How Do You Evaluate A Mobile Game’s Profit Potential?

Published

Have you thought about developing and launching a mobile game in the future? This is a great idea. After all, the mobile game industry has exploded during the past few years. As long as you create a highly engaging game, you can pretty much guarantee that you’ll be able to make money. Nevertheless, you need to understand that some games are more profitable than others. You need to learn how to evaluate a game’s profit potential before throwing too much money its way.

Within this guide, you will learn about the basics of evaluating a mobile game’s profit potential.

Understand The Overhead

First and foremost, you should understand that it is going to take money to make money. This is true 99.9% of the time. It would be rare to find an opportunity to generate money without spending. This is the case when it comes to the mobile game industry. After all, you’ll need to spend money on the game’s development. You’ll need help coding the game, designing the game, and creating audio for it. Remember that the overhead is going to deduct from the game’s final profit.

Whether you’re creating games for a mobile casino or you’re developing an online RPG, you need to understand the overhead. Then, you’ll need to make sure that your game can generate enough money to cover it and still earn a profit.

The Difficulty

Ultimately, some games are more intricate than others. If you’re going to be launching a new Tic-Tac-Toe game, there is a good chance that you’ll be able to develop it pretty quickly. Will it be successful? Probably not, but you’re not going to spend a lot on its development either. Why? Well, the game isn’t that complex so you can develop it with basic functionality. In return, you’ll save yourself time and money.

With a more complex game, the development process will take much longer and you’ll end up spending more. Knowing the difficulty of the development process in advance can make a big difference.

Know The Genres

If you want to calculate the worth of your next mobile game, you need to truly understand the popularity of the genre. Some genres like role-playing and first-person-shooters are just more popular than others. Of course, this also means that the market will be more competitive. It will be much harder to jump right into the role-playing market and be successful because there is a slew of popular role-playing games that have already been established for years. Not only this but with genres like role-playing and first-person-shooters, you can also peddle collectibles.

Know Your Market Reach

Not only do you need to choose the right genre, but you also need to know the market that you are going to be able to reach with your game. There is simply no better way to do this than by creating a Facebook ad campaign. The goal is to be as specific as possible about the audience that your game will appeal to. That being said, you can’t just simply say that your game will appeal to all ages between eight and eighty. This is just too broad to understand the true earning potential of your game. You need to narrow down the metrics a bit more and a Facebook ad campaign can help you do that.

Haraka Haraka app to link customers with service providers

Published

Loading...

A new App dubbed “Haraka Haraka” has today been unveiled in Kenya to help customers find the right service providers in their current location within a specified range of choice.

The platform was invented by three former Meru University of Science and technology students and with the app, they seek to make it easier for people to find services such as a plumber, retailers, shops and house agents that have been difficult to get physically.

The team, Mr Kelvin Muinde, Mr Pius Momanyi Nyachio and Mrs Naum Mutie said there are currently about 3,500 users who are potential clients and service providers on the platform who include carpenters, hairdressers, plumbers and mechanics, and more.

“We are taking away the burden of searching for experienced and reliable professional businesses in a hassle-free model to deliver critical services to individuals who are in need of their specific location,” said Pius Momanyi Nyachio who is the Marketing Manager.

Mr Kelvin Muinde, who is the head of the project said the idea to start Haraka Haraka was initiated out of his observance of people having difficulty in finding a reliable service in an area that they are not well conversant with.

“The biggest challenge customers face is finding the right service providers at any area, mostly if you are not familiar, most people end up getting poor services that cost them time and resources,” he said.

To find any service or to register as a service provider, individuals are requested to first download the Haraka Haraka App on Google and register where later one can choose a range between 100m to 30km to find the service they are in need of.

The app also comes with an option of reviewing and rating a service provider which acts as an advantage to next service seekers enabling easy referrals to new clients.

‘’The registration to the app is free for both users and professionals,’’ said Mr Kelvin Muinde. The company’s aim is to hit 10,000 users by the end of this year. Ideally, they plan to have a maximum of 30,000 professionals on the platform.
