There are millions of apps in the app store for both Apple and Android devices. How exactly do you build and run a successful app startup as an appreneur? That’s the million (and possibly billion dollar) question!
Although no single person has the exact formula, we can look at the basic principles that’ll help you build, run, and manage a successful app startup.
An app startup is no different than a newly formed business or startup regardless of the market or industry.
Successful app startups have a number of principles of why they are successful and continue on a course of success.
Aside from looking at previously successful app’s and trying to reverse engineer them – let’s take a look at what make a successful startup, successful.
Past Successful Startups
When it comes to successful startups, whether it’s for an app business or any other form of business, there are some principles that can help with success.
There are hundreds of thousands of books that address how to become successful in business and startups.
Instead of trying to re-invent the wheel – it’s easier to just look and reverse engineer the successful startups that have come before and see what helped to make them successful.
Two books we’ve recently come across that really do a great job of explaining the principles, strategies, and drivers to a successful business and app are Peter Thiel’s Going from Zero to One and Eric Ries’s The Lean Startup.
We highly recommend picking up and reading these books for invaluable insights, strategies, tactics, case studies, and principles on how to help your app startup become as successful as possible.
Like most things in life, becoming successful takes patience and lots of hard work.
However, with these powerful insights, strategies, and principles – you’ll be ready to take on the world!
If you’re not a reader, no worries – we got your solution.
Watch, learn, and enjoy!
