Why not let your users do the marketing for you?

Yesterday, I had a phone call with one of my junior developers who asked something like this,

Is there any chance if we don’t have a budget for marketing, can we develop an app that doesn't need any marketing?

The answer was a big “No.” If you develop an app, then you need to invest your time to do some marketing. There is a popular saying, “Without marketing, a good product is a daydream and without a good product, marketing is a nightmare.”

Everything needs marketing. Even Apple couldn’t launch a product without going extra miles for marketing. If you…


No matter how few ads you show, some people will still complain

I just checked my Admob revenue and it shows I’ve earned $3000+ from showing ads without annoying my app users. When it’s about making money from showing ads, it has some pitfalls. In this modern era, nobody actually wants to waste their time on seeing ads. Simply ads are annoying. But showing less amount of it you can make ads not terrible to watch. Showing lots of ads will annoy users and in long run, those apps lose an incredible amount of users hence remarkable revenue loss.

Even if you have very few ads in your app, some people will…

1. Argument vs Parameter

In your whole career, I’m sure somewhere in some interview you’ll be asked about the difference between argument and parameter. You may already knew about these but here is once again a little reminder that we often forget it when we need it most like in an interview session.

Argument is nothing but what you are passing in your method/function. It can be any type of variable whether you’ve initialized it or not.

Parameter is something that catch your passing variables / arguments. Here you’ve to always mention the type of variable you’re catching in the method.

#2. Don’t depend on your salary income

One Thursday night after I came from the office, I watched the UP IN THE AIR movie which is a masterpiece of Jason Reitman.

The movie story started with a guy named Ryan Bingham whose job is just firing people from the company.

He started firing employees who worked for the company for almost a decade. And many of them worked for almost 20 years. Over the passage of time, technology came and replaced humans in that company. Now, the company doesn’t need that large scale of employees anymore. Their job can be done setting just one computer system. Though…


Is Building App Worth The Time?

Earning money while I sleep is the best thing that ever happened to me. I couldn’t believe that one day I can make money without actively doing anything. My first passive income started with an app Quote Writer. Building the app to make money was never my intention in the first place. But, after publishing the app when I saw some traction in the downloads, I thought why not let’s make some money out of it. So, I started to think about all the ways I can make money from my app.

There are many options if you want to…


Things might you learn from me to always get 5 stars review

It was the year 2016. I created my first freelancer account in Fiverr. Back then I had only one skill and that was Professional Presentation Designing. I started pitching buyers in Fiverr to sell my presentation design gig. I stayed up all night to just land my first freelance job. Few days after creating my freelancer account, my luck found a way to me. I got my first project. I shouted a big Yaa-huuu at that time, really!

After getting the first job in Fiverr, I was very excited to work on it. I rushed on Powerpoint and completed my…


Forget about that packages you rely on for material search

As a developer, we are all habitual to use plugin/libraries to achieve what's required to develop for our project. If there is not default design in our project, then the first thing that comes in our mind, is there any open-source library exists for this kind of implementation?

So after getting the design file from the design team for any project, we start searching in GitHub if any lifesaver programmer already created the library for achieving that particular thing. Especially it happens every time for design-related stuff in our project.

Why?

Because in every team, we have some outstanding designer who…


Why You Should Not Write to Make Money!

Making money out of writing was never a goal for me. Even money never motivated me to write a sentence. I have never written any piece within the last 1 year for the money. Like everyone, I’ve written many articles for my own pleasure, for empowering others.

When I had something great to say, I picked up my keyboard and started jotting down my thoughts. When I found a way to improve our lifestyle, daily habits I came to the keyboard and typed out an article. When I figured out a way to make something great I started typing.

How I applied these lessons from The Richest Man in Babylon and accumulating wealth!

If you want to be happy, study happiness. If you want to be wealthy, Study wealth — Jim Rohn said it perfectly that to become wealthy you need to learn it.

But some people would say money is the devil of all sins. It’s actually not. We all need money. And we simply think who has money is a bad person. You can not get rich by hating rich people. Money is not all reason for devil works. Money doesn’t have the power to make a bad person, good. Similarly, it doesn’t make a person good if he or she…

Advertising in space is like advertising all over the world. In today’s world, the only way companies can show you advertise if you’re hooked with some sort of media like TV, Newspaper, or the internet. To do successful marketing, companies need to spend billions of dollars each year.
