Guide to a Successful Project
After years of work with clients who have had varying experience with other developers, we created this guide to a successful project
Think about your goal beforehand
This is our most valuable advice
Long before you start designing your mobile or web application, plan its functions and think about its marketing, ask yourselves what are your expectations for the project? Is it going to be a non-profit project? Marketing tool? New service or product? Do you want to make life easier for your current customers? No matter what it is, set your goal first and stick to it in the course of development and marketing turbulences.
Search for a reliable partner
Look for an agency that will feel perfect to you. They will speak humanely, you will get along well, they will help you in a complex manner - with the right UX design, business model and marketing as well. You don't have to choose in a tender, you can listen to your intuition. You will be happy to see your business flourish and see the great return on investment thanks to high-quality development.
Don't focus on price too much
The low price does not guarantee good quality and is rarely the final price of the work. If there are only 2 hours for testing, then you can get ready for weeks of testing that you will have to do on your own. There are many situations during software development that you might not think of at the beginning and that will cost you a lot of money later - usually much more than the original price. Choose developers that understand you and who will want to cooperate with you on a long term basis.
Ask right from the start how your investment will return
Most customers wish for a really good ROI. Therefore it is inevitable to define ways, that will return the investment on the software development. Is it going to be a paid app or are there going to be commercials in your project? Is it going to be a new sales channel, or its main purpose is going to be raising brand awareness? It is good to pay attention to these questions and a good provider should have an interest in making your project a success.
