Pricing strategies for iOS applications

  1. 1. Pricing Strategies for iOS Applications By: Shailendra Sinhasane Twitter: @sunshail Mobisoft Infotech LLC
  2. 2. Why Monetize? • Generate money • How? – Compulsion Loops, there are ways to draw user back into the app – Engagement, does it have engagement elements that could be monetized, i.e. virtual currency? – Value, is it worth your users’ time?
  3. 3. Some numbers ~ • 40-45% of all iOS revenues are from in-app purchases • Only 10% from advertising • Near about 50% of the games downloaded from the app store were free with in-app purchase integrated • In-app purchases will grow exponentially in coming years
  4. 4. Download estimates Estimated download volume needed for Top 100 ranking: App Store Position Est. # Downloads Needed Top 10 ~50k-150k Top 25 ~30k-50k Top 25-50 ~17k-30k Top 50-100 ~10k-17k Sub 100 Free 100s-depending on category popularity -Source: AdMob, Inc.
  5. 5. Models 1. In-app purchases 2. Subscription 3. Ads 4. Location-based offerings 5. Social media sharing and aggregation
  6. 6. To do 1. Try various in-app models to find the combination that maximize your revenues • Games: Subscription based casual gaming package + premium payment for sending best scores • E-books for kids: read once for free. Pay to read again • Security: free trial (30 days) . Paid license for 1 year period • Video: pay per gallery 2. Freemium strategy • Strongest marketing play • Risk reduction • Developers should be focused on finding consumers who are willing to pay, not trying to completely satisfy free-rider consumers
  7. 7. In-App single purchase Pros: • This is probably the easiest path to implementation and launch and it's straightforward and proven • Virtual goods/currency through In-App Cons: • No ongoing revenue stream • No access to user data - makes selling advertising difficult. One potential workaround is to build in-app surveys, which pushes data back.
  8. 8. Subscription - I Pros: • Revenue is sustainable • Renew just as other web based subscriptions • Easy extendable as an add-on Cons: • Requires user management solution • Requires users to leave the app and visit the publisher's website to subscribe • Conversion rate lower than in-app purchases • Success : lifetime value of a subscriber > revenue lost from lower conversion
  9. 9. Subscription - II Apple's subscription policy for publishers: • Apple still gets a 30% cut of any subscription a reader signs up for inside the App Store. • Publishers can now offer an app subscription for a different price than what they might sell their app for in the App Store. • Publishers can't link to an external-to-Apple location that sells a subscription within the app.
  10. 10. Advertising Apple: iAd platform – Adv as an app Third party : adMob, Medialets etc Pros: Easier to command advertising premiums and less pressure to live up to metrics Cons: • Mobile budgets just aren't well-defined • Apple changes strategic decision with third party ad integration
  11. 11. Location Based Offerings Pros: Awesome mobile offerings into a high-fidelity advertising environment Cons: • Complexity in integrating these systems • Requires the device be connected to the internet
  12. 12. Social, Sharing & Aggregation Pros: • Cost-effective • Viral marketing • Better user engagement Cons: Getting advertiser support on a product as nebulous as this is challenging
  13. 13. Other payment integrations • Paypal API integrations • Carrier billing option – Very easy for users to pay • Virtual credits • Google Checkout
  14. 14. other mobile platforms 1 MoVend payment platform • Easy integration – Supports Android, BlackBerry, Windows Phone7 • Sales Track • Better user engagement 2 Bango • Supports all mobile platforms including iOS • Operator billing
