    After I was done with my journey I started look for other ways to make money. I must say there are a lot of methods that I or anyone else can use and make money, the thing is I was looking for something that can grow and possibly make a lot of money.

    I ended up doing a few things, something blackhat, something gray, and this.
    I decided to start this journey because of 3 reasons:

    1. I don't know anything about ranking an app 0% but this is kinda exiting for me and I can't wait to start.
    2. This will keep me motivated in times of crisis and get few tips along the way.
    3. There is no journey (or active one) for an App and it will be a refreshing between all the IG and Amazon journeys.

    So with no fancy fonts or graphics let dig in my short goals and plans as for now.


    The Plan.

    I don't have any as I said I have a 0 experience but I can tell you what I am doing right now and what I will do in short term.

    -Rresearch

    I was looking more into apps ling time ago. I was doing my research for 3 months for my niche, audience, possible growth, maintenance of the app, possible monetization and the cost of making the actual one.
    ...in short I did my research but the research never stops, the more info you gain the more advantage you will have.

    -Making the app

    I found a great Dev that will build my app. He was recommended by few people that I know I can trust. The app is in progress and it should be done in a month or so...with will leave me enough time to tweak and make my marketing strategy.

    -Monetizing

    I am considering few monetizing options and I might combined them. I might use CPA and ads....why the fuck not but I will probably only use one at the begging.

    -Marketing plan
    This is something that I need to create but I know what I will not do. I will not do any seo or any blackhat method that will remove my app from the store. I am planning to spend money on monetization and I might use few (50-100) twitter accounts to start promoting it.
    I will use twitter at the beginning but its not something that I want to continue, my hopes is I will be able to spend money on ads, etc. acquiring the users and to make x2 or more that I will spend to get them.


    I am expecting that I will manage to make money after few months from the app launch and my goal is to make at least $1k/m net profit but I am expecting more.

    Additionally I will give my self a one year to make this a success as my previous journey.


    NOTE: Don't PM me, will not tell you what my app/niche is about and I don't want a JV....also this is not a method/guid thread and don't expect much.

    Probably few K's, maybe more if the app starts earning.

    Few things have been done by now.

    -Name for the app
    -Domain with the same name was purchased and .com extension
    - AWS amazon account was open for the app hosting


    I will use the existing hosting I have for the LP for the app and also I will probably need to look for a logo creation.

    Also this will not be a journey with daily updates, especially now at the beginning. I will update when there is something to update.

    Wow, ideal thread to follow. I have something similar in mind.

    1 question: Is it an iPhone App or an Android App? Or both?

    Good luck! :)

    Did you read BigBuddy's thread? If not, then do read it. It'll help you out. I too released one app on iOS and one on Android but they were terrible so didn't went awesome. LOL.


    Anyways, Good luck

    I actually just implemented a monetization method on my app I've been half coding for a couple months.

    If I remember correctly you used ogads to monetize your last journey, Ben help me setup the postback for the api network just two days ago lol.

    You might want to check that out, you can hmu on skype if you wanna see what it looks like
