This process, which is quite exciting from the time when the idea of mobile development first starts to mature in the minds until the moment it is published, does not end only by presenting the application to the users. In an increasingly competitive environment, it becomes important to do additional work to make the mobile application heard by the audience. Promotional activities, which are considered costly and tiring by many app developers, are actually the backbone of mobile app success as well as meeting customer needs.

Mobile applications may not have the chance to promise too much for users to download where they stand in the store. At this point, it is of great importance that the app stands out from its competitors. Even the usual promotional methods may sometimes not be enough to prevent your app from getting lost among millions of mobile apps.

Mobile app ads are a popular money-making strategy for app developers, where app developers get paid to run ads in their apps. Mobile app ads are served through a mobile app ad network that connects advertisers and developers. The app requests an ad from the network and the network uses algorithms to identify and serve the highest paying ad to the user in real time.

There are many different types of mobile ad formats that app developers can integrate into their apps to increase app monetization, including video ad units, mobile app display ads and native mobile app ads.

Interstitial ads are full-screen images or videos that appear at transition points in an app, such as to move to the next level of play or to transition within an app. These types of ads have higher click-through rates than banner ads due to their size and larger impressions on users. Interstitial ads only appear when a user completes a task. It never interrupts the user again when they start their main app activity or play a game.

They also include the pop-up ads that don’t disappear, and the “click-to-load” images that appear anywhere on the screen in apps and redirect to the App Store.
