Free Apps! How do you make money? That’s the most common question people have when companies and businesses release free apps to download. Clash of Clans and Spotify Music are just some of the most popular top grossing free apps in iOS and Android and they are all free. So how do these companies recoup their expenses after developing an app in 4-6 months? There are two ways to earn from free apps and when it comes to mobile app development Sydney these are in-app purchases and advertising.
But be careful with using these two, too much advertising might end up losing users and it’s the same way with in-app purchases. There are many marketing and monetising strategies involved.
Now, let’s focus on these two ways of monetising free apps.
First of all let’s talk about the numbers; the trivia is that there are about 1.3 million apps for android and around 1.2 million apps of iOS which both of them are downloadable.
