Method 2 – How Long Does It Take To Build An App?

All right in this video im gonna give you a realistic timeline which you can rely on to build your. Own android iphone ipad or even web app in form of a pwa so if you have an app idea. Or if you just want to build an app then this timeline is going to work for you and its. Going to give you a good framework to follow when it comes to building your app now if you have.

An app idea which you want to build i want you to think of your app idea in form of. A problem solution pair so what do i mean by that i want you to think about the exact problem. Which your app solves for your user base of course your app is solving a problem right even if your. App is a game then youre solving the problem of boredom so your app is solving a problem think about. It and then think about the solution which your app brings to the users to to help solve their problem.

And when you have that simplified problem defined and the simplified solution defined then i want you to think about. How you can help the user to go from the problem state to the solution state in a very easy. And fast way through your app so your app is going to help the user make the transition and go. From the problem state which theyre in right now and get to the solution that they want to get to. Or the desired state now that you have this defined i want you to think about this in a very.

Very simple way i want you to take away all the features all the extra stuff that you think you. Want to implement in your app and instead of that just think about the bare minimum the basic feature that. You need to implement in your app thats going to get the user from the problem state to the solution. State because this is very very important a lot of people make the costly mistake of trying to add so. Many different features for edge cases for scenarios that people would never use maybe one in 1 000 people would.

Use and they waste the resources and energy and time on those extra features that you dont need at all. When youre starting out now that you have your basic feature defined then let me take you through the plan. Which you can go through to implement your app now if youre watching this video im assuming that you are. New to the world of apps so you dont know how things are done and what the process is which. Is absolutely fine in fact you have an advantage because im gonna show you the right way of doing things.

So the first week this is week number one you are gonna focus on your idea and what do i. Mean by that a lot of people come up with an idea they simply go ahead and implement it and. Turn it into an app and then the app fails in the market because they have not defined their idea. The right way they have not done the market research to figure out where the potential is in the market. And how they should build the app and how they should position it towards the marketplace dont worry about it.

Super simple in fact if you want to learn more about this process which is absolutely crucial and ninety percent. Of apps that failed they failed because they completely ignored this step then check out the link in the description. Where you can learn more about my flagship program zero to app academy its basically the best program that you. Can join to learn about building profitable and successful apps in a record time and its absolutely amazing so if. Youre interested check out the link in the description so week one you focus on your idea and you learn.

The market research process and by the way the timeline that im giving you here includes the learning process after. You go through this timeline once and you learn the process then i do not recommend spending more than seven. Days on building an app from scratch and i know if that sounds hard to believe trust me there is. A framework that you can use to build your app in seven days in fact this is it this is. The timeline that im giving you after you go through it once you learn the process then you can go.

Back and build your app in seven days or less then after you have your idea defined week two so. This is week two its time to design your app right and what do we mean by designing your app. Design your app simply means taking your idea and simply defining how its going to work in the real world. How youre going to solve the problem for the users how your app is going to look like and how. Your app is going to deliver the solution to your user base its nothing more complicated than this in fact.

There is a way that you can design your app in 30 minutes and super fun super cool and super. Easy i talk more about that inside the academy and you can turn your app design into a prototype into. A working prototype that you can show to your friends and family and its a very very fun and cool. Process after you have your design ready and youre happy with it week number three is all about developing your. App right so you take the design and you turn it into a real app that you can install on.

A real device and use it this is when you turn your idea into a functioning app and there are. Different approaches to go about this some people chase the programming route which takes 10 000 hours to master and. They quit after a few hours because the complicated skill and theyre not passionate about it and they give up. On their idea altogether some other people pay a lot of money to a development agency to build a crappy. App for them its a very common scenario and some people partner up with a developer and they give up.

50 of potentially a million dollar idea but we use a very cool technique called no code right and using. This technique you can build your app on your own without any technical skills in few days again i talk. More about this inside the academy it shouldnt take you more than a week to learn this approach and there. Are a lot of different options that you can take no code is the one that i highly recommend especially. If youre starting out especially if you just want to test your idea in the real world and make sure.

That you can get your idea out there in the hands of your potential users to make sure that you. Have a winner app week number four is about publishing right publish you publish your app to google play app. Store or even on the web and you optimize it in a way thats going to attract the right users. A lot of people dont know how to publish their app and although that they might have a great app. Their app fails because they havent published it right and there is just so much to this process because you.

