Make Money Android App

Do you want to start your own business and make money with app? Everyday there are hundreds of mobile apps uploaded into Google Play or Apple store. Developers make money by implementing different monetization models. But what about someone who is not a developer? Is there any way to make money with app as a business? Not until now. I have developed a daily deals app KnoxBuzz that you can use to push local daily deals from local businesses. The great thing about this app is, the deals are customized so users will be able to subscribe to what they are interested in.

Local daily deals

The idea behind KnoxBuzz app is to push daily deals to users from local business. The app is fully functional. The only thing you will need to do is to make few changes to make it unique. How to do all these changes will be included once you buy the source code and ready to implement. I will show you how you can make money with app using KnoxBuzz.

First – Install Eclipse and Android SDK

I use Eclipse IDE on all my app development projects. So if you don’t have Eclipse installed, you will need to do that plus Android SDK. I believe there is a bundle package that includes both Eclipse and Android SDK. I will not cover this process because there are so many tutorials on how to do that. If you are looking for more structered course material, you can try EduMobile. Compared to other Android bootcamps that are out there, EduMobile offers self pace and well structured Android and IOS app development learning packages at affordable price. If you are a developer using a different IDE, I am sure you be able to figure out once I tell you what to change. Below are the changes you will need to make. They are so minor and it will take you less one hour.

  • Package name (Google Play will not allow unique same package name)
  • Your company name
  • App name and ID
  • Spice up graphics
  • Add your own “About” page
  • Change action name
  • Change activity name
  • Change activity name in subscribe code
  • Change your company final message

Second – Register with Parse

The process of sending push notification needs back-end support. To accomplish this, you will need Cloud Service. KnoxBuzz uses Parse SDk to support this process and I have been using for few months now. They provide good support, very reliable and they offer free startup package. All you need is to create a free account, no question asked and you do not need to provide any credit card information. Once registered, you will need to add your app to create app id and security key that is required in the source code.

Third – Register Google Developer Account

You will need to create a Google Play developer account. I believe it only cost around $25. Once you have done that, you will be able to upload your app there (remember this app is for Android phones only). Once you upload your app, it be available to everyone for download. All is left is to get more people to download it and start making money.

Fourth – Create a Website.

A business website is definitely a must. In order to have a website, you will need a domain name and hosting. Assuming that you don’t have any website or trying to get one dedicated to this business only, first you will need to get a domain name. I buy all my domain name from BlueHost or GoDaddy. After getting a domain name, you will need hosting. All my websites are hosted on either BlueHost or GoDaddy. Also, you can buy domain name from one company and host on another. I will show you how to do that.

So, if you have a domain name in mind, you can register it today and get great deals from BlueHost or GoDaddy before someone else grabs it. Remember, people buy domain names everyday all over the world and whether they use it or not that is a different matter. Half of the time they sell for more money if there is demand for that domain name.

Why Website

A website is a great place to communicate to your users as well as your clients whatever information you might have. You can entice your users with a list of all local businesses that use your service as well as new ones that join in. Your business clients will be able to find service charge or announcements you have posted on the site. Also, clients will be able to make payments through PayPal or any other payments methods you may prefer. Personally I use PayPal Merchant account and I have few friends who use PayPal too. PayPal has been around quite sometime now and they have lower transaction fees, good protection, and you can transfer money back and forth to your personal bank account. If you don’t have PayPal yet you can sign for free by visiting
