I can tell you what I think, you can tell me what you think, but at the end of the day your specific situation will go a long way on how you create your monetization approach.

The series actually will offer 12 articles - the first is a previous posted article
which provides an overview of the 11 steps you should take for mobile app monetization. The article series then goes in-depth with a separate article examining each of these steps.
The series officially kicks off with the first article, “How to Monetize Your App, Part 1: Start with Strategy” which examines the three parts your strategy should consist of when determining your monetization approach. You can read the article here
The second article
, “How to Monetize Your App, Part 2: Freemium,” examines the freemium model including why freemium works and how to determine your options in creating a freemium monetization plan.
More articles will be made available in the coming weeks and we’ll keep you posted as new articles in the series are available.Read more: http://www.phunware.com/blog/how-to-monetize-your-...
