CPI Advertising Networks

Cost per install (aka CPI) is one type of the CPA model and it is a payment model publishers and advertisers launch ad campaigns with. It implies charging for an instance when a mobile app copy is installed on a smartphone or tablet computer. To calculate cost per install total, expenditure on ads to drive app installs should be divided over a total number of installs that were generated with those ads. Currently an average cost per install is roughly $1.24 / per install. Among all payment models established in mobile advertising, this is one of the most important for app developers, because it allows them to calculate ROI of their investments in app advertising. In this directory we’ve curated all the best CPI Advertising Networks for you.
