How To Make Free Apps And Profits
The AppStore has become a whole other world that everyone is longing for; it symbolizes now ultimate profits and piles of money. That’s why every kind of people, even regular persons who don’t have any kind of programming skills, are trying to infiltrate it, prove their existence and take their share of the big cake. But if we come down to earth, we can realize that developing an iPhone app the traditional ways can really cost a lot of money which makes it an impossible dream for people who don’t have the required funds. But you know what? Don’t give up just yet because a solution to make your own app free for an affordable cost really does exist and that is: outsourcing it.
But what does outsourcing an app development mean? Without going through complicated vocabulary and saying things you can’t understand, I will just say that to outsource an app is to make a third-party (a company or an individual) make your own app free in your place. Sounds interesting huh? You can resort to this solution because you whether lack funds, development skills or both.
Another thing you have to put in mind before attempting to make your own app free is that you will have to spend from tens to thousands of dollars on your app’s development depending on its complexity. And spending money on its development is no guarantee that it will find fame and pay off for its costs, as it might remain unknown and all your efforts will go to waste. Talking about apps costs, let’s take a simple example and that is the Obama iPhone app.
The Obama iPhone app is an intermediate app in term of complicity, and if you have done some research when you first thought of making your own free app then you should have made an idea about its costs. If you haven’t, allow me to tell you that this apps development took 22 days for $100-$150 an hour (assuming that they would develop for 2 hours only per day), with a simple calculation ($6600) we can discover that it really cost a lot of money!
You have another option you can resort to make your own app free and that is to use online pre-made platforms. This kind of platforms give you the necessary assistance and give you the guidance you need to design and make your app. That looks perfect until you know about the monthly subscription value which is not less than $200 a month which you have to pay whether you continue to use the service each month or not.
Now the most important question remains: assuming (hopefully) that you succeeded in making your own app free then how can you make money with it knowing that it’s free? The simple answer to this question is Ads. You can resort to mobile ads company like iAd Network or AdMob and make a partnership with them. When done, you have to integrate their ads banner in your app and each time a user clicks on it you get a certain amount of money. Your payment and profits are managed by the ads companies as you get cash payment each month.
You can see that there are many ways to make your own app free but you have to choose the most convenient to you in term of funds and skills.
