Greg Jacobs has just launched his new sky builder software which will guide you through the whole process of making money online with apps. It costs $997 to get the whole system and this is only for serious people who really want to set up a big business. I can not purchase this because this is out my budget but here are some features of sky builder and frequently asked questions related to what is skybuilder…
COMPONENTS OF SKY BUILDER
The Original Beast. SkyBuilder Cloud is the core component software that allows you to create your own mobile niche apps with a few clicks of the button. Using in-line technology, SBCloud creates up-to-date, beautiful and technologically-advanced optimized apps that are sure to get massive rankings on the app store and garner you thousands of downloads.
A derivative of SBCloud that is specially designed so that you can create (and sell) apps to local small businesses. Because of the ease and speed of SBSMB, you can actually create a “demo” app for their business before the client meeting and have them already sold at the gates and use the meeting to discuss refinement to the app. This beast is made so you can sell!
The Secret Sauce of App Niche Research. Proper keyword research is the difference between an app with tens of thousands of downloads and ones with NOTHING. In addition the “old” methods of keyword research do not apply anymore. Keyword Genesis is an innovative program that allows you to deep research AppStore niches and efficiently pick the winners and discard the losers. Without Keyword Genesis you risk investing a lot of time, money and effort into niches that have little to no potential returns.
WPSky WordPress Plugin
The perfect cross-over between the web at large and your Mobile app and its downloads. WPSky transforms a simple existing WordPress blog into a “download machine” for your mobile app by detecting visitors arriving from a smartphone and redirecting them to the appropriate page so that they can download your app. Seems simple enough, but when we properly implemented WPSky on our blogs, it increased our app downloads by over 68%.
SkyTheme Premium is a unique WordPress theme designed for turning your WordPress Blog into a mobile promotion machine. Correct usage of SkyTheme Premium will allow you to leverage large amounts of “web traffic” and funnel those visitors to the high value download of your SkyBuilder apps. SkyTheme Premium is the bridge that you require to cross the chasm between the web and mobile.
Tier 1 Training
Hours of detailed instructional videos and hundreds of pages of intricate PDF’s, the Tier 1 Training section is a mobile app marketers dream as it not only explains how to use all the “buttons and knobs” on the SkyBuilder software, but it also gives detailed guidance on how to actually structure the apps you create into a profitable business.
FEATURES OF SKY BUILDER
True Unlimited Apps – Some app creators will charge you a monthly fee PER app that is exorbitant. This is just not a practical business model. With SkyBuilder you get True Unlimited Apps. That means with your license you can create and own as many Apps as you like with no per app charge or maintenance fees. It is important for you to have full control over your business with the ability to scale and the reason why TRUE Unlimited Apps are critical to your business success.
Bottomless Push Notifications – Some “services” will charge you extra for push notifications – either on a subscription or on a per-push basis. Others will simply limit the amount of Pushes you can do so it is not practical for your business model. With SkyBuilder you get the complete business toolkit in one go. Meaning that with your license, you will have access to push as much as you like whenever you like. It is your App so you have that right. In addition you’ll have access and be integrated into the AirPush marketplace where you can actually get paid on a CPM basis for allowing others to serve their own push notifications to all of the people that have installed you app. Think about the possibilities.
AdMob+ Integration – With AdMob+ Integration you instantly have the option to display ads from ADMob or up to 9 other mobile monetization networks on your apps. You can also take advantage of a special embedded feature that allows you to custom display your own ads. So if you wanted to cross-promote your other apps or do a special affiliate promotion, then you can get this going with just a few clicks. This method is a KEY way to start earning money with your niche apps and available only on SkyBuilder.
AppStore Submission Wizard – Did you know that in order to have an AppBusiness and submit apps to the AppStore “usually” you need to own a Mac computer? Less than 10% of people own Mac computers. Now if you’re on a Mac – great! But if you’re in the other 90% this puts you in a tricky spot. The AppStore Submission Wizard makes it so that you can submit your app to the AppStore without have to spend lots of money on a Mac computer. (We just saved you 2k!) Simply open up your SkyBuilder control panel and follow the directions and you’ll be on your way to having your App in the App Store. Like all the SkyBuilder features there is no additional per-app or per-use cost for the AppStore Submission Wizard. It is all inclusive of your license because you deserve an all-in-one complete toolkit.
