Five minutes with Expert Apps


Darren Galvin and Danny Webster, founders of Expert Apps

Tell us about your business
We run a range of social networks niched to industries such as property, martial arts, health and wellbeing, arts and crafts, academic, and football.

These platforms encourage experts to share their knowledge while earning a passive residual income. The structure of the business has allowed for those hungry to invest in modern tech to receive royalties from our apps.

When did the business start?
The business was formed in May 2018.

How has your business developed since then?
We have superseded our own expectations with a six-figure turnover in the first six months and now have assets valued into seven figures. We started in a room above a taxi office, and now we’re in the tech hub off Liverpool’s Digital Way.

What’s the best thing about working for yourself?
Controlling our own time.

What’s the worst?
Being trapped working ‘in’ the business rather than ‘on’ the business.

What advice do you have for people keen to start a new business?
Seek advice from professional mentors and coaches, invest in yourself and your education, and listen to podcasts and audiobooks.

How has FSB membership helped you?
We have found the contract, forms and resources invaluable, and also value the peace of mind that comes from knowing there is someone on the other end of the phone if we need help.
