    Well don't make it free whatever it is. Don't make it cheap either. Horrible advice from freebie seekers, those who want it free will also be the ones who take up most of your time with support.

    You have to get paid in order to create something that is worth using.

    If you want to get an idea don't ask people on forums like this you will just get the freebie seekers. You need to understand the niche you are in. If you want to create SEO software for example then you have to do SEO to really understand what an SEO would want and need. Don't just make something because people on a forum told you it was a good idea that is a really bad path to take.

    For me it's the other way around. I get these ideas all the time, but don't have the skills nor the money to put the wheels rolling.

    I definitely second this. Releasing a free bot will get you nowhere, unless you got a decent freemium concept.

    And @umerjutt00, banner ads on an automation software that people will just put on their VPS and then forget about it? Doesn't sound like a good source of income to me.

    @OP
    Why do you dislike the idea of coding an automation tool though?
    It's a huge market :)

    Get familiar with the market you are after for. Let's take IG for example.

    Go after all the threads and see what people are after for. Then go and buy all competitor tools and see what are prons and cons of each and make better tool then the ones on the market already.

    Regarding pricing, for any kind of long-term business monthly payments are a must. Even low fee is better then one time payment. No one can expect to pay one time fee of $xx or $xxx at best for the tool and expect it to be updated for years just because it's paid for.

    I would focus on ONE platform for automation, not multi-platforms and automate the shit out of it for best user performance. Also, then just listen to your users and see what they want and upgrade platform on the go.

    There's a ton of those clones around. And most of 'em flopped!

    If you can automate a way to build relevant backlinks and/or a way to generate real targeted traffic, then you'd probably make so much money that you'd never have to code again if you don't want to.

    Does it matter?
    Experience taught me that this is a tricky proposition - how many of you are very good programmers? By good, I am talking about skilled and affordable. Affordable is tricky because its not about your hourly rates. You can code for 50 cents an hour for a year and give no value to the buyer.

    Any JV with a coder typically drains the pocket of the other partner. If the coder turns out to be a jackass, you lose money, integrity and many potential boners. I have serious trust issues with coders. As far as I know, this is the case with most JV partners. Good coders and good writers are hard to come by. Good as in - timely response, logical thinking and knowing the tasks.

    If you still think you're really good, you can PM me.

    How about assisting people in creating apps for their e-commerce sites? I am sure many owners don't have an app for their online store.

    How much coding does it take to make a good site like Fiverr or Flippa?
    And what is best web language to do them in?
