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?

Do you know the importance of the first 30 days on Google Play?

When releasing a new app, it is understood that it will rank far down the food chain. After all, your app is new and unproven just yet.

What Google has done on the Play store is that they have given new app an opportunity to live, a chance to get to a more respectable place in the world of the unknown, the Google Play ranking algorithm.

Which mobile advertising network should I use?

When it comes to monetising apps on the Android platform, mobile ads is one of the better options (IAP is probably the other alternative which is doing real good now).

A little while back, someone asked me what networks I use. Now, this is a list of networks I use. Not in all my apps though. And my ad network usage changes from time to time. So the following are just my choices, you MUST try out what works for you, as mileage really differs from developer to developer, and from app to app.


Preffered mobile advertising networks
The following are my preffered networks, and those that I would be implementing in my apps going forward (performance pending of course).

AppFloodUPDATE: I've dropped AppFlood till the issue here is sorted out.

AppFlood is really an awesome network. 100% of revenue goes to developers. The best payout system (net-anything, seriously!). Innovative ad formats, and a huge selection of ads make up only some of their good points. Their transparency on ads is aweso…
