Offering app users extra features or content to make them buy within the app. It is one of the favorite monetization methods among the developers of free mobile apps.
Mobile app developers can monetize their apps by using different ad formats including interstitial ads, banner ads, native ads, playable ads, rewarded video ads, and video ads. There are three types of mobile ad revenue: Cost per Thousand Impressions (CPM), Cost per Click (CPC) and Cost per Action (CPA).
