Ok, I’ve hinted about it in my past few income reports and finally it’s official – Mobile App Tycoon is now Online Income Tycoon! Rebranding the blog has taken a lot of time and to be honest has been quite a pain in the ass. However, I’m confident that it will be worth it in the long run as I have BIG things planned for OIT and I’m excited to get started!
With that being said, I do want to go over some more details to fill you in on what’s happening with OIT and what to expect.
Rebranding MAT to OIT was more of a personal decision than anything. While I really enjoyed talking about mobile apps on MAT, I felt that I was limiting myself by ONLY focusing on apps. In addition to apps I also have other online businesses, some of which I’m making significantly more than I am with mobile apps. So by not talking about these other businesses simply because my blog was Mobile App Tycoon, I almost felt like I was doing you guys a disservice as well.
What Will OIT Focus On?
Just to make it 100% clear – I’m not planning on giving up on app development by any stretch of the imagination. As a matter of fact, I’m planning on increasing my efforts in this area! However, with OIT, I’m also planning on talking about all the other businesses I’m involved in. Another income stream I’m planning on focusing on here is my Kindle publishing business. I’m currently making anywhere from $1,000 – $8,000 per month from Kindle and I’m really excited to start sharing this information with you in addition to apps! Plus, I’ll also talk about some side projects with SaaS (software as a service), niche authority sites, blogging, and more!
Well, in the short term you can expect a few (hopefully minor) technical glitches. As I mentioned before, rebranding and getting the new site up was a hassle, and I’m by no means done quite yet. This is still a work in progress and there are still things that take more time to “transfer” over from MAT to OIT such as the podcast. The podcast will also be rebranded under OIT and hopefully have some new episodes coming in the near future! Another thing that may get affected is my autoresponder. I’m swapping out the old emails and putting in fresh, new emails just for you! However, if you happen to get a “welcome” email randomly, don’t be alarmed. Technology doesn’t play nice sometimes 😉
I do ask for your help in one thing – if you see anything that looks like it’s not “right” or could be a technical glitch or me simply forgetting to change wording from MAT to OIT, shoot me a quick message through my contact page and let me know!
Let’s Get Going!
Now that the rebranding process is wrapping up, I’m pumped and ready to start producing some AWESOME content and helping us move forward and reach our online income goals! Here’s what I need you to do:
- “Like” my new Facebook page for OIT. Unfortunately, Facebook doesn’t let you change your Facebook page name, so I made a new one for OIT and I will be deleting the one for MAT shortly. So if you haven’t “liked” the new page already make sure to do so!
- Follow me on Twitter! My Twitter account hasn’t changed, however I changed my name from “Mobile App Tycoon” to “Thomas Strock” and my handle from @MobileAppTycoon to @ThomasStrock. So if you already followed me from before, you’re good to go. If not – what are you waiting for?
- Sign up for my email list! Again, if you signed up to the MAT email list you are automatically on the new OIT mailing list. However, if you haven’t joined the party yet, you can sign up in the opt-in form in the sidebar or directly below this post! You’ll get my FREE eBook guide to coming up with KILLER app ideas as well as get EXCLUSIVE content sent directly to your inbox.
Ok, that’s all my self-promotion for now
Keep an eye out for my May income report (NEW with ALL my income sources included!) which will be published in the next few days. In the mean time, let me know what you think of the rebranding and the new site in the comments section below!
