How To Make Money Selling Mobile Apps To Local Businesses

One challenge that every app developer often has is selling their mobile apps to local businesses. Be it a company dealing in software development or an individual developer, both have to go through a phase when they have to convince local businesses to buy their apps.

Though it can be a hard process, there are some strategies that can be implemented for growing your sales with a properly laid out marketing plan.

How to Make Money Selling Mobile Apps to Local Business

Nowadays, every new business is looking to get their apps developed for iPhones to give their customers or employees an easy way to coordinate with them.

Some may look for off-the-shelf best iPhone apps solutions, while others want to have more customized solutions to meet their specific requirement. No matter what your prospective customers need, here are some steps you need to take:

Decide On What Sets You Apart

Competition is always inevitable. Even if you’re a startup with a completely unique offering, you’ll soon find yourself surrounded by competitors. And, when you’re in the business of selling apps, you already have stiff competition to deal with.

However, you can use this as an opportunity for setting yourself apart by identifying exactly how you and your offerings are different from the rest in the market. This uniqueness will become your strength in beat the competition and convince your prospects to choose you ahead of them.

It can be the stepping stone in convince prospects to choose your app and you can base your entire strategy on your uniqueness.

Research The Prospects

 Research The Prospects

It’s critical! When you first contact a prospect, it always pays you to quickly look at their business websites to grab as much information about them as possible.

This can even help you with find out specific points where your mobile app can help the prospect in driving growth to their business. As a result, you’ll be well-equipped with all the information you need. Will also be prepared for discussing how your mobile app fits in to help them achieve their goals.

Set Up A Marketing Campaign

 Marketing Campaign

After researching the prospects, you should set up your full-fledge marketing campaign. In fact, it’s not just about going out there, finding out your prospects and pitching your idea to them. There may be lots of prospects who you may not even be able to find out. So, it is important that you market your offerings on every front so that people come looking for you.

Decide on the channels you want to use for marketing your products and make sure that you use positive words in your marketing message. Portray how your offering can be beneficial to the prospects and how exactly it can help them step forward towards better business process and growth.

Besides, take care of the SEO aspect of your marketing campaign as well. Get business listed in “Google My Business” and try to give as many details as you can.

Besides, get yourself listed in relevant online directories, contact the influencers in the industry and get them to somehow bring business to you. Promote your offering on social media and ask your current clients to feature your website link at their business website.

This particular approach will give a huge boost to your marketing campaign.

Never Drive Conversations While Meeting The Prospects

 Meeting The Prospects

When meeting the prospects, one of most important things that you have to do is to listen to them. That will allow you to find out exactly how your mobile app can be helpful in accomplishing something that’s really important for them.

If all you do is to try and sell your thing and drive the entire conversation towards closing then you may not be able to achieve anything at all. And again, do some positive words research to make sure of how you can tackle the changing situations during conversation.

Take A Proactive Approach

Everyone of us knows that sales do not happen automatically. After pitching your idea, you really need a strong follow up and clear the prospects doubts so that you can be able to cut the deal.

Always stay motivated as it will allow you to keep pedaling regardless of what each new day brings.

Make The Transition Easy

Once you have captured attention of a prospect and they’re ready to buy your app, you really have to ensure that you make transition as seamless as possible.

If too many problems come along the way, that little amount of trust and patience that you had acquired with the pitch will be quickly destroyed. This may lead to ending the deal as prospects can quickly change their mind seeing the hindrances coming in the process.

Keeping transition unnoticeable proves to be the key as it will give local businesses a message that they’re going to make things easier for themselves in the bid to achieve desired results and see growth.

Making money selling mobile apps to local businesses may not be too easy unless you take a systematic approach to the process. Taking the most appropriate route will ensure that you’re able to achieve your own business goals seamlessly as well.

How research is done at Positive Words Research?

I have been asked a lot of times about how research is actually done at Positive Words Research. I am telling people that I research positive words and that I call myself a Positive Words Researcher and they tell me:” Ok, ok, this is great Elena but what does it actually means, what do you do, how this research is done, can you reference the sources of your positive words and how do you know for sure what words are positive and what words are negative?”

I am receiving messages such as:

“I am on a research team that is studying ….. . We stumbled across your website and it has been an excellent resource. We were wondering where you got your list of words from and if you had empirical evidence that we could reference in our study.”

