We have been inundated with emails asking us to talk more about app content and how to make an app that will make the app maker some money and easy to create content. One of the most popular and easiest style of apps to make is an app that is focused on your local community. Today we are going to look more at the community based mobile apps that are being built with AppsGeyser’s Android app builder.
Why build a community based app?
There are many app ideas out there that are focused at a huge audience. This may seem like the way to go, after all, you want to attract the widest possible audience for your app. However, this is not always the best way to go. A smaller audience allows you to focus more upon your content that will be received and used and an app that is used more frequently will be more successful financially than an app that is downloaded by more people but is then discarded and goes unused.
A community based app is as it says; an app that has been created for a very specific audience within a chosen location. These apps are very popular as they help to bring local information and news to the community and they allow the community to come together and respond to local happenings. The main concept of an app of this style is to encourage social communication and sharing of local information, this trick ensures that your app is used more frequently and thus earns you more money.

Will community based app make me money?
This style of app is definitely the app that will make you money. One great part of building a community based app is that you earn a great income from advertising local businesses and services. Your audience gets to benefit from exclusive app based deals, encouraging them to visit your app again and again, the local businesses benefit from improved trade, and you, you just get to sit back and enjoy the revenue that is derived from the advertisements. Private advertisements are generally secured for a three month, six month or yearly term and are a constant income for app makers as opposed to banner ads that generate a lower variable income.
How can I create a Community app?
What we suggest is in order to build a community based app you should build a forum website that can be linked to your app and also social networking pages. Once you have these in place, you can start to create your AppsGeyser app by using HTML and tabs. The HTML page will be built with all the links for your advertising, you can have two or three of these pages with different categories, then attach a further two tabs, one for your forum and one for your social network.
