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.

Walz says Japan can't pick up US-China trade war slack

Sep 16, 2019

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Gov. Tim Walz said Friday that his just-concluded six-day trade trip to Japan and South Korea was productive but also showed that Japan won't be able to pick up much slack from the U.S. trade war with China. Minnesota's agricultural economy has been rattled by President Donald Trump's trade war with China and the resulting drop in exports of key commodities, including soybeans and pork. However, Walz said, they heard that opportunities for increased agricultural exports to Japan are limited. He said U.S. embassy staff told them the Japanese market doesn't have the capacity to absorb...

US stocks are mixed as health care gains, tech drops

Sep 16, 2019

NEW YORK — U.S. stocks gave a mixed performance in early trading on Friday as health care, banks and industrial companies gained ground and offset a decline in technology stocks. Still, stocks are on track for their third straight weekly gain, having been bolstered in prior sessions by an easing of tensions in the U.S.-China trade war. Bond yields rose sharply after the government reported that Americans kept spending money in August, particularly on cars. The yield on the 10-year Treasury rose to 1.83% from 1.79% late Thursday. That helped lift bank stocks, which rely on higher yields to set...

Trump mocks Democrats, vows new tax cut in trip to Baltimore

Sep 16, 2019

BALTIMORE — President Donald Trump sought to boost the spirits of Republican lawmakers Thursday, mocking Democrats and promising a new tax cut package, as he returned to the city he recently disparaged as a "rat and rodent infested mess." Trump spoke to House Republicans attending an annual retreat in a hotel on Baltimore's waterfront. Protesters gathered nearby. But inside, the president found a friendly audience of legislators whose political futures are closely tied to how well he performs in next year's election. They greeted him a chant of "four more years." Trump obliquely addressed his earlier insults against Baltimore, promising...

Cheney, Paul, duke out foreign policy split in Trump's GOP

Sep 16, 2019

WASHINGTON — Two Republican members of Congress are battling over President Donald Trump's foreign policy. Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney engaged Wednesday and Thursday in a rapid-fire exchange of tweets in which he suggested she is a warmonger and she called him a "loser." The two reflect GOP factions clashing over whether to end the war in Afghanistan, as Paul does, or support the effort, which Cheney backs. Her father, Dick Cheney, was the vice president when the war began. More broadly, Republicans are fighting to influence Trump's approach to foreign policy in North Korea, Iran...

Gay married couple sues after daughter denied US citizenship

Sep 16, 2019

COLLEGE PARK, Md. — A gay married couple in Maryland sued Thursday to challenge the State Department's refusal to recognize the U.S. citizenship of their infant daughter, who was born in Canada via a surrogate this year. The federal lawsuit says a State Department policy discriminates against same-sex married couples and unlawfully treats their children as if they were born out of wedlock. An attorney for the plaintiffs, Roee Kiviti and Adiel Kiviti, said their suit is at least the fourth such case to challenge the policy. In February, a federal judge in California ruled that a son of a...