I usually reply something like this:

“Thank you for contacting me. I am fully willing to help you with everything I can. Please give me more details about how can I specifically contribute to your project.

Related to “We were wondering where you got your list of words from and if you had empirical evidence that we could reference in our study. ” you can reference exactly Positive Words Research, put a link to the list of positive words which is http://positivewordsresearch.com/list-of-positive-words and my name Calin Elena Daniela as the researcher of positive words.

Why should you put Positive Words Research, the link, and my name as a reference?

Because I am creating this list since 2013 (in time I have added one by one the positive words after I am personally researching them and approve them as positive; the words, I am extracting them from my readings: normal books, the Bible, spiritual articles, blogs, anything I personally read). For this reason, the list of positive words from Positive Words Research is unique in the world. And it will be unique because I have more than 1500 words and phrases that I will further add to the list, but the words are still in the process of approving them as positive or not.”

Then I get replies that say something like this:

“Your website has a lot of useful words that my team could definitely use, and we always site who ever we got data from. In regards to our research we have to have empirical evidence that backs up our statements, and because of this, I am in interested in what references you have used since creating this. Creating a website like this could have not been easy, and you must have done a lot of preparation on research to get the information needed.  Knowing a little more about your process I was wondering how you have defined positive words? and how do you know that these words fit these definitions? How did you do your research, to give you the knowledge of how emotion is felt from these words? and how exactly do you individually research these words? As stated, we will always site your work because you have a lot of useful information on your web page. We just need some form of studied evidence to back it up in order for it to fit our research.”

Ok! Therefore, today I decided to write a post to give more details about how research of positive words is actually done at Positive Words Research.

I will include some pictures to show what I do in reality. These pictures show how I do the research practically. It is very simple actually. I read a lot of text day by day and I just extract words that feel positive to me.

For example, I read some text on my iPhone like this one:

Positive Words Research Positive Words Research Positive Words Research

And while I read, I spot some possible positive words like the ones highlighted: earnestness, openness and heartfelt.

How can I do this?

  • I make my judgment, based on the context of the text, based on the sentences where I initially find that word.
  • It is my talent, a gift that I have. My brain can spot these words. It is my natural talent and also my ability that I am training myself to have since 2013 (during 2013 I have created Positive Words Research). Since 2013 my brain reads the text and spots these possible positive words. My ability to spot positive words is high, also because the already positive words that I found and added to the List of Positive Words are already in my memory. I actually know from my memory, if I have added the word to the list of not, without checking the list. Checking the list to see if it has the word or not is something that I do later. But, in more than 90% of the cases, I know if it is a new word or not.
  • It is a spiritual and energetically talent that I have. I feel the vibration of the positive words as being positive. My brain is wired to feel the vibration of words. Highly intuitive people, energetic healers and people that do energy clearing, have the ability to “feel” that truth is light and lies are heavy. I do the same with words. Some words I fell them light and blissful and these ones I consider positive words, and some words are heavy or very disturbing, and these ones I consider them negative words. And some words are just neutral (these words I consider them just for the purpose of filling the void, the gap, for the brain to be able to make judgments). Only positive words are connected with positive emotions and feelings. I consider that positive words are full of truth. The truth is light, therefore, positive words are light, which means with less earthly/material information but with more spiritual/healing/enlightened energy. Versus negative words which I consider full of “lies” (what is a lie? lots of stories to cover a simple truth) and also full of lots of heavy stories from history. These things give to the negative words more information (negative words are heavier because are full of a lot of information, much more information than positive words). But this more information contained by the negative words is not relevant because it just covers the truth.

Therefore, I spot the words from the text I am reading on my mobile, I highlighted them and print screen the screen (you can do this with an iPhone) to save them as pictures on my phone. But this is not the only way I do it, with my phone. For example: If I read a paper book I underline the words. If I read an online article with a lot of positive words I send the article to my email inbox with the subject “to research this text for positive words” and when I have time I re-read the article and extract the positive words.

Another day, when I have time, I look on my phone, look through the pictures and extract the words to manually add the words to a list in my notebook. I also do a search of that word on The Free Dictionary, Wikipedia, and Google. I research the word in google to read some articles that contain that word. Some of the words that I find are not in The Free Dictionary or Wikipedia and some are not even on Google. How can a word not exist in Google? Because if I read the text in a paper book  and no one has used that word in an article, then the word or phrase does not exist in google. Or people will insert a positive word in a motivational text in a picture, and Google can not read that text (but I can, because I see it with my eyes).

