Uber for X: Failure or Success?
Uber is for is literary taking the app world by its hair. Almost every entrepreneur who wants to do something big in his or her life is now choosing to start off with a simple and yet ‘proven’ method of achieving business success: buying an on demand app clone. So, before we go on to understand whether buying an Uber for X script is a commercially viable option, let us understand what does the term “Uber for X” mean and how does it work.
UBER FOR X: The Terminology
Uber for X basically means an Uber-like application that can be used to enlist any kind of service. This is a concept that essentially treats the word Uber-like the blueprint for any booing that can be made through an app and the ‘X’ stands for any kind of service.
This app works on the simple principle of an “on demand service based app” that brings the user and the service provider together on a common ground. This enables the user to pinpoint the service providers that are actually catering to the specific kind of service that they need. It is a simple app that works across multiple platforms and is easily accessible by most people.
How Does the Business Work?
The business is a pretty simple one. Think of the app as an agent. So when someone uses the app to avail any kind of service and makes a booking, the app itself gets a commission as an agent would. This app helps the app owner get a commission per booking every time the app used. Simple. Transparent. Effective.
Why Does this Business Fail?
You will find that everywhere on the internet, companies trying to sell their own versions of the Uber for X application talk about how it is the best business in the world, how it is simple and effective and can make you a millionaire in a day. I am not saying that the app isn’t simple or effective; Also I am saying not that it doesn’t work or doesn’t have the capability to make money. I am trying to say is that just like business, this too has its pain areas that need looking into.
No Attention Paid
Although the app is a smart one and requires least effort from the app owner. One can’t just assume that they will literally be required to do nothing. You might not have to do anything to run the app or administer it so to speak but it will need promotion and marketing from time to time.
In order to ensure that more and more people use the app, you have to ensure that more and more people know that there is such an app to use. Unless that happens, your app is as good as dead. Make sure that it is fully to search engine optimized so that it is easily accessible by anyone who makes a search online for the services that you provide.
Focus on the Clients More than the Service Provider
You have to understand that the backbone of your app is not the client pool but the service providers. If you do not have enough service providers registered in your app, how will you ever find enough clients? Take a taxi app for example. Passengers will be motivated to use an app to book a tax if they know it full well that the app sports a huge fleet of cars which will make finding a cab at any time at any place much easier.
On the whole, a business is what you make out of it. Any on-demand app clone or Uber for X Script can only do so much for you. The rest has to be taken care of by only you.
