Mobile app monetization with ads: How to make more money with mobile app ad mediation

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

To start making much more money from your ads, sign up here.

Click on the sign-up button, go through the sign-up process, install the 4-lines of code needed, and update your app in the app store. After that you will monetize the ads you publish on your app much better than before.

Most mobile app (Android and iPhone or iPad on iOS) entrepreneurs struggle when it comes to making good money with ads. Most app entrepreneurs don’t understand why the monetization is so poor. Let me explain that first.

You see, no matter which mobile app ad network you use, they typically struggle with having low fill rates. Fill rate is a term that means how many of the possible ad impressions on the app actually have a relevant ad that gets placed there. And the industry secret is that no single mobile app ad network has a fill rate that is near 100%. In fact, most of the mobile ad networks struggle to have fill rates that are even close to 50%.

This is where a company like AdToApp comes in. They have what is called smart ad mediation. AdToApp is a smart mobile app ad mediation company that aggregates over 20 of the top mobile app ad networks, and in each screen impression of your app, queries those mobile app ad networks in order to bring you the highest bidding ad. This can result in your app generating double, triple or even better earnings and revenue from the same users compared to the revenue your app would generate from using just one of the available mobile app ad networks.

Usually, AdToApp charges a 10% fee for using their service, but if you use the link provided at the top of the video description, you will only be charged 5%.

Plus, if you end up installing and using AdToApp, I will partner with you, and help you promote your app, and get you more downloads. Of course, after I help you get more downloads, you will make even more money from those downloads, and your earnings will compound to be hundreds if not thousands of percent more than what your Android or iPhone app generates in revenue today. And the great thing about increasing your app earnings and income this way is that you can do this as early as today if you are on Android, and as early as the Apple review team approves your iPhone or iPad app update for the Apple App store.

So are you ready to start making double or triple more money from the ads you currently serve on your apps? Get started today by registering with AdToApp, installing their SDK, updating your app in the app store.

Here again is the promotion link that you should use to register.

15 fundraising ideas and strategies: raise money for your business

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

In this tutorial I explain 15 fundraising strategies and ideas that you can use to raise money for your business.

Here is the link to the video with 50 ways to make money online: http://youtu.be/XcIleEkezBY

As mentioned in the video, follow this link to see if you qualify for a business loan with Lendio.

Here is the link to my full course on how to start a business which was mentioned in the video.

It is a pretty comprehensive list, and covers topics like loans, grants, investors, donations, crowdfunding, bootstrapping, and some creative strategies that you can use to raise money for your business.

Another cool thing about this video is that it has online and offline fundraiser strategies, and you can use the ideas in this tutorial for any kind of a project, business, nonprofit, or school.

In this tutorial, you get 15 ways to raise money for your business. I have direct experience with many of those fundraising strategies. To raise funds for my businesses in the past, I have put on successful events, made money online with digital products to them put that money towards my business, did freelancing online, and worked full-time and part-time jobs. For me, all those ways to fund my business ideas worked great, and I would recommend them.

What didn’t work for me was grants or investors. Those fundraising strategies just wasted my time. And if I tried to do crowdfunding, I have a feeling that this would waste my time as well because crowdfunding is challenging these days, and it isn’t as simple as it seems to get someone to give you a donation.

Additionally, here is a tutorial for how to raise money by making money online with Fiverr:

Here is a way to raise money for your business by earning it on Udemy:

And here are a few of my older but helpful fundraising videos.

Here is a tutorial on how to make money with Etsy and put those funds towards your company or project:

And here is a full affiliate marketing tutorial, which is a strategy you can use to raise money by earning it online, and putting it towards your business:

All in all, I don’t want to make it seem like fundraising is easy, or even that most people are successful. In fact, it is difficult, and most people who sit back and wait for money to come to them never get any money. People who are successful are ones who work hard, are creative and resourceful, keep trying and don’t give up. That is the truth.

In parting, I’d like to offer a few of my products that might help you. Check out my list of books on Amazon:

Business strategy: strategies to beat competition, find growth, business modeling. strategic planing

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

In this video tutorial I go over a number of business strategies to find growth for your company, defend it from competition as much as possible, create a good business model, and to do smart strategic planning to help your company grow and prosper long term.

