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.

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'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...

First off, Go Mobile is nothing more than an expensive reseller of the Biznessapps platform. The owner, Damien Zamora, was sued some years ago for selling an internet marketing product that was full of BS. He settled with the government.

Tamara, you are a little off on the pricing. Biznessapps charges the customer $69/mo to host a published app that will work on iphone, ipad and android. If you become a reseller for them, they charge you $300/month. However, with that $300 you get hosting for 10 apps. Essentially, your hosting costs drop to $30/month. Last I looked, if you sign up with go mobile and actually sell and publish an app, go mobile will charge you $39.95/month. They are making $10 per month per app off of you. They will tell you to charge your customer the $39.95 or more. So there is a monthly hosting charge with go mobile.

To me, it makes much more sense to become a reseller than pay go mobile $1000. However, if you don't want to lay out the $300/month at first, you can simply sell through Biznessapps. If you are worried about customers bypassing you and going directly to Biznessapps, there are numerous resellers for Biznessapps that are cheaper than Go Mobile. I believe that Warrior Dave Iago is reselling it at apppowder.com for a lot less than $1000. (I am not an affiliate for Dave).

Tabitha-please see my above comment. Yes, Damien Zamora does have a history of not being the most honest person. What is more interesting though is that he is now promoting Amazon kindle publishing to his Go mobile clients and others. He has or had a webinar on it. I wasn't in on it but I am sure it cost money to get in on that. What does that tell you? To me, it says he has pitched and sold his go mobile app opportunity to every biz op seeker he can find and now he needs to move on to the next shiny object. I am guessing he made a ton of money off of getting people to fork over $1000 each (some say millions) to get in but very few are actually selling apps. Sadly, most biz op seekers are not good salespeople and I think most got caught up in the hype of mobile apps. Also, if you go into the mobile marketing section of this forum you can read more about the debate on how many small businesses actually need or want native mobile apps. I'm not saying that native apps aren't good for some businesses, they are great for certain situations. But please don't believe that every small business owner is just going to throw money at you.

My analogy is simple: In the mobile "gold rush" Damien is selling (someone else's) picks and axes and telling everyone how easy it will be to find gold.

Pretty much what I thought. I am on person's list that I will soon be off of that sent an invite to this webinar today. I had a business meeting that conflicted with it, but it wasn't hard to find replays of the webinar online (a red flag right there). Once I downloaded the video and saw what it was, I knew I had bookmarked something liked it for future reference. Reading here, I remembered it was from Appsumo which advertises on Facebook a lot that I had found Bizness Apps before. When I had looked over the features, I was still left with wondering what is so compelling to have the hassle of an app (which has to be cross platform) versus a well done mobile website which is automatically cross platform. Just about anything most businesses would want to offer to their customer on their phone I can do nicely on a good lightweight fast mobile website starting from the php template setup of of WillR's MyMobileBusiness WSO. I'm thinking the only reason to do an app really is if the client has their heart set on that. So why not offer a mobile site to a business and have the app option as an up sell add-on (from something like Bizness Apps). I don't think it serves the small business client well to only sell them an app. After all take it from a potential customer's viewpoint. For myself as a customer, I already have 9 plus screens of apps and folders most of which I rarely use. I really have no desire to fill up my phone with apps from local businesses. I'm happy to use and bookmark their website, if it's got a great mobile formatted version, but down load apps for every business, really ? A business that want's an unusual app for some reason that makes sense and goes beyond what a mobile site can do is not going be satisfied with the Bizness Apps platform and will still need to have custom written app with a starting price of several thousand.

and HTML5 is just going to make websites even more powerful. The geolocation feature that telnav has in beta right now for example,
HTML 5 Geolocation Demo and Examples

Also, Google just released the Android version of their Chrome web browser. Website is far from gone, just the desktop only version is.

