You may come across a lot of ingenious app ideas but there’s one important question that needs to be answered—is your app idea really profitable?
In order to develop a successful app, you need to be able to execute your idea smoothly and generate revenue on the long run. While you’re in the process of looking for your future app, you may find our top tips helpful in order to make your idea profitable!
Find a problem
Apps are all about solving problems and making things easier for your users. The best way to come up with an app idea is to look for a problem and to build a solution from there. To make things easier, you can look for a problem that you have experienced before. With this, you can have a head start in knowing how to come up with solutions.
Another tip is to observe how things go about in your daily life. Observe other people and look at difficult tasks people go through on a daily basis. That could be your stepping stone to come up with an idea that makes the job easier for them.
Identify Existing Apps
You can study other app ideas on the App Store or Google Play, or even outside of it. Websites like Kickstarter or Product Hunt have a lot of up and coming projects that can help you look for inspiration.
Checking the apps in the top charts and top categories can also give you a good insight on which apps people like. You can also look at the top-grossing list to see which apps are the best money makers!
Leverage your skills
Think about your skills and rule out which ones you can use to your advantage. List all of them down and rule out the ones you can scale. For each skill, write down your possible app ideas. If you’re good at writing, you can make an on-demand app for writers and people who want to hire them.
Look for the idea that really interests you and one that has little competition in your target market.
Whatever your method is for finding a profitable app idea, keep in mind that it’s all trial and error at the beginning. A huge chunk of apps are a result of many iterations and years of perseverance that helped shape it.
