Apprupt: Monetizing Mobile Advertising



Internationally embodied with its offices in London and Hamburg, Germany, apprupt chiefly aimed the iPhone app providers though android is also a forthcoming event. Recently, the company, apprupt, scored an anonymous round of subsidy from its current investor, Neuhaus Partners, Deutsche Telekom’s T-Venture arm, and KfW.

In a nutshell, apprupt is a network for mobile apps. It monetizes the traffic in mobiles by pulling together the apps and users. This is done by means of its extensive publisher network. Through the apprupt partner network, developers are allowed to promote their applications to their aimed group via pay-per-download foundation. In this regard, apprupt enables developers like Men’s Health, CIO, TecChannel, WEB. DE, or CFOworld to deal with their users topical and significant applications and product AMD in doing so, it monetizes mobile traffic.

Apprupt as it was self- defined is a performance marketing network for mobile apps. It offers advertising companies with particularly focused solutions for framework- guided advertising, to be precise, the endorsement of mobile sites, app marketing, and premium lead generation by way of collaborative mobile advertisements. All of these are done through a wide- ranging network of premium publishers. Not only that, apprupt allows app providers to reboot their app users as it has a technology called mobile retargeting.

For the downloads that are impending by means of the performance of the network itself, the developers, at this very moment, have to pay a percentage that stands at 0,35€. They can otherwise apportion 30 percent of their revenues less than the Apple share which is 30 %. At any rate, it is usable for free which is made possible by the various set of tools. It is termed as the “Performance Marketing Suite,” and can relatively acquire through the site free of charge either. In basic terms, you just have to incorporate the made- available download tracking library into your application, once you have downloaded it. Then, you will be able to scrutinize its operation with the public in general.

Branch Out – Expanding your career exponentially

BranchOut Logo


There were quite a few career enhancing and recruiting websites back in the early internet days. Along came LinkedIn and started to connect people professionally and by the time they were done with their experiments, they had attracted recruiters and companies to post job openings on their website. The only problem was that it took them nearly 4 years to get all these features off the ground.

BranchOut is similar yet smarter. It leverages the existing Facebook user base as your potential network connections.  A simple signup via a Facebook is good enough to have a basic profile ready for users to start a job hunt, change career path or simply browse through their friend network to see what they are upto; professionally of course.

Setting up a profile is easy, as most of the information is gathered directly from your Facebook profile. I tried resume upload facility first and then quickly undone. I would recommend that it is better to copy a few things from there rather than import them directly as you would end up editing most of it anyway.

I did a search for jobs in an area and found over 600 results. This was rather unusual since I had done a search against the same criteria on two very famous recruiting websites. The navigation bar on top is done well and provides direct access to messages, notifications, people, companies, jobs etc. There is also an endorsement feature which the site recommends, however, I would advise against it if you are secretly looking for a job as it posts a general request straight to your wall.

As in most cases, some annoyances are to be expected, for instance, it remembers my professional title in the job search but forgets my desired location; every time! I think this is a no brainier since a person’s current city is listed in the profile and if the application cannot remember the user’s past preference then it should use their city by default instead of the United States.

Other annoyances are mostly privacy concerns and the need for this app to post everything on my wall. Thankfully it asks and there is an option to cancel or ignore it.

Branch Out seems basic at the moment and has far to go and is nowhere in the same class as LinkedIn, however it has the potential and users should try it out if only to get an idea where job options are.
