Hi all. After an anger filled week with rubbish from Airpush being highlighted, lets move on to better news.
Have you read my earlier posting on the Battle of the Walls? Back then I recommended AppBrain as the best option for ad revenue from walls. Today, let me give you further updates in this.
Brainy ChoiceI released an update of the B4A wrapper library on the forums after nad requested for option to always show interstitials. I never tried implementing AppBrain's interstitial previously. And that request from nad made me try out the interstitial implementation.
Honestly, I am now moving ALL my implementation strategy to use only the interstitials. Depending on the app type and lifespan, I am either implementing the "maybe" version of the offerwall (which only shows the interstitial every 3 or 4 days), or I am implementing the "always" version of the offerwall which always shows the interstitial.
Why?Well, for one thing, I started implementing interstitials only somewhere from 5th or 6th of April, and already my revenue from AppBrain for April is almost the same as what I made for the whole of March from AppBrain. That is a great improvement I'd say! And the better thing is, the app wall is close to beating my revenue from Airpush!
The interstitials by AppBrain has some distinct advantages.
One, it actually shows the message in the user's device language. This is a very good plus point. My previous message box was fixed in English. I know some languages are not supported yet, and if AppBrain is reading this, do consider more translation :)
Secondly, the colour combination and the full screen aspect make people more curious to check out the apps. I find their interstitial pretty attractive to click "yes" and check out the wall.
Thirdly, and this has been proven over and over, their wall's offerings hasn't been bettered by any other ad companies yet. They give really good apps on the walls, and the variety is tremendous. The apps are also shown to more countries, unlike some other wall offerings, which has targetted only a few countries.
Dude, where are your stats?I am not able to show any eCPM or other stats stuff for AppBrain, as it is not shown in their developer console.
What I would say is that, honestly, I've long been not a fan of eCPMs. They are there just to "trick" us into thinking highly of an ad network. How often have you seen ad companies saying they have the highest eCPM out there? What really matters in the end for us developers is if we make money from the Ads. Airpush's $6 - $15 anyone?
Leadbolt's notification ads, AppBrain's wall, AppLovin's banner, Admob's banner. These all make serious money for you.
Get rich!This new app market is available to all of us, best to go out there and make the most out of it. Make the best money you can! Implement ads that matter to your bank account!