Premium SkyBuilder Support – When you submit a support ticket you want a real person to reply and not just some outsourced “robot” that barely understands your questions and is copying and pasting something that doesn’t even give you a proper answer. We don’t like this either! We understand that SkyBuilder is a Premium product and requires Premium support. Each one of our individually-trained SkyBuilder support staff is an actual user of SkyBuilder as well and has their own AppBusiness. So you can rest assured when you ask a question of our support desk that you are going to be getting back an answer you can depend on.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT SKY BUILDER
Now what we are going to do is answer some Frequently Asked Questions regarding SkyBuilder to assist you in making your buying decision.
Question: Greg, I am prepared to make the initial investment to get started with SkyBuilder…but I know that sometimes there are extra costs that creep up before I can actually start earning. Can you give me an idea of what else I am going to have to invest in and where to get it after I buy SkyBuilder?
Answer: Very important question to ask because you need to know the whole picture before you plunge forward. Some courses will teach you or give you templates to actually develop a complicated app. What some do not undetstand is that will have to and spend another $3000-$5000 on a “outsourcer” to actually make the app for you. Others will give you some “software” to make apps but then they charge you $79 per month PER app or even a Flat Fee per APP you make! No matter the model, these costs ADD UP and certainly are not free.
The wonderful thing about SkyBuilder is that it was designed with the user (you in mind) so it has no extra costs. With your SkyBuilder license you can build UNLIMITED APPS with no extra fee per app. The beauty is that you also own these outright. “Other companies” actually retain ownership rights to the apps so you are not actually building mobile real estate but paying someone else so they can build assets.
However actually claiming ownership of your apps does have a small cost in that you must pay to access the AppStore. If you choose to create apps for the AppStore…Apple will charge you $99 per year to maintain your AppStore account. If you choose to go with the Android store (Google Play) then it is a $25 for a lifetime – payable to Google.
Question: Greg, can you tell me again about the different business models I can use with SkyBuilder?
Answer: Ahh, straight to the point. Now while I never underestimate the ingenuity of my customers to come up with ideas to use my software beyond what I can provide…there are 2 main business models using SkyBuilder with an extra 3rd one that will unlock at a certain point.
Method 1 – SkyBuilder SMB – This is so simple it hurts. You simply approach a local or web-based business and offer to build them a mobile app. In fact using SkyBuilder is so fast and easy that you can actually build the App for them first (to demo) and then sell it to them afterwards. You can either charge a flat rate of $500-$2000 or (since you own the App) even get them paying you $100 a month to maintain their app for them. What is great about this is…most of the times you still maintain legal ownership of the App. Many people have found success with this method and all of the sales methods for the SMB model are discussed in detail in the SkyBuilder training.
Method 2 – SkyBuilder Cloud – Equally lucrative and appealing to people who just don’t want to deal with selling to small businesses. The SkyBuilder Cloud model involves using Keyword Genesis to do in App “niche” research to find underdeveloped niches with lots of searches and very few apps. What you do then is put up an App with SkyBuilder and generally allow it to be downloaded for free (you can charge if you want as well, but testing shows that we actually earn more money by giving away for free) .
You are integrated with up to 10 different mobile ad networks including Google AdMob. Also since you have UNLIMITED Push notifications with your SkyBuilder license…you can “push” notices towards promotions of your own or using the monetized AirPush Service.
Method 3 – Virtual Real Estate – Since with your SkyBuilder License you actually OWN all of your own apps…you can build a significant portfolio of Mobile Apps and then sell your business. Easy? Well it is more of a long-term strategy, but it does offer a goal and a significant forcast to work towards.
Question: Can I use this to build a game like Angry Birds?
Answer: To build a game like Angry Birds would likely cost you minimum $10,000 to get started with an outsourcer and that would just be the beginning of your investment. SkyBuilder is a different business model that allows you to build both Niche-information apps that you can monetize via AdMob and Small Business Apps that you can sell to your client base. Since you have the ability to create unlimited apps this is a much more “predictable” income stream which gives you the potential to expand your business via the intelligent scaling models we provide
Question: Do I need my own Smartphone to use SkyBuilder?
