In today’s overcrowded market, chances are your app will go unnoticed. So what you’re asking here is what should we consider before developing a mobile app that’ll ensure our app won’t meet the same fate too many have. The bottom line here is simple. Just like any other business process, mobile apps have to be strategized, organized and designed to solve the needs of end-users. But this can come across as an ambiguous and open-ended answer to most. So let’s see if we can help tie up some of those loose ends.  Before hitting the market and looking to develop an application, conduct thorough market research. Time spent on this will pay you back tenfold. And while you’re at it, dig through some customer reviews of competitive apps. It can give you an insight into the likes and dislikes of your user base before having to make those same mistakes and correcting them. Resolve their pain points in your application. This strategy will give you a chance to win over the users of your competitors. Throughout the research, pick up points that help you understand your user. In the end, when you meet with app developers to speak about your idea, your language should reflect your research. If you begin sentences with my user would want and not the app should be able to do this task, your research has paid off. Essentially, align your objectives with your users’ needs.   Developing an application is about more than creating a superior app with great user experience. Although that in itself is a challenge, it’s also about ensuring that the app can bring you profit for future development. The faster you make this profit, the earlier you can grow the functionality of your app, making it more usable for users. And especially in this age, when app marketing is dominated so fiercely by players like Amazon and Uber, even the best product needs some solid marketing efforts behind it to succeed in the hugely competitive world of mobile applications.   You can build an MVP (Minimum Viable Product) of your app and bring it to market in just a month with the right technologies. There are 2 main platforms that must be covered by your application, Android, and iOS. Cross-platform app development frameworks might be a good way of cost-saving for proof of concept. You’ll be able to allow for early market entry with an MVP and save money as well with cross-platform development.   When you grow beyond the size of a startup, choosing the right tech stack will allow your app to scale. Scalability is a crucial factor that must be taken into consideration when building your app, particularly if it’s meant for a large number of users and will have to manage large volumes of data.   Concentrate on your core business process. If your core business process is not ‘building beautiful apps,’ find someone amazing who is.

Your visitors would definitely be happier if you provide them a site with faster loading speed and great new features.  Here, I am going to describe how you can implement an attractive design structure for your old website so that it brings you better traffic and better conversions and that too, on the basis of latest trends so that you do not feel left behind from what is going on in the market.  But, first-of-all, take a quick view of what makes your design better:  · Colors  · Typefaces  · Graphics  · Navigability  · Consistency  · Accessibility  · Responsiveness  When you are upgrading your website, you should take care of its appearance, functionalities, and the mode of communication associated with it. There are a lot of things that you should consider before rebuilding your site. For example,  1. Your entire website should be responsive and mobile-friendly. In fact, from 2015 Google has also started penalizing websites that are not mobile-friendly. On the other hand, a responsive design will help boosting higher SERPs and traffic to your website.  2. Your site should be easy-to-navigate. The best thing is to limit the number of items in the menu to seven, make labels to be more descriptive, and keep the navbar fixed.

Always make sure to use some actionable words in those buttons like learn, start, discover etc.  5. Always use white spaces for technical stuff or a visual hierarchy. This helps in increasing reader comprehension by 20% and increased user interaction, along with highlighting your CTAs quite easily and it makes the page looks better.  6. A picture speaks a thousand words. So, start using photos, GIFs, drawings, and videos in your website. Researches reveal that users spend 10% more time to view the images or pictures than reading texts. Hence, great visuals matter a lot for increasing visibility of your website.  7. Integrate social media accounts to your website to increase online presence of your website on different search engines.
