Hi,
Each item/creation is subject to its' own license and you need to make sure that the license permits you to use whatever you purchased for commercial use and/or that the intellectual property rights/ownership rights have been transferred to you, or that you've received a license to use the item/creation.
In regards to Fiver - the section you mentioned does mean that the person doing the gig is assigning the rights over to you - the only problem is that that person may not be the owner of those rights, meaning that he can't actually assign them to you. For example, if the Fiverr person did something for someone else (and already assigned it to them), and then uses those same materials for you...
Good luck

Well done for creating the app. Great question.
Regarding setting the price: I would try run a survey with some screen shots that show the game and it's purpose/experience, and ask potential users how much they would pay. I would run one survey with open end questions, such as: "which payment method would you prefer? Answers: one time payment, download payment, monthly payments, yearly payments....
and "How much would you be willing to pay for the service - in each of the various payment options".
Then, I'd run another survey with the same questions, but provide various options for them to choose from. There is a lot of psychology behind the way the questions are done, so it is important to do them correctly.
Once you've done these survey's, you'll have a better understanding of what you users are willing to pay, and how. Also, if you do the survey right, you could collect potential first clients (they would leave their email address and you can notify them when you launch).
Good luck,

Good question.
It's not only about how many users you have, it also (and sometimes even more importantly) about:
1. What the conversion rate is (visitor to user or click to paying customer, etc...).
2. What your user life cycle is.
3. How engaged the users are.
4. What your profit % is from each user.
5. What industry you're in.
and a few other metrics. Sometimes, if these metrics are good, it less matters that you "only" have X users.
Good luck

Hi
This is a good question, and the fact that you aware and following your stats is excellent.
Although this really is a trial and error method, using a comparison model is always good - meaning see what 'competitors' in similar fields and with similar amount of followers are charging (send them a message from a different account and ask). You can always use this information to also show potential advertisers that you charge reasonable rates - even slightly cheaper than your competition despite getting better rates.
The second method is to keep raising your price, until you see that the conversion rate (people willing to pay) start saying "no thanks" - then you'll know you've hit the max you can ask for. I personally think that 3:1 is too high (too many ads), but it would depend on the industry (not sure what exactly "news" means), and if you don't see a drop in interactions and reach, then maybe your followers don't mind.
Good luck

Hi Ben,
good luck.
1. I work with numerous software development companies - from all over the world - India, Ukraine, Israel... - so I'm happy to connect you with one if you need. It all depends on the project and your (or your client's) budget.
2. Three very important points:
A) Be very clear about what you're paying for/what you're getting - in regards to specifications of the project. in 9/10 cases people overlook things.
B) Make sure that you have a signed development agreement both with your customers, and the development company [I can draft this for you if you need]
C) DO NOT pay too much upfront - only pay after each stage / milestone has been completed - and always leave at least 20% for until about 60 days after the project is completed and the support period has ended.
Good luck

Great question.
You should definitely not drop the idea if you think that it is worth pursuing. Just like you need the tech-founder, he needs a business founder with a dream, and the passion to make it succeed.
I suggest that following:
1. Do market validation/ POC to see if the idea has potential (get a general idea of how here: https://clarity.fm/questions/6423/how-do-you-do-market-research).
2. If it shoes potential, start looking for a tech-co-founder. There are numerous ways (try these):
www.meetup.com
www.founderdating.com
www.cofounderslab.com
http://www.founders-nation.com
www.founder2be.com
Linkedin...

3. Do a trial period + sign a founder's agreement.
Happy to help you with any of the above once/if you need.
Good luck!

This is a tough question.
Happy to connect you with someone who provides online coaching, based on the Adler Method. the person really believes in the cause, so they do the sessions for a relatively symbolic price (around $25 per session, for 12 sessions).
Let me know if you're interested.
