Miss The 1st Boom? Well Don't Miss the Next One You Could Make Money With Apps In The App Store

Updated on June 8, 2012

The 1st Dot.Com Boom - The Internet

Don't you wish you had invested in the first boom? It was a time when companies were being created by the thousands and making like number of people millionaires, in some instances, overnight.

It was during the 1990s when the Internet was still in its infancy and without much regulation, that companies grew expontentially and benefited from huge investments as share prices and stocks rose rapidly.

With this new technology taking the world by storm most businesses back then believed they needed to have an online presence for information and marketing purposes. New online businesses kept popping up and reaching out to the public in a different format to that of the traditional bricks and mortar business.The Internet was the new shop window of bussineses and the World Wide Web's dot.coms took over.

This was a time of innovation and anybody that cashed in on the boom made a lot of money before the bubble burst.

The Next Dot.Com Boom - Apps

If you did miss out first time round now is the time to get on board and be a part of the boom Part 2.

The big names in social networking such as Facebook and Twitter, search engine giant Google and Apple the Master Creator have already made huge profits from what was once a fledging market; a market that is now expected to reach a trillion dollars by 2015.

What am I talking about? I refer to the creation and development of the App market which is growing at such a rapid rate that it is generating exciting and immense revenues. Honestly, if you go online today you will find there is an app for literally anything you want. Once again it has taken a new innovation to make some entrepreneurs millionaires’. In the 1990s it was the World Wide Web’s companies, today it is the App.


The Money Making App

The App was initially designed for the IBM Simon smart phone back in 1992 providing basic essentials to businesses such as a world clock, calendar, address book, note pad, e-mail client, calculator and games.

By the end of the 1990s the majority of cell phones contained the basic app features mentioned above but in 2002 the app evolved with the release of the BlackBerry device, which created the first wireless, email-capable cell phone that grew a customer base of around 32 million subscribers by the end of 2009.

But it wasn’t until 2007 with the introduction of Apple Inc’s iPhone that the App came into its own. By July 2008, Apple had opened the Apple App Store which commercialized manufacturer-hosted online distribution for third-party applications from multiple platforms to a single platform.

This innovation quickly led to other smartphone companies setting up App stores and programmers becoming millionaires through creating apps. Making money from apps is not really difficult to do when you consider that Apple’s App combined iPhone and iPad revenue was $5782 million a day for January 2012.

How Can You Make Money With Apps?

Although the app industry is a competitive market there is still an opportunity for you to make it big … if you have an exclusive idea.

How often have you said, when a friend has shown you their latest app download ‘urgh why didn’t I think of that’ I know I've said it on numerous occasions. But there’s no time for thinking up ideas and procrastinating because someone will get in there before you do. The app market is booming so you need to take action if you want to be part of the boom.

However, creating an app is a little more than simply coming up with an idea that no one else has thought of. There are two steps to overcome before fame and fortune are yours.

  1. Once you have created your app you will want to submit it to the No.1 app resource, which is the Apple iTunes App Store for approval and listing for sale.
  2. On approval you will have to concentrate on the marketing and attracting customers to download your app.

Many of the most successful apps are very simple, like one-time jokes or party spinners imitating guzzling a beer (iBeer) or farting(iFart). These types of apps take less time, designing and programming to make and give you the chance to make money.

That is how you make money with an app but if you need a little help getting started there is a tool in the form of a book entitled 'App Empire' that will make the process a whole lot easier.

There's a review of App Empire next.


App Empire The Automatic Appreneur Review

Worldwide there are approximately 4.6 million cell phone users and the numbers are growing daily plus Apple's iTunes app store has downloads topping three billion, fact. So indulge me for a moment and imagine how much money you could make from creating apps for all those cell phones? Wonderful indulgence wouldn’t you say?

Right, back to reality. OK, before you start doubting and thinking ‘I don’t know the first thing about programming’ STOP. There is no need to worry because you do not have to be a whiz programmer to create an app. There are all sorts tools in the form of programs, software and even a ground breaking book that makes it perfectly clear that every day, ordinary people can create apps and participate in the App Industry. They may even go on to make millions of dollars.

One particular program that will help to get you started in the app industry is the ‘App Empire Automatic Appreneur. It has been created by Chad Mureta who believes anyone, that includes you, can create an app and with the correct marketing go on to become a millionaire.

The Automatic Appreneur has been hailed as astounding by the representative of App Empire who says the modules have proven successful. It is described as ‘a business in your pocket’ created by a professional with a 5 star reputation who has seen his own apps downloaded over 35 million times. I suppose you couldn’t ask for a better teacher. You’ll be learning from the best in the app business.

      Hey Chris, Good luck with creating your art app.

      The software from App Empire was $399 (payable in instalments). I have not made an app yet but my son is making an anime app with the software, and he is not a developer

      Thanks, editor supremo. I'll give the Apple developer's kit a shot, but it's good to know there are alternatives if it's way over my head. How much does the software you reviewed cost, and have you made any apps with it yet?

      Chris, it's tot really an ad but a review about apps and how they are going to be the next big Internet phenomenom from which you can make money.

      You are right the Apple Development software is free but you have to be a developer to understand how to use it.

      You should go ahead an create an app to showcase your art and stories. App creation is big business and another great method of marketing a product or service.

      Hmm, so this is basically an ad for some software. I think the Apple development software is actually free. I'll check into it and maybe write a Hub. I have been wanting to make some simple apps to showcase my art or stories.
