into your business and until you are confident that your app empire will bring you Android app success we suggest keeping costs to a minimum, learn the ropes and only once you are confident start to invest more than just your time.
Isn’t there too much competition?
The app market is still new, it is still growing at an amazing speed meaning that there are still openings for new apps and new competition, but don’t hold off, this won’t last forever. Right now the app market is still a learning curve for everyone, its all about getting the right audience, finding a gap in the market and not giving up.
The important facts:
1. If you aren’t interested in investing time then don’t enter the app market, getting started does not happen overnight
2. Be prepared to make a minimum of 7 apps before you begin to build a decent audience size
3. If you aren’t willing to learn from your own mistakes and start over again and again, then app making isn’t for you
4. Making a business work means building the right foundations, you must have a business plan in order for an app business to succeed.
