What is hybrid monetization? Lets land up on its whole model. It refers to the business strategy or model which combines multiple methods that generate revenue. This monetization method comes as a mixture of different approaches together. This model of monetization uses the combination of in- app purchases and In-app ads that blend together to maximize revenue at large. The clear goal of the developer is to enrich the lifetime value by using any number of those combinations together. 

The hybrid monetization model comes as a strategic move that improves the user to enhance the app base. It also helps to enlarge the lifetime value overall. This model helps in the ad integration to maximize the revenue which is further made easy by the Magicbid SDK. 

Where did Hybrid Monetization come from? 

Earlier there were not so many ways through which money could be made from the applications as there were only unlimited sources. Users then had two options: either they could make an in-app purchase or they may pay to download. Developers used to make their profit from the impression and the banner ad which turned out to be a solid way to generate revenue. 

There were also many loops in this as many of them were not spending money on In app purchase, for a month. Therefore, the developers need to think about the other streams to generate revenue. 

The market starts to become more competitive and so are the developers. Hence, thinking of new ways turned out to be really necessary. A monetization strategy was much needed as it helps to improve the experience of how ads were interwoven and thereafter came the hybrid monetization model.

In casual games the ads are the only thing around which the monetization revolves. Therefore, you need to hold the benefit and skill level which is usually simple and make the game accessible to the large number of audience. 

What are Rewarded Video Ads? 

The rewarded video ads are used typically in the games and in mobile applications where users get the option to watch an advertisement on a voluntary basis in exchange of some benefit or in app reward.

There are several benefits of rewarded video ads that lead to success.

Hence, Designing the ad into the app could be a better option for high quality in game monetization that could attract the user. 

In-App Bidding and What it Means for Developers

In-app bidding and what it means for developersWith the help of In-app bidding, the developers are able to sell the ad inventory in auction. This kind of bidding refers to the optimization and selling of the ad inventory. Talking about the traditional way the developer could integrate different kinds of ad networks into their app and manage it individually that could be time consuming and inefficient too. 

In contrast with the in-app bidding, the developers could run simultaneous auctions and maximise their revenue as it comes as an automated process.
