Mobile app industry is on fire at the moment and we don’t see it slowing down any time soon. Anyone who use smartphones, also use mobile apps. And this is where another opportunity rise for us, internet marketers.
A friend of ours, a very clever marketer, had a great success promoting affiliate offers (Clickbank, Warriorplus, JVZoo, Markethealth.com, CPA) using this exact method.
On average it’s like $73.13 a Day. All on complete autopilot. Set and forget income.
Not bad for just a couple of free apps.
Imagine outsourcing this and scaling up to $300-500/day?
While we have been using this for our AdSense sites and recently started collecting huge amount of email addresses of people who are interested in many different very profitable niches.
Before you close this page thinking: “Naah, This is not for me. I don’t have any clue how to create an app!”.
Guess what? You don’t have to!
We will show you how you can do that in just 3 minutes and for completely free!
No coding. Nothing. Just click, point, click.
Jeez, we can’t stress enough how easy and quick actually it is.
Mobile traffic is growing at the unprecedented rate. It would be simply unwise to overlook it and leave it just like that.
Google Play is now like YouTube 6 years ago. Some people even call it the new Google.
Smartphone users are actively seeking for the solution app using the search box on Google Play.
The traffic is simply HUUGE!
But the best part for us marketers is that there are still less to zero competition even in the most competitive niches.
If your blog (app) provides value – people will download it, use it and click on your affiliate links. Period.
What kind of apps are we going to build?
Mainly informational type of apps.
The idea of your app is to provide a small portion of high quality content and then direct app users either to enter their email address or redirect them directly to the Clickbank/CPA affiliate offer to learn more in details about the topic.
Basically we will use an app like a bait.
In this report I will walk you through step by step on:
• How to do a quick keyword research (competitive analysis) for your app
• What kind of blog to use for your mobile app
• How to create an app for your blog in just 3 minutes for free (no coding required)
• How to upload your app on Google Play Store for free traffic.
So, if you are ready, let’s dive in.
How to do a quick keyword research
As with everything online – mobile apps is a numbers game.
Meaning, the more apps you have – the more traffic you will receive to your offers.
Basically when you are doing keyword research for your Clickbank/CPA affiliate blog or leadgen blog, you want to come up with at least 10-15 keyword ideas for your apps.
Let’s say your niche is weight loss/fitness.
Here’s what we like to do.
Go to https://play.google.com and in the search box type something like:
„how to lose“
Boom! Just like the Google search, Google Play will display suggested search queries.
What does that mean?
Basically these are the most searched keyword phrases by Google Play users. You can instantly see what kind of apps Google Play users are searching for the most in your chosen niche.
Let’s try another one…
Google Play search is also a brilliant way to come up with the app ideas if you are still not sure what products to promote.
TIP: You can type something like „how to s“ and
it will complete the search query automatically for you.
So you can go through all of the letters, such as:
how to q
how to w
how to e
how to r
and gather an insane amount of ideas on what kind of apps are in demand right now.
By the way, most of the time highly searched keywords on Google search will be also very popular on Google Play.
So, you can simply use the Google Keyword Planner Tool as well to come up with long tail keywords for your mobile apps.
How to do a quick competitive analysis
OK. Let’s continue with the weight loss niche.
I know that many people who want to get in shape search for “how to lose 20 pounds”.
Let’s type this in brackets for the exact title search in Google Play Store:
So, there are just 1 app with “how to lose 20 pounds” keyword in the title!
Let’s click how much installs it already has:
Not bad for such a narrow keyword. There are general weight loss apps with around 1,000,000 to 5,000,000 installs.
How about we check „how to lose weight in 1 week“?
Two apps and none of them are optimized for that keyword.
Type „how to lose 10 lbs“:
Kaboom! There are not even a single app for that keyword! At least at the moment when I’m writing this report.
Knowing that, we can go to http://www.google.com and type the same keyword to get some more ideas:
I’m sure these keywords are also being searched on Google Play Store.
Now we can copy them and use for our Clickbank/CPA affiliate blog apps.
What kind of blog to use for your mobile app?
In this part of the report I will overview three type of blogs that you can use for your
• Clickbank/CPA affiliate blog
• Leadgen blog
• AdSense blog
Clickbank/CPA affiliate blog
One thing you should remember is that you always want to choose a very clean, vertical type of theme for your mobile blogs. Most of the smartphone users browse their phones holding them vertically.
Here’s an example of a Clickbank/CPA affiliate blog:
Here’s another example (mobile optimized page using jQuery):
You get the idea.
And don’t worry, you don’t need to have an original content for your mobile app.
You can easily use high quality PLR articles.
Remember, Google don’t rank Mobile Apps in their search engine.
So, it doesn’t matter if you use non original, duplicated or non SEO optimized content.
These kind of nice looking mobile optimized pages can be build using
Your lead gen blog’s main priority should be to capture an email of your app user.
You can use a blog structure similar to this:
This is a very sneaky way to build a HUGE, laser targeted email list in super competitive
niches for completely free.
The first thing your app users see when they open up your app is an opt-in page.
But you pre-frame your opt-in page as a registration/login form.
So, in order to start using your mobile app, they need to register/login first.
This is nothing new and it’s completely acceptable.
Most service/tool/widget type of apps on Google Play use this strategy and it works like wonders.
You can also try using the same email collection strategy for your informational type of apps.
You will be amazed how easy it is to build your email list using this one tactic alone 😉
Let’s review another type of blog you can use for your Mobile app.
As we mentioned in the beginning of this post, we also use mobile apps to get traffic to our makeup video tutorial blog, which is monetized with AdSense ads.
Here’s the strcuture we use for our Adsense apps:
As you see from the image above, all of the content is centred and more of a vertical shape.
Ads are placed above the fold so that anyone could instantly see them when they open up the app.
Simple and clean. No fancy stuff.
It’s one of many WordPress themes that you can find over Appearance > Themes in your WordPress dashboard.

How to upload your app on Google Play Store
First, we need to create an Android Developer Account.
Go to https://play.google.com/apps/publish/
In order to open up the account and publish unlimited amount of apps, Google will ask you one-time payment of $25.
This is your ONLY expenses, but if you will take action, it will come back to you rather quickly.
After the completion of your Android Developer account you will land on this page.
The next step is to Add our new application.
Click on „+ Add new application“
Enter the name of your app and upload the APK file from your computer.
Then simply complete all the required steps to complete your app submission.

Depending on the competition and research you have done, the next day or even the same day you should start seeing app installs and clicks on your AdSense ads/Affiliate link.

Be different. Be creative. Be unique.

There are so much free traffic available on Google Play, my head is spinning when I think about it.
