Digital Advertising Primer: Is There Room for CPI, CPM, and CPC in a World of Mobile Advertising
Friday, November 14, 2014
Many app developers who have taken the plunge and launched an app in the app stores have found themselves in the somewhat unfamiliar position of no longer serving primarily as someone who churns out code – they are now full fledged business owners.
And business owners have a lot of hats to wear and are faced with a myriad of concerns including legal issues, accounting, marketing and more. There probably is no business type more tightly bound to marketing as the app publishing business.
