There are five simple ways that you can follow to churn out some profit out of creating Android apps. Here’s an introspective look into that:

One of the most popular tools for monetizing Android apps is the use of banners. Banners can found in different places. Regular banners appear at the bottom and top of your app. There are also full page banners.  The thing you need to do is to create an account at an affiliate site and put the publisher code into your Android app. The more download your app generates, the more will be your earnings. It is in fact a great way of garnering revenue via developed apps.

2# Networking

If your app kicks of well then you can think of selling some space on your app to other local or international companies who are willing to pay you big bucks. But remember this will only be possible when you app is a hit. After you upload these Ads on your App, if you can do the networking properly then you can just sit back and count the profits.

3# Sales

You can sell add-ons, other apps, credits etc. on your app. You need to choose wisely the add-on you are looking to sell and its appeal to your app users.

4# Subscription

If your app is a content provider kind of app like magazines, newspapers etc. or a consumer service app like Life 360 then you can offer one month trial subscription to your app. At the end of the trial, you can ask the users to pay to subscribe for your services. This way, you build user groups and monetize your app.
