Being one of the billions of losers in the world, you were fortunately (or unfortunately) chosen by Dark Star Project to be frozen for a millennium to bear witness to the unimaginable future. However, there’s no one who can predict the next day, let alone an era that’s gonna happen one thousand years from now. Suppose you woke up and the only thing you found outside the cryochamber was an endless scorching and barren desert, forcing you come to terms with the fact that you’re the last of the human race since a nuclear apocalypse annihilated the humankind centuries ago.
If you are a struggling Entrepreneur or a startup you can surely relate to this situation. Innovation, when not done at the right time, leads to ultimate failure. It is official now: mobile apps are now an integral part of recipe to success in the new era (even ladies gossip about them in the country clubs). Formerly a futuristic phenomenon & a billion dollar market that is clearly here to stay, the mobile app development industry is here to stay.
So, how much does it cost to develop an app? As an Entrepreneur or a startup you start with a limited budget so it is ideal to know how much does an app development will cost.
If you are confused or don’t have any idea give us a buzz and our super friendly team will help you get a perfect app.
So, how can an entrepreneur achieve longstanding recognition in this crowded field? What are consumers looking for? How can you build a successful app?
Before answering these questions, ladies and gentlemen, Entrepreneurs & startups here’s everything you need to know about building your very own (and very successful) mobile app:
WHY DO APPS FAIL?
As per the survey almost 65% of all apps don’t break even on development costs and that 70% of developers earned less than $5k from their most successful app.
But why is that so? Is it the lack of budget for marketing? Bad quality of the product? Ugly design? Maybe. But most probably, the app simply doesn’t solve a problem. Until it does that, it’s just a side project, something you can include in your résumé when looking for another corporate job.
It is said that credentials precede promises & reputation supersedes all else. It is said that reaching out to agencies that have won awards, have been mentioned on tech-related news sites, and, most importantly, have the sort of experience that your specific app requires.
“IF YOUR APP HAS A HEAVING PROGRAMMING OR CODING COMPONENT TO IT, YOU DON’T NECESSARILY WANT TO GO AFTER AN AGENCY THAT ONLY HAS EXPERIENCE WITH MORE SIMPLISTIC APPS.” ~Rameet Chawla
For this check the case studies of the agencies that showcase their work.
APP DEVELOPMENT TEAM, HERE IS WHAT YOU NEED
A mobile app development team is sort of like an Opera play. You have the actors on stage, but then there’s a whole bunch of stuff happening behind the scenes. An app that gets built properly is sort of similar.
A successful team should include:
- A designer who creates all the visual content that will be coded into the project.
- An account manager who acts like a liaison for clients & works with product managers and producers to coordinate the completion of different tasks
- A product manager who executes the functions of a director by overseeing the app.
- Off course the developer who put human ideas computer language.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COSTS FOR THE ACTUAL APP DEVELOPMENT?
Here experts gives us some insight: “You’re going to find that you need at least $50,000 to build the first version of your product.” This budget, would probably be the same regardless of the agency hired.
Although the basic mobile app development starts from as little as $50,000, the agencies sometimes, has also catered to customers who had more extensive requirements for their minimum viable product (MVP)–costing them as much as $100,000 for their first version app.
Mobile app development is like a trial and error. The secret to eventual success involves tempered expectations. The most common success stories are based on a solid beta test or a proof-of-concept that is splendid enough to generate another round of funds.
App developers have big dreams for their mighty product before even entering the market. But, keep in mind that to travel a mile, you need to take that first step. So come with up a grand idea, believe in yourself, and enlist the help of professional developers who can turn your vision into fully-fetched reality.
