We need to have a chat before you run out and spend $147 this month or $1,000 for the year. This is an emergency meeting so I will disregard the disrespect you are showing by attending in shorts and t-shirts. Light ‘em if you got ‘em. The guberus are orgasmic over this new software that allows you to create quick and easy mobile apps for iPhone and Android smartphones. The excitement is over SkyBuilder.
I have not bought this product. The few remaining marketing lists that I am on have been pimping this heavily over the last few days. I have no idea if you will make a million with this product or not. I suspect those that drop in early and spam the app stores with shitloads of apps will do quite well in the short term.
But before you part with your hard earned cash, after reading the sensational sales copies and guberu bonuses, you might want to ask yourself some reasoned questions. Like, do you really think a business is going to last where they allow people with no programming sense to spam the shit out of a billion dollar store with crappy little apps? Software was built in the early 2,000s letting people build websites in 5 minutes without knowing a single thing about being a webmaster. For a glorious year or so people made unholy amounts of cash from the enterprise. How long did that last?
Do you think maybe history is rhyming a bit here?
The idea is that this is so easy that you can create hundreds of little apps and upload them to the respective stores. So really the apps aren’t all that special but if you have a few hundred and each get downloaded a couple times a day then you will either make the $1 you are charging for the crap or you get ad revenue. Just like the old days of slinging niche sites.
Do you really think a business model that was utterly destroyed by Google in their search engine will make it long-term in their Store?
Apparently there are two ways to make money with your apps. Both completely valid. One is you can sell an app to a local business. Please do not assume that you can walk into any hairdresser and easily sell an app to them for $500 and $47/month maintenance. It is not that easy. If you are not a salesman then this is not going to make that process any easier. Though if you can sell cowpies to a cowboy then you will have no problems.
The other is to make shitty little niche apps. Now I can’t imagine what kind of moron would download a dinky niche app but apparently those people exist. How long that app actually stays on someone’s smartphone or gets used is questionable. But if they do then you can show them click-tastic ads and make Adsense-esque coin.
Look. I have no intention of buying this product. I absolutely LOVE the idea of it…along with thousands of other people hoping to cash in on mobile apps. 90% of these people could not program their VCRs. But they have dreams of building the latest mobile app and making hundreds and thousands. Will this product do that for them? Maybe. For a while.
Perhaps it is an opportunity that I will rue the day I ignored. But I have seen this before. The guy who built this system is a genius marketer. He had/has a system that lets you fling niche blogs as fast as you can push the buttons. I tried it and hated the output. Seems folks made money with the system. I got my money back.
I see little difference with this product.
A lot of hype has proceeded this product. A lot of guberus stand to make a shit ton of money from pimping it. Most probably not building a single app either. That’s what they do. You do not have to contribute to their affiliate proceeds.
Tread carefully with this one. It is shiny and new. It’s clever. It gets you in a game that heretofore you were unable to play. It seems different from all the Azon-blog-curate-Pinterest-affiliate crap floating around out there. But it’s made from the same shitpile.
