I have been creating Android apps since last 4 years and have made good money from admob. All the apps created were niche based apps so far like religious apps, relationship apps, self help, hacks etc. All the money earned has been from admob
Today, I am starting with a new developers account and new admob. My plan is to build a email list + reach $1000 per month from this account in next 3 months. This will be more or less like an experiment because I will be reskinning source codes from codecanyon and other marketplaces from where we can simply get android apps source codes and reskin them.
I have tried reskinning in past unsuccessfully but with content based apps slowly dying, I decided now reskinning is the way to go again.
Plan: Publish atleast 1 android app per day for next 30 days and then do small promotions via Bing, twitter and IFTTT.
Wish me luck and Lets get started. I will try to update this thread once a week.
Have any questions related to android apps, feel free to ask here.
