My ways to monetize the mobile apps...

A Solid Content Strategy
If you’re going to take the time and effort to develop a mobile app, you’re going to have to put just as much effort into maintaining and populating it with great content/features. It’s often believed that once you’ve finished and released the app, you’re done with the job. However, that is only the beginning. It’s important to have a three to five year strategy in place after the app is released..

Add price tag to it !

App monetization is one of the basic motive of one or another. The basic way monetize your mobile app is to add price tag to it. Then the question arises why we need to ?
The reason is why you need to pay for apps is because of ads. Ads are the best way to monetize any type of free content and most people hate ads. You’re basically paying money for an app so that you can have access to ad-free content. OR the other reason is unlike freemium apps where you can charge for any extra feature within the app, paid apps offer free upgrades & updates after you have paid for the app.

Quality makes money

The first rule is the quality of the app. If you solve the problems of your targeted users and can get high retention rates, you can earn quite good money whether it is direct paid app, in app or just ads. Personally, I provide the apps with ads. If someone likes it, and believe that it is useful he/she can remove the ads along with the paid content.

Hello, maybe you can try the following methods to monetize the mobile app:

1. Find the targeted audiences
2. Advertising
3. Freemium
4. Subscription
5. Time-limited installs
6. In-app purchases
7. Offer wall
8. Cooperate with others

App monetization is not easy for app developers to achieve. Whatever strategy you use, combining the features of your own app and design an appropriate plan to get revenue. However, you have to realize that you must improve your app value and make your app more visible before making money with your app, for the quality of your app will decide how much revenue you will get.

Creative Monetizing

I agree with most of what had been written above. If you are looking for a less time-consuming method of monetizing, it's to turn on the ads, for sure. Also, you can provide your users with a possibility to get rid of it by subscribing to another plan, which is paid. As well as your consumers could buy some extra features, that would make their experience better. Or just make a couple of plans (free, standard and premium) and let the audience decide what they want.
Actually, there are so many ways of monetizing an app, it just depends on your creativity.
