    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.

    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

      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!.
  • Profile picture of the author MatthewNewnham
    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...
  • Profile picture of the author MatthewNewnham
    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.
  • Profile picture of the author Dupois
    I haven't joined BiznessApps yet, but it's highly possible that GoMobile is simply a very expensive reseller for them.

      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.].

    MobileMarketer - you are a gem. This is exactly what I was looking for. Something in my gut kept telling me not to hit that buy button. Now it makes sense as to why.

      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.

    Our HTML5 Mobile App Builder and White Label Reseller Platform would be good for him to check out. Profit margins are great. View the release video here

    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'.
  • Profile picture of the author webABCs
    I refunded several weeks ago...it is a reseller setup and not a real business.
    • Profile picture of the author FeelingFree
      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.

    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

    Wow I really respect this forum. I almost pulled the trigger on Go Mobile too.
