The question remains, how can you turn app making into a money making scheme? Today we are going to focus on whether or not charging an app download fee is the way forward for your app business.
AppsGeyser’s app making tools have enabled hundreds of people to start an app career and begin earning a passive income, but has their financial gain come from app download fees? It would make sense. After all, you have spent time on planning, developing and marketing your app. Why shouldn’t app users pay for the privilege of using the app?

$0.99 – A small fee for big bucks?
Have you been doing the math? If every one of your 1000 downloads had paid your $0.99 fee, you could have earned yourself $999. Simple. You are going to be getting money for sitting back and doing nothing. Sounds like a dream come true. But guys, I am sorry to tell you, this is a dream for many. App users are not always willing to part with their cash – research has shown that only 3% of them would be prepared to pay a fee.
There are many reasons why it is a lot more difficult to get people to download an app with even the smallest of fees. Ask yourself the following questions:
1: Would you pay for an app from an app maker that has few to no reviews?
2: Would you pay a fee for an app that has free alternatives?
3: Would you pay a fee for an app without first trying a free version?
Getting money from app users is not easy task, but every cloud has a silver lining. You can charge successfully for an app, but you first need to build a loyal audience base.
Whilst you are building your loyal audience base you can still be earning money. There are many alternative monetization schemes that you can incorporate within your Android app.
