My app has >100k installs, how to monetise?

Hi Guys I need help!

I got more than 100.000 people using my android app and I need advice how to earn money.

After reading:http://www.businessinsider.com/how-t...-market-2011-2 I was able to make that app very fast. Unfortunately I named my app wrong in the beginning and had low quality icons so it was not performing very well at the beginning. But later I changed the name and made very good description&icon and just after 3 days my app started to generate hundreds of installs.

Now my app is being used daily by 10000 people!!! Can someone suggest how could I earn money with this app?

Tino

The two most common ways of monetizing mobile apps are to create a premium paid version with more features, and to integrate advertising into the free version.

I agree, monetize using advertising might be a good thing with this app, mostly because I don't see how you could make a premium paid version.

but with 100.000 uses you could earn a decent amount with ads.

Ya make a premium version of it as an upgrade with some very nice features. Also make some items in game that can be bought for real money. make the extras not cost to much as it will all add up.

Tino, what is the name of the app that you created? Being able to look at the app would allow us to see what type of monetization methods would work best with it.

Time to release Version 2.0, or Version 1.1 if it's not that big an upgrade. This time, make sure you have got your bases covered, like:

1. Make sure you get the email addresses of all the people who download your app, so that you can follow up with an email marketing campaign.

2. Give them a choice of paid ad-free version or free with-ad version.

Good luck and keep us updated so that we can rejoice with you in your continuing success.
