    Default How to Make Money from Facebook Apps

    The app industry has really exploded over the past couple of years, and is making big money. In the past if you wanted to get in on the lucractive app business you would have needed to be well versed in the relevant programming language to be able to write the code for your application, but now anyone can get in on it as an entrepreneur and make good money from it without needing to have any kind of technical knowledge or skills whatsoever.

    There are two major platforms which really dominate this market - Facebook and the iPhone, both of which have a truly enourmous market for new applications. Since I have already written a hub about how to make iphone apps and make money from them, I thought it was about time I wrote another hubpage focussing on facebook instead.

    There are two routes which anyone can take to make money from facebook apps which I know of, so take a look at both and then decide which route suits you best - have a go at both!

    Make Your Own Facebook Apps

    There are many tools available in the market which anyone can use to easily create gift apps for facebook. If you looking for custom facebook application you need to search for Facebook developer or a company offering facebook application development services. There ia real focus on helping you to make money from your creations and each one has 4 potential income streams an they also provide plenty of info on how to maximize the money you make to how to use them to drive traffic to your websites (or hubpages!) if you prefer. Its a great little tool and the only drawback is the limited range of things that you can create with it Plenty of revenue potential though.

    I don't think it's quite as easy as you make it sound. I tried getting into facebook app dev, and the facebook API is painful. Plus, there's no use making crappy facebook apps (or iPhone apps), in my opinion. There are too many of them. Facebook and the App Store are full of really low quality stuff that people didn't put real time and energy into, and the market is so saturated that it's hard for anyone that actually does make good software to make much money off of it now.
