We’re looking forward to seeing the great apps developers are creating for the iPad! Unfortunately, there’s a huge lack of ad monetization partners that allow developers to make money off of their free apps while maintaining the look and feel they’ve worked so hard to create. That’s why we’d like to introduce our new iPad SDK.

This is the first post to share my experiences on App Monetization Strategies. Check back frequently as this will be an on-going series.
As an app developer, it’s critical to know as much as possible about app monetization strategies. Many popular strategies today include ads as a revenue component, but navigating the sea of different ad providers can be harrowing. Should you choose one ad network or multiple ad networks? What about an ad exchange or mediation layer? Read on to find out more about mobile ad providers.
Today, we’re excited to announce the wide release of Burstly, the only open and free ad management platform for developers.
So what exactly is an open ad management platform and why should you use one instead of your current solution? We realize that as developers, a lot of you have multiple apps and that you’re monetizing them in a variety of different ways. Of course, you have ad revenue that’s coming in from your ad network and ad exchange partners. And for that, we’ve built an open source SDK that provides a mediation layer for 8+ partners today with the ability to easily add new ones. But you might also make money selling a paid, full version of your app, or up-selling features through in-app purchases, or even selling ads or sponsorships directly to advertisers. An ad management platform lets you see across ALL of your revenue sources and provides the visibility and control needed to take advantage of them from one centralized place. Seeing this data in one place empowers you to run what makes you the most money vs. ad networks or ad exchanges.
