Let us first discuss the SDLC, you'd be wonder to hear from me that as far as Software development is concerned there is no practical SDLC to apply. In-fact every software development process propose its own development life cycle model or in other words. There is no any specific SDLC to fit in any development process.
Theoretical several steps are involved but I'd like to share those which I've carried out during my job as Business Analyst for the software company.

These steps are:
1.Requirement gathering
2.formalizing requirement (making a document of it)
3. Designing Mockup (software interface screens)
4. Converting the Mockup into Prototype (software with fake functionality with just according to client requirements)
5. When Prototype is approved by the customer/client
Than doing development (making prototype functional)
6. Software Testing
7.Releasing to the client/customer

These are the steps that are usually performed for any medium level software construction in medium level software company.You would be wonder even to hear the quote of famous computer architect Linus Tarvold (founder of Linux Operating system) that all the major software projects that has hit the market has never been passed through these SDLC process that are taught to us in computer science classes. This quote has also indicated that all these SDLC are just theoretical and has a very rare connection with practical software development.

Software development is a time-consuming process that involves technical specialists. There are cases when your business needs a professional solution to complex technical problems, but you don't have your own development department. In this case it's reasonable to use it outsourcing services. This will allow you not only to get full expertise in software development, but also an opportunity to engage specialists with various competencies to implement tasks of any complexity.

The software development life cycle is also called system development life cycle (SDLC). The following are the steps of SDLC.

Initial Review: When a system is going to designed / developed the initial study of the system is called initial review. In this step the overall functionality if briefed that what is going to be developed.

Feasibility Report: When the initial review is done than the feasibility study takes place. In this step the proposed system is studies that whether it is possible to develop the proposed system and will it be beneficial or not.

Analysis: In this step the deeply analysis are done. All the entities involved in the system are considered. The facts are collected. It is studied, how the flow of information will be controlled. All types of requirements will be studied.

Design & Development: The designing of a system is based on analysis. The modules of the system and GUI are designed and the plate form is selected.

Testing: After the development of the system, it is tested multiple times to verify its functionality. Once the bugs are removed it is ready for the implementation.

Implementation: When the system is developed and tested then it is implemented. After implementation it is possible that there are some errors. In this case the development and testing step is repeated.

It depends which method you use. We prefer agile sdlc . Agile development is a powerful approach to software development that was adopted in the 1990s to improve the process. Agile improves many aspects of software development, including costs, scope, and schedule.

Software development cycles help ensure that the product is created smoothly and correctly. With a clear understanding, it is possible to eliminate pitfalls that may arise during development, see what principles to follow, and adhere to clear terms. This makes it possible to create a commercially viable product that benefits the business.

We urgently need a new monetization strategy. We have finalized our software and implemented a lot of features that will be much more useful for our customers. But we haven't thought monetization through, if we apply the old strategy, the profits won't increase and the return on development costs will be huge.

You should really hire a whole team who will think through monetization strategies and help you apply the best one. A great way out of your situation would be to seek the services of Software Pricing Partners https://softwarepricing.com/ They will develop and implement a software monetization strategy for you. You will be able to increase the value of your software, make more revenue, and see an increase in demand for your software. You'd better look at the company's portfolio and see what I mean.
