App development for businesses is the leading reason for app creation on the AppsGeyser platform. We have created partnerships with hundreds of app developers who are not creating apps for themselves, but are in the process of app development for businesses.
App makers around the globe are turning to AppsGeyser to help them create top of the range Android apps for them to sell on to businesses. It is not a new concept to us, to have Android app makers use AppsGeyser’s free app making tools to make an app that they then sell to other businesses for a profit. Is it time for you to start app development for businesses other than your own business?
App Development For Businesses
Make an app and sell it
How can I sell an app I made to someone else?
Selling the right to the app that you have created is not as complicated as you may first think. There are already a number of ways in which you can approach this. Each of the ways I am going to show you offers a different level of professionalism. There is no right or wrong way. Each way is dependent upon your app development business style.
You may choose to sell your app through a brokerage or sell Android app permissions independently. Here are two of the top app business selling websites that you may consider using:
Appbusinessbrokers – This app brokering company will help you through each step of the app selling process. They will value your business and ensure paperwork is signed and ownership of the app has been successfully completed. Although using a brokerage like this firm will cost you a little more, there are many advantages. Apps are matched to prequalified buyers looking to purchase a working app, and this saves you time and effort
Apptopia – This easy to use website allows you to list your own app and sell it independently. It has the feel of eBay. You list your product (your app business) and wait for bids to come in. The additional bonus this site offers is that once a deal has been struck, Apptopia will guide you through the handover process. In addition to their added customer support, Apptopia is also free. You may list your app on their site, and add a reserve price so you are not tied in to selling for less than your desired price. If your app does not reach its reserve price, you have lost nothing but a little time.
What am I selling?
As you may be aware, AppsGeyser doesn’t offer you the source code for your app, as this contains data owned by AppsGeyser. AppsGeyser provides you with an APK file that will allow you to upload your app in any Android market. Some people sell their apps but do not hand over the APK, and continue to support the app. Other app developers hand over the APK, and with this you must give the new owner access to the AppsGeyser dashboard so they can make relevant updates. Please contact our support staff to help you make the transition if you need to change the login in details of the account.
AppsGeyser is not able to provide you with the developer’s signature for legal reasons. This means that if the buyer moves the app to a non-AppsGeyser platform, they will not be able to distribute it using the same name in Google Play, and all ratings accumulated will be lost. What we suggest is that the AppsGeyser app remains as an AppsGeyser app, and be used as part of a network of apps that link to external AppsGeyser-made apps.
Now that you are an app making expert, it is time for you to start using your newly found skills to help other business get mobile.
I am continuing on the theme of unique content creation. After all, if you are going to take the time to create an Android app, then it should be an app that has unique and worthwhile content. There is no better place to find content than in your local community. By taking the needs of your community into consideration, it is possible to create an Android app that is not only unique in content, but serves as a helpful guide to local residents.
Today we are going to look at the community-based mobile app idea in a little more detail, and see how you can get help from our AppsGeyser’s Android app builder.
Is a community Android app effective?
An app idea does not always have to be a global venture. Sometimes starting local is the first and strongest step onto the Android app making ladder. You may think that you need to attract the widest possible audience for your app. But, how about beginning by creating a smaller and more loyal fan base first?
A smaller audience allows you to focus on specific content. The more focused the content, the easier it is to update when required. Apps that people download for everyday information are apps that are known to be used more frequently, and thus will be more successful than an app that may be downloaded by more people, but is then discarded and goes unused.
A community based app, is as it says, is an app that has been created for a very specific audience within a chosen location. These apps are very popular, as they help to bring local information and news to the community, and they allow the community to come together and respond to local happenings. The main concept of an app of this style is to encourage social communication and sharing of local information. This trick ensures that your app is used more frequently, and thus earns you more money.

Will a community based app make me money?
We strongly believe that this app idea is one that makes app makers the most amount of revenue because of the ability to create private advertisements. Building a community based app allows you to advertise local businesses and services. Try giving your audience exclusive app-based deals. This will encourage them to visit your app frequently. Local businesses benefit from additional exposure, and you, you just get to sit back and enjoy the revenue that is derived from the advertisements. Private advertisements are generally secured for a three month, six month or yearly term and are a constant source of income for app makers as opposed to banner ads, that generate a lower variable income.
Creating a community app couldn’t be easier…
There are many templates that suit the need for community based apps. You can create an app using a forum-based website, and that URL can be linked to your app. We also strongly suggest that you add social networking pages. In addition to these tabs, we suggest that you create an HTML template for the front page, and add tabs for any other pages. The HTML page should be built with your private advertising in mind. Having a number of these pages, each with different categories, will expand the opportunities to add more private adverts.
You can make a HTML page using our template. (Click here for more details.) AppsGeyser’s Android app builder will provide you with the tools you need, and you can always contact our team for assistance if you get stuck.
One of the easiest and most effective content sources that you can create is actually sitting right in front of you. Each and every one of you has a mobile device. Use your mobile device to create app content in the style of video posts.
Video content is a visual statement that can bring your business to life. Seeing how your company works, how your products are made, and how its product manuals created are all great sources of visual information that can be uploaded to your company YouTube channel.
You can utilize this source to create unique app content that will build consumer confidence in your brand. Let your consumers see who you are, what you do and how you do it. And what clearer way to do it than by creating videos?
You should keep each video short and specific to a selected product/service to avoid adding too much information in each video.
Time to show your audience how reliable and trustworthy you really are.
