    What's the current gold rush right now?

    Here are examples of past gold rushes:

    - iPhone Apps - At the beginning I made crazy amounts of money off of basic shit.
    - Synthetic weed gold rush - Never got in to this one (too harmful)

    What's popping?

    Never too long in one place.
    I assume weed in the states where it is legal is a future niche that could make some people good money. For example a price comparison for certain states. Might not actually be allowed to "advertise" it though.

    Anything app related can still make you a lot of money since the majority of people these days (especially in the US) use mobile to connect to the internet.

    So...

    1. Create mobile app
    2. Buy mobile traffic for your app.
    3. ????
    4. Profit

    Here's my story with apps.

    When the App Store opened I made 200k. I was only 16 years old. A couple years go by and profits start going down I make more apps and try to buy Facebook ads. I lose over 60K developing apps and buying ads. Now I'm 20 trying to buy a house and I'm pissed off because nothing in apps is making money. If u know the secret to make money with apps now tell me.

    $200k is not crazy amounts of money, it may be to a 16 year old, but it is not. I am pretty sure that making 200k is still very simple for someone with knowledge of apps to do.

    As for Facebook ads, if I was trying to promote an app I would push it through Facebook Pages owned by kids who think $5 is crazy money. Approach the kids with big Facebook Pages and tell them you will slip them a fiver for a few shout outs on their page.

    Looking through the top charts it is all apps that have been there for a long time, and they are all top notch highly polished apps, mostly made by companies. Unless there's a method you guys are withholding, I think making money off the App Store is extremely hard.

    Not only that, but 200k on the ap store, recurring, im not sure what happened to your apps to lose money, how you lose money developing apps, but its still just as easy as ever.

    I don't mean any disrespect but are you actually making any serious money right now from it?
