Why you should create an app?

You can create an app for two reasons, the first reason is to earn from the ads in the app and the second reason is that when you want to socialize your business and grow your business, then you think of creating the app.

Why Choose App Marketing To Make Money? not the other

Firstly, not many people know about this method and secondly, it is very easy to make a figurable earning from app marketing and this is the only thing that will never make you regret for your investment, here you need to understand one thing very well, if you buy a money-making course from someone with a lot of money to learn money making ways and tried to earn, at that case you may not earn money from there because after investing in the full huge amount of such courses, you can be successful or also it’s not guaranteed, As a result, your investment goes completely in vain, but in the case of the app, it is not so, you can start your earnings by investing very little and always remember app is something that will remain with you for always with your ownership and you will be able to earn money through app promotions any time.

this is totally a new concept to most of the people in this world , Basically, no one thinks like this and no one asks you to do app marketing in this way, because only app developers and business people know its importance and understand the earning potential through apps.

What are the ways to make money from app building and app marketing?

There are many ways to make money from app marketing, below we have explained how to make money by creating apps

1. Advertising

In February 2019, PubMatic’s study revealed that media buyers were allocating 45% of their digital advertising budgets to mobile platforms. 56% of respondents believed that programmatic in-app advertising delivered better audience targeting, and 54% reported more effective customer engagement than with other forms of advertising. For mobile app developers, ads are the most common and easiest way to earn money from free apps. All they need is to display embedded commercials within their product and receive payments from a third-party ad network.

There are five types of mobile advertising:

1) Native ads

Native ads are so naturally integrated into an app experience that users hardly perceive them as ads. For example, Snapchat’s sponsored lenses and branded filters are fun. Usually, native ads appear in threads as sponsored content or videos. They may target users based on their past actions, interests, locations, and other data, and align with the user’s favorite types of content. Since native ads are the least irritating and intrusive form in terms of user experience, they make one of the most efficient revenue streams.

2) Interstitial ads

These pop-ups take up a whole screen, are displayed periodically, and can be closed by tapping the cross button or by opening the promoted page. Interstitial ads often occur at natural transition breaks in messaging, news, and content, or when users open or close the app. In gaming apps, they may appear before or after an expected content or functionality, e.g., changing game levels or between game sessions.

Static full-screen ads and ‘rich media ads’ that reach out to users through audio, video, and text are regarded as the least successful form of mobile advertising. 

3) Banners

Banners/display ads of different sizes are typically displayed at the top or bottom part of the screen. Users can keep using the app even with a banner on the screen, but they are still annoying. The usefulness of banners has diminished since consumers have become increasingly conscious of user experience (UX) and user interface (UI) design. Moreover, they have low click-through rates.

4) In-app/in-stream video ads

Video ads lasting 10-30 seconds play automatically during natural pauses in the app experience or on-demand. The latter case is called a rewarded video. It plays in exchange for some in-app perks, such as extra points, bonuses, lives, or additional features. Since it is a win-win situation both for advertisers and users, rewarded videos are considered to be the most lucrative ad type.

5) Incentivized ads 

These tools allow rewarding users for specific in-app actions, such as ad interactions, filling out a sponsored survey, or content sharing. Incentivized ads may enable users to unlock additional functionalities as well. The strategy allows creating of better app engagement and loyalty, and most people interacting with such ads pay attention to the brand behind it.

Publishers that include in-app advertising into their monetization strategy are paid every time a consumer sees or interacts with an ad. Among the ad networks that place and pay for advertisements, Google’s AdMob is usually the first to mention. Integrated with Google Analytics, it allows for understanding the targeted audience and improving ads. Amazon’s ad system rewards publishers advertising Amazon brands and products per impression. Facebook’s Audience Network allows displaying of Facebook’s advertising inside an app with accurate targeting. Apple’s Ad tool facilitates ad integrations that help products to get discovered. Appsfire tries to select ads that blend best with an app’s visual design. Unity targets ads only for gamers and facilitates the monetization of an app’s entire player base. Chartboost offers a Direct Deals Marketplace for easy and successful game monetization and user acquisition.

Apps can contain ads to generate revenue for the developers that depend on the following factors:

  1. the location of the targeted audience, since, for example, a rewarded video for American users may cost ten times as much as for users based in other countries;
  2. the product’s popularity, largely dependent on the publisher’s promotion efforts;
  3. user engagement level, since users should interact with the app frequently to generate enough impressions and ad clicks;
  4. the platform (as an iOS app development company, we know that iOS ads may be up to 30% more expensive than ads displayed in Android apps);
  5. the payment model you have selected (more about it in the next chapter);
  6. the affiliate network company’s pricing.

There are other ways which apps make money without ads.

