Creating an App Is Quicker and More Affordable Than You Think
As Long As You Value Progress Over Perfection
Are you working on your own idea?
If not, what’s keeping you from getting started? Not enough time? Too many ideas? Not sure which one to choose? If you suffer from “analysis by paralysis,” don’t worry; you’re not alone.
There are countless people around the world like you, focusing on school or working a 9-to-5 job they hate, wishing they could spend more time pursuing an idea they love. Despite popular belief, this pursuit doesn’t have to be the next Facebook. In fact, you will be a lot happier if you don’t hold yourself to a Zuckerbergian standard.
This lofty expectation can keep you from taking the most important step with your idea:
The first one.
I know, this seems simple, but for those of you who have managed to tackle this behemoth, you know how similar an idea is to an iceberg:
In the grand scheme of things, the first step is just that: the first step. After that comes the next one, and the next one, and so on, until you develop enough momentum to quickly plow through each step.
This momentum varies depending the type of idea.
You have apps, websites, physical products, services, books, ebooks, podcasts, nonprofits, online courses, the list goes on. With each type of idea comes a different set of considerations.
How is it made? What is the final format? How is it delivered?
With physical products, these questions are a little more straightforward. If you have an idea for a book, you have a general idea what the final product is going to look like (words, pictures, quotes, etc.)
However, with digital products, web and mobile apps specifically, each one has a unique set of features and solves a unique problem for its users. At this point, the process for creating an app has become fairly standard.
What does this process look like?
Stage 1: Initial phone call or consultation with a team
Stage 2: Signing a contract
Stage 3: Wire-framing
Stage 4: Design
Stage 5: Development
Stage 6: Beta testing
Stage 7: Launch
Stage 8: Post-launch
As you can imagine, each stage takes time. Usually, this entire process can range from 4 to 6 months, sometimes even longer depending on the complexity of the project. Most of us are familiar with the saying, “Time equals money.” This could not be any truer when it comes to the cost of developing an app.
For a simple app on one platform (web, iOS, or Android), the total price tag can start around $25,000. Obviously, this increases with each feature you include.
What if there was a way to drastically cut down the amount of time and money needed to create an app?
Allow us to introduce ourselves.
We’re Viabl, a company that creates minimum viable apps for startups, entrepreneurs, and corporations faster than ever before.
I know this might sound like yet another shameless piece of self-promotion, but believe me, you’re going to want to pay attention; we could end up saving you a lot of time and money in the near future.
How do you save time while creating apps?
We’re glad you asked!
Over the past year, we’ve been hard at work developing our Castle™ development framework. After learning more about you, your app, and your business, Castle™ allows us to generate code specifically made for your app. Think of it as a Squarespace for web and mobile apps.
This competitive edge allows us to help you launch sooner which, as we all know, can mean the difference between life and death for your idea.
We’ve also made the entire process simpler by packaging each stage into simple products that you can choose from, no matter where you’re currently at. This helps us customize our experience for each and every person we work with.
Does this sound too good to be true?
At Viabl, we’re fans at putting or money where our mouths are. That’s why we’ve used Castle™ to create our own apps. After all, why would you believe us if we haven’t used it ourselves?
At the end of the day, we’re all about speed, which means, we value progress over perfection. If this scares you, we understand. We know we may not be the best fit for everyone; just those that are ready to take action.
If this sounds like you, then it’s time we talk.
