Introduction
Mobile marketing is one of the fastest growing segments of online marketing. If
you are keen in making money online, then you really have to pay lots of attention
to what is happening in the mobile world!
Over the last two to three years, the number of people who access the internet on
mobile devices has skyrocketed. This is due to the popularity of smartphones like
the iPhone, Android and Blackberry, as well as tablets like the iPad.
According to a statistics done, most smartphone users would make use of their
phones whenever they have time and would keep their phones by their side most
of the time. In fact, they even sleep with their smartphones on the side table next
to them! (I know I do that too!)

The number of smartphone users has increased very rapidly over the years and it
is not uncommon to find people with more than one smartphones! (I'm sure you
know of many around you who do that, maybe even yourself!)

There are currently over 1.08 billion smartphone users all around the world and
the number is increasing rapidly, even though smartphones came into the market
not too long ago. But if you think that the high number of such users is likely to be
contributed only by bigger countries, such as Unites States of America, then you
are wrong! Check out the statistics below:

People use their smartphones for a variety of purposes other than games, and one
of them is searching for information on the internet via their phones because it is
so convenient. In fact, mobile usage is growing so rapidly that it is likely to replace
desktop internet usage soon.

This not only changes the way many people are using the internet, it also changes
the way you can now make money online. People who are accessing the internet
through these devices are doing some fairly specific things, and they're doing
them through devices with much smaller screens and keyboards than the typical
computer.
If you are familiar with the functions of a smartphone, you will know that these
consumers are basically accessing their information via the use of cell phone
applications, also commonly known as mobile apps.
If you already know the great potential of making money with mobile apps and
are eager to find out how to create them, more ways of making money off these
apps as well as how to sell them to local businesses, click here.

What Is a Cell Phone Application?
Cell phone applications are add on programs downloaded to cell phones for your
convenience. These days, there are cell phone applications for just about anything
you can imagine to help any of your needs on the go. These applications can do
anything from finding your GPS location to finding WIFI connections in your general
area.
Applications vary in price range - from free to up to a thousand dollars or more,
depending on what the application is capable of and its quality. Games usually run
for about a dollar to five dollars, depending on what game it is and what gaming
brand made it. Most GPS applications are free, but if you're looking for high quality
cell phone apps, then you might have to pay a few bucks for the good ones.
Most companies provide customer feedback so that potential customers can read
what other consumers have had to say about it before making a decision to buy
the app. Many companies also provide a rating system that users can look at to see
the quality of the application. The rating system is based on a star system - the
more stars, the better the reviews are for the cell phone application.
Cell phone applications have many purposes and are capable of just about
everything you can imagine. Users can learn Spanish from their phones just by
simply downloading a little application and teaching themselves. Watch TV from the
smart phone using the VCast video streaming application for pure entertainment.
Students can even practice for that stressful SAT from their cell phone because
there are endless applications for consumers' every need.
Most people these days use cell phone applications just for entertainment because
the only time you really use it is when you're on the go. Being away from home
limits the amount of fun you can have, but applications can keep anyone busy for
hours just by exploring the different ones in the marketplace. The most
downloaded types of applications are mobile games because they can entertain you
for the longest amount of time.
Any cell phone application can be found on a touch screen phone no matter what.
Before touch screen phones came out, nobody really needed applications and they
weren't as fun. But now that you can touch the screen, it gives more possibilities
for applications. Touch screen phones also have wider screens than those of regular
phones, so there's more room on your phone for application usage.

Installing the cell phone applications are very easy and doesn't take much of your
time to complete. Just start by going to your marketplace and search for any
application that you desire. Next just click on it and read the review and check the
star ratings to make sure that it's good quality and has great consumer feedback.
Lastly, just press "Install" and the app will automatically download onto your phone
in a matter of seconds. When you get a notification saying that your cell phone
application has been installed, all you have to do is go to your app section and click
on it to begin using it.
How Does A Mobile App Benefit You?
Ok, now you know what a cell phone application is, you may be wondering how is
that information going to benefit you?
Of course I'm not here just to teach you how to find a suitable app and download
it! My purpose here is to show you how you can make money from creating these
downloadable apps!

The good news for you is, you can now easily make money off these applications
that you create and upload to Google Play Store or the Apple App market!
No, I am not saying that you have to create games to upload to these app stores.
If you take a look in the Android and Apple app stores, you will notice that there
are numerous other niche apps created as well. People download apps not just to
play games but for other information purposes as well.
These niche apps can be easily created but what is important is knowing how to
make money off them! Your purpose in doing mobile marketing is to make money,
isn't it? If so, then read the following notes very carefully.
If you have been involved with internet marketing, you will already have heard of
the days back in the 1990s when you can easily set up some made-for-adsense
sites, publish them and just wait for money to come in!

These apps that you create for monetization are just like the adsense sites back in
the old days. All you need to do is to do some research, create some apps, put
them up on the Google Play Store and see the figures in your adsense account
going up! I'm not over-simplifying the process because it is so simple! Creating
apps is a new trend so there are not many rules governing this game yet.
You do not have to create backlinks to your apps to get them to page one! And
once these apps are downloaded on your customers' smartphones, you will have
repeated chances of making money off them!
How Do You Make Money With Mobile Apps?
1.S
ell your apps on Google Play Store

Once you have created these mobile apps and get them uploaded to the Google
Play Store, you have the option of either selling these apps or allowing your
customers to download for free.
You may think that I am crazy to suggest free download because your objective is
to make money! Not true, because there tend to be more downloads when the app
is free, especially when it is a fun app and you can monetize your apps via
advertisements.
2. Place ads on your apps

As you already know, adsense is a form of advertisement run by Google whereby
all you need to do is to add some codes that you obtain from your adsense account
on your website and Google will do the job of placing relevant ads on your site.
You can do the same for your apps! In fact, this is a very common way for app
owners to make money these days. If you have downloaded any apps before, even
your popular "Angry Birds" game, you would have seen these ads in place.
All that you need is an Admob account (do not use your adsense account, they are
not the same!). Place your admob codes on your mobile apps and when someone
click on the app, you earn the credit!
What this means is, the more people download your apps, the more money you
will earn from your admob advertisements! Thus, what you need to do is to ensure
that you create apps in niches that are popular with smartphone users, so that
there will be more downloads.

There are lots of interesting niches which will attract a lot of downloads, all you
need to do is to study what are some of the apps already put up by others. You can
then create an app in a similar niche but target at a different angle to attract more
downloads.
Below are the screen shots of some of the apps that I had put up sometime
between August and October. One is in the relationship niche. Notice how high the
number of downloads is, and the best part is, I did not have to do any kind of
marketing, such as backlinking, to promote the apps!
All I did was put the apps up in Google play store and wait for users to download
them. You notice that there are some winners and some losers but it does not
matter, because each app takes me less than 1/2 hour to create and each will earn
me some money from advertisement, even without promotion.
I like to show you both my winners and losers because I do not want to pretend
that every app that you have created will be a winner. That is definitely not true
but you have to try your hands at them. The best part is that each of these apps
takes only a few minutes to be created! (You may take longer during your first few
attempts but you will build them faster over time.)
These are just a fraction of my apps and most of them are offered as free
downloads. I try to offer value to my users so that they will download the apps and
click on the advertisements on these apps. There are many ways in which you can
monetize your apps. Do sign up for your free ecourse to learn more.
The screen shot for some of my apps listing is on the following page...
