I am continuing on the theme of unique content creation. After all, if you are going to take the time to create an Android app, then it should be an app that has unique and worthwhile content. There is no better place to find content than in your local community. By taking the needs of your community into consideration, it is possible to create an Android app that is not only unique in content, but serves as a helpful guide to local residents.
Today we are going to look at the community-based mobile app idea in a little more detail, and see how you can get help from our AppsGeyser’s Android app builder.
Is a community Android app effective?
An app idea does not always have to be a global venture. Sometimes starting local is the first and strongest step onto the Android app making ladder. You may think that you need to attract the widest possible audience for your app. But, how about beginning by creating a smaller and more loyal fan base first?
A smaller audience allows you to focus on specific content. The more focused the content, the easier it is to update when required. Apps that people download for everyday information are apps that are known to be used more frequently, and thus will be more successful than an app that may be downloaded by more people, but is then discarded and goes unused.
A community based app, is as it says, is 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 a community based app make me money?
We strongly believe that this app idea is one that makes app makers the most amount of revenue because of the ability to create private advertisements. Building a community based app allows you to advertise local businesses and services. Try giving your audience exclusive app-based deals. This will encourage them to visit your app frequently. Local businesses benefit from additional exposure, 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 source of income for app makers as opposed to banner ads, that generate a lower variable income.
Creating a community app couldn’t be easier…
There are many templates that suit the need for community based apps. You can create an app using a forum-based website, and that URL can be linked to your app. We also strongly suggest that you add social networking pages. In addition to these tabs, we suggest that you create an HTML template for the front page, and add tabs for any other pages. The HTML page should be built with your private advertising in mind. Having a number of these pages, each with different categories, will expand the opportunities to add more private adverts.
You can make a HTML page using our template. (Click here for more details.) AppsGeyser’s Android app builder will provide you with the tools you need, and you can always contact our team for assistance if you get stuck.
Good Luck and happy app making.
