Can you be successful with a social media app next to Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and TikTok? Absolutely, it’s all just a matter of strategy!
Building social media apps means you’re joining a high risk, ultra high reward industry: Many social media app founders are among the wealthiest people in the world. But every once in a while, we see a new app disrupt this space. And that’s for good reason: 3.6 billion users use social media apps, and most of them are happy to use more than one…
As the name suggests, a good social media app builds a strong social audience. Yes, the larger players will have more users than you (at first). But if you give users the opportunity to better connect with likeminded people, you may have a winner. Again and again we see new players like Snapchat, Houseparty, and TikTok join this market, and stay forever.
At first most users will use your app for one reason. It could be better communities, a safe environment, a better chat experience, great image or video sharing, using maps, or anything of this nature. No matter what it is, you need to do one thing really well rather than 10 things as good as others.
What do Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Snapchat, and TikTok have in common? They started with a very specific audience. Ultimately, you’d rather find a niche and start winning users in one area first before you take over everyone. Because the more users you can connect that share the same beliefs, the stronger their bond, and the more addicted they will be to your platform.
Zuckerberg’s advice to Instagram was simple: If you try to make money before you have 100 million users, you’re doing it wrong. At Appetiser, we found that it’s possible to get return on investment earlier than that, but there is some truth to what he said: In most social apps, you will try to win as many users as possible without compromising your community. As long as you’re up for it, we can help you get there.
