    So less then $500 a day? I'm doing 10-15M impressions a day so I can kinda get a idea of the income you're roughly doing?

    Yep. eCPM is around $0.20 to $0.50 for banners depending on the network and day. The mrect's get higher eCPM's at least

    Hey Mind,

    It seems you're making an ok profit with your game per day! Very nice! The thing is though, you could be making a KILLING with in-app purchases. I've got a couple of games a mediocre fan base / downloads (nothing compared to what you have) and I've had some $100+ days just from IAPs. If you put some thought into it, you could come up with some cool ways to monetize with IAPs without harming the integrity of the game. Some things that come to mind (no pun intended) for me are:

    a) Skins - the users spend a lot of time in your game, staring at the same game board. Offer a Pink/Red/Yellow/ version, each for 99 cents.
    b) Allows users to diable ads for 99 cents or $1.99.
    c) Perhaps you could allow custom leader-board icons (such as a star, a smiley face/whatever) for 99 cents.
    d) If you don't think it will ruin gameplay, perhaps you could HIGHLIGHT vowels on all puzzels for a 1 time purchase of $1.99. I know I always am using the vowels as pivot point in the game to start a word.

    These are just some ideas I had! Congrats on the awesome game!

    @pwndroid Nice reply. The trick is to implement something that is CONSUMABLE, not a one-time cost (eg: backgrounds). Zynga and others do this well in their games. Anyhow, it is in the works. Step 1 is to back-port the tech from Anagram Hero that will do caching of network connections to cut my GAE bill. After that, I will update the permissions to include IAP as a follow-on update once I have 'fixed' the graphics to include one-click upgrade to the latest version.

    Btw, my second game: Anagram Hero includes IAP, and has had a total of ZERO purchases since launch (well, I got my brother to buy once to test it actually works).

    @mind - Dang, that's weird about anagram hero. I know it doesn't have as many downloads as WordHero but I would have expected SOME purchases from people at this point. However, it's hard to compare one game to another, IAPs and the motivations behind purchasing them are very complex. In my games the user will tend to get "stuck" and then is more likely to purchase an IAP. I guess there has to be some degree of "need" for a user to actually purchase something.

    @pwndroid yeah.. I ran a survey on the user base, and they all thought using IAP to score better = cheating. Complete user profile/demographic fail on my part

    @mind - yeah that sucks. You have a multiplayer element that makes it very hard to successfully monetizes with IAPs. The thing is though - there has to be a point where you make a significant profit from this game. Your server costs are so high, and the game so good, that you deserve some payback to keep yourself motivated to keep making these games.

    Sine you can't do a "Pay to win" type system at this point, your options are limited. Maybe you should make a premium "Donate" version of the game with no ads & maybe some extra features. It's not a consumable but if you charged enough (4.99) it would pay off. A lot of apps do a "donate" version. I'd pop up a nag screen ever 3rd (or 5th or 10th) game. Examples being:

    This Launcher:

    Free Version:
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...arez.launcher3

    Donate Version:
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...soft.launcher7

    This Game:

    Free Version:
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...lhouse.picasim

    Donate Version:
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....picasimdonate

    I bet many of your loyal users would prefer an ad free version, and wouldn't mind paying. That's speculation tho!
