Free Mode VS Charging Mode, Which Is More Profitable?

With the rise of the mobile internet, more and more developers are turning their attention to apple or google's app store. But for these app developers, one of the questions they have to consider is how to make their own apps to make money, whether to take a free strategy and then make money through other channels or directly charge, this is the decision that developers need to make. Usually, when we ask this question, many developers will put the profit strategy to the end or directly respond to the current failure to consider the profit model.

Who pays more: users or advertisers

when it comes to users, whether it's taking the app itself, subscription fees, or in-app billing mode, most android and ios users are resisting charges. So many developers of smartphone and tablet apps prefer to use the ad model to make money. On the other hand, advertisers are more willing to pay developers, not users. Just like developers, advertisers also need to bring their products to market quickly.

The best solution: adopt multiple profit strategies

often, when we come across a vast majority of users who are price-sensitive, tend to be free, and hardly buy, there are still a small number of users who choose a payment model for their favorite apps to avoid advertising harassment.

So during the development process, developers can choose to develop different versions of the app for different types of users: free and paid. This model is very popular in the publishing industry, like the british guardian has released an advertising free version of android and a non-advertising iphone paid version for different users. Similarly, echofon has launched free and paid versions on all platforms.

In short, when you build a new app, you should investigate some of the ad-based models. There are already a lot of ad models available, so you can compare them to see if they offer cpm or cpc and how much work to do when integrating them into your app.

Kosovo election winner in no rush to restart Serbia talks

Oct 15, 2019

PRISTINA, Kosovo — A left-wing party leader poised to become Kosovo's next prime minister said Tuesday he isn't in any rush to restart formal talks intended to normalize relations with Serbia and won't lift the previous government's 100% tariff on Serb imports. In a general election held Sunday, Albin Kurti's Movement for Self-the Determination, or Vetevendosje, defeated center-right political groupings formed by former Kosovo Liberation Army fighters who had governed since 2007. Kosovo, a former Serbian province, declared independence in 2008, a decade after an insurrection by KLA fighters and Serbian strongman Slobodan Milosevic's bloody crackdown launched a 1998-99 war....

AP sources: Trump allies sought changes at Ukraine utility

Oct 15, 2019

KYIV, Ukraine — As Rudy Giuliani was pushing Ukrainian officials last spring to investigate one of Donald Trump's main political rivals, a group of individuals with ties to the president and his personal lawyer were also active in the former Soviet republic. Their aims were profit, not politics. This circle of businessmen and Republican donors touted connections to Giuliani and Trump while trying to install new management at the top of Ukraine's massive state gas company. Their plan was to then steer lucrative contracts to companies controlled by Trump allies, according to two people with knowledge of their plans. Their...

EU top court rules in favor of Google on search engine issue

Oct 15, 2019

BRUSSELS — Google won a major case in the European Union on Tuesday, when the bloc's top court ruled that the U.S. internet giant doesn't have to extend the EU's "right to be forgotten" rules to its search engines globally. The European Court of Justice said there "is no obligation under EU law for a search engine operator" to extend beyond the EU member states the court's 2014 ruling that people have the right to control what appears when their name is searched online. It said, however, that a search engine operator must put measures in place to discourage internet...

Gucci takes a kinky turn; Dolce&Gabbana give a jungle roar

Oct 15, 2019

MILAN — Fashion, according to Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele, now is above all "a great platform. It has great power." Michele has used that platform during his 4½ years at Gucci's helm to give gender fluidity a voice. The fashion house also put sustainability on stage, saying it would spend millions on a program to become carbon neutral. Fashion is recognized as one of the world's top pollution-producing industries, and luxury producers are taking additional steps to address the environmental impact of making clothes. The Italian Fashion Chamber, along with Livia Firth's EcoAge consultancy, was presenting its third Green...
