I created a facebook fan page and did some facebook advertising, I think it helped somewhat, it certainly helped build up a nice fan base on the page.

We tried advertising through Admob and received a few downloads through it, but the cost per download greatly exceeded the 99 cent price of our app. If someone has more money to play around with, they could try targeting different ad copy, demographics, etc. and see if they get better results.

I've got an ad pending right now. I've put $50 into it and only target U.S users on wifi networks, so we'll see what happens.

AdMob is useless now and i just change the target to U.S only.
But the $50 is almost out.

we tried a few months back with advertising over AdMob - 100$ went in minutes and we didn't see any changes

we also tried using the home ads, similarly - no changes noticeable

so we gave up on both

I have never tried admob but from experiances with apps it's in you usually accidentally tap on it instead of tapping it because you think it's cool. I've never even looked at The admob ad or come close to buying it.
