    I see a lot of apps popping up on flippa recently with same exact concept of marketing( i think its same concept on all )

    1. they develop (reskin app ) and publish it
    2. they run campaign on chartboost which is spending round $150 and earning them round $1k per month on chartboost also ( like arbitrage from chartboost to chartboost)

    Here is also example of one of those listings
    https://flippa.com/9580959-jungle-dash-endless-runner
    One thing i have noticed is that none of them is older than 2 months
    They get banned after 2 months ?

    Can anyone give me some insight if this is fake or they can really make it like that. and how they do it if its reall
    Because if its producing $1k for every $150 invested why sell it. Why not scale the shit out of it ?

    I have the same question. I've seen one seller on Flippa that does this for their business - they build quick apps, run a Chartboost campaign, and flip them. But in their listing they specifically say that the purpose of building the app was to flip it (and promote their Chartboost money making system.)

    But are these listings legit? Can you really build a game, run a Chartboost campaign and profit that much per app?

    Okay, so I got the basic idea of how it works after speaking with the seller.

    The app is not making $1,000/month. Or to be more precise, the app in conjunction with the seller's Chartboost account is making that much, but you will not. She told me that she will show you what you need to do to optimize your campaigns to get it to make that much.

    Basically what it boils down to is your Chartboost campaigns perform better if you fit certain requirements (downloads/installs, etc.) So on someone that has built their Chartboost account over months/years, it's easy to rank, so to speak. So she can launch a new app and her campaigns are already optimized, because she's a top Chartboost member already. Someone brand new with a new Chartboost account will not see the same results. You would have to build it to get to the point she is at. She teaches you how to do this if you purchase her apps.

    So that's how it works. It's definitely not set and forget.
