    After you get your app made and get it in the marketplace (independent developers) what kind of things do developers tend to be lacking or not have access to that would boost their exposure and revenue. Also for independent devs where is your primary source of income from the apps (I'm assuming ad revenue).

    I'm not a dev but am going to be looking to work with a dev I'm wondering whats needs they may have that me and my guys could fill.

    From looking around on other post from other forums and blogs, it looks like where most of these apps fall short is in marketing. Advertisers through banners are not getting the results theyd like and are actually taking a loss in some reported cases. Banners and its spot in the market is a passive way of marketing. What I have in mind may be able to give devs the bennifits of a ground level active marketing campaign while also taking the risk off them. so im wodering, from experience, what has been the shortfalls devs have been having in getting the app in users hands and where do most of their profits come from if not from direct sales.
