    So I've been reading about IM since August, having made some money with CPAGrip.com, buying three .com's, and considering the "affiliate marketing campaigns with a tracker/VPS/affiliatefix.com" path.... I've come to the conclusion, why be an affiliate marketer RIGHT NOW when I can have my own apps marketed for me with quality leads that will convert on monetization!? In the future, learn how to market my own apps and others!

    So here's the plan...
    1. Learn how to build apps.
    2. Monetize my apps in a way that the user doesn't have to pull out a credit card
    3. Utilize AffiliateFix.com to find the best network/person to promote my apps
    4. Pay for quality downloads that will engage in the various monetization methods of monetizing an app

    It's important that my apps are marketed to the right audience, obviously the goal here is to create HIGH QUALITY apps that users will actually enjoy. There is also the idea of creating simple "alarm clock" or utility apps with monetization, and paying for quality leads.

    Example: Fart Noise App
    • 20 Free Fart Noises Included, 10 Premium Fart Noises behind monetization methods
    • Monetization methods - "Watch an ad to unlock Premium Fart Noise" - "Complete a survey to unlock multiple Premium Fart Noises" - "Download an app to unlock Premium Fart Noise" - "Unlock Premium Fart Noises with TapJoy" - Potentially put in ads, research further monetization methods, look at what other apps are doing, etc...

    Advertising Case Studies

    I've seen many methods on ~"how to create a successful app". For example...
    • Pick a niche
    • Explore the apps
    • Figure out what is missing from this niche of apps(the fart noises and quality of fart apps is just so sub par, we just need a high quality fart app and it'll take over that niche)
    • OR
    • Combine multiple apps into one new app
    • Just copy existing apps, read the 1 star reviews, improve the apps(also improve areas you see need improvement)
    • Just create the same utility app with a new face, market it, aim HIGH for a positive ROI
    My understanding thus far is that I must learn to code in Java(CodeAcademy and Youtube) and navigate an IDE(internal developer environment).

    If you don't want to start coding or want to buy already made apps, everything could be bought on flippa.com, cheap mobile apps go from ~20-40$. Find a good one, might have to change a few things but heh, did not have to code tho.

    Interesting, but I guess unless you have VERY deep pocket, promoting your App through affiliate's is close to impossible.

    I did the math with an App I'm promoting, basically I get payed 30 cents per install, in GEOs where the CPM is around 30 cents...

    Now actually, due to my retention rate of let's say 33%, 1 install actually costs the advertiser 90 cents...

    So to break even the App author should be able to get 3000 impressions once the app is installed on the user phone (assuming the author use the same monetization as the apps I'm buying traffic from).

    Or he'll be using his App to promote other App Installs, in which case he only needs to trigger 3 App installs to break even... now I say "only" but that's probably not easy either...

    So overall it's not sooooo easy if you ask me, and I suspect the App developers have either huge pockets or investors.

    Cheers,
