This is the wrong question to ask its like asking how much revenue is good. The more the better.
In general i would place a value of $.25 to $.75 in potential revenue on single MAU on average. However this varies based on the 3 levers which are: # of MAU, length of session, and frequency. It also varies on the type of monetization and app type ie in app purchase vs ads, games vs utilities. etc.
Another interesting thing we're seeing on apptopia now is people buying up android apps with large install base, but low engagement i.e. utilities. As it turns out you can monetize the apps with certain ad networks that install some addons to the phone and display ads outside the app or through push notification. Some examples: Pingjam for caller id ads, Airpush for push notification ads,StartApp and many more. At some point Google will catch up and block these networks but as of right now its a wild wild west out there....
hope this helps.
Eliran and I have explored a few potential investment opportunities. He is able to explain the technologies in various industries as to how they would apply towards building a product/startup. He is well connected and respected in the startup community. What I like most is that he is not scared to try new approaches to ideas that others would consider off the wall. It's his ability to adapt that will lead him towards founding the next billion dollar idea. I look forward to exploring ideas with in the future.
Eliran is extremely ambitious and full of energy. He has extensive knowledge in all aspects of entrepreneurship with a special passion for innovative technologies. It has been a pleasure working with Eliran as he is inspiring and easy to get along with.
Eli is a bright and diligent student. I am also impressed by his entrepreneurial spirit.
I have known Eli for a long time, and he has proved to be an invaluable source of advice for me and my company. Eli is hardworking, extremely knowledgeable about his field, and I count him as one of my closest friends and mentors.
I worked closely with Eli at GreatPoint Energy. He's smart, energetic,hard working and has a great business acumen. His project management skills are outstanding as he always delivered above expectations. He was a pleasure to work with and I'd highly recommend him.
Eli was a strudent of mine who was driven to succeed in the entrepreneurial business on which he was working while taking my Corporate Fiance class. He has good entrepeneurial instincts and worked hard at developing that business.
Working with Eliran is an absolute pleasure. Very few people can take creative ideas all the way from incubation to product launch as efficiently as Eliran. Ideas are significant, but execution is key - Eliran is capable of both.
Eli is simply a fantastic person. He is always willing to listen, and always eager to learn. His people skills are very good, and he makes friends wherever he goes. His technical knowledge is something he takes great pride in, and he keeps himself up to date, even to the bleeding edge.
I really enjoyed working with Eli, and would recommend him to any company as a person you give a budget and a problem too, then let him go solve the problem. He will solve it. Period.
I'd work with Eli again in a heartbeat.
In my interactions with Eliran, I found him to be highly intelligent, highly motivated, inquisitive (constantly seeking out advice and opinions to improve his understanding), and very enjoyable to work with. He was diligent in his work and frequently went above-and-beyond the call of duty.
