How Listing apps on Appvestor works
We only work with apps that have demonstrated their success in the market. We look for evidence that your app has a thriving revenue channel, such as advertising for example, and can show that existing users have a substantial LTV (lifetime value).
We look in-depth at metrics such as:
- User retention rate
- Cost per install for new users
- Conversion rate of new installs to revenue generating users
- Effectiveness of monetization method
Once an app has been selected, we run multiple test campaigns to ensure they perform well. We then list them on the Appvestor platform.
Your App needs to have an effective and trackable monetization method integrated.
Although there are minimum standards to meet, we know the app market is dynamic, and that great apps can grow really fast, so each app is evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

€ Share Extra Reveneu : Defined By You
If your app meets the conditions for selection, we will run a test campaign to verify the apps performance. After this, you choose the amount to raise for marketing your app, and propose the deal terms that will form the basis of the funding agreement between yourself, and potential backers. These terms include the percentage of the app’s revenue you will share in exchange for funding, as well as the duration of time for which you will share this percentage of revenue.
A typical funding round takes around 30 days. Your app needs to reach at least 75 percent of its funding target. If it reaches this before 30 days the listing will close and no further funding will be accepted during that round. However, your app can be listed more than once, provided you meet the vetting criteria.
Marketing campaigns to grow your app’s userbase will usually start within 2 weeks of the app reaching its funding target, and these campaigns run between one to three months.
There are no upfront costs of administration fees for listing on Appvestor.
We use tracking tools to make sure we do not touch the revenue from your new organic growth – or from users you on-boarded before listing on Appvestor.
We are careful to track only the extra income earned from our activity. We use referral IDs that link revenue to specific campaigns.
You cannot lose money. We only take a cut of the new income you earn.
