    This is worth it.

    If your son has the tenacity to study the videos and to the technical building using the gomobile software, it's a cinch.

    It also requires some marketing and selling. You sell small to medium sized businesses an app for their business, one their customers can download.

    This is an international product, though some of the features are US based only right now.

    it's an investment, and you can definitely make your money back by selling just one or two apps.

    I'd go for it.

    even if someone else did the selling, your son can learn to build them and make his money that way.

    i'm having my son make them, he makes money and I sell them and make money.

    very cool.

    Hey there,

    Can you give me the contact details for Go Mobile, I have a relative also that needs something to do and I want to sign him up.

    Thanks

    I did a webinar with Jeff about it, as the idea of quickly building apps kind of fascinates me. Instead of spending $2-$3k which has been my experience before.

    If you want to see the webinar, you can go to:

    http://watchmywebinar.com/replay/ben/

    You can also find the contact details (and phone number) there.

    What it does is build apps which have been preconfigured to be perfect for local businesses in lots of different niches. You can also integrate your own graphics or get them to do them for you at an additional cost.

    Hi Ben,

    I got a link to the webinar the other day and I thought it looked okay. My problem with it is that there are people now doing mobile apps now for $500 to $750 all over the place. So the ongoing fees that are being charged by the GoMobile make it impossible to make money. Any suggestions?

    Hi Dane,

    It surprises me you are finding that, as I am finding the opposite. I have put several apps projects on odesk and once have filtered out those that I wouldn't work with, the bids START at about $2k.

    What you have here, is something which has a huge choice of functionality that can be sold for a very low price.

    At the end of the day, two people can sell the same thing for very different prices. Just like when offering SEO services you can pay a thousand dollars and get something great or pay a thousand dollars and throw it down the drain. It's what you offer your customer.

    Funny what you say about the ongoing, as in a weird way I see it as an advantage for the customer. On another thread, people complained about the recent automated webinar product that was launched as there was NOT an ongoing charge and were skeptical whether it would be kept up to date and developed. As it happens, it was and still is.

    By having an ongoing charge gives a lot more confidence to the customer that they won't be left with something in 6 months or a year that is obsolete or that they can't do anything with.

    Maybe but $1000 at the front end before you even get to the client? I was inquiring on behalf of a relative who lives in New Zealand. He's out of work and needs something to get on with, will it work over there?

    No. You can do multiple apps. So, it is far less than that.

    I had purchased this but did some research on the person that is stated to be the company president (but not the guy that is doing the webinars). He does not have a great track record, which caused me to change my mind and get a refund (which was done without incident). Also, 30 days is not enough time to accurately assess this service, which is the stated refund policy. This sounds like a great idea, but it'll be interesting to see what happens once the refund period passes.

    Thanks...

    Too many times people are suckered into buying crap on here and the many other forums out there. I've been taken only once and that was enough.

    I have been doing some research and I can do exactly what these guys have set up at a fraction of the cost and in some instances free...

    I'm an affiliate for GoMobile.

    I built my first app last week.

    It took about two hours.

    It will sell for about 2k.

    Now I'm just going to copy that one and change the details for different companies.

    Watch the webinar Ben posted.

    Good stuff

    I saw the webinar and it was impressive. They over deliver with the training. But $997 for what you really want, the App builder? You can do the same here for free: appmakr.com

    Like the idea of free, Vincenzo, but haven't the foggiest of how to do anything in appmakr.com, and I thought I was tech-savvy. Grrrr...

    I'm also looking at these guys: All your software in one nice little burrito | AppSumo.com, who seem to have a similar setup to GoMobile, but not as many templates, and perhaps not as many off the shelf features. Still, a pretty good start...

    Sorry folks, AppSumo's link tracking is clever. I was trying to highlight their deal for lifetime membership to Bizness Apps - iPhone, Android, HTML5, & iPad apps for small businesses for $299.

    BiznessApps looks to be much better value than GoMobile to me. After reading some of the comments in another thread here, I won't be forking out for GoMobile.

    I haven't joined BiznessApps yet, but it's highly possible that GoMobile is simply a very expensive reseller for them.

    I'm not sure if if AppMakr is really free. I'm cutting and pasting this from their site:

    "* $79.00/month per app subscription fee gives you full control of your app. Get access to advanced features and build, publish, and monetize your app. " AppMakr :: Publish your own iPhone apps for free!.

    Maybe it depends on how one looks at it.

    In this thread people mentioned GoMobile has front end fee of just under $1,000, but BiznessApps has a monthly fee starting at $39 ( Bizness Apps - Our Pricing) and if that's per app, and you build 10 apps ... in 3 months you've spent more on BiznessApps with no spending end in site, which would work out to be than you would have with GoMobile in the first place if I am understanding correctly. [Highly possible I'm not, I'm just sharing what I see as I do research realtime for a solution. Feel free to correct me.].

    I'm so glad you said this... because deep down, I was thinking the same thing! Regardless, I have a conference call with BiznessApps on Monday to talk about their white label solutions. Will post details late afternoon Monday EST about how it went, etc...

    Harlan - you mentioned that you were an affiliate and built an app back in December using GoMobile Solutions. Curious as to whether you have anything else you can contribute to this thread.

    For example:
    1. now that you've had the app for close to 2 months now, how's it performing for you?
    2. what do you consider the pros and cons of GMS?
    3. have you incurred any more fees, other than your initial financial outlay?

    I see benefits in the GMS platform, but have read some unfavorable things here on WF that have me a little unsettled about throwing that type of money out there...
