Hello fellow members at BlackHatWorld and thank you for showing interest in my Journey, all comments and questions are appreciated! So, I've been on BlackHatWorld for quite awhile, however just not a member. I've probably been lurking and reading for around a year now. I finally took the time to register a few days ago and post a Journey thread, considering I finally think I'm ready. Over the last year I've had my eyes on the prize and I knew what I wanted to do. Mobile applications. I feel that there's a great chance for profit here, and mobile devices are taking over on every level for our every-day lives. My approach to this isn't going to be creating applications that sell items, however. That's not going to be their intended purpose. I will have reviews for products and a place to purchase the product (Through of-course an affiliate vendor) depending on the Niche of the application. However the main functionality of the application is actually going to be beneficial and have a real use case to the user. It will give them a reason to open the application and use it frequently. Here's a quick example (Although thought of at the top of my head, and doesn't really have the use factor that I'm thinking about). Let's say a user downloads my application called "Good Food & Good Reviews" (I might actually do this, catchy name, haha) which lists restraints within X miles (or kilometers) of you based on your search options. It will then order them by reviews (Submitted to the application by local users, for example someone reviewing McDonalds 500 miles away doesn't matter, someone reviewing this McDonalds does though). You can then of-course filter the results by the kind of food that you want to eat. The application should feature a map locator and real-time navigation. This application obviously has some use potential, especially for people that like trying out new places. Now, on-top of this we can have a section of the application for "at-home" foods. The user can order this food online. Categories would include food to help you lose weight / burn fat, or even gain weight. (A good thing to remember is, that not everyone wants to lose weight. A lot of people actually want to gain it). You can purchase this from within the application through whatever payment provider you're using for your affiliate vendor. (Probably Paypal or Amazon payments) If you want to make it even more interesting, you could sell the items from within your application (Through google play / apple store) so they never have to enter a credit card and then process the order yourself to their address. (A little more work on your end, A little less on theirs, plus they will be more likely to use a trusted and simple payment source they've probably used hundreds of times before). Simple things like that are the kind of applications I'll be making in numerous different niches. I'll be using Facebook advertisements and groups to get my applications out to the people and will be focusing on getting the application going in certain areas at a time. This way word of mouth will also help with advertising, because the chances of something say "Hey have you heard of X, everyone is using it" is going to be much higher if you focus in a single area. First application: Mobile dating platform. (Not a rip-off) Me and a friend thought it would be interesting to work on a mobile dating application that was different. We're not going to be there to scrape money from our users and we're not trying to be a clone of the bigger companies. In fact our application is really different and quite unique. I can honestly say it's the first of it's kind and is bringing mobile dating into the present. The application is currently in polishing stages and we have big expectations for it. We've talked to numerous investors and we feel like this could be our ticket. I will be posting more information about the application as we launch in the very, very near future. (Within the month). ------------- Please keep in mind that this is a Hobbyist Journey, and while I'm working on things when I can I have other responsibilities such as school, taking care of my family, etc. I will post updates whenever possible, or whenever an update needs to be posted. Until our application goes live there's will not any updates to be posted on its status. I will be working on one application at a time and posting here when they're completed, keeping track of downloads, sales, profit, etc.
