CAPE TOWN APP DEVELOPMENT HACKS FOR ROOKIES
Know your target market (super well!)
First things first – get to know your target market and research your competitors. This exercise will help you to determine whether there is indeed a gap in the market and to refine your app offering to fit that gap. Ideally, you want to take a good, hard look at your competitors, their strategy, strengths, and weaknesses, as well as their USP and client reviews. This will allow you to avoid their mistakes and leverage on strategy elements that work.
Know whether you want to go native, hybrid or web-based
There are a few important technical decisions you have to make early on, including whether you will be going native, hybrid or web based. If your market research was thorough enough, it should be fairly simple to make this decision at the hand of your findings regarding functionality requirements, etc.
Figure out the monetising aspect
While some businesses develop an app as a resource for their target demographic, or to assist at different points along their sales funnel, many would-be app owners want to make money straight off the platform itself. In this case, it will be worth your while do discuss your options with a Cape Town app development expert, so you can streamline your app to suit along those lines.
Be ready to brand & create buzz
An app is only as strong as the branding, PR and pre-launch buzz created to usher it into the world. You may think that it’s too soon to think about marketing, but we’re here to tell you it should be top of mind from the word go. Finding the channels where your audience hangs out, developing a CI that speaks to their preferences and generating pre-launch content that sets you apart as a thought leader will make all the difference in terms of your eventual reach.
