HOW TO EARN MONEY WITH AN APP

The presence of SkaDate’s mobile dating applications to supplement your regular website experience really elevates your business above the fold. After all, the majority of people online today are using apps for all sorts of activities, and dating is no exception.

How about making another step, and entering a full-on monetization mode with SkaDate mobile dating apps, available through App Basic Customization service? This is totally possible by enabling in-app purchases – a system that allows one click payments right within the application.

Examples of what can be monetized through in-app purchases:

Photos

 

– Viewing photos
– Uploading photos

Messages

 

– Continuing conversation
– Reading incoming messages
– Sending private messages
– Reading incoming chat messages
– Starting new chat conversations
– Continuing chat conversations

Users

 

– Viewing profiles
– Searching through users

Employing Memberships and Credits

Memberships

As the name implies, different memberships have different sets of benefits for app users. For instance, a free membership can impose limits on what actions are available for users, while a VIP membership lifts all restrictions and opening possible options within app.

Credits

Credits are sold to site members in exchange for real money, and then used for on-site and in-app spending – for example to buy access to certain features and actions available only to VIP members. This is where paid memberships also come to play.

Recent findings show that mobile app members in general are more inclined to spend money through in-app systems, in comparison to regular web purchases. It is likely that mobile app users encounter such payments regularly, and actually tend to expect some sort of monetization during an app experience.

Let’s see a couple of example of in-app purchases

within SkaDate Mobile Dating App:

Hot List

1. A user wants to add his profile to the Hot List
