As you are reading this article, you have somewhere made up your mind to mold your app idea into reality, that’s a very good start. Now that you have made up your mind for the app development, let’s give you heads up on top 7 things to consider before sailing into the app development ship. Let’s start,

1) Brainstorm your app idea
Brainstorming is the critical phase of the app idea nurturing. This might be expressing your idea in the most optimum manner and getting ready for that positive & negative feedback.

It’s equally important & critical to work on negative feedback as well. As they would be out future app users and we must respect their opinions, although it would be difficult for us to decide whether to embrace those feedbacks or to ignore them.

I would suggest having kind of small meetup with users belonging to a different industry to test & validate your idea, That would be helpful for our next point as well which is Market research. I would be inviting the users from different sections including but not limited to People belonging to different age groups, from different technical expertise groups & different industries.

2) Market research
Market research, well this is the term you would be hearing a lot during your initial and pre-launch phase of the app. So what is market research? Well, market research is analysing & understanding of the trends of the industry in which you are planning to launch your apps. There would be many factors dependent on the market research which you should take into consideration and are as under:

Competitors analysis
Defining the most precious functionality involved in achieving the solution or features you will be
provided in your app.
Revenue growth over some time.
Cost involved
Profit to Risk ratio
Although there would be way more parameter involved in market research than which I have mentioned above, I would recommend to do this initial research and spend more resources here than realizing at the end that investment was not worth the risk or it has too high competition or surviving into this market is a big challenge.

3) Explore your target audience
Defining the Target Audience would be helpful and would be equally challenging. This would help you in many things at your app development stage starting from the UI/UX development to the marketing stage. If the app having females as their target audience the color schemes to be designed and app UX to be defined would be easy and would create a positive & pleasant experience for the end users.

When you want to market out your apps if you have the target audience with you than you could define your digital marketing platform easily. These days the Facebook Advert campaign lets you decide your target audience based on the gender, age, their interest, and demographics. Be very careful about deciding this & pay your full attention during exploring the target audience phase.

4) Choose technology stack
Technology stack, that sounds techie word, well it is techie word. But you would have to dig deeper while taking this decision. There would be 3 major factors for the app development stack :

-Deciding amongst Native Apps / Hybrid App Development

Well, if your app does not have many dependencies on hardware things like a beacon, or your app does not need that GPU power like games you could select with the Hybrid app development.

But if budget permits you and you have those hardware requirements or you want to have 100% optimized performance you should go with native app development.

-Backend as OpenSource or Microsoft Technologies
You must be wondering why is this guy throwing those technical jargons in front of me, well let me simplify things, You could select OpenSource technology to developer your backend/frontend app with which is free of license fees which might help you lower your budgets but there might be some pros & corns for the same.

On other hands the Microsoft & Other paid license technology will bring heavy license fees & stability & reliability along with them. So its completely up to you to decide.

-Language Selection for the development of Mobile Apps
I would recommend you to explore out all list of languages which are in trends right now, list down their pros & cons and then you should have a matrix to help you out alongside to take the decision, just keep in mind the long term goals & community support while making the decisions.

  • 5) Build marketing strategies & pre-launch buzz
  • Marketing strategies would completely depend on the budget and the app segment that you’re into. If you have a good budget you might want to go out for both Digital Marketing & Offline marketing mediums. However, if you want to stick with Digital Marketing, I would recommend going with ROI (Return On Investment) based model than going with Branding model. Initially, you would want to see the returns on the money you are spending than just to go fro branding of the app.
  • digital-marketing-strategy
  • Pre-Launch Buzz is very popular these days, you could create a series of questions and then reveal your app as an answer to those questions, but believe me, that kind of marketing requires greater complex planning & execution skills with handsome budgets.
  • 6) Analyse & plan your dependencies
  • So once you have your app ready than you might want to see your dependencies and the persons/platforms on which you rely to get help for any of the crisis.
  • It’s better to discover them at this early staged and it’s time to crack some good deals with them, mostly you would rely on the Development Team, Server Management Team and Marketing teams. But development team would be the most important team you would be relying on and you might want to have the quick responsive & flexible team to support you during your launch & after launch requirements to work on those play store feedbacks & comments.
  • 7) Start working on Phase 2 feature list & Phase 2 planning.
  • If you have just launched your app Its probably the time you don’t want to look at the phase 2 document in back of your mind but this is the time where you would be getting new competitors there would be people planning to replicate your app with more innovative features. Let’s recall the race between Orkut & Facebook. The company which keeps up the pace & plans ahead of time wins always.
