Hi I'd like to know what is the best way to monetize a graphic editing app. I don't ads would be a good idea. I'm thinking of making in-app purchase for specific options or puting a watermark on the saved image. Do you think a watermark is a good idea and can incite users to buy the full product?

Why do you think ads are a bad idea?

I think Ads are good for games where you make repetitive actions but for a graphic app, the user will be on the app a short period of time and will just save the picture. I'm sure it has poor results in Ad revenues.

I think the watermark is a good idea. You could have a free version with the watermark and if users like the app direct them to a paid version that is watermark free. Alternatively, ads could always work. Assuming you get a decent amount of users the money will be coming in consistently

Hello @hihlander you can user watermarks on your images that get remover when user completes an action. For example on our platform, Pollfish we have a lot of publishers following this approach. Since each completed survey on our Basic Survey Format pays minimum $0.30 you can use this approach to provide full functionality in your app (Remove watermark) without even having to implement IAP.

Try out ads and watermark approach and watch the uninstall rate then switch to just watermark and see if it differs.
