Monetization for Fitness App and Yoga App

The first one is the free version. Everyone can download your app and use it, and you will show different ads while the user is using the app, and through those ads, you can earn some money. Another way to earn from the freemium version is through affiliate marketing, you redirect your users to different fitness and Yoga product’s websites, and earn commission through it.

Another way to monetize your app is through a paid membership and In-app purchases. You can add premium membership for your fitness and Yoga app, which shows no ads, which is pleasing for users as there won’t be any annoying ads, and also you can add some In-app purchases that unlock special features in your app to monetize your fitness application.

Education and eLearning App

People don’t want to get out of this lockdown without learning a new skill, so there is always a demand for eLearning Applications which teaches the users new skills and technologies. So, users will always be in for learning a new skill or a new programming language. So, you can develop an app that lets the users learn new skills that add value to their life and career. A lot of people are building their careers based on the skills they learned through eLearning Apps. So, building an eLearning app and providing education to people who want to improve their skills is a great choice to go for.

Now let’s see how can you earn benefits and some money from it while you stay at home doing nothing except eating and sleeping during this lockdown.

Earn Commissions:

You will, of course, set some fees to learn a particular skill or course. So, the student will pay for the course he/she is opting for, and you can earn the commission between the student and the instructor.

Food Recipe App

There’s one thing that hasn’t stopped in this lockdown, and that is the Kitchen. A lot of people are staying at home and learning to cook during this lockdown.

You can also earn through affiliate marketing. You can redirect your user to popular food websites, and if they make a purchase, you earn a commission from it.

Grocery Delivery App

If you are a grocery shop owner, and cannot open your shop due to the lockdown condition, the safest way to do business is via a Grocery App. Develop a grocery delivery application, and start delivering groceries, food, and milk through the mobile application. You can advertise it locally and can get quite a great number of customers who are in dire need of groceries due to the lockdown.

In this scenario, you can start delivering groceries to help people and help yourself too. You can start taking orders online and deliver it to the customer’s home. And this could be the best strategy to keep your grocery shop running amidst the pandemic.
