“There’s an app for that!” We all know the words and cannot deny their veracity – there is an app that lets your cat play video games, for crying out loud. But with so many apps available, is it really worth your time and effort to create your own?
With smartphone usage on the rise and, consequently, computer and laptop usage on the decline, apps are quickly becoming the way for the global population to communicate. Every major business from Amazon to Zappos has an app and so do all the mid-sized businesses in between.
But if you think having your own app is beyond your abilities for any reason, let us take a moment and introduce you to Tasnim Ahmed. In 2012, Ahmed was working his first real job as a software developer, but, as he put it, “I always wanted to have my own business and travel, so I kept my eye out for opportunities.” Just six months after starting his first real job, Ahmed quit so he could focus on building a business designing apps.
By the end of 2014, Ahmed’s total income from his new enterprise exceeded $100,000.
Now, admittedly, Ahmed worked really hard during those two years to build up his business. He didn’t have any big money or big business backing him. But if there is something to learn from Ahmed’s experience it is this: a) apps are their own (very!) lucrative enterprise, and b) Ahmed started with nothing but 6 months of software development experience and a dream.
So, when it comes to your business, there is no reason why you cannot have your own successful and lucrative app. Bear in mind, Ahmed has turned the creation of apps into a 6-figure business; imagine what your app could do for you and your business.
And with the help of us here at AppOn, you won’t even need 6 months of software development experience to get your app up and running. All you need is to bring your dream, and we’ll work with you to design the perfect app in less than an hour! Features like loyalty cards, online ordering, push notifications, and other dynamic forms can be part of your app, expanding your business to whole new audiences.
So, the next time you hear the words “there’s an app for that,” hopefully they’re talking about your business!
