    I'm an Android fanatic and I love working with it. There has been a lot of threads teaching you how to sell local businesses websites and designs, but the thing is that in the developed countries, most of the local businesses are not left out without a website, you're going to be having hard time finding one which does not have a website setup. But only like 10% have their own android/iphone apps and here you come into play.

    You go on your favorite marketplace and find yourself a very experienced yet very reliable developer if you're not a developer yourself and cold call the businesses around you, you don't have to tell them who the actual developer is and you set your own prices. :D

    Get yourself inspired by this thread written by 7878:

    You don't need to bring the search engine analytics into attention but you can present analytics of the amount of android/iphone users, marketplace downloads, how much they're missing out etc. Offer them to publish it into the correspondent marketplace and buy a few gigs to increase the exposure of the app.

    Have you actually done this, or is this just an idea? I'm not that familiar with this area, but sounds like it might be fruitful. Do you have an idea of how much one should expect to pay the Android/iPhone developer?

    I haven't tried this and this is just an idea. You could expect to spend $400-$800 for a decent app that is not web-based.
