    Hello, I only recently started making games for android. I used to make them in Flash only for browsers, and as soon as I started making them for Android I got a deal for a game licence for 500$. After that I got a few more deals and currently it's going great, but my question is, should I continue working as a developer, or should I try and build my own audience for the games. There will be many new developers soon for sure, and I don't know if it's reliable only to continue as a developer, one day there will probably be many more people in this business, and I don't know if I will be able to stick out, so does anyone know any good method on how to monetize with Android apps?

    You can use Google AdSense in your games and probably offer an in-app purchase to remove those ads for like $2-3.
    Making your own game or even studio is a long path and you must have great ideas on new games and applications.

    Build free games and monetize with interstitials from Admob. I have tried a few Ad networks and Admob seems to be the best so far for this strategy.

    in my opinion you have 2 options

    1/ create android apps and associate them with ads company *admob by Google*
    2/ build your own games and sell them

    and for the best result i suggest you to build an audience by email list Facebook or YouTube channel