The first strategic planning concepts I discuss is something that many entrepreneurs as me about, and that is about how to protect your business idea from people who will simply copy and steal it. Experienced entrepreneurs tend to be less concerned with protecting their ideas and more concerned with finding growth for their companies. Nevertheless, having defensive strategies is still important. There are some common defensive strategies like signing an NDA (non disclosure agreement), or filing patents or trademarks to protect various parts of your company’s intellectual property. Of course, another important thing to consider if you want to protect your intellectual property is to simply surround yourself with people whom you can trust. That typically goes a long way.

Other strategies in the video have to do with marketing and finding business growth opportunities. I also discuss strategic planning. If you create a good plan during the initial phases of your company, you increase the chances of success in a large way. A part of the strategic planning you have to do can be SWOT analysis where you consider the opportunities, threats, strengths and weaknesses of your plan. You must make sure that all the major elements of your business play well together. Let me explain what I mean by that. The major elements of your business are product or service creation, marketing, and the ultimate finances of your company. Your strategic planning and overall strategy must account for these major elements to align. That means that you should be able to create a high quality product or service, find effective promotion and marketing channels, and do all that in a way that is profitable. If you can do that and scale it, you have yourself a nice business.

How to write a business plan & open an ice cream parlor or frozen yogurt or gelato shop

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

In this video tutorial I explain how to write a business plan for a frozen yogurt shop, or an ice cream parlor, and then how to eventually start and open your ice cream shop or a frozen yogurt parlor.

Here is my Amazon author page with the 6 books I wrote and check out my full fundraising course online. Here are all business and marketing courses.

This is a very seasonal business, and one that depends highly on the kind of people (demographics) live in your area. You will get quite a bit of customers as a result of people walking by your store if there is a lot of foot traffic in the specific area where you open your ice cream shop. But that foot traffic may dry up during late Fall season until Spring depending on the climate of wherever you are trying to open your business.

When you start this kind of a business, it can be ideal and cost effective to take over an existing gelato shop or a frozen yogurt place. If you do that, it will save you money on a big part of the remodeling, especially the kitchen and various appliances.

You should also think about whether you want to have your own concept for the business, or open a branch of an existing franchise. A franchise can help you by providing a recognizable brand, and quite a bit of additional marketing. But your customers may find the feel of it cold and commoditized. If you open an ice cream shop of your own design and concept, its uniqueness will make people feel like you put more of your own heart into the ice cream and other snacks. It will also have more of a chance to become a neighborhood go-to place if if people feel like you are putting more of your own personal touch and care into it.

Keep in mind though, that an ice cream of gelato place isn’t an easy business to start. The costs are high, and the average amount spent per customer isn’t too high. So it is often difficult to become rich from this kind of a business.

How musicians can raise money, sell music and make money from their music

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

In this video tutorial I explain how musicians can raise money for their music.

Here is my Amazon author page with the 6 books I wrote and check out my full fundraising course online.

If it is difficult to raise money that doesn’t come with any strings attached, I talk about how musicians can fund their music ventures by selling music online and do live shows locally to make money from their music online and offline.

Many musicians come to me and ask how to raise money. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to raise money for music. My advise is to begin growing their reach and their marketing channels any way they can. This can mean starting and making money from their own YouTube channel and other social media websites. They can also sell their music on iTunes. And then there is the old and traditional way of making money if you are a musician, which is playing shows.

Publishing or editorial schedule for a blog YouTube channel or podcast

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

In this video tutorial I discuss the importance of having an editorial schedule for a publication like a website, blog, a YouTube channel, a podcast, or any other kind of media. Sometimes this is called a publishing schedule and sometimes it is called an editorial schedule. These two terms mean essentially the same thing.

If you like this tutorial, try my full marketing course with over 12 hours of content.

There are many reasons that every publication needs a publishing schedule. The first reason that an editorial schedule is needed is for your audience to know when new content becomes available so that they then can come and consume that content when it is ready.

Another reason a publishing schedule is needed is for your own team to have reasonable expectations hat can be achieved and maintained long-term. It relatively simple to come up with a publishing schedule for your blog or podcast because it has to be a schedule that you can stick to without driving yourself crazy or taking away too many resources or attention from your main business.
