Tips on Making Money From Games
Hey guys, here's a few tips on making money from your games. This isn't promoting but a free way to make some dollars. It would also help to have pro if you're reading this.
1. I-Ads: This is one of the most simple ways in my opinion. Buy I-Ad if you haven't already, then place ONE ad on each screen EXCEPT the playing screen. Don't wanna jack it up with ads cause it gets a bit laggy playing it. If 50-75 people play your game a day this is $1-$15 a day just from ads.
2. In-app Purchases: Adding in-app purchases is simple but there's more to it. You have to make good deals and create more than just coins for purchase. For example: In my game, Meow Meow! (which is still in progress) here's what my in-app purchases are.
No Ads 0.99
2,000 Gold 0.49
5,000 Gold 0.99
15,000 Gold 1.99
40,000 Gold 4.99
Bonus Map Pack (5 extra maps, 2 times the amount of apps you get normally) 0.99
Ever-lasting Powerups (Yes, I have a name for this powerup but I rather not release much info b4 I release my game.) 1.99
I've got more in mind that aren't here. But a store like this is way more exciting than a store that just has no ads and 100 gold for sale. Also, with the gold purchases, each time you go up in price, you get a better deal as in the quantity of the gold. If you have 100 people in your shop a day, at least 20 will be tempted to buy something, which will bring at least $30 a day.
3. Money Up Front: I don't prefer this method but it does work if you have a really good game, I'm not gonna talk about this one cause it's a bit complicated.
