This episode dives into how apps make money.
Since you are here, chances are very good that you want to learn how to build a passive income stream with mobile apps. We know this because this is the #1 most searched for topic on our blog.
As you probably know, Carter got his start in apps with reskinning. You probably also know that the app stores are cracking down on low quality reskins.
So is this still a viable way to make money from apps? It certainly is, but you really have to step up your game.
Carter shares how you can still use source code to create apps, but do it in a way that will create great value for the person who downloads your app and make money in the process. As the app stores get more competitive, you will simply need to create a better app, to succeed.
Instead of following the old model of making a ton of different versions of the same source code, you should create one app with that source code and make it the best it can be. Only then, should you consider using that code again.
He gets into exact timelines and metrics on how you will know if you have a successful app on your hands or if you should kill the project and move on to the next one. This is super important because it can be easy to keep pouring time and money into an app that will never be successful.
As the saying goes, you have to know when to hold ’em and when to fold ’em.

I feel like you guys just posted about reskinning as an app making factory… Now it’s wrong?
What’s the fastest way to learn how to make apps when you’re starting from absolute zero knowledge?
@Bill – it’s not wrong, it’s just changed. We didn’t just post about anything like that as far as I can tell. Buying templates and getting a solid education is still the best way to learn how to make apps unless you want to learn how to code.
