How much does it cost to build an app? This is a good question just like what is your budget? At My Basic LLC apps can range from $20,000 to $300,000+ . There are a lot of factors that go into the cost of app development so its good for us to have a conversation to learn so we can give you a proper estimate, oh and don’t forget marketing the app. Here is another article that will confirm app development prices: App Dev Costs.
To develop an app it is not uncommon to have multiple people involved to make sure the requirements of the client are met. Usually you’ll see a project manager, 2-4 developers, QA, graphic design, or more depending on the complexity of the app. If you need the app done in a shorter amount of time that can be an influencing factor on the price. Look, functionality, and features also are factors in determining price.
When building an app you’ll also want to take into consideration web hosting. The amount of traffic you receive on the app will determine the kind of hosting you will need. Before we launch your app we make a recommendation to to start on a VPS or dedicated server and wouldn’t recommend shared web hosting. If there is a spike in downloads and users the last thing you need happening is the app timing out, crashing, people being angry as a result, etc.
Will your app be free to the general public or do you want your audience to pay a monthly fee or flat price to use the app? These are important questions to address in the beginning of development so there is no confusion during development and launch.
With a good app comes updates and administration.
That’s right, you should be listening to your audience because they can give you valuable feedback on features that can be added to enhance your app or they may even point out bugs or features that are making your app difficult to use. It is good to have people on the project working in the quality assurance department to make sure the app is working right before, during launch and along the lifespan of the app.
Who is your audience? How do you plan to reach them? We know a thing or two that will help you answer those questions and we look to provide you with tools that will give you feedback on how people are interacting with the app.
How much can someone make from an app? That’s a good question, think hundreds of thousands, millions, and even billions (Candy Crush). This is not always the case but with the right conditions it can happen through your app. Many businesses charge a flat fee to use their app, a monthly fee, or make the app free and monetize it or create in app purchases. What’s your strategy? We’ll help you find it.
The fight against time
How do you reach millions of people in a short amount of time? Marketing and Advertising. Sword and Shield. That’s right if you have the world’s best app but now one knows about it that’s working against you and time. Word of mouth is good and hopefully that will help in the marketing process. It’s S.W.O.T. time!
More coming in than what’s going out, the Budget
That’s right, there is a budget that should be involved at least in principle. How do you determine if your app is profitable? Look at your bank account. A strategy has to be put in place so you don’t burn through your cash and end up in the red needing to hold another round of investing to stay afloat. Welcome to entrepreneurship 101.
