San Diego, California – Introducing the new appsplit, our newly-improved platform which we’re confident will change the entire apps industry. That’s a pretty bold statement to make but we are convinced it’s true. Here’s why you should be convinced too.
In essence, what the new appsplit offers is a platform for anyone and everyone who wants to get involved in the creation, development and business of apps. By “everyone” we truly mean it in the literal sense of the word. Everyone from app developers, entrepreneurs, fans, users, app owners, inventors, investors to the average Joe on the streets can now be part of the world of apps.
Our newly-improved platform gives people this opportunity through our three types of campaigns: Fund campaigns, Sell campaigns, and Develop campaigns.
With Fund campaigns, appsplit offers a crowdsourcing platform built specifically for apps. If you’re familiar with Kickstarter, this type of campaign on appsplit is like Kickstarter for apps.
App developers or owners can choose to start a Fund Campaign on appsplit and choose either an All-Or-None type of Fund campaign or an Open type of Fund campaign. After setting a funding goal, users can then fund your app. With All-Or-None Fund campaigns, the app developer or owner only gets the money if the funding goal is reached. An Open Fund campaigns means that the app developer gets whatever is raised.
With each Fund campaign on appsplit, the app developer describes why the amount set in the funding goal is needed. Furthermore, the app developer can indicate a set of rewards that users get based on the amount they give towards the funding goal. For example, an app developer can indicate that the names of individuals who gave $100 or more will get their names added to the credit of the app.
What differentiates us from just being a Kickstarter for apps is that we allow PayPal transactions for our campaigns. We also allow international campaigns opening the doors to more people being involved in the process. Furthermore, we have two other types of campaigns – Develop and Sell – which crowdsourcing platforms like Kickstarter or IndieGoGo do not have.
The Sell campaign on appsplit is app owners who may be looking to completely sell their app or a percent of their app.
Why sell? A developer or owner may choose to sell apps through appsplit in order to start a new project. Alternatively, a developer or owner may want to cash in a bit on their investment and may choose to sell a percentage of ownership of their app.
Have a great idea for an app? We’ve got the Develop campaign for you. This type of campaign opens the doors for anyone with a potentially game-changing app idea, but does not have the technical skills or the funding for development, to get their app ideas off the ground.
With the Develop campaign on appsplit, individuals can find freelancers to work on their app in exchange for a percent of ownership of the app. Individuals can look for freelancers in any area they want. They may be looking for designers, developers, marketers, testers, or writers to work on their apps for part ownership.
The new appsplit, like the appsplit we originally introduced, is free to use. You won’t have to pay a membership fee, or pay to post a campaign so there’s no money out of your pocket upfront. We make money only when you make money.
Though we’re new, we’re confident that we are providing the right platform for people to succeed in the app industry. And since we are still a young and small, we are also very eager for your business. Our guarantee is that we’ll give you as much attention as needed to help you succeed because your success is also our success.
For developers, our campaign types provide a way for you to make money on apps you built by selling them, a way for you to raise money for development expenses, and a place you can frequent to find ideas for apps and people to partner with on creating awesome apps.
For investors, our platform makes it easier to find new apps to purchase; it also makes it easy to sell the apps you already own. You can also fund your next app through our campaigns or build on your current one by seeking funding or people who will help you with your needs.
For everyone else, the new appsplit makes it possible for you to get into the apps business. You can buy an app, find developers and other professionals who will work with you on your app idea, or raise money to fund an app based on an idea you think will be the next big thing.
We here at appsplit are genuinely fond of apps and of technology as a whole. We also have the drive to succeed and we love to see others succeed. Together, let’s change the whole app industry.
