Re: Making money online: first websites, then apps, now...

This was eye-popping:

Quote:
Since then over 100 billion apps have been downloaded, generating $40 billion in revenues for developers and billions more in subscriptions and other fees.
Sooooo, the average app makes $0.40. No wonder in-app ad markets are so sluggish.

Need to listen to this again:

Re: Making money online: first websites, then apps, now...

70% went to developers and 30% to Apple and Google

And the average app is actually never gets more than 1000 downloads.

Only 0.5% of mobile gamers pay in-app upgrades.

relative to ads....1% of apps make revenue from ad networks.

the app economy is 1/10000 hit business or worse.

The only paid app I paid for is WhatsApp, but even that, it's free now.

Nowadays I seldom even look at apps on my phone. People get tired after sometime and it's really bad on the eyes.

The hype will blow over soon.

Yes... Line is a messaging app out of Japan that's one of the biggest in the world. They sell really silly "stickers" (emojis/emoticons) like teddy bears and rainbows you can put in the messages and apparently people buy them.

Another big one in Japan is called Radiko, which seems to be run by the radio cartel in Japan... All the radio stations are on it, but you can only use it inside Japan.

Not sure about China.

Re: Making money online: first websites, then apps, now...

Chatbots were supposed to be revolutionary many times before and it never happened.. could it be different now.. its always possible.. will it overtake apps, no. It may be a good compliment for existing apps and websites to advertise their services, another channel through which they can reach consumers, but on its own does not appear all that revolutionary.

Re: Making money online: first websites, then apps, now...

sometimes technologies take decades to really be decisive.

Steam engines in England.

Artificial intelligence and machine learning computer science is leveraging really cheap computing cost at Amazon cloud services and at IBM.

Chat bots are likely to improve dramatically in different languages around the world at different increments.

WeChat in China is likely to be leaps ahead of WhatsApp at Facebook for a while.

There the idea of a Chat bot or a Chat App or a Chat API is basically the same.

Getting a flight on United Airlines on the app is easy and simple.
Getting a flight on the UA website takes minutes and an aspirin...

If you want to be told what to think, then yes, that is the way to go.

I just don't understand why idn investors are so hard on changes, since they were the ones understanding and embracing changes when idn appeared 20 years ago. Getting old?

Re: Making money online: first websites, then apps, now...

F8 Confirmed

Messenger Chatbot APIs – Facebook will launch tools allowing developers to build automated response agents for Messenger, multiple sources confirm. This follows our scoop from February that Facebook had given some developers a Chat SDK for building bots. These bots could replace 1-800 numbers, providing customer service over chat, and use artificial intelligence to deliver ecommerce, news, content, and other experiences.

1800-flower bot on Facebook

"I find it pretty ironic, that now to order from 1800-flowers, you's never have to call 1800 flowers again."

minute 13 here: https://developers.facebook.com/videos/f8-2016/keynote/

minute 55 is also a must watch

Since many people here couldn't even understand the appeal of facebook as it took off, its not really surprising they can't understand why people buy LINE stickers. I personally know dozens of people that buy LINE stickers, and they are all rational human beings.

People on this forum were up to date in 2005-2006, treading water up to 2010, and now just drowning in their backward thinking.

Move on guys. Time waits for no man.

Fashion come and go and come back again. At one time, there's a lot of hype with iPads, now it's tapering off. Some hypes however as more persistent, such as the Hello Kitty in Asia. Frown upon only 20 years ago, Tattoos are now seen as cool.

With fashion, anything is possible. In Japan, sex dolls or rather companions are the in-thing, so I won't be surprised if someone comes up with paid cybersex with chat bots.

Coming back to idn, are now backward? I don't know, all I know if that my park rev covers more than twice my domain renewals.

There's money in the old fashion things. Cloud and apps are very fashionable, but real money is made in infrastructure. But that is not to say that we don't go for changes. Sometimes reinventing old stuff to look like the new trend can be profitable.

One area that I think needs reinventing is the PPC business. There needs to be an equivalent of uber where people can buy ads directly from sites and domain owners.
