How to double your ad revenue with Interstitial ads


double_revenue

 

Two weeks ago we announced a new functionality for your apps built with Mobincube that lets you decide where to add some extra interstitial ads to your apps. As you know, mobincube apps used to show a regular ad banner on the bottom of the screen and always show an interstitial ad when starting the app. Now you are able to show more interstitial ads whenever you want in your app. One easy way to increase your ad revenue is making your app show a full screen ad everytime your users go back to the main menu of your app.

This might look unnecesary… but it can help your revenue go double!

App of the week: Astronomy for kids


Our favorite app of the week is Astronomy for Kids. We like this app because of its content, targetting children and young students. It might have a quite humble look&feel and a simple structure, but we’d like to show you that a good and/or useful content can make your app perform quite good.

Unlike some adults, it seems that young people are less reluctant to watch ad banners while browsing an app, so the CTR (click through rate = % of people clicking on ads) is normally higher if your app is targetting young people.

Also, those apps that offer an educational content will have a longer life after installed on a device. Their users will play these apps more than once in case they need to memorize the content, so ad impressions/downloads ratio will be higher.

So… keep in mind that you can make good money if you create more and more educational apps.

App of the Week: Love Cleaning House


IconTo start our new “App of the week” series, we have picked one of the apps from one of our favorite users: Sugar Apps. She is a real entrepreneur and does have skills to design nice apps.

This app is the app of the week because it shows that making an app with Mobincube using just a few types of elements might turn into a beautiful app. Remember: invest some time in your app’s look&feel and you’ll get amazing results. If you don’t have design skills, there’s a bunch of websites where you can find free resources that will let you improve the quality of your apps. Keep an eye on our Facebook and our blog, since we usually post some of these sites.
