Become An App Developer And Make Money

The two types of apps you will see in most app stores are FREE apps and PAID apps. Many apps available for download come free of charge which raises the obvious question of how do I make money if my app is free? There are two main streams of income for offering your apps free of charge. The first is advertising which relies on targeted ads such as Google AdSense or affiliate links which are inserted into the apps content. No one wants to have ads cluttering the content so it is important to place them in an area that will be noticed, but not so much so that they get in the way. Another option is to offer your app for free but withhold certain features or functions which would appeal to the user and entice them to consider purchasing the full version. If going down this route it is important not to put all your eggs into one basket so to speak. If you offer too much in the free version users will have no need to purchase. Although there is no rule to say you can not use both options at the same time. If you wish to charge outright for your app make sure you set a reasonable price that is realistic. Charge too much and you price yourself out of the market. Charge too little and you run the risk of devaluing your app.

App Developer Debate: Free vs Paid Apps

I have experimented with both paid and free apps in my business and feel that I have arrived at the best possible solution. Through some very tedious trial and error, I have been able to gauge what the benefits of each type of app are and how to create a synergy between using both to create a strong portfolio of mobile applications. The focus of my app business is on games, but this model can be applied to just about any category of apps. My strategy is to develop both a free/lite version and a paid version of each of my apps. The free/ lite versions are beneficial in the following ways:

1. Lite apps bring more attention to and drive sales of paid versions. The free version gives users a chance to sample your app and hopefully decide to upgrade to the paid version with all features enabled. ...
