How to make your app a source of income
Don’t take money immediately

Include your users experience
First of all, make it easy to sign up with already existing accounts from social networks – the quicker process of signing up, the better for you.
Use personal accounts according to preferences and web activity to offer the most suitable products. Individually selected offers encourage people to spend more than in case mass selection.
Do use push-messages, but wisely
Actually, near half of the users want to be informed about new products, sales and all that stuff. A sticking point is to keep balance and not to be too intrusive and, thus, not to be associated with annoyance.
Your message should be short (up to 10 words), meaningful and valuable for your clients.
One of the best push-messages examples is for a taxi service when the car has arrived.
Encourage your clients to enlarge your customers database
Make your relations with your clients even stronger – offer him to invite a friend or relative. The only point here is that you should prepare how you are going to thank them. For example, you can offer a discount coupon on a certain sum after friend’s first purchase.
