    Hi,
    i'm starting my journey in reskinning apps and reposting them in google play with adding admob code to earn from ads SO that's the IDEA
    First, let’s lay out what reskinning is: it’s concept of taking a template or source code of an app, repackaging the graphics, inserting them back into the original code, and bam you’ve got a new app.
    I made my first app but i'm wayting to buy my google developper Account. it will be i guess tomorrow
    like i said the first app is ready , i'm just wating the account
    so The question HERE is : HOW TO RANK MY APP OR How i will have enough installs to reach my goal
    30$ a DAY

    Bro apps reskinning is maybe only famous there where you live ( and i know where you live), people used to do that 4 or 5 years ago in the us, google play is making restrictions and you will face mass bans for some unknown reasons. i have tried this myself this year but no success. The problem was that those guys ( in your country) promoting and encouraging guys on reskinning android apps, are not teaching us nothing ! It's only the illusion of them showing you what to do but it's nothing compared to what people are sharing here. And they are making $$$$ a day ( those guys who are making events and live videos on facebook ;), you see i told you i knew where you live) *haha*, and everybody using their same methods are making sooo less than that, like pennies a day or few dollars.

    When i came here to BHW, i found out that the Apps Reskinning was a method for people who doesn't want to think and make new stuff. Here you'll find better ways for a long term income bro.

    If i wrote all this is not for taking hope away from you or your journey, but i didn't want to let you lose time if you can start something better.

    Why you'll be pissed off of doing mobilr apps reskinning:
    - Doing what they call "legal" apps reskinning will make you pennies a day, and you'll fibd yourself happy for getting $0.09 a day for the first few days but then you'll let it go.
    - Doing what they call "spam" will get your google developer account banned and yourself banned, and you'll need to start using RDP's and buying accounts and getting banned for nothing and losing a lot of accounts at one time, and giving up!

    But remember, you can succeed in this journey ! it's not because i have failed that you or anybody else will fail ! i only wrote these to let you know some stuff that i didn't know when i was focusing on mobile apps reskinning. There is a lot of ways to make it, and they are well explained here, just make sure you pick the right one. You'll get.pissed of playing hide and seek with thz google play bot.

    I might be wrong but this is my opinion.

    Cheers.

    PS: you surely need some startup cash

    I did app reskin like 2 years ago. About 7 apps making me consistent 5$/day (all together) till today.
    Too little money for too much work in my opinion, but if you wanna make more you need to think outside the box.

    Get app templates and think of spins to make a different app from them.
    And games usually brings a lot more money than utility apps, specially if you use rewarded video ads.

    That's what i said, if he puts that much effort into something else it will make him more money.

    For apps reskinning if you want to make money you need to go blackhat :

    1- you don't buy source codes but decompil apk files instead.

    2- make games based on a famous cartoon character in some country you want to target, but don't use his name in the title, use a typo title and use the real name once or twice in the description to make sure you will rank for it.
    You'll wanna rank quickly, check the marketplace for installs/reviews.
    P.S. : Do not buy 100 installs/reviews today and nothing at all during a week, you want your app to look like a new "normal" app, getting more installs everyday. So if you want to buy let's say 1000 installs and 500 reviews. You want to go smooth like :
    DAY 1: 25 installs
    DAY 2: 25 installs / 10 reviews
    DAY 3: 40 installs / 15 reviews
    etc etc, keep raising slowly, you want to keep raising until your app start generating real installs, keep lowering the bought installs then in ( the total amount should keep raising) until normal.installs can do it for theirselves. ( this is the reason i stopped reskinning apps)
    And keep in mind, the amount of installs you wanna buy depends on your niche.

    3- Start making guides of new hot games, use appbrain.com for that and go to the footer, you will find Hot Apps. check the latest games and make guides. for the guides you want to make sure you make good screenshots, good icon that is not so different frop the game's but not in a way that will get you banned for Copyrights. And always write a disclaimer in the description that this app is not a gamr but a fan's guide bla bla bla... ( check the guides that has lasted for more than a year on the playstore and check their description)
    You will find good new games to make guides for, once you rank under the original game, pay a freelancer ( in the Hire a Freelancer section) so write you content for your guide, because now you want it to be a real guide. also let a freelancer make you a good icon. and update your app.

    4- Make prank apps, like get free instagram followers, get free 10Go of 3G data, get unlimited guidlines for 8 ball pool.. you get the idea ? you can make people click on your ad, but what i found converting so well is putting a CPA offer there and let people make the Pin-submit or email Submit ;)

    5- if you are a blackhater, always expect bans, so you want to go for it full speed, hit hard and try to make money quickly because the ban is coming anyways !

    Cheers !

    you dont need to go black hat with app re skinning lmao. Just need to twist the game and make it your own then have some knowledge of marketing and promotion, the best way is on social media through influencers, and you can make money.

    You can say MOROCCO, that's not a secret. YES, app reskinning is getting popular in morocco. and guess what ? People are still having a fortune from it. anyway,My principal goal from my journey is having some cash to start another business. app reskinning is not that safe business to build in web. and that what people are saying in their facebook lives. anyway i will give it a try and hopping for a good a thing

    It's not easy reskinning Apps, but it's not difficult either. I would ignore everyone that says it's impossible because it isn't. Chances are their marketing skills SUCK and they know nothing about ASO.

    I launched a reskin game in June, renamed it something similar (don't make exact) and after getting my friends to download and leave reviews + 2 months of forgetting about it I started getting 4,500 installs per day and was ranking #2 underneath the main App. I threw in my admob ads and now making $50+ per day. I'm working with a new developer to increase the frequency my Ads show and I expect this will increase my earning by 3-4x (currently my ad only shows up when you launch the game).

    Your strategy is actually very doable. Just fukin do it and see what happens!

    There's a huge opportunity in making Guide Apps for popular Games!! I came across this course on Udemy and started making a few Guides this past couple months. Be very careful with copyright though!
