If we talk about advertising, then surely we also talk about advertisers (advertisers) and publishers (ad publishers). Advertisers put advertisements with the aim to promote a brand, product, or service through these advertisements while the publisher publishes advertisements from advertisers to get money. Most application developers I’m sure already know about advertising as a monetization model. However, to truly maximize revenue from advertising requires in-depth knowledge and not as easy as many beginner application developers think. Plus each ad model has its own strategy for use. Additionally, if you prefer to use the location-based strategy for your advertising, we suggest you try geofencing advertising.
