How do legal apps make money?
Legal apps – or specifically speaking, apps for lawyers, case researches and firm management, have different revenue models and monetization strategies.
- Free apps in this list earn through digital in-app purchases, advertisements or affiliate marketing (another form of advertisements where advertiser gets a percentage from sale proceeds).
- Freemium apps contain ads – and legal professionals can choose to upgrade to the premium version or access advanced features after making a purchase
- Paid apps require users to pay a recurring fee like a subscription or membership.
Realizing the potential of the market and how technology can revolutionize this particular field, Statista has suggested that the revenues in the legal tech startup market will reach 2.49 billion US dollars in 2025. This will be a major shift from 570 million US dollars generated in 2019.
What does this mean for appreneurs?
This means that there is no better time than now to build an app for lawyers and set it to become a successful revenue machine for a decent chunk in 2025. What’s more? Appreneurs don’t really have to stick to a particular revenue model and can find a mix and match.
- You can choose to develop an app that is free for legal users – and earns through sponsored ads or affiliates
- You can choose to charge a membership fee to legal professionals or law clients – and provide premium features that lawyers can’t imagine to go without!
All of these legal apps are meant to help lawyers and legal firms evaluate their business and financial goals and help them achieve their timelines without compromising client privacy.
Not only are these apps developed to boost their daily productivity and assist lawyers on the go, they are primed to scale the overall legal operations.
