The 5 Second MBA

According to recent research, more than half of developers in mobile are living below the “poverty line” of $500 in monthly revenue [1]. Studies from 2014 and 2015 show that only 24% of indie developers make between $1k and $10k a month. [2]

The prevailing sentiment among indie app developers is that pop apps like Supercell’s, Clash of Clans and Candy Crush are the future of the App Store – not the indie productivity apps we’re all making [3].

Your app “Masters of Business Administration”:

  1. Provide value
  2. Make an app users want or need (honestly, seriously, so no fart apps!)
  3. At a price == business model
  4. It should satisfy customer expectations
  5. Aaaand at a level that’s sustainable, and worthwhile to continue operation

That’s where 75% of app developers go wrong. You don’t want to be in that failure cohort.
