How To Get High Success When You Build Your Apps
Reality,Here is the deal.
Many people make apps and they either lose interest or decide it is too hard.
At the end of the day, an app is a full business and as many entrepreneurs know that 90% of business fail within the first year.
Onto the good stuff that can get you smiling again.
There are many apps that do very well and these apps have behind the scenes of dedicated teams comprising of professionals that make the app work flawlessly functionally and graphically mind-blowing.
You are asking so how can I do this?
There are key factors that make this easier to accomplish.
Dedication like any business. Elon Musk refers to starting a company as “eating glass, whilst looking into the void” . His explanation goes something like this, you are eating glass because as the business owner at the end of the day you are left with the hardest decisions because your employees filter out the easier decisions and you are left with the rest. Whilst looking into the void is like looking into the unknown, in his video he says it could also mean looking into a terminal business venture but he is such a success and this shows you need to be brave to confront the unknown.
Every unknown situation has a way to either fix or find another way as many entrepreneurs have become massive successes in the past.
Moving into the app success for those who are waiting eagerly.
Success is a combination of high human usage and popularity.
It needs to be clean, clear, flawlessly functional, and absolutely beautiful.
What do I mean by these?
As in any business you can do it yourself or you can have a professional do it.
Let’s get this straight, everyone can see the difference between a professionals work and a person who has done it once. This is not to say that some people are exceptions and some people are completely unbelievable talented.
At the end of the day the professional’s work will take your business to where you want it faster than hindering progress with unskilled work.
You may pay $1000 for a basic iOS app from a professional lets say which seems quite unreasonable until you look deeper into the reason why it has been quoted like this.
Costs.Firstly, tools involved.
iOS developer account a year is $150 a year. Then photoshop and illustrator to cut images is around $500 a year.
10% of this is tax. Rounded up
Then the actual labor for let’s say if the app was done in 3 months.Expenses are 125 +37.5 +100= $262.5
Then the developer is only $245 a month which is very little to survive on.
This does not incorporate the $30000 the developer spend at university.
Then when you look at it like this the app seems more reasonable.
The point that is made that is the value for getting it written professionally far exceeds what you will get if you do it yourself.
Besides a developer would have at least 5 years experience after university and can get it done fast.
Then you would need a super graphics designer that lives and breathes graphics. You really want someone who is super talented because your want your app to stand out.
Then you need the graphics designer and the ios developer to be able to constantly collaborate throughout the process.
This value is exceptionally high and then you will need to get the app out market.
So then at the end of the day you have a business oriented app that needs people to use it.
Then you will need to have post app development because after the app has been turned over it will eventually need an upgrade due to either apple’s multiple updates or you want to change something.
Once you finally have a full app that looks awe giving and works like a dream you can move onto marketing. We will cover this in another post.
