I am happy to announce I have set up a partnership with Applits for the mobile app Idea Growr.
In April I posted about wanting to create an app that is about Imagine Anything. In May the app went live and now the app has over 5.000 users. I’m happy to say I’m teaming up with Applits to grow Idea Growr to it’s full potential.
Why a partnership
I was looking to partner with a company that could help me in a number of ways.
- Improve the quality
- Increase the userbase
- Make it profitable
It is also a nice first instance of how I’d like to work: create a working prototype to show a potential and find a partner that fits the prototype to take it to the next level.
Applits is an app ideas competition. It offers a platform for community involvement in the very first step of app development. Users can submit ideas and have the community vote for a winner each month. Applits will develop the app and share the profit with the user who submitted the idea.
Applits has a number of things going for it. The main things are:
- Ideas are their core business
- Experienced in developing apps
- I like them
E-mailing and talking with them quickly made clear we where on the same page on how to approach this and move forward. As a first step we transferred the app to the Applits Google Play account and set up a promotional page on the Applits website.
Our plans for Idea Growr
Our first focus is expanding the user base and improving the user experience. The first things we are focusing on are:
- Make an iPhone version
- Make it easy for people who have app ideas to connect to the Applits platform
- Set up collaborations with different online platforms that deal with ideas
So how is this ever going to make any money?
Plan A is using the freemium business model. We are aiming to cater to people who make money with their ideas. At the same time we want to keep the free version as feature rich as possible. Just to be clear, you will always be the sole owner of the ideas and notes you write in the app.
