In today's mobile app world, you need every advantage you can get.
If you are like most app entrepreneurs, you are moving one step at a time...slowly testing new marketing techniques, watching your daily metrics with fingers crossed, hoping that today will be the day your iTunes Connect account goes viral.
Even if you're a hungry business person, you're falling victim to these devastating habits.
You're doing "everything" that you read online...yet the results never seem to materialize the way you want.
Over the last few years, we've seen thousands of entrepreneurs come and go from the app business. Like any market, there are winners and losers - what works one season doesn't work the next - and that clears out a lot of people. The "wantprepreneurs" don't stick around to reap the benefits.
There's no question that the app store is not what it used to be. Many people refer to the 2012 app store as the "Good Old Days". They wax poetically about how easy it was to get apps into the store...and how the money magically kept coming.
When they try to succeed in the 2016 market, they don't see results. They complain and shout, making enough noise to cloud the waters for everyone else.
"Is the app business still legit?" people ask us. "I heard it's impossible to do well now."
There's only so much we can take. Instead of trying to CONVINCE people of somthing, it is always better to SHOW them.
That's why we're hosting the Bluecloud Live Summit.
Ask yourself - are you capitalizing on the new opportunities? Specifically, are you adapting to the new app store strategies that get massive results and shedding the tired, old techniques that don't work anymore?
For most people, the answer is no. Even the smartest, most talented people in the app business run into road blocks. They can't seem to wrap their arms around the current opportunities...to get control of the firehose of revenue they know exists.
What would happen if you could sit down for an hour with someone who is having HUGE success in the app business in late 2016 and they told you exactly what they were doing?
What would happen to your business if, all of a sudden, you learned specificly what you were doing wrong...and how to immediately change it?
All that effort, all that focus, all that stress that you have been pouring into your projects...finally starts getting results.
We curated the best of the best in the app entrepreneur world to come share their unique insights with the community.
This is not a pitch fest from corporate brands who see the app store from 10,000 feet - these are real hustlers who have their finger on the daily pulse of iTunes. They're the people getting featured, getting published and seeing what's really going on behind the curtain.
You will not find a group of people like this anywhere else - both the presentations and the attendees are focused on real, actionable information that is proven to get results.
This event is for you if:
You're an indie developer looking for ways to grow your user base using the latest strategies
You're in the venture capital or startup world and want to connect your business to the app explosion
You're an app entrepreneur looking for the latest opportunities in the mobile app space
You're in the internet marketing world and want to learn how to leverage your skills into mobile apps
If any of these describe you...you need to be there!
