Breaking Even… # Right, while I’m in the blogging mood, here’s another post that really is long overdue! Back in March (wow!) I wrote a quick update on how much income I’d made via advertising on WristCheck and via ads on the website and promised further updates. Since then a few major things have happened - firstly, I released two additional apps (technically I released MP Checklist just before that post…) and secondly I finally got around to adding an in-app payment option to allow users to pay what they wanted to turn the ads off forever (and again, I definitely need to write a little about how and why I implemented that!
Users and Earnings # So, back in September I both implemented ads on the site and released my first proper app (although I didn’t put Ads into WristCheck until v1.2 about a month later). This was all a fun experiment to see if I could make this wee hobby break even… want to hear how it’s going? A summary of costs # Let’s start off with what it costs to put things together.
