Today I want to show you an email that we received from one of our app makers, they want to remain anonymous but have asked us to pass on their success tips to you. It is with great pleasure that I am printing this success story today.
I wanted to mail you guys to thank you for giving me the free Android app making tools that have helped me restart my career. Over the past few months I have been busy creating many apps using your free app making tools, building an app empire, as you guys like to call it 🙂 and now I want to share my story with you. I would love it if you could share my story with all your app makers.
This won’t take forever, I still have my marketing campaign to work on, but here in short is how I made my free Android app a success.
I already have nearly 3000 active installs on my latest app that I published just three days ago. Before I get started on any app these are the two top questions that I asked myself before I made my app:
1: Who will want to downloand my app? What age group uses mobile phone apps most often?
2: What interests do people of this age have?
I have a few ideas on the answers for these questions so I have built many apps. I build my apps, for the audience that I think use mobile phone apps the most. I know what they like so here is how I make the apps.
All of the apps in my ‘app empire’ (AppsGeyser I love that phrase app empire) have at least 4 tabs. I do this because it makes the app look busy, but not too busy.
I also use different app making templates so the app isn’t boring. I like to use one webpage template tool, and I also like to use HTML template tools.
I make sure that I have Clickbank offers on my app and also a link to my WordPress site and of course, I make sure I have social networking links on my app too. There has to be a share to social button, this help keep the app alive, spreading it to new people.
Another trick I like to use, I include links to Amazon. This helps bring you up in Amazon searches. I found this a big way of getting new downloads.
I am still working on my marketing. Marketing any product, it doesn’t have to be an app, works in the same theory. Word of mouth spreads the product the best. That is why I make sure I have so much social on my app.
Don’t forget, you don’t want your audience to click off your app to search Google for information. Make sure you have all the information they can possible need within the app. More people use their mobiles and mobile devices to look for things. Of course, if they are able to use your app to search, they spend more time on your app = more ad revenue 🙂
Some of your content may end up being from sites that already exist. Well, if you make sure you mention when the information is from then don’t be afraid to use it. Make sure you do give the original credit though, otherwise it could be a copyright issue.
Making apps with AppsGeyser is simple, as long as you have enough content make as many apps as you can. It’s the content that is important. Get all your ads, and ClickBank ads in all your apps. The more apps you have the more likely it is that one of them will be a big success, more apps bring in more people. Angry Birds wasn’t the first app made my Ravio was it?
Don’t get stuck in scams, those emails that you get that say earn $5000 an hour, they don’t work. You need to work for your money, building apps is easy, the more apps the bigger the audience, the more money you make.
Whatever you motivation is to build apps, remember that your business will succeed when you make it succeed, more apps, get the right content and do your marketing.
Thanks again AppsGeyser. It has taken me nearly 8 months, but I got there in the end. “
