Since the beginning of the podcast and my app entrepreneur journey there’s one single investment that I’ve made that has changed everything for me.

This investment has doubled my business year over year.

This investment allows me to NOT do any outbound marketing.

This investment has brought me such great amazing new friends.

Have an idea what this investment is?

Here’s a hint (enable images)…

This picture was taken during WWDC 2014 (3 years ago)!

The investment is…

CONNECTIONS!

You see three years ago I had dinner with 4 other App Masters Elite mastermind members along with past guests and clients.

One of the members, Gonzalo Juarez, is the co-founder of the largest publisher of travel apps. We had a few conversations online, but we first met in person during that dinner – he was living in Argentina at the time.

Immediately we hit it off, so we’ve always stayed in contact.

And during WWDC 2015, he came back to SF and I introduced him to someone I just met as well, Alex Dantas at another dinner that I hosted.

Alex introduced Gonzalo to Hackers / Founders, a co-op startup accelerator in San Jose, CA.

After a few months, Gonzalo decided to join Hackers/Founders and move from Argentina to California.

And now fast forward to 2017, Gonzalo and I have become really good friends going to our kids’ birthday parties and helping each other with our businesses.

It is for these connections that I decided to launch the App Masters Elite mastermind back in 2014…

To build life-long relationships that go beyond the app business and frankly business in general.

I’m a firm believer in communities especially those that are highly curated.

So…

Would you like to be a part of a community with 6 and 7-figure app entrepreneurs who are there to fully support one another?

Do you want to know how iOS 11 is already making an impact on ASO?

Founder at AppMasters
I started building apps in 2011 and my first app hit #8 under educational games. I started making a few hundred dollars a month, but had no idea what I was doing. Then in 2013 I decided to start a podcast so I could pick the brains of app creators that I admired including the co-founder of Shazam, Tapbots, Crossy Road, etc and that changed everything.

Now I run an app marketing agency where we’ve helped 8 clients get featured by Apple, 5X downloads with ASO, and get coverage on Techcrunch, Mashable, Venture Beat and other major publications. I also write about apps on The Next Web, Entrepreneur.com, and on my blog AppMasters.co.
