Hi all, I may be the most uninformed newby you guys have ever come across. But I need help and am trying to get informed.
I had an idea for an app, its not a game but I am realistically expecting anywhere between 100,000 - 1,000,000 downloads in the U.K. only over the next 5 years. (I'm expecting 100,000 within my first 6 months).
This app is designed to help people and my initial project was solely for the benefit of others, HOWEVER, there will be ongoing costs and on top of that, any money I generate through it can be used to significantly help this cause.
I currently have the app being designed for me by someone located in India through a freelance community as I have no idea about coding/app development what so ever. This app will also link into a website.
The questions I have are:
1: What are my best options to generate ad revenue?
- who do I use?
- what types of ad's do I use?
- what is a realistic expectation of £ generated based on my projected downloads?
2: Am I best to allow the person building the app to set all this up for me if they are willing to or will that mean I may be prone to theft/lose some control aspect of the income I receive?
ANY information you can offer me would be very much appreciated.
Thank you in advance