2. Affiliate income and referral marketing

When answering the question of how do apps earn money, it is worth talking about affiliate marketing. This model is connected with mobile advertising, and AdMob and other companies above specialize in finding suitable affiliates for mobile apps. Publishers promote a product or display information about an affiliate company through ads or use ‘in-app stores’ to sell the affiliate’s services and products, most apps, and games. In return, they receive a revenue split based on a cost-per-action (CPA) model.

How much do app developers make per ad? Let’s take a look at the most popular campaigns/payment models used in affiliate marketing:

  • CPM (cost-per-impression or cost-per-mille, where ‘mille’ is Latin for ‘thousand’). The advertiser is usually charged every 1,000th time the affiliate ad is displayed. The average payments per 1,000 impressions vary for different countries,

Banners: $1.20 – $3.00 on iOS and $1.15 – $2.50 in Android apps (it’s the advantage of Android)

Interstitials: $4.00 – $6.00 for iOS and $3.00 – $4.00 for Android

Video Ads: $10.00 – $100.00 for iOS and $7.00 – $100.00 for Android

  • CPC (cost-per-click). The publisher receives the payment based on the number of clicks on an ad displayed, typically on a CPM basis.
  • CPV (cost-per-view). These campaigns are usually applied to video ads. The payment is based on the number of video views or other ad interactions, such as clicks. The more interactions, the more you are paid.
  • CPI (cost-per-install). With this model, the publisher receives payment each time their user installs an advertised product. Chartboost and Playhaven are examples of third-party networks that have the software necessary for this model. The fee ranges from $0.80 to $3.00.
  • CPS (cost-per-sale). The publisher receives a fixed commission or percentage of the sale after each completed purchase. Amazon Associates is one of CPS networks. A publisher selects a product to advertise and profits from all redirected purchases and through advertising fees.

3. In-app purchases

Making money developing apps is also possible by adding in-app purchases. Products with in-app purchases reportedly generate the highest revenue for owners, mostly game publishers. At least 50% of the leading products include in-app purchases. The model requires an integrated payment system, as well as to pay fees to the payment-holding company. The app store manages all transactions, keeping up to 30% commission from each.

Publishers may sell a variety of virtual items directly from their app:

  1. Consumable virtual products can be purchased and used only once within the app, e.g., power-ups, health points, and extra bonuses. Most games offer virtual currencies called ‘coins,’ ‘gems,’ or ‘gold.’
  2. Non-consumable products do not expire and remain in permanent usage. For example, users can buy stickers and icons, ads may be blocked, or new game levels unlocked. In an educational app, they might pay to open additional functions or tips.

Subscriptions, which also unlock premium functionality or content for a fee, may be classified as in-app purchases, but are a separate monetization method. 

4. Subscriptions

You can make money developing apps and adding subscriptions to applications. Cloud services, video/audio streaming apps, and digital news portals often employ this model and charge monthly or annual fees. The publisher offers a free version with limited content or features or a free trial period. Consumers who wish to continue enjoying the service or full access can pay a fee and subscribe for a premium account. The desired service or content is available for a limited period according to the chosen subscription plan. Annual news subscriptions or unlimited swipes in dating apps are good examples.

Apple takes 30% of the subscription revenue for the first year and 15% afterward. Google’s commission is 15%, regardless of the year.

Services relying on subscriptions need vast audiences willing to pay for excellent services or content which keeps them engaged. For example, Pandora and mobile versions of the Wall Street Journal and New York Times can boast having both. This free games app monetization model is one of the least used, although some studies showed that subscription-based products earn 50% more money per user compared to other types of in-app purchases, and earn 2-3 times more than those relying on ads or paid downloads.

5. Freemium upsell

The developer creates two versions of the mobile app, light and full. Limiting functionality is the most common freemium model used for both games and non-gaming apps. The product is available free of charge but offers an optional upgrade to access paid/premium features. Consumers use the free light version, and if the product is worth paying to block ads or unlock extra features, they pay for an upgrade through an app store.

15% of apps are reportedly using paid sister apps; the method is popular in the health, training, and educational segments. This tactic helps in gaining lots of new users. The trick is in providing just the right amount of free features in the free version to ensure a proper app experience but induce users to pay for more.

Well, if you decide how to make money out of an app, it’s time to take advantage of it.

Free Mobile App Monetization Methods for Specialized Applications

Sales of goods and merchandise

E-commerce businesses develop mobile applications specifically for selling goods. However, apps of other types may also market and sell branded merchandise like toys, t-shirts, stickers, backpacks, phone cases, etc. This method best suits top apps with large audiences. The mobile game Angry Birds was one of the first to profit through branded merchandise sales.

Merch by Amazon, a self-service program, allows publishers to sell custom branded t-shirts from within their apps. The publisher creates and uploads artwork and promotes it using the Amazon tools. Amazon produces and sells branded t-shirts, handling all payments and delivery, and the publisher receives its royalties.

