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.

Iran: Lifting US sanctions will help salvage nuclear deal

Sep 22, 2019

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said Iran's supreme leader will not meet President Donald Trump unless Washington halts its "economic terrorism" that has hurt ordinary Iranians. Zarif said the removal of U.S. sanctions — which he described as a form of extortion, arm twisting and intimidation — could also help salvage the 2015 Iranian nuclear deal, which the U.S. unilaterally withdrew from last year. He said Tehran has the right to reduce its compliance under the nuclear pact after the U.S. left, but it can return to full implementation if the U.S. fulfils its commitment...

Indonesia to move capital from sinking Jakarta to Borneo

Sep 22, 2019

JAKARTA, Indonesia — Indonesia's president says the country's capital will move from overcrowded, sinking and polluted Jakarta to a site in sparsely populated East Kalimantan province on Borneo island, known for rainforests and orangutans. President Joko Widodo said Monday intense studies over the past three years had resulted in the choice of the location on the eastern side of Borneo island. The new capital city, which has not yet been named, will be in the middle of the vast archipelago nation and already has relatively complete infrastructure because it is near the cities of Balikpapan and Samarinda, Widodo said. He...

Judge postpones 2nd corruption trial of Malaysia's former PM

Sep 22, 2019

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — The second trial of Malaysian's ex-Prime Minister Najib Razak linked to the multibillion-dollar looting of the 1MDB state investment fund was delayed Monday by a week to allow his first trial to end.

Najib, 65, denies wrongdoing and accuses the new government under Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad of seeking political vengeance. Chief prosecutor Gopal Sri Ram said the last witness in Najib's first trial is midway through testifying and...

Indonesia's leader says sinking Jakarta needs giant sea wall

Sep 22, 2019

JAKARTA, Indonesia — Indonesia's president said in an interview that he wants to see the speedy construction of a giant sea wall around Jakarta to prevent the low-lying capital from sinking under the sea, lending renewed backing and a sense of urgency to a slow-moving and politically contested mega project. President Joko Widodo and his government are up against a tight timetable, including a forecast by experts that at the current rate, one-third of Jakarta could be submerged by 2050. The existential crisis facing the city is the culmination of decades of unfettered development, almost nonexistent urban planning and misrule...

Indonesia's Widodo tells AP he'll push economy, labor reform

Sep 22, 2019

JAKARTA, Indonesia — Indonesian President Joko Widodo said in an interview Friday that he will push ahead with sweeping and potentially unpopular economic reforms, including a more business-friendly labor law, in his final term because he is no longer constrained by politics. Widodo also told The Associated Press that it is "entirely possible" that he could ban the hard-line Islamic Defenders Front during his second five-year term. The group wants Shariah law to apply to Indonesia's 230 million Muslims. It was a key player in organizing massive street protests in 2016 and 2017 against the governor of Jakarta, a Widodo...
