How to Start Your Own Google Play App Store Business.

Updated on July 27, 2014

Intro

Depending on what source you use there are anywhere from 5 to 6 billion mobile subscribers worldwide. Many of these subscribers are using apps everyday. This is the perfect time to start your very own business in apps.

In this article I will explain how to start your very own Google Play store apps business. I will tell you how to join the Google Play store as a developer. I will then tell you how to create apps with paid software or free software. I will tell you how to upload your apps to your store once you have them created. I will tell you how to monetize your apps and get paid. I will then explain another way you can make money with a Google Play app store.


Joining the Google Play Store as a Developer

Joining the Google Play store as a developer is easy. You go to the website listed here https://support.google.com/googleplay/android-developer/answer/113468?hl=en which is the Google Play Store registration page. You fill out all of the required information and pay a onetime $25 fee and you are in.

Software Sources to Create Your Apps.

There are several software companies offering app making software. The way you pay is often on a monthly basis.

If you are only making one to five apps in generally runs from $20 to $30, but if you plan on making many apps it can get quit costly on a per month basis.

There is also a free version called Appsgeyser. You can also use the open source Android software, but you will have to understand some coding.

Paid App Makers

Seattle Clouds

Apps Moment- White Label Version of Seattle Clouds
http://appsmoment.com/

Note: A white label version is just a generic version of the software with a much lower price.

Skybuilder

Green Apps Moment

Free App Maker

http://www.appsgeyser.com/

http://www.freeandroidappmaker.com/

Free Open Source App Makers
Android SDK Bundle (Eclipse)
http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html

This is the open source software that you can use to build apps for your Google Play store, it is a little more advanced and you will have to learn some coding to use it.

Ways To Monetize Your Apps.

The first way to monetize your apps is to offer them for sale per download. A good price range is anywhere from .99 cents to a few dollars depending on the type of app you are offering.

Another good way to make money on your apps is to offer them for free and put advertising into them. You then get paid when people use your free app and view the advertisement.

Another Way to Get Paid With Your Google Play Store App Business.

There is another way that you can make money off of your Google Play store app business once you have it up and running and making some money.

The way you can do this is to buy and register a domain name with a catchy well searched name. Then redirect your domain name to go to the Google Play store. You can than list this as a website for sale on Flippa.com.

Closing

So in closing, I have explained how you can start your Google Play App Store business. First you will need to sign up for a Google Play Store as a developer. Second you need to come up with some ideas for apps and build them using either the paid software or a free version. Third you want to monetize your apps so that you can make money when people view or download them. Finally, once your apps start making money you can resell the store by purchasing a domain and redirecting the traffic to it back to your store. You can then take that and sell it on the website Flippa.com.

      You can get paid through advertising. If you look under the section on how to monetize your apps, those are different advertiser networks you can join. They then show ads on your app and you can get paid for views or clicks. Yes you will need people to use your app to get paid.

      Well I am neither a lawyer or a cpa. The best idea is to talk to one of these people. But, to do this you do not have to have a business, you can do it as an individual. Hope that answers your question.

      Will you be creating this app yourself or hiring someone to make it? The cost can vary depending on what all the features you want in the app. I would budget at minimum $300 to start if you are hiring someone for this and if you do not have a lot of experience creating a local app than I would suggest hiring someone.

      Akki if your app is free you can make money off the ads that are placed on the app. Look in the article under ways to monitize apps and you will find where to go and set up ad placements on your free app.

      With paid apps it is whatever price you set it at. With free it depends on what the ad network is paying on that ad.