Need to get your icon right you need to get your screenshots right you need to get your description right. And theres just so much more to this again to learn more about this check out the academy and after. You have your app published and you wait you wait for the users to download your app to find it. Downloaded use it and by the way you have four or five seconds to to convince somebody to download your. App after they land on your app page which is the page people visit on the app store and after.

You get a few users then you think about monetization so let me just change the color here so here. You monetize right monetize and this is when you implement a strategy in your app thats going to generate you. Revenue this is how you can make money with your app there are eight different strategies that you can use. To make money with your app and you do this step after you have a few users right you dont. Want to implement this system before you have any users you want to have those users come in you want.

Those users to use your solution and make sure that you have a good solution and then you implement a. Monetization strategy which by the way is not going to take you more than a day to implement and you. Start generating a little bit of money but when you see the real money coming in then you move on. To the step number six which is growth and this is when you go all in you have a winner. App you scale it to the moon and you increase your user base you increase your downloads and you increase.

Your revenue and if you go based on this plan you should be able to do everything that i talked. About in less than six weeks in fact thats the length of the zero to app academy and the first. Time you go through this of course theres a learning curve you need to go through every single step implemented. Correctly and you would be able to get your app out in the hands of your users in six weeks. In fact you can get it out there in less than six weeks because you should be able to publish.

Your app between week three and four but of course six weeks is the total time required for you to. Master the entire process but as i said after you go through the process once then you should be able. To build your app in less than seven days so if you want to build another app you should be. Able to make it in less than seven days in fact an app thats gonna take you more than seven. Days i do not recommend it because youre wasting too much time too much money and too much effort on.

Something thats not proven but of course when you know this process when you learn at a to z you. Should be able to go through it in just a few days come up with an idea validate it do. The research design it develop it publish it in just seven days and when you do it the right way. You can ensure your success and its going to be a very very fun process for you and your app. Is going to work in the real world if you enjoyed this video then youre going to absolutely love my.

Method 3 – How Much Does It Cost To Build An App?

So how much does it really cost to make an app i think that question has been asked like five. Gazillion times right and i think anybody whos gonna ask me that question again im just gonna refer to this. Video so in this video im gonna break down the exact strategy to calculate the cost of your app and. Launch it in the most cost effective way so stick around till the end of this video and hey if.

Youre just meeting my name is arsing im a growth strategist for entrepreneurs and i help you launch and scale. Your business using mobile apps if youre watching this on youtube and not yet subscribed consider subscribing it and theyll. Icon so that you get notified whenever a new video comes out and if youre watching the sensory consider following. Or liking my page all right so lets actually go to a whiteboard and break it down for you so. That you get the maximum value out of this video okay so lets dive into this right now and i.

Get this question all the time that is how much does it cost to create it now and ill tell. You right off the bat there is no magic number instead there are multiple factors at play to determine the. Cost of now entrepreneurs have spent anywhere from five thousand to five hundred thousand in order to build an app. That they want but dont worry not all apps are created equal some are simple costing less and others are. More complex so how do companies calculate the cost of an app here is the typical way used by app.

Dev companies to calculate how much your app is going to cost and lets take a look at that right. Now so the way they do it is by calculating and please do not mind the its been a while. Since ive actually written something anyway so they look at the cost and they look at the hourly effort and. Multiply that with the hourly cost so this is this is the formula that is typically used by most app. Division sees one is that how many hours are they going to be spending on that specific feature in order.

To complete it and then multiply that what is their hourly cost lets take an example to break this down. Even further lets think that you have an app which has five core features in it all right so lets. Say feature one two three four and five you know this is what the app dev companies would think off. Is that how much time how many hours would they be spending on each feature so lets say that its. Gonna take 50 hours to do the first feature and its gonna take 40 hours for the second one 70.

Yards for this hundred hours to do the fourth feature this is lets consider this is a complex one and. Lets say 80 hours to do the fifth feature so thats roughly around lets say 3:40 yeah lets me let. Me write that a little better so thats roughly or thats not even better anyway so you get an idea. Right so its 3:40 now if we take two different companies and two kinds of hourly rates into account then. This is how much your app would cost to make lets take a look so the company one is going.

