How To Go Cross-Platform Right From The App Business Start Fast?

If you are serious about your app business, you shall think about publishing apps on several platforms at once.

In gaming, this can be achieved through Unity or Cocos2d-X.

In other genres, this can be achieved through Phone Gap.

In Android world alone, there are more than 20 App Stores, you can publish in.

Even very small App Stores, such as Blackberry, might be interesting if you are targeting a very specific niche, such as entrepreneurs over 50, operating in very traditional industries.

The goal is to reuse as many assets as possible across platforms:

  • app content
  • app design
  • app icon
  • app title
  • app description
  • app search keywords

Here is the rule of thumb:

  • Always start on iOS first when you are a beginner in the app business. This will bring you the most revenue.
  • As you progress in your app business understanding, find a team that can publish on many platforms simultaneously.

It is so much fun to go cross-platform reusing most of the assets you created for iOS. It will most probably not double you revenue but it will definitely significantly improve your Return On Investment (ROI) in the assets.

To Your Success!

How To Easily Get Your App Discovered in Google Searches?

Your App can be found when users search in Google and other search engines on their mobile devices. This can happen in any mobile web browser and some mobile apps.

This is due to the fact that Apple automatically creates an iTunes URL for your app. That URL is automatically indexed by all the search engines.

The URL is created by Apple the moment you create a new app in iTunes Connect.

And you can fully control the URL’s keywords. That is, you can also fully control, how well your app will be found in Google and other search engines, once it is released.

HOW?

Once you enter the App Title for THE FIRST TIME in iTunes Connect, the iTunes URL for your App will be created based on that title.

You can be sure that the first words in your App Title will be included in the URL. This will have a huge impact on your App’s Discoverability using search engines like Google.

Therefore, get your App Title right THE FIRST TIME you enter it in iTunes Connect. You cannot change the URL of the App afterwards.

To Your Success!

1 App Reskin Does Not Make Sense But Many Do!

When you reskin games, doing just 1 reskin of a source code will rarely be profitable.

Rather, doing 3-5 reskins of a source code is usually what it takes to take a reskin project to profitability within a reasonable time frame.

However, you must be aware of how fast the 3-5 reskins can actually hit the App Store and start generating revenue.

Apple may reject 3-5 reskins of your game when submitted for review at once.

If you do it one by one, however, you delay the time until all reskins are in App Store and generate revenue.

The remedy is to have 2-3 Apple Developer Accounts to distribute the reskins across.

This way, you can submit the reskins at once to different developer accounts!

To Your Success!
