In both iOS and Android app stores, free apps dominate the downloads over paid apps. This means that app developers and publishers have to formulate effective strategies to monetize their apps without compromising the user-experience. There are various monetization models available to app developers, which if used smartly can be advantageous to both publisher and user. The panel, “Monetization strategy using Advertising for your App” will focus on how mobile app publishers and developers can leverage these models to successfully monetize their apps while retaining their user base.
