What Yields Better Business Results Than Outsourcing?

Many appreneurs employ Virtual Assistants (VA) to get things done fast and cheap. 

Having a VA can, indeed, catapult your app business to new heights. 

However, having a VA requires time on your side to provide clear guidance and motivation. Also, it requires money on your side to pay the VA’s salary. 

Is there anything that you can do in your app business that would yield even better results than having a VA?

Here is the rule of thumb: 

Automate as many processes as possible in your app business with software.

Do not waste your time and money for employing VAs to execute processes that can be automated with software. 

That is, instead of hiring a VA for every possible task in your app business think about the task’s automation first. Try to find a developer to ask if the task at hand can be automated using some simple software. If this can be done, invest in the software and use it or train your VA on how to use it. This will always bring better results and motivation to your app business! 

To Your Success!

How To Buy App Source Code Wisely?

If you want to play the app reskinning game, you need solid source code that lends itself to reskinning with different themes.

If the app, whose source code you are considering, is in the App Store, you can easily check it:

  • Just download the app and play with it for 5 minutes.
  • Try every function and feature you can see to find out any crashes.
  • Try on different devices with varios operating system versions, if possible.

Once you are satisfied with the app and are about to buy its code, do one simple but extremely important step before pressing that Buy button:

Get in touch with your (or find a) development team to:

  • find out if they can reskin the app at all
  • find out how long it may take to reskin the app
  • find out how much it may cost to reskin the app
  • find out how much a bulk reskin order may cost

The answers of the development team may really surprise you:

  • we do not deal with the programming language used in the app
  • we cannot offer superior design for this type of app
  • we cannot start with the reskin immediately
  • the reskin of this app will cost more than usual
  • the reskin of this app will take much longer than usual
  • we cannot guarantee that all the planned reskins will be accepted Apple
  • etc.

Here is the rule of thumb:

Always talk with your development team about the reskin project feasibility before buying any app source code for reskin.

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!

How to make a living with apps?

If you reskin Apps, there is a certain dynamic in time and pricing for each reskin project you undertake. Here is the rule of thumb:

The more reskins you order at once, the lower the price for each reskin will be. 

That is, if your order 1 reskin of 1 app, it may cost you $600. But if you order 5 reskins of the same app, each reskin may cost you $400. However:

The more app reskins your order at once, the higher is the financial risk you take. 

This is because, you will have to pay your development team before the apps are accepted into the App Store, start generating revenue and that revenue is finally accumulated and paid out to you by Apple and Ad Networks.

Therefore, here is another rule of thumb:

Start with just 1 reskin project. Once it is successful, increate the number of reskins you do per month according to the revenue or, possibly, the profit you make per month. 

To Your Success!
