    After getting a lot of attention on my last thread about Android Apps (moderators closed it because of self-promotion), I'm going to start a new Journey about making money by developing Android Apps, promoting them and making money out of them by ad networks. I will not post any links, of my apps or ad networks because I don't wanna get banned, but If you have any question about anything do not hesitate on contacting me by Skype (gikdew) or private message and I will solve your doubts.

    apps.png I have been developing apps for a year or so, developing apps is a very hard process, but you can learn by searching documentation on Internet (Google is your friend). In my case I use the tutorials of thenewboston in order to begin app development, they are very easy to follow and you will get a decent level to begin with. After that I started developing small apps, just for practicing and right now I have a very good level. In about 2 weeks of learning you could be an android developer, you just only have to try and have motivation.

    This is about APPS right? So last week I developed a small app, in about 8 hours of work, and for the moment, I will focus in monetize only that app and earn money out of it. My plan is to make small apps, that I can develope in about 1 day of work, rank them in the google play store by buying ratings, and leave it there in order to make passive income. (I love passive income!).
    In app development and promotion the keywords and rank the app in the google play store is the main thing in this bussiness, is about 10% app development, 90% having the right app idea and promote your app.

    I'm usign an ad network for my apps that shows interestials, this is an example, not from one of my apps:

    appnext.jpg
    If the user installs the app that is showed, you get money, so this is like PPD (pay per download) but you can't annoy the user with your ads or persuade them to click on them.

    stats.png Those are the STATS of my first week trying to monetize my app.

    stats_app.png As you can see, today's stats are not that bad 5$ in earnings with just 478 impressions. Those stats are because I made an update to my app improving the ad placement.

    Are you using appnext to advertise?
    How many installs do you have for those 15k impressions?

    I like these app developers journeys. :D

    Good luck!
