iPhone App: 2010 Social Marketing Must-Have?

Even though I don’t have an iPhone, I want iPhone apps. I’ve lost track of the number of times I’ve said, “If I had an iPhone, I could _______________.”

That’s the personal side.

From the business side, I looked into making iPhone apps for clients a few months ago. We found a developer who said the cost started out at around $800, which is a small price to pay for the cool factor. What stopped us? The developer – who said, “Unless you make something really cool and useful, having an iPhone app might backfire. People won’t use it or they might make fun of it.”

That was then and today it’s WOW!

Thanks to Guy Kawasaki, now anyone can make a reasonably priced iPhone app with AppMaker. Use coupon code “GUYK” to pay $49 instead of $199 before January 19, 2010.

  • i have tried social media marketing for getting our new products to be known on the market. it seems to work well specially if the audience is targeted .*

  • I have also spent $1000+ to get an iphone app developed. Most of these “app creators” produce very limited, simplistic apps. If anyone wants to create a power-app or something that has fancy graphics, etc., you really need to hire a developer and spend a few bucks. Unfortunately, buying a $49 app creator won’t cut it in most cases. My 2 cents.
