A quick update


The Update

Last week I added notification ads to classical radio app. The returns has been pretty awesome. (Check out Leadbolt for solid notification ads)

It has been my largest money maker for most of the days, and has been consistently among the top 3 money makers for me.

I have now added sign up ads via Pontiflex into it. And that has yielded another revenue stream from the app.

Whats interesting though, is that the notification ads have not received negative feedback. The app has gained a few 4 and 5 star ratings, and a number of Google +1.

So, maybe, just maybe.... the opt-in method probably works fine.

And the download increase has been awesome too, check this out (copied from the android market):



Whats next? 

I am wondering, what if I, periodically, change the notification icons from the on-demand type it is now, to say a recurring one, maybe about once a week.

That would show more ads to all that have my app. And maybe after 24 or 48 hours, change it back to the on-demand type.

That would be a very interesting experiment indeed.

Hows 2012 been treating you so far?

Cheers!

  2. Hi,

    I have not come across an ad company that pays more on time than Leadbolt. They usually pay on the 15th of the next month.

    For example, for January earnings, I will get on the 15th of Feb. The best part is, they usually say that it might take up to 5 working days for the money to be in my account, but so far it has taken about 24h for the money to show up!

    Also, if for any reason there will be a delay, it will be announced on their site/dashboard. Example of delay: the 15th falls on a Sunday for example.

    Cheers!

    2. Hi,

      You're welcome!

      Yes, Leadbolt supports paypal for revenue less than $500. Above $500 you have to set up wire transfer (no extra charges)...

Airpush Review - Where is the Promised CPM?

Hi all! How are you doing? Pretty tensed episode here on Airpush, and my opinion to the fact that they aren't playing fair to their developers.

Are you using Airpush? If you are, how's your CPM been doing? Ever since you started?

And if you are not, and you are planning to use it, what is attracting you to it?

AppBucks Push and Icon Ads - Alternative to Airpush, Leadbolt, SendDroid and StartApp

We developers are always on the lookout for better monetisation options for our mobile apps. With the recent slow down on the mobile advertising scene after the December spending spree, people are starting to question the ad networks.

The thing is, there IS a slow down across all networks. It is weird in that in 2012, my revenues kept growing in January and February. Well, it looks like advertisers are also getting savvier and better using their funds on ads.

Let me introduce you to AppBucks (referral link).
