So, you want to create an iPhone app but you’re not a programmer or graphic designer.
What do you do?
In a minute, I’ll tell you what two friends did to build their own highly-profitable app business. Here’s a little excerpt of where these guys have been featured:
But first, let’s talk about how you can build your own apps.
Should You Code Your Own Apps?
You could learn how to program the apps yourself. The problem with this approach is that it could take years before your skilled enough to build high-quality apps, and by then, the market will probably pass you by.
Of course, you’d have a great skill, but you probably won’t have an app empire you can call your own.
Here’s an interesting fact you may not be aware of – a lot of app programmers who decide to build app businesses end up either finding outsourcers or hiring an in-house team.
Because they quickly realize that they need to focus on running their app business while their programmers develop more than one app at a time (or maintain the apps they already have in the App Store).
Is There a Better Way to Build Your Apps?
Let me share a little story with you about Quoc Bul and Michael Moon, the two guys behind Free the Apps!.
These guys were working corporate jobs that were paying them decent money, but they weren’t happy with the way their lives were going. They wanted to do more than just make somebody else rich while they watched the years pass them by.
They made a decision to do something about it.
That’s really the beginning, isn’t it. You have to make a decision, otherwise you’re just stuck in neutral hoping things will change.
Quoc and Mike decided that they were going to start building iPhone apps, but there was just one minor problem.
They didn’t know how to program apps and they weren’t graphic designers.
Small problem, right?
Like any good entrepreneurs, they decided that they wouldn’t let minor details and problems slow them down or deter them from their dreams of escaping from corporate America.
So, they outsourced their apps.
They found iOS programmers and graphic designers that were already making apps and they hired them to build their apps for them.
They had a good idea, so they found a way.
Here’s what happened as a result…
They built an app business that does over $800,000 a year.
Now, Mike and Quoc have 22 apps that have been downloaded over 30 million times.
Just think of the opportunity they would have missed if they let themselves be stopped when they realized they didn’t have 10,000 hours to master Objective C and Adobe CS5 so they could make their own apps.
They’d still be stuck in their corporate jobs instead of loving life like they are now.
So, why am I telling you this story?
Because even though they are successful now, Mike and Quoc know that figuring out how to outsource and how to protect their ideas was still a time consuming process filled with mistakes and mis-steps along the way.
And like most successful entrepreneurs, they now feel obligated to give something back.
They’ve created a downloadable book called, “How to Make iPhone Apps with No Programming Experience“ that will teach you exactly what they did (and more importantly, what not to do), so you can start creating your own iPhone apps and Android apps.
If you didn’t pick up App Empire, you may want to get this while it’s still available.
They’re even including some of the source code they had developed for their own apps to give you a jump start in your own app business.

We’ll that’s it for today – I hope you’re getting a clearer picture now of how you can create iPhone apps with zero programming skills.
