How to monetize this app

 

 Using this template, you can
utilize your affiliate links in
many ways. In this particular
app, there is hotel search
function. Whenever a user
books a room, the developer
gets commission.

 

 Push notifications can be
used to send offers and
affiliate links to all the people
who downloaded the app.
You can charge clubs owners
for this service.

 

 

 

The app, while getting downloads,
is spreading the word
about your mobile app developing
company or any other
brand. The goal is to build
authority in your niche and
then promote and sell other
products.

 

This particular app is distributed
for free but you could put
a price tag on it and monetize
it this way as well.

 

 

 

Feel free to simply ask app
users to “buy you coffee”. Do
it in funny or interesting way
and you will be surprised how
profitable it may be. You can
use an In-App purchase for
that. See our “Magic Of Rahat
Fan” app.

 

 

 

 

One of the buttons of this app
is called “Tips/Advice” and
provides a variety of paid
eBooks. The topic has been

There is a button “Powered
by..” and “Are you business

club info page has those
buttons as well.

 

 

 

After your app becomes
well-known in your niche, selling
ad space will be profitable
stream of income. It can be ad
space or push messaging.

 

 

 

“Get on the list“ button provides
opt-in forms for various
topics. Users sign up for
