If you are intend to make good money which is very obvious than you need to create a strong buzz for your app all around. Making a good money out of your mobile application needs a great marketing skills indeed. There are very different way through which you can monetize your app but following four works the best.
1) Pay once for the app and have full access of the same:
In this model of monetization of your app, the users have to pay for the app only once and they can get all further updates and features for totally free. There is only one downside of this model is that once you make money from one users than you can never make money from the same user again.
2) Pay once for the app and then pay for additional features:
You can make money even after your app is purchased by one user. If a user wants to buy the additional updates or features they will pay more after purchasing it but this model had been criticized as the usual expectation of a user will be that they should have full access once they have paid for the application once.
3) A freemium model for your app:
This model to monetize your app is generally very popular in game category of applications. It motivates the users to unlock the premium version of your app by paying money. The app is free to use but the features of free versions are limited, it doesn't come with all the goodies.
4) Free apps monetized by advertising:
These type of apps do not cost anything but are continually monitized through different ads. This model can work when you are sure about that the users will download it the most and will use for a longer period of time.
