Let’s say you have an idea about a mobile app which hasn’t been created yet, a kind of social network where people can help each other in a specific matter and everyone can be brought to use it maybe few times at least in a while, but the app should be free because is kind of human service.
How can someone monetize such app? Ads won’t bring a lot of income and are not welcomed by users, the only way I see is building a large user base and then you can sell the app to some big firm. Am I right or wrong in my thinking? Since this is the first time I’m building a project like this.