Transaction fees

This monetization method is available only to those free apps that support regular digital transactions. For example, a travel mobile app enables consumers to purchase travel products from third parties. The owner charges transaction fees for all online purchases. 

Sponsorship

Usually, app developers create a product in a specific market niche, and build a substantial user base. Then, they contact a potential sponsor company whose target audience coincides with the product’s targeted audience. If they strike a deal, they white-label the product or update its design, ads, and content to match the sponsor’s brand. Sometimes, they launch an app on behalf of a sponsor organization or brand from the onset. In any case, it’s best to research potential partners before building the product.

There are two types of sponsorship deals: the publisher either splits the revenue generated by the product with the sponsor or receives a monthly sponsorship fee. The strategy also helps to promote the app and expand its user audience, since most sponsors already have good website traffic and loyal consumers.

Crowdfunding

App developers may share their ideas on crowdfunding platforms in search of support for the development and promotion of their projects. It is mostly non-gaming apps that receive such funding. It is necessary to convince the funders of the product’s value and the idea that is worth investing in. They need to offer a product that solves some of the users’ pain points at no cost.

The following platforms are popular: AppsFunder, Chuffed, Crowd Supply, Crowdfunder, Fundable, Indiegogo, Kickstarter, and Patreon.

By the way, all these methods are also suitable for making money on free iPhone apps and for android apps too.

Some Official Tips to make your app viral

 User Experience

There are millions of apps available on the Google Play Store and Apple Store. To gain a competitive edge, it is very important either your app addresses the challenges of the users that your competitor apps cannot solve or it is easy to use compared to other apps.

Well, in this era of neck-to-neck competition, creating an app with a unique concept is more challenging than designing an intuitive and interactive. Thus try to deliver the best user experience to your target audience that helps them to perform their intended actions quickly.

To improve the user experience, you should consider the feedback shared by users, identify the areas they are not happy with and improve them. This could be adding required features, fixing bugs, improving user interface design, changing the app’s look and feel, and reducing resource usage.

By polishing the app’s user experience, you can improve the app rating from one star to five stars. Of course, reviews and ratings of the app matter a lot for the users. Thus, it is a very important strategy of how to make an app go viral.

#8. Create Videos

People avoid taking the pain in reading the content about an app, so it is better to shoot a video of your app with a catchy background. Make sure it is not too lengthy and convey the important information to the users about your product and/or service. Else, users will lose interest. It should be one or two minutes long video that showcases all the features and can be shared on YouTube, Vimeo, and Facebook.

#9. Rewards

Allow users to earn rewards by sharing your app with their friends and family members. This is a powerful strategy to market your app. With the rewards, you get more exposure and they will get some extra bucks. Thus, it is a win-win game.

Considering the referral programs, you can encourage customers to use your app. For example; Uber enables every friend of yours with ride credits who sign up with your referrals. Promotions are also a good way to increase awareness of your app. You can run limited-time offers and discounts to get access to the premium features of the app.

#10. Email Campaign

Most of the entrepreneurs promote the app after it launched on the intended app stores. Would you think this strategy will help you to get more downloads? Obviously, it won’t. Infect, you will end up with zero downloads on the first day of your app launch. Moreover, till the time your app gets the awareness, it might be obsolete.

Thus, it is very essential to create awareness about your app before it goes live. Start promoting the important and unique features and benefits of your app several months in advance by considering different media coverage such as app blogs, app reviewers, app news sites, YouTube, and more. It helps create excitement about your app across your target audience.

One of the most successful viral app marketing strategies is to create a landing page and send it to the relevant audience before launching your app. You can inform visitors about what the app does for them and how it will be benefited to them. You can also use the email strategy once your app goes live to inform users to download the app and use it.

App distribution via Apple App Store gives access to over a billion customers in 175 countries and regions on iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple TV, and Apple Watch. There are no hosting fees, but there’s an annual fee of $99 for the Apple Developer Program ($299 for the enterprise version). And Apple will take a share of your app revenues.

So how much percentage does Apple take from your app revenue? Until November 2020, it was a 30% commission from the total price of all paid apps and in-app purchases from the App Store. However, since then, two rates can apply: 

  • 30% share when you make more than $1 million in annual net app revenue;
  • 15% share when you:
    • make less than $1 million in annual net app revenue;
      when you’re new to the App Store;
    • you’re after 12 months of service in the App Store with a subscription-based app.

Google Play Store fees

Google takes a 30% share of your app revenue as well, and also Google’s cut on your revenue for subscriptions decreases to 15% after a year. There’s also a one-time $25 registration fee for the developer account. Make sure to understand the financial aspects of your app model and how it impacts your Google Play Store optimization strategy.
