You may be in the 90% of the pending app making population that is considering making a free Android app but you are just not so sure if you can really earn money from a free android app. The main question that is keeping you from moving forth with your amazing app idea is that if the idea is so simple, how comes no-one else has already done it before you? The reality is, most people just don’t realize how easy it is to make an app and just never bother getting started.
make money with your free Android app
We are now in the peak period for app making, whist the market is still growing and the demand is still high. We are also in the period that people are willing to try new apps from new app makers because the market is still very new and monopoly brands have yet to take over the market. I am going to liken the app market to the high street, the app markets are the lovely shops we all loved, then along came the hyper markets and took away a lot of the business from the small store owner. At present there is still room in the app store for the small ‘shop’ owners.
It is true that not all apps make it out there in the marketplace. One of the reasons that this is so true for many apps is because the app maker does not make a complete business plan for their app and just create the app and throw it into the market hoping for the best. In order to create app success and make money from your free Android app you need to plan every aspect of your app business from the planning stage down to the marketing and tracking of app performance.
App users are beginning to become more app savvy, meaning they are now understand and researching more about apps before they unwittingly download the app. You need to ensure that your app will be favoured on social media sites, on review websites and able to be picked up on Google searches, making a success of your app is all down to how well you set up your app business and marketing strategy of your brand. Branding can be the life or death of your business.
Don’t think that charging $0.99 per download will make you a millionaire overnight, this is the first mistake many pending app makers make, people will not pay a cent for an app whilst there are free versions of competitive apps out there. There are many alternate ways in which you can make money, including affiliate advertising and in-house advertising and purchases.
Don’t hold back on your app making career, time for you to get it started before the market falls into the hands of the big super giants that take the pride and pleasure away from the individual app maker. Now is the time to build your brand awareness, and don’t forget to send me a copy of your finished product on one of your social media pages.
