We all know there is nothing hotter on this planet right now than mobile phone applications, or “mobile apps” as the painfully hip like to say. That and $3 will get you a cup of coffee at Starbucks, right? Wrong! This trend is the perfect opportunity to jump in, promote your business AND create loyal customers in the process. You don’t see it? Here’s how it works.
Create a mobile app as a free download that is branded with your business name. Promote it online or even over the counter if you have a brick and mortar business. You do have a mailing list, don’t you? Make it a point to push your new mobile app via that route. Just how big is this mobile app market? Home Business Magazine says people download an average of 23.6 apps to their cell phone and access an average of 6.8 every day. That’s a bunch of eyeballs to get your message in front of and, in our humble opinion, one of the best wealth creation strategies going today.
“But I don’t know how to make an app.” Quit whining. These days the real money is made by outsourcing. All you have to do is decide what you want your app to do, then find someone on line to build it for you by writing the computer code. A good place to find this sort of freelancer is Elance.com. Don’t make this into rocket science because it’s not. You don’t need to re-invent the wheel and start distributing the one mobile app that is going to revolutionize life on Earth.
People don’t expect that. They just want something that is moderately useful. Do that, brand it with your business, and put it out there. Home-based business wealth creation strategies don’t get much easier than that.
