Move over Rockefeller, I’m going to be rich according to my August App Revenue Report! Ok, that was extreme, but here’s a reality: I just paid my mortgage payment, car payment and half of my phone bill last month with my app business. I made $2,245.71, which is an average of about $72 per day. I almost tripled my app revenue from July, which was $788. What was the difference? A huge strategy shift in which games I deployed to the App Store. Instead of the short, quick games that have been my bread and butter for building up a base of income, I made a conscious decision to reinvest into games that will keep the player engaged and coming back for more.

As you may recall, June was pretty dang slow, down from $900+ in May to under $700. I had quite a bit going on in my day jobbie job and was focusing on a few bigger apps.

But first, here is the July App Revenue Report, which comes in at $788, a nice $110 bump over June. What was different?

Well, June is in the books and I’m down a few hundo from $916.36 in May 2014 to $668.14 in June 2014. The good news is that there are a few reasons why It’s down. The biggest reason is that the last few months have been particularly busy in my day-to-day career of being an App PR / Marketing consultant. I’ve helped several companies launch apps and so my own development has suffered.
I’ve been wanting to do a revenue report for some time now. Why I haven’t? Well, I’m not a big sharer of sensitive information. Welp, that’s about to change. I’ve recently made a goal to retire early. I’m 34 and need to get the passive income amped up and rolling in. To-date, I’ve been passive about my passive income, but I’ve been reading, researching, listening and just all around crushing it when it comes to putting knowledge into my brain.
