    Hello everyone on BHW :)

    If you don't know me already my name is Saul
    and I absolutely love this forum (plan on going
    Donor really soon) and I want to let you guys know
    you can absolutely make money in offline, and online.

    I am 18 years old and as many of you started off, I
    did as well. CPA, YouTube videos, Content locking
    etc etc. Well typically I found it to be "boring" to me
    in a way and realized why not use my computer knowledge
    to help make other businesses profit in a better fashion.

    So I got into offline and targeting business owners to
    sale services to as any other offline marketer loves to do!

    I am here to talk about how I closed an $800 deal with
    an app company and how absolutely simple it was! I literally
    got a reply back from this client the same few hours after I sent the email
    initially. I don't know if any of you have heard of APP SEO, or
    Apptimization, basically involves ranking an app higher in the
    marketplace for apps (Itunes,android). Now it's a complex process
    and also involves heavy marketing (to boost downloads) to help
    increase the developers rank and revenue.

    I grabbed 25 emails (every developer uploading an app, has to give
    this information) and sent a simple email such as the following:

    Hi,

    Is the current version of "their app name"
    stable enough to handle an additional
    5000-10000 downloads a day?

    Let me know as soon as possible.

    "Your name"
    Senior App Review Consultant
    "Your email"
    "Your company name and website"


    The return has resulted in enough work to force me
    in stopping work with new clients and focus on existing
    clients to meet the demands in marketing and ranking. This
    is insane to me because the company has 10+ apps and means
    more work and more $$$ if I deliver my promises.

    Therefore worth it!

    Now my full focus is on Apptimization as of now, but I am still
    awaiting to jump into Mobile Marketing, ORM, And Reverse SEO
    as I call it. All of these services I will create 4 different companies for
    and run all of them myself as CEO, I've got lots to prove :D

    I want to you wish all you fellow offliners and guys who
    do clients and focus on residual incomes! Hats off to you
    and I hope you enjoyed this post, making $1000 could be simply
    done by sending some simple emails if you know what you are doing.
    If you have any questions or want to know anything I'll happily try to help you.
    fortunately, and unfortunately I have some work to start on ;)

    Cheers

    Hey thanks for the reply!

    Resources regarding APP SEO, I'm assuming? I purchased a course which
    I thought was VERY great and helped me in starting my company.

    It was in fact a WSO, and the only WSO I have ever bought in my time
    as an IM and probably the last. If you want to know about it I'll PM it to
    you and any other people who may have inquiries about how I learned
    the techniques, it is not shared on here I believe

    Thanks for feedback!

    Yes but the cost for delivering a higher "App SERP" is crazy high dude! I looked into how a few other people are doing this and not worth the time seems to be the consensus. You can't just automate the scripts like you can with so many other items on the net for android at least. You have to actually get real people to go for that app and install it. In your favor there is no way for them to analytic the installs and see how traffic came to their app so you can cloak behind their success, but will very likely suffer if they suffer.

    I tried to script out a Android desktop signup and they do not count desktop "dev mode" installs. Welcome to the fenced garden. Hope you are getting way more then 1K.

    OK! To reduce the amount of PM's I will post the "name" of the product here.

    Sales Page:
    Code:
    http://www.warriorforum.com/warrior-special-offers-forum/578528-300-sold-huge-proof-get-paid-help-app-developers-boost-their-rankings-easier-than-offline.html
    It was released some time ago and you can search on the warriorforum for "Instant App Business".
    That is the product I purchased as it wasn't shared on here and I believe it was $19.
    It's very resourceful and teaches you everything you need to know practically about it, the creator Jay, is a bright guy.

    If you'd like to talk about this please just add me on skype: theapptimizers
    I want to motivate others to take action and make some friggin money!! :D

    Thanks for editing and posting the links in
    for the people who wanted to know about it!

    At the time I heard of it, it was not available here
    on BHW. Send out some emails guys, you'll be amazed
    at how quick the response rate is, and how interested
    they sound when they ask to learn more!

    Always have a website up, so that you can direct
    them to to read more about you and your services.
    You can go in cold, but every client has asked to
    see a website and it's more professional. Thanks guys :)

    Was this a one time fee or do you have them on a monthly retainer now for that amount?

    I went over the WSO and it's pretty informative, but his last video about getting clients did not really point out which people we should go after exactly? Is it those with apps that in any category not in the top 25 for that category? How did you determine which ones to send email?

    Hey,

    As of now it's just a fee, once the work is done
    then we will talk about more work for more of
    their applications. I will definitely charge a monthly
    fee to keep it going from then on out!

    As for the emails, I just go on my Android smartphone
    and find the paid apps that past 100 and gather from
    there. The email works really well and it always get's
    replied and fast!

    Hope that helped :)

    If its free how did you make $800? is that a future amount that they will owe you once complete, or if you choose to take on any other apps of theirs rather?

    I never mentioned 'free'! I hope you saw I meant "fee" instead of "free".
    I billed them at a discount for 1 month in marketing their application (they
    had the SEO part and description NAILED) so I threw them $800 and they took it.

    After I finish this, we will go over it all and determine if we will continue
    marketing more of the companies applications! Theirs at least 14 total.
    I've been asked if this really works & the answer YES. Here's what you need to do:

    1. Make a website
    2. Look professional
    3. Start sending emails.

    You could literally do this with your Android smartphone
    while sitting outside drinking Shakeology, as I did!

    Glad to help you guys, I want to see some more success stories in this
    market! I need some alone time now, Cheers

    * for anyone wondering, I use freshbooks for billing, will set up a 2co account soon!

    Hey hateandbreak. It's really an awesome story, and congrats on creating a business out of it. It's definitely a lesson for me and other wannabes out there. I'd better get started doing something. Could you show me your website so I can have a better idea? Thanks.

    Thank you for the kind words, it means a great deal!

    As to everyone who is PMing me for my website
    just do a Google search for my avatar name. That
    way I won't keep getting a ton of PM's about the website
    I use!

    I hope I am inspiring some of you to take the action necessary
    To make the coin! :)
