  7. What does it take to build aprofitable business? Elements of a business plan: • Value Proposition • Market Size • Revenue Streams • Cost structure • Distribution Channels Review page 28 of the workbook for a list of terms.

  8. Value Proposition • What value do we deliver to the customer? • Which one of your customer’s problems are you helping to solve? • Value propositions look like this: for (target customer) who (statement of the need or opportunity) (product/service name) is (product category) that (statement of benefit). • For example: For people without cars who occasionally need a car to run errands Zipcar is a car rental service that allows them to easily get a nearby car to use

  9. Market Size • You want to build a business where there are enough people who would buy the product to make you $$$ • Who are all the people and organizations for which you are creating value? • These can be both paying and non-paying customers.

  10. Market Size: Examples • Zipcars’ potential market is all people in the US with drivers licenses who don’t have cars and live near a Zipcar location • Google Search’s potential market is both all people with computers and smartphones that need to find data on the web (non-paying) and advertisers that want to put adds online (paying)

  11. Profit = Revenue - Cost • Profit is the extra money that you have made, accounting for any costs incurred, at the end of the day • Lemonade stand example: • If you sell 20 cups of lemonade for $0.50 each, and each cup of lemonade cost you $0.10 (for the paper cup, lemons, and sugar) … • What is your revenue? • What is your cost? • What is your profit?

  12. Revenue Streams • To be a business, you have to make money... The question is from whom, and how? • Possible revenue streams • Paid apps: many apps cost money to download • Some of these have both a free version supported by advertising, and a paid version with no ads • Advertising: some apps are free to use but the app maker gets money from advertisers (ex. Words with Friends) • In-game purchases: some apps have bonus items within the game that can be purchased with real money (ex. Farmville)

  13. Cost Structure • What are the most important costs in your business? • One cost could be the cost of programming resources, although If programming by yourself, that cost would be your own time • If you were to turn this app into a real business, what else would you have to pay for? • Marketing, so that people know about your application • Costumer Service, in case your customers need help • Others?

  14. Distribution Channels • How are you reaching your customers? • Which ones work best? Which are the most cost-efficient?

  15. Case Study: Angry Birds • Angry Birds – a mobile phone application puzzle game

  16. Think-Pair-Share: Angry Birds • Value proposition: What value do they bring to users? • Market: Who is their market? • Revenue streams: How do they make money? • Cost structure: What does the Angry Birds company (Rovio) have to spend money on? • Distribution channels: How do they distribute their app? (Where are all the different places where you can download/play Angry Birds?) Think-Pair-Share

  17. Angry Birds: Value for users • Angry Birds frees people from boring situations and provides entertainment

  18. Angry Birds: Market Size • Users that have a suitable device and are looking for entertainment through games • Users can play Angry Birds on iPhone, Android, Windows phones, or on the internet • By making themselves available on different platforms, Angry Birds can reach a very large part of their market

  19. Angry Birds Revenue Streams • Advertising: People download the free app onto their phones • Paid application: People can download the ad-free version for $0.99 • In-app purchase: Users can pay $0.99 for the Mighty Eagle to pass certain levels • Angry Bird merchandise: At this point, they make more $ from merchandise than the game

  20. Angry Birds Cost Structure • The game took $ 122,880 to program in total • Pay a cost to platforms: • Facebook, App Store, Android, Chrome web store, Google Play, Blackberry App World • Operations: • Rent for office building • Raw materials for merchandise • Salaries for Employees • Computers and Development Software Source: http://www.wired.co.uk/magazine/archive/2011/04/features/how-rovio-made-angry-birds-a-winner?page=all

  22. Summary of a BusinessModel • Value Propositions • What value do you deliver to the customer? • Market Size • Needs to be enough people who will buy your app to make $ • Revenue Streams • If your app will be paid, how much will you charge for it? • If you will have in-app purchases, what will you sell and how much will they cost? • Cost structure • What are the most important costs in your business? • Distribution Channels • How are you getting your product to customers?
