Some big changes are coming. As most of you could notice there was no Income Report on my blog since the beginning of the year. There are many reasons that have stopped me from publishing my total money income on monthly basis. But the most important is that it have created many "copy&paste" followers without their own ideas. It is really sad that so many people prefer to steal the idea, graphics, descriptions and make just a few bucks with some unpopular copy. In most cases it does not give them real profit, but tens of copies of my apps on the market are not comfortable for me. If they would think just a little, they could make some unique and really profitable apps. But for many developers it looks easier to copy everything. They are able to copy so they could produce some awesome apps (as they have enough knowledge to build an app). But thinking seems to painful for them. That's just the reason that has unmotivated me from showing all of the money income sources directly.
Last week I was very surprised when clicked a link to create Google Checkout account and found my country on the list - as till then Poland has not been officially supported. We have been allowed to add free apps to Android Market but could not sell anything! I have immediately filled all forms and registered account on my country with my legal business name and address. Unfortunately I could not add my bank account number as it was not accepted by the form. I could not find any official news anywhere on the Internet about new countries. Moreover message asking me about my AdSense account number has been popping up on my Android Market console.
This report is late (almost like usual...) as I have made a little holidays in December away from the computer. So here is a November 2011 income summary. Moreover I have decided to publish December report with the 2011 annual summary by the end of the January. So if you are interested in my income math you are welcome to watch my blog (at least till the end of this month).
Goal reached! My regular income still seems to grow. My lastly introduced in my "Make Money on Android" eBook method seems to be working very well (not only for me - check lastly published success story and comments). As you will see in the numbers I have no reason to complain. My current income generated online lets me to live in my country quite comfortably. Lastly most of my work time has been spent on Android Development. Preparing updates and some new software in preparation. Moreover I have found great way of increasing my productivity. Read this post further for more details.
Over a month ago I have shared two Android Developers Success stories of my loyal followers. Today I would like to publish one more email received by Android Developer that has achieved income close $1000.00 per month. He has been kind enough to provide screenshot of his Admob stats with exact description of his revenue periods. Make sure you read this post to the end for a chance of getting free copy of my "Make Money on Android" eBook.
In this post I will try to answer if it is possible to blog from Android Tablet. It will be written from beggining to the end on my brand new Archos 80 G9. As it is my first post that will be written on this device I will learn and describe all my expiriences as it occurs... Just from the beggining I already have quite a few findings that may be realy interesting for those of you who are still unsure about tablet usability.
As stated in my previous income report my earnings from Android apps development is getting much higher. Mostly because of last discovered method of increasing app visibility that has been described in last update of my eBook. As you may read in lastly published post called "Android Success Stories" and in many comments under my income reports and other posts about my eBook - that methods really works! This time I will sum up all my income made on September 2011. As you may see it is another great month. Let's start!
As you may know there are no many success stories written by the Android developers. Regular readers of my blog already know my success story (see my monthly Android Developer Income Reports for details). But what is main reason of not hearing much about developers making money on Android? That most of them do not write their own blogs and do not have places to share!
As many of you already know I am publishing my monthly income reports each month. Here is another one that will sum up the August 2011. As I have discovered some new methods to make your applications more visible on the Android Market and have updated my "Make Money on Android" eBook with this tips - my income has been much higher than on my last month averages! So both my Android ads revenue and eBook sales have been pretty well in last month. Moreover new technique has been confirmed by many of you to work really well. Here are a few quotes from one of my favourite eMails:
Most of my apps went from 1000 to 3000 downloads a day.others from 700 to 1500.
Even one app went from 1000 to 7000 downloads a day and is now an a stable 5000 downloads a day !! and is in the top 50 in the entertainment section :).
My total daily revenue is now about between 70$ - 90$.
If any one of you want to make some guest posting to share your success story I will be happy to publish it on my blog. Just let me know! I am really happy I could help with such a simple tip! Of course all my techniques are 100% legit and are just using the system the right way! I feel really good that I can share my success with all of you and make a few more additional bucks. <AUTOPROMOTION> Just if you are interested I am highly recommending you my eBook for more details. </AUTOPROMOTION>.
It is over one year since I gave up my day job to become an independent developer (It is more than a year but I have missed a few reports so I will sum 12 months that has been reported on this blog). All my projects that generate any money has been build by me with a little help of some freelancers. All has been done on my own schedule without any boss complaining or some crazy deadlines. Some of you are reading my reports from the beginning and some of you are here for the first time. I believe that this annual report will be very interesting for all of you. I will make a two sections. One where I will spilt all my income by months and another where I will sum all sources of income from last 12 reports.
