Hey all. Just sharing this page of interviews I came across the other day. Carter has been pretty successful in the world of app / games. i've only started to listen to part of the first interview but thought I'd share it here as well. Could be an interesting listen [smile]

Yea hes amazing at marketing, he doesnt develop any of his apps but makes money by buying traffic at a low rate and getting the most back from a user.

And also by selling tutorials on his webpage [smile]

Yeah. It looks like he has a really good system in place. He's focused a lot on slots games as well from what i read since those games have a high ARPU. If you can get a game to about $0.3 ARPU then there are some options for cheap installs. It's something we need to do soon and I'll share with the devs here.

I like his business approach too. He's in games to make money, and he's made that clear as his primary goal. I think this is one of the reasons he's done so well. He's not trying to build some amazing new game, instead he's focussed on cash flow.

 Great link martin, can you share the links you mention about slots game's ARPU?
update..
do you relay on his own story about slots ? this one :

Although i posted his story here before i most say that after digging his site i come to conclusion that his main focus now is to sell "How to succeed in the app store" type of product which make you think about his "Success" .....
Thanks

Carter sold his Casino portfolio two years ago for $200,000 on Apptopia.