Answer: Funnily enough you can actually build your entire Mobile App Empire and NEVER even own a Smartphone or tablet yourself. That is how the internet works. All-inclusive within the SkyBuilder Platform – you can build, test and distribute your app without even having an iPhone or Android phone of your own. However, after you make a bit of money, it may be a cool idea to get one – just so you can get in on the craze!
Question: Do I need to own a Mac computer to do this?
Answer: It is a great question and in the past the answer would be yes because before SkyBuilder you needed to own a Mac computer to submit your Apps to the AppStore. However we have recognized that not everybody wants to go out and buy an expensive computer. So we have created the “AppStore Submission Engine”. Using our server you will be able to submit your App to the AppStore and maintain it without ever having to invest in an expensive Mac computer.
Question: Will SkyBuilder Work in other countries than the USA and other Languages than English. Specifically regarding the Local Business Model?
Answer: Great question. You can customize the text of the tabs and buttons within SkyBuilder to any Roman language. (so no Japanese for example) So when creating your app, you simply change these key navigation aspects to your language. In addition the content you put in the Apps is created by you so it can be in your own language and targeted to you.
Regarding Local business aspects. Currently Local News works via either a keyword or Geo-targeting the user. The Geo Targeting works in almost all countries for local news or you can just put in the name of a city hard-coded and it will always pull news based on that keyword you inputted. Other aspects work fine as they are tied into the native maps and location based functions of your phone. The only feature not working outside the USA is the localized Daily deals which you can work around by getting the feed code (all will have them) from your local daily deals provider and pasting it into the WYSWYG editor so you create the same net effect with simply one extra step So the blanket answer is “Yes, SkyBuilder works for all countries”
Question: Do I need my own website for this? Where are the “Apps” Hosted?
Answer: The Apps are hosted on the “AppStore” or the Google Play Store, so you do not need your own website to use SkyBuilder. However, for those that do own existing websites, with your SkyBuilder license you will be given access to the premium WordPress plugin WPSky which when enabled will, among other things, drive mobile visitors of your website to your app – hence leveraging your existing website traffic in order to increase your App downloads.
In addition with your license of SkyBuilder you will be given access to the complete SkyTheme Premium. This is an originally-designed and optimized from the ground up WordPress theme that is designed to specifically draw and drive more traffic to your mobile app.
So the answer is “no” – you don’t need a website and can do just fine without one. However…with the provided tools you may want to consider using web-promotion as part of your SkyBuilding toolkit.
Question: I have heard that sometimes people have trouble getting Approved in the AppStore. Will this be a problem for me?
Answer: The short answer is it will not be a problem if you follow the directions. The AppStore is somewhat selective about which apps it approves as they must meet certain criteria. If you follow the SkyBuilder training methods and build apps with good content and polish and follow our submission methods…there is generally no problem getting approved. However be warned that SkyBuilder is just a tool and like all tools if used in a careless way then the apps created of course would not be approved. However if you follow the instructions in the SkyTrainers section then getting your apps approved should not be an issue.
Question: I heard about XXXXX offering a similar service to build apps. How is SkyBuilder different?
Answer: Great question. There are numerous “App Makers” out their on the market. Some “claim” to be free, while others claim to offer “unlimited” apps. While a few just have a fancy logo and openly gouge you on price. The reality is that if you do a direct feature comparison on what sort of apps SkyBuilder and its “competitors” can produce that generally SkyBuilder has all of the features of the other ones, but a few more that we review above on this page. The reason for this is we studied all of the competitors and made sure that there was nothing on us.
Even more important than this, SkyBuilder is offering is what we call TRUE UNLIMITED Apps. Meaning that with your SkyBuilder License you get to create as many apps as you like with your license with no extra ‘per app’ charge. Make as many as you like. Do whatever you like with them. No Extra charges. Period.
Question: I have heard that some of these services don’t let you own your apps. Will I own my Apps with SkyBuilder?
Answer: ABSOUTELY YES, you maintain 100% legal ownership of all your apps with SkyBuilder. Before we expand let me tell you a short story. A good friend of mine and fellow software developer, started experimenting with Mobile Apps last year. At the time there was a certain service that for $79 a month they would let you build ONE APP. (yes…$79 for one app) which is crazy expensive by today’s standards. Well what happened is he built the App using their system and they submitted it to the AppStore for him. He was a clever marketer and knew how to do proper App Niche research and before long his App was earning $500 a day in revenue. Not bad.
