But Alan and Fotios were unable to make the trip. These ambitious youngsters have also been invited as special guests to large music festivals thanks to the game.
Creating The Most Popular App Game
Alan and Fotios’ journey began in grade 7. Fotios used to spend his summer holidays after school learning about app development. At the time, he was earning money by selling gaming codes and refurbished items on eBay. He chose app development because he wanted to create a more credible business that would earn his respect in the world of business.
Alan and Fotios both learned app development when they were 14 and 15 years old, respectively. Alan prioritized building utility apps, Shopify plugins, and subscription-based apps, whereas Fotios built gaming apps. The two scaled to 10K a month in the different segments of the app industry. When they partnered, they utilized both their skills and expertise and made it big in the app development segment.
Before they hit 18 years old, they had made over 100 apps that totaled approximately $360,000USD in revenue on a website called Flippa.com. They also built a team of employees who market and sell their apps and automate their business. They targeted the time when Donald Trump was going viral during the election year to begin selling apps. Since Donald Trump was trending, they started out with app products such as Trump Dash and Trump Jump Adventure. The two also worked with celebrity Blac Chyna on creating an addicting arcade game app that would generate sales to a specific product. They later developed more serious apps and games such as Downfall – Endless Arcade Descent, Math Academy which sold for $26,000USD and Tiny Town which is super popular amongst children and childcare centers. Fotios was a winner in the 7 News 2019 Victorian Young Achiever Awards for Australia.
Currently, the two entrepreneurs have scaled their operations to the SaaS niche. One of the 8 SaaS products that they own is InstaBoom.io which is a product that helps companies get customized hashtags to generate thousands of followers on Instagram.
