My March 2014 Income Report

April 24, 2014 in Income Reports

It’s time for another report on how my online business is progressing. March was a fantastic month! It was my highest earning month since I started down the path of passive income. Even though March produced such great results, I did not do a whole lot to produce more products.

A New Opportunity

Last month I hinted at a new opportunity I was presented. Since I started developing apps, I had made a few connections with other developers in the industry. This paid off because I now have a new income stream because of it. I’m now selling app icon template packs on AppsFresh.com. It’s a site targeted towards app reskinning and these templates are a perfect fit for the community over there. I’ve had good results and I’m currently developing a new category of products to sell there. Stay tuned.

That’s all I have to report and I’m sure you’re ready to see the numbers for March. Let’s get to it!

Another Record Month!

I broke my record from the previous month. Growth has been slow but at least it’s going in an upward direction. I still have yet to break the $1000 mark but I can see it getting close. I just have to focus and actually complete projects that I start. I have some ideas coming up this year that should get me into the 4-figure income level.

I have been diversifying my portfolio and it helps to build my overall income but I do think I need to start concentrating on the projects that are the most successful for me. I might be crazy but I’m thinking about starting another website… even after I said I’m not going to anymore. When I do, I’ll announce it here. It’s not a website that I need to keep secret from anyone. That’s it for now. See you next month!

How to Get Started Reskinning Apps

Since I don’t know how to program, I decided to get into the area of reskinning apps. The costs are much, much lower than developing an app from scratch. And I do it without hiring a developer or graphic designer. I’ve been doing this for about 3 months now and have 3 apps in the Apple app store.

The way I did it was buying source codes that have video courses that accompany them. This is the way to go when starting out! Since I had no idea what I was doing, the reskinning courses were perfect for me. I’m working on my 4th app and feel pretty comfortable now. I still don’t know everything but I could not have done it without video instruction. In fact, I have to go back and watch the video tutorials every time I reskin those source codes.

The app I’m currently reskinning is based on the popular Free Flow or Jelly Flow game. This one is called Jellow and it’s a fun and addicting game. The source code comes complete with video instruction and can be found here.

Jelly Flow App Source Code and Video Course for Reskinning

I knew I had to get this source code and reskin this app because I couldn’t put the game down after I started playing. I had to keep solving the puzzles and get to the next levels. This source code has 3 ad networks already built in for monetization… just replace the app IDs with yours. It also has 8 “In-App-Purchases” that range from $0.99 to $14.99 for more opportunities to make money. The videos tell you exactly what to do from the standpoint of someone who has never built an app before. It starts from the very beginning from setting up your accounts with Apple to setting up your devices for testing. You’ll be able to go from knowing nothing about app development to publishing your first app.

If you want an inexpensive and uncomplicated way to get into app development, the Jellow source code and video course is the method I recommend! The source code includes an unlimited license so you can develop this code over and over again with different themes with no additional fees. It’s a great way to try your hand at app development without breaking the bank.