However what happened next was a major wake-up call for his business. He went and read the fine print and realized that he in fact did not own this app. Rather the company that he was paying $79 a month to maintained legal ownership of this app. So in theory at any moment they could simply “take over” and take his $500 a day and he would have no recourse. Fortunately they haven’t done that (yet) but they did something almost as bad.
They actually went and made a direct copy of his App…just changing a few things around and took over his top position on the AppStore. Suddenly his income dropped dramatically. When he confronted them about it, they admitted to copying him and told him to read the terms of service. Ugghh.
So again, the answer is that with SkyBuilder you maintain 100% complete legal ownership and control of your App. This is IMPERATIVE because down the road you are going to want to sell your Apps and your app business for x18 the monthly income so you need to own it in order to sell it.
Question: Ok I understand that Greg…it’s clear I need to OWN my app…but what is to stop you at SkyBuilder from Copying my App like that other “company” did?
Answer: Well the technical answer is that because the other companies maintain legal ownership and actually submit the Apps through their own AppStore account they can actually see the stats on which app is popular and then reverse engineer from there. With SkyBuilder…all we do is Build the Apps and offer you assistance in getting them submitted. So at the end of the day you still own your App. Hence only you can know the actual statistics from the AppStore because it is your account. Sure in theory we could go and research on the AppStore and find a popular app and maybe figure out it is a SkyBuilder app. But by that method we are no different than anybody else doing research on the AppStore.
But from a moral and business standpoint…we have better things to do than copy your apps. These sort of things tend to catch up with you and we are more concerned with our long term business prospects and corporate reputation than trying to make some quick buck. We are here to stay and the customer is always #1.
Question: When I sell my Apps…who maintains actual ownership of the App?
Answer: It’s entirely up to you. If you are selling to a SMB (Small Business) Client you may wish to maintain control of the App just because they most likely will not want to be bothered with managing it and can instead pay you a monthly fee However if you are selling your SkyBuilder Cloud Niche App Portfolio to someone in the industry…odds are they are going to want to take complete legal control, which will be acceptable as they will be paying you handsomely.
Question: I need to use SkyBuilder to make money in the next 48 hours. Is this possible?
Answer: SkyBuilder is not a “Business Opportunity” nor a “get rich quick” scheme. It is software toolkit that generates Mobile apps according to your certain criteria. We can recommend some techniques that others have followed to get started quickly and these are covered in the 4 Hour Cash Balloon and we have seen many find MASSIVE success by following this guide, however as with all online businesses, ultimately you are responsible for your own success which depends upon a number of factors including proper plan, ability and commitment. More on this within The 4 Hour Cash Balloon Quick Start Guide.
Question: Greg, I know this is going to work for me and I am sold. Please tell me how I can acquire my exclusive license of SkyBuilder?
Answer: As many people are already aware, there are a limited number of SkyBuilder licenses being released today at a very special market rate. The deal is that after these licenses are sold out, then SkyBuilder will be removed from the market and you will no longer be able to acquire a license. This means that if you want to secure your license of SkyBuilder, then you need to act now and click on this link, as this page may be removed at any moment.
Question: Greg, I know I want SkyBuilder but maybe not today. Can I come back and get it later?
Answer: See the above question. The reality is that as soon as our limited licenses are sold…then this page will be removed…the training will begin and you will be left out. The bottom line is that if you want to get in on your exclusive license of SkyBuilder, then this is your only chance. Tomorrow may be too late.
Question: Ok, I am going to get my SkyBuilder but I still have my doubts. Is there any sort of Guarantee so I can try it out?
Answer: Yes, we make it easy and a no-brainer for you. We offer a 100% unconditional 30 day money back guarantee. This means that for whatever reason (or no reason – you don’t need to give us one) you would like a refund…just contact our support desk within 30 days of purchase and your refund will be issued no-quibble/no hassle. We want you to leave us satisfied whether you are our customer or not. We are in the business of pleasing and only want to work with those people that want to work with us.