Once I downloaded the video and saw what it was, I knew I had bookmarked something liked it for future reference. Reading here, I remembered it was from Appsumo which advertises on Facebook a lot that I had found Bizness Apps before. When I had looked over the features, I was still left with wondering what is so compelling to have the hassle of an app (which has to be cross platform) versus a well done mobile website which is automatically cross platform. Just about anything most businesses would want to offer to their customer on their phone I can do nicely on a good lightweight fast mobile website starting from the php template setup of of WillR's MyMobileBusiness WSO. I'm thinking the only reason to do an app really is if the client has their heart set on that. So why not offer a mobile site to a business and have the app option as an up sell add-on (from something like Bizness Apps). I don't think it serves the small business client well to only sell them an app. After all take it from a potential customer's viewpoint. For myself as a customer, I already have 9 plus screens of apps and folders most of which I rarely use. I really have no desire to fill up my phone with apps from local businesses. I'm happy to use and bookmark their website, if it's got a great mobile formatted version, but down load apps for every business, really ? A business that want's an unusual app for some reason that makes sense and goes beyond what a mobile site can do is not going be satisfied with the Bizness Apps platform and will still need to have custom written app with a starting price of several thousand.

and HTML5 is just going to make websites even more powerful. The geolocation feature that telnav has in beta right now for example,
HTML 5 Geolocation Demo and Examples

Also, Google just released the Android version of their Chrome web browser. Website is far from gone, just the desktop only version is.

-KBS
Perceived value of an "App" is much higher...

I mean, nearly all small business owners know that it's not a miracle to develop a normal (desktop) website... now, if you add the word HTML5 they will just assume that it's a little bit harder than "normal" website.

However, with "APPS" it reminds them of how special they feel when they themselves download applications, which have been "magically" uploaded (somehow) to app store, or Android market...etc..

I think people are placing to much importance on these "downloadable apps". If you build the mobile website right there is no need for these ridiculous prices.

Just as a quick update.

Was on a call last night with these guys, I did pull the trigger. Afterwards, I started to say "wow, this all looks very familiar"

I pulled the trigger about 15 minutes into the call. I was told the cost was $997. Wow, okay.... so $997 goes to GoMobile for who knows what...... they certainly are not providing anything unique.

I finally asked whoever was running the chat box if they were a reseller of BiznessApps. Had to ask 10 times, but finally got the answer "yes".

I will say this, Bizness Apps is amazing, but I hate the monthly fees. I will be refunding my purchase with GoMobile (why have the middle-man?) and doing a white-label solution with Bizness Apps only.

Wish I'd done a bit more research before buying. This was a top rated thread. Something just didn't feel right on that call.

The founder and CEO of the company was answering questions and said "App-Solutely" when asked "can this do games" and other questions. My hair started to raise there... the guys are not honest. Or at least not forthcoming. Their goal : Money, not the success of their 'students'.

I have the feeling that this is a goofy question, but here goes...

If gomobile solutions is $997 (and they are offering unlimited 'licenses' for that price), plus $39.95/mo for push notifications ... why is this considered less of a good deal than working directly with BiznessApps, who charge $300/month?

If someone could clarify that, I be very grateful.

Thanks.

[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.].
The monthly sounds better to me versus a upfront fee, monthly may be more costly in the longrun but one may just choose to leave that opportunity and the monthly works better for that.

Go Mobile charges you the same $30 a month for 10 the $997 is on top of. They have 3 plans that you can choose from this plan is the highest. But since they are a reseller of biznessapps they operate the same way.

They say that the money $997 is to pay the affiliate a commission and money to them for providing superior support that is no match to biznessapps, additional learning material and help, additional features not available to biznessapps that they have built. In addition they have an integrated system for billing and financing to help their resellers.

Still with all the bells and whistles I am not sure I am feeling the $997 FEE

I think they've reopened it again - and Michael X is promoting it.

harlan,
this thread is about 'gomobile solutions' and you claim you are an affiliate for 'GoMobile' while billing yourself as 'GoMobile Solutions' on GoToWebinar and citrixonline.com.

Are you GoMobile, GoMobile Solutions, or an affiliate for GoMobile, portraying yourself as GoMobile Solutions, etc?. And, why not be direct about your relationship with them and
Damien Zamora (if any), in the first place?

Dwight,

Nice of you to show up and revive a thread that is months old.

I am an affiliate of GoMobile and I think they have a good product.

harlin, who's dwight? Not me.

I just found it odd that you sometimes promote yourself as GoMobile Solutions, but claim to be an affiliate. As far as that goes, I think the Warriors on this thread have pretty much exposed GoMobile Solutions for what it is.

I've never promoted myself as GoMobile solutions.

Dwight, you should know better.

Oh yeah, you're not Dwight.