To be charging lets say $50 in our and the company two is gonna be charging 120 dollars in our. Now considering that its gonna take 340 yards for your app to be built lets take a quick look at. That so 340 into 50 it would cost you seventeen thousand dollars if you go with the company number one. Considering that their hourly rate is 50 but not saying that cheaper is always the best option but were just. Taking that as an example lets take a look at the company number two forty thousand and eight hundred dollars.

So thats the company number one is gonna charge you seventeen thousand dollars to fill your app the company number. Two is gonna charge you 40 thousand eight hundred dollars and the reason for that is because their hourly rate. The hourly cost is substantially different that theyre charging at $50 per hour and theyre charging at 120 dollars per. Hour this is behind the scenes how they typically calculate the cost of your tap right so this is for. A simple app which has five features a complex app might take roughly around lets say 1500 hours for the.

Development and the cost for that would be lets take a quick look at that as well so 1500 with. 50 thats 75k wow thats a really bad writing but anyways gets the message across right so if we look. At it for the second company 1500 into 120 thats gonna be 180 k right so thats the difference for. Two kinds of apps two kinds of companies these are the numbers that you come up with so with a. Complex app its gonna cost you 75,000 with company one company a and with company b its gonna cost you.

One hundred and eighty thousand dollars but now the question is that how do these companies define their hourly rates. Right so why his company is charging 50 while company b is charging 120 dollars all right so lets talk. About some of the factors that impact the hourly rates the clearest distinction between the hourly rates difference is going. To be based on location the cost will vary greatly if you go out to a company which is based. All of us versus that company which is based out of ukraine or india you know the average cost of.

A company which is based out of u.s. Is roughly around 150 dollars if you go to europe thats gonna. Cost roughly around hundred dollars if you go to australia another 120 to 150 range and in india it is. Around you know starting anywhere from $20 to $80 depending on the quality so a basic app in india might. Start at lets say ten thousand dollars and a similar app in the us might be roughly at around you.

Know 50 k or 70 k the second factor which will impact the cost of your app is going to. Be the platforms the number of platforms that youre considering for your product if youre going with just android or. Just ios the cost would be different but if youre going for both the platforms the cost will differentiate it. Also differentiates from going with the native app versus a hybrid application the third the most important factor would be. The number of features like we took a look at this the example is that one two three four and.

Five features all of them had a different hourly effort based on which week alkalete the total hourly effort right. So the features that do you want people to sign up using a social platform or just an email or. Phone number or all of those factors and then do you want to add any location-based services do you want. To integrate a payment gateway would your app involve streaming multiple languages adds chatting or offline mode so all of. Those factors will play a huge role in defining whats going to be the cost of your app you know.

The number of features the complexity the number of integrations they all play a major role in defining how much. Effort would be spent in building your app and then in turn will actually impact the cost of your application. The fourth factor which plays a huge role is the design aspect of your application do you want a bare-bones. Design or do you want amazing beautiful modern premium designs the the user interface and user experience driven apps they. Definitely stand out but they come at a price tag the visual complexity leads to more effort both from back.

And and front and hence leads to your app being more expensive the fifth factor is team and experience the. App division sees usually have different hourly rates based on different skill sets each member like a developer tester or. Designer or a solution architect will have different hourly rates in a decent sized company youll typically have anywhere around. Four five up to eight people working on a single project these are the five major factors that impact the. Cost of your app but you should also consider other factors like maintenance cost infrastructure cost you know its important.

To make sure that you have a maintenance contract post release so that your app is future proof against any. New updates by the operating systems which might just leave your app useless if not handled properly in terms of. Infrastructure your consideration towards the server selections and database selection or any major integrations with erp or crm all of. These will actually add up to the cost of your app alright now lets talk about the two cost effective. Ways to build and launch your app the number one is mvp minimum viable product start with a limited set.

Of features yall call competency what is that one feature that provides the maximum value to your users start with. That and then build slowly apps like amazon uber facebook instagram they all started as an mvp with a limited. Set of features and look at those brands today and the number of features that they have so start with. An mvp the second approach is the sas approach now you may not find a sas option for all kinds. Of apps out there but there are plenty of subscription-based platforms out there today in a sas environment the service.

Provider will basically host the app for you they will run it host it maintain it and update it and. All you have to do is pay a small fee to set up your account or a small monthly fee. Whatever their monetization strategy is so explore a few options see what works best for you based on your research. And then take action do not get stuck in the research loop alright now so if you found this video.
