Hey Everyone, Today I’m going to tell you how to make money online through mobile applications. You might be wondering that there must be a techie side to this piece of article.
Well, there isn’t. No coding, no designing and still a lot of money. That’s what I have got for you here.
Fair enough? 🙂
Ok so let’s get to the point.
In order to learn how to make money online through mobile applications, you do not have to be a programmer in the first place. However, If you’re one, that’s a PLUS.
You need to have good business skills and right kind of people to do the work for you. I know it’s hard to find like-minded people but once you find them, that’s all you need.
Make Money Online through Mobile Apps
Let’s have a look at how you can make money online through mobile apps:
1. Outsource Mobile Apps Development
If you’re not a technical person who knows how to develop mobile applications, then this is the first step.
Look out for people around you and see if you can find a good, competitive developer who is reasonable in terms of price at the same time. It’d be great if he has a good sense of designing as well.
Carefully check out his/her portfolio before making a decision. Ask him/her questions based on his experience to get to know more about his competency.
If you FEEL right about that person, go ahead and outsource him/her the work!
2. Do Market Research
This is a very important aspect of every business. You should do a proper market research before proceeding with the app development.
Ask yourself these questions:
Does your product or service address people needs?
Who are your potential audience?
You can also take a survey for this purpose and know what people are most interested about. Believe me, I’ve seen apps which are well designed and have good features but still aren’t popular.
You must be wondering why?
The reason that they don’t have a place in the market is because they’re attractive but don’t address what people want. So make sure, the concept behind your app must reflect the need of the users otherwise it won’t be successful and you’ll end up failing miserably.
3. Type of Application (App Category)
You should also select a relevant category based on the interest of users and make sure your app nature is totally according to the specified category.
Let’s suppose if you’re making a game so you should make sure that it has a good story line, good graphics and an intense level of addiction to offer.
Addictive games are what get more clicks, more downloads, and consequently more money.
4. Branding & Marketing
Now that you’ve a clear idea about your app and it’s in process, you must be wondering what you need to do next?
Well the next thing is to make your application famous so that maximum number of people downloads it. Because that’s how you’ll make money.
But how are you going to do that so that it reaches to more and more people? That’s where the role of MARKETING comes. You need to market your app to tell other people about it.
Now you might have this question in mind…
When should I start marketing my application?
Start marketing your idea out while the application is in design process. It’ll surely get you new ideas and feedback from other people. In this way, you may consider user feedback and come up with an extraordinary product.
And don’t forget about your product even once it is developed. You need to keep updating your application with new features and better user experience in order to retain maximum audience.
Now the question arises…
Where should I market my application?
Well, in this modern era, social media is the BEST platform to market your product or service. The best thing about social media is that you address GLOBAL AUDIENCE while sitting at your home. So I suggest you to market your application on social media. There’re a lot of social media platforms which you can use like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest etc.
ANOTHER IMPORTANT THING is that you need to make sure people remember your product or service which is only possible by means of BRANDING. You need to create your brand identity in order to familiarize people with your product or service.
Newsletters Subscription is also a good idea to update your audience related to your product.
Basically the point of the whole thing is to keep bringing new users and engaging the existing ones towards your product.
5. Keep your App Free to Download
Free Apps generally generate a huge amount of traffic because sometimes even if people don’t like the app, they install it in the first place because they see it’s for free.
And that’s what gets you money – pay per install. You can also monetize that app with banners, affiliated offers and in-app purchases. Each click on the advertising banner gets you money!
