If you’ve made the decision to go into the business of app reskinning, you’ll likely find it to be a fun, scalable and even profitable venture, if you go about approaching it in the right way.
But, after deciding to embark upon your newfound journey of app reskinning, people may have attempted to stop you dead in your tracks – explaining that app reskinning has “died,” or that the market for reskinning apps has become saturated.
In reality, we can assure you that this is not actually the case. Saturation can actually be a great thing, once you’ve made a slight adjustment to your outlook on the app market (or maybe you even already have)!
The truth is that most aspects of the app market will be saturated in 2015 and beyond. It’s a basic reality that mobile entrepreneurs will have to face. This simply means that there are plenty of appreneurs trying to meet the needs of the hundreds of millions of app consumers worldwide. But, oddly enough, your heavy competition may even indirectly help you with your app business, by forcing you to launch reskinned apps that are more creative, laser-targeted, and generally extremely valuable, in comparison to the apps which may be bloating your niche.
There’s no need to worry about market saturation. App reskinning is alive and well, and will probably continue to flourish for years to come.
So now that we’ve reinforced the idea that you’re going to face significant competition in any niche app market – you won’t even need to worry about competitors for the time being. You’ll just need to focus on the following basic steps to build your OWN portfolio of reskinned apps which could create an excellent source of passive income for yourself for years.
We’re going to quickly provide you with an Introduction to App Reskinning – How to Do It and How to Profit from It to get you started right away.
App reskinning is the efficient means of using an app’s source code (the foundation) to create “new” apps from that same code. By adding new graphics, themes and sometimes sounds to old source codes, you’re effectively “reskinning” old apps and creating new ones. You get to create a brand new app with a new name, by using old code – it can be a great deal.
You can think of app reskinning as buying a house, and then painting over it with a new color. It’s still largely the same house, but with a brand new appeal (and possibly even a higher value).
But, the most important aspect of app reskinning in the modern age is that you’re typically going to be targeting new niche markets with reskinned apps. This is because you don’t want to serve the same submarket with the same exact apps that are simply “dressed up” over and over again. That would likely make your valuable consumers a little bit upset.
So a good starting-strategy would be to reach completely different niche markets with your reskinned apps – as opposed to the targeting the exact market which your source code originally covered. This way, you’re actually providing consumers with “new” apps that they probably wouldn’t recognize. It’s a win-win for both you and your potential users.
In order to actually begin the process of app reskinning, you’ll need to find a good source code/legitimate license from one of the many genuine source code resellers online. A good source code marketplace for you to start with is Chupamobile.
From there, you can find almost any source code that you can think of. From iOS photo editing apps, to social networking or gaming apps and beyond – you can choose from almost any code imaginable.
Children’s educational apps are a great style of app to be reskinned, because the sounds and graphics of these apps can be switched out to teach children a new skill – effectively creating a new niche for your app. For example, instead of teaching children the alphabet (by using the original source code), you could reskin the app into a new children’s educational tool that teaches kids the different planets of the universe, or maybe constellations in the galaxy. The possibilities are truly endless.
Another popular first-time style of app to reskin is the “quiz” app, or the “personality test.” If you have a basic understanding of human psychology, or even if you’ve interacted with enough people before in your lifetime (of course you have) then you should easily be able to create a “quiz” app.
