    24. 24. “First and foremost, there’s simply not enough targeted,cost-effective ad inventory to make the method we usedwork in today’s climate. Because it takes so many moresales to maintain a chart position, it’s completelyimpractical to “advertise your way into the charts”nowadays. You’d easily go broke in a heartbeat attemptingto do so. With these current [ad] rates, it’s nearlyimpossible for iOS developers to get any return on theirinvestment.” http://taptaptap.com/blog/kill-yr-ads-the-donts-of-iphone-app-marketing/
