Would you open a store without preparing for anything beyond its grand opening? Of course not. You need to plan for success; this is true of all businesses, including mobile. People often tell me about their “great app ideas” but when I ask them what their plans are post-launch, they usually don’t have a good answer. It’s like having a ribbon-cutting ceremony for your new store and expecting everything to just take care of itself from there.
App developers need to understand that there’s more to a successful app than just a good product and a launch. Having a solid product is a great starting point but it’s precisely that — a starting point. To cultivate success, you need to develop a business plan, think through marketing, distribution, monetization, and plan for the evolution of the product itself months down the road. If you want to succeed, you need to understand that you aren’t just building an app; you’re building a business on mobile.
Working with mobile developers to build businesses has been an incredibly rewarding and satisfying experience. I am excited to see that hundreds of developers in the AdMob network are on track to earn more than $100, 000 annually. And that’s just the revenue they earn from us! These developers prove that sustainable businesses can be built on mobile. We’ve spotted a few trends that have enabled these developers to turn their ideas into very successful mobile businesses. Here are our 8 tips to building a business with your mobile app.