To understand better what I do I am attaching some pictures.

You can see that the words are added in different time periods because are written with different pens in different colors. After I complete two pages of positive words or phrases, I add these words in an excel. When I add the words in the excel, I am again searching the words on the internet to better understand them (I read articles or the explanation in different dictionaries).

When I have time (this might be in couples of weeks because researching positive words is my passion and I have a day job) I add the words in the online list of positive words.

Then something super amazing happens: the people all around the world are commenting online on the list/social networks or sends me messages through my newsletter/website/social platforms. Some of the social platforms of Positive Words Research are Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr. The people are commenting the positive words, telling me that, they do not consider a word being positive, that is negative or more negative than positive. For example, a person said to me that the word: “blessing” is not positive, is more negative. Based on their messages I conclude if I delete a word from the online list or I keep it. For example, I kept the word “blessing” in the list. Also, people are sending me words or phrases that they think are positive and that I should add them to the list. Some of the words are not on the list or some of them are already on the list.

My observations and conclusions as a researcher are based on my own training and experience. I will mention some well-known people from the foundation of my training and experience:

PSYCHOLOGY

I have studied the work of Albert Ellis which invented REBT therapy (rational emotional behavior thereby). REBT is more evolved than NLP (neuro-linguistic programming). After studying a lot of Albert Ellis books especially “Guide to a rational living” I understood the significance that internal dialogue (words that we use when we think) has on our mental health and happiness level. This is one of the main reason why I do my work: to make a list of positive words and put it freely at the disposal of people so that they can learn and choose positive words to think better thought (for their mental health and happiness). All these positive words help a person to have a healthy mind.

SCIENCE/QUANTUM PHYSICS

I have studied the work of Nassim Haramein that coordinates The Resonance Project.

SPIRITUALITY/ENERGY CLEARING/ENERGY HEALING

I have studied the works of Christie Marie Sheldon. For example, from her, I have included the positive phrase “pure love and light” into the list of positive words. I have studied the work of Vishen Lakhiani that created Mindvalley.

During my researches, I have discovered a lot of spiritual texts and noticed that spiritual people use an abundance of positive words in their text. Therefore, I have extracted the positive words and phrases from their text and included in my list, for normal people to look through the list, wonder about the meaning of the word, look for it and learn how to be happier. For example the word “loving kindness” or “kindness” or even “happiness” when you search it online you find a lot of resources that you can read and learn how to improve your well-being. Including “well-being” is a positive word.

LISTS OF POSITIVE WORDS/SENTIMENT ANALYSIS

I have studied all the list of positive words from the internet such as:

At present, the research of positive words is in progress and a lot of things need to be done. I have a lot of things to do: to decided more than 1500 words that are positive or not, to add words to the online list, to translate the list of positive words in other languages (to translate the new positive words for the lists that I already translated), to research more text and extract more positive words, to reply to many comments and emails that I receive.

For example I want to research the religious texts from my country Romania to complete the list of positive words in Romanian (in Romanian the list of positive words is called “Lista de cuvinte pozitive”) because in my country I discovered that something different is happening, than in other countries: most of the highly spiritual (highly positive words) are found in the religious text (like scriptures, psalms, or text written by priests, saints that profoundly believe in God). So I need to go through all this text and extract the positive words or phrases. Which I will do, in my life, before I reach 100 years old.

I am working to create a better version of the online application that I call Positive Words Researcher. Positive Words Researcher is a free online application which finds the positive words in a text. I want to make the application on categories (usual/normal positive words and highly spiritual positive words) and to also make it in more languages.

For everyone that wants to use my researches on positive words for different project please contact me and tell me about your project and if you need to reference your work please use this:

Based on researches done by Calin Elena Daniela at Positive Words Research, based on the list of positive words found at http://positivewordsresearch.com/list-of-positive-words

I understand that is something new for people to reference a link, but this is how things are done nowadays. We do our researchers and document them not on paper anymore, but on the internet. Thank you for referencing my work in your project. Researching positive words is my passion and I will do these many years from now.

Have a blissful day full of magic awesomeness and lots of happiness,

Calin Elena Daniela, the founder of Positive Words Research
