Google Launches In-App Billing

first_imgTags:#Android#apps#mobile Related Posts Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces sarah perez Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … As promised last week, Google has now launched its in-app billing platform for Android. That means developers can publish applications to the Android Market that contain mechanisms to allow for in-app purchases of digital goods. Explains Eric Chu, Android Developer Ecosystem lead, this feature lets developers monetize apps using try-and-buy, virtual goods, upgrades and other billing models.Apps supporting in-app at launch include Tap Tap Revenge by Disney Mobile, Comics by ComiXology, Gun Bros, Deer Hunter Challenge HD, and WSOP3 by Glu Mobile and Dungeon Defenders: FW Deluxe by Trendy Entertainment. Google has also provided documentation, a complete sample app, and info on how to implement the service, set up in-app product lists, and test the implementation.In addition, third-party mobile services company Urban Airship is working on a “last mile” tool that will make implementing Google’s new system even easier for developers. Similar to the service available for iPhone, UA’s beta for In-App Purchases on Android is now underway.Features supported in the program include:Dynamic content: The Android Market limits application size to 25mb (even over Wi-Fi). Apps with rich content and media files can use UA’s In-App Purchase offering to grow beyond that. Developers upload paid and free content to UA’s servers and it delivers the content to the end user when needed. Security: Urban Airship reduces complexity around security by validating all purchase receipts before delivering content to the application.Versioning and updates: Urban Airship tracks updates to purchasable content and notifies users when updates are available. Developers can also fixes bugs in your updates without shipping an additional app update.The sign-up form for this program is still live on UA’s website here.

You Have the Watches. We Have the Time.

first_imgIn Afghanistan, the locals have a saying about their strategy with soldiers from other countries. The saying is: “You have the watches, but we have the time.” The idea here is that at some point the foreign soldiers are going to leave and go home, and that they locals aren’t going anywhere. The strategy is to wait out the foreigners and, over time, it works.Giving Up Too SoonWhen a salesperson asks when it is time to give up on a prospective client, or their dream client, it’s because they are discouraged, lack patience, and underestimate the power in a strategy built on a professional persistence. The fact that it is difficult to gain a meeting with your dream client—and even more difficult to displace your competitor—shouldn’t discourage one from pursuing those clients. Instead, it should encourage them, as the kind of loyalty the prospective client has for their existing supplier is a tremendous benefit later, when you have won their business.Time will pass whether you call on your dream client or not. You will still be prospecting, working to gain meetings, create new opportunities, and win the opportunities you create. You will still be doing the work that salespeople do regardless of whether you pursue the cold targets that are better than warm leads, even if they are difficult to acquire.Because this is true, there is no reason to give up. There is no benefit that accrues to you for abandoning the pursuit of what you want. Giving up only ensures that you never have what you want because you quit too soon.Trading Watches for TimeIn sales, you are better believing your dream client has the watch and you have the time, rather than its opposite. If you are not getting any traction, you are receiving feedback. That feedback may be that you are not offering enough value in trade for their time and attention. It may also mean your timing is bad, and that you might do better to try again later.Given a long enough timeline, every one of your dream clients is going to change their strategic partner. The choice you have to make is whether you are going to persist long enough to be that partner.last_img read more

Originally published Jul 14, 2011 8:00:00 PM, updated October 20 2016 Graham does, however, suggest the letter-writing method. He says that in some cases, a letter in the mail may be more effective than email. It is just a matter of figuring out the right address to reach the person. Create resourceful diversity with a cool guest to star on your show, interview for your blog or speak for your business. It is easy to submit a request for someone, but it is more straining to figure out exactly the right person to send the request through. It’s a bit easier once you’re recognized, but in the meantime… Make direct contact by eliminating the middle person (manager, booking agent, etc.). Get to an event your desired person will be attending. It takes confidence to pitch yourself in front of an A-list individual. If you have that confidence, nobody can stop you. Take the chance to sell yourself. Host great guests Search reporters and producers. Leno Persistence is always a work in progress and you never know when it will pay off. But don’t give up; just keep in mind that press leads to more press. Do all you can in your power to get in front of the person you’re trying to catch.
