Choosing the right mobile development agency will help you achieve your goals.
In this article we will go through some rules that you need to follow when choosing a mobile app development agency.
The first step you need to take in order to find the right mobile development agency is to do a research and make a list of web and mobile devlopment agencies you found either on google or social media like Instagram, facebook or linkedn.
For example a great way to find good quality mobile development agencies to search for keywords like mobile development agency or to type on google search “Top 10 mobile development agencies” and then visit the first two or three websites that you find on google, this way you will get at least 15 to 20 agencies with their websites.
List all agencies that you found on google sheet file, with all data you found about them such as website, email, phone number…
Now that you made a list of all agencies you found, what you need to do is to start filtering them and decrease the number of agencies you found.
First of all, you need to visit the website of each agency you found because that will be your first contact with them, take a look at the user interface and the user experience on their website, is it good and professional or just a simple website that has nothing special on it.
If you take a deep look into the website, you will get a general idea about the company itself if they are dedicated and if their work is professional or not.
Once you are done seeing all the websites you find, try to give each one of them a score from 1 to 10 based on their websites professionalism.
Now that you got an idea about each and every agency you have selected, the next step is to take a look at their mobile development portfolio. You can find it on their website otherwise you can contact them on email and ask them for their portfolio.
Once you get the portfolio in your hands, you need to see if they already worked on any application like the one you are interested in, if you found one and you love it then this is a good sign and you can contact that agency to get the quote and pricing.
Right now and at this moment your list of agencies will be much smaller, and you may have only three or four agencies.
Another important step that you should make is to read the process of work for each agency, because that will give an idea about the way the company function and how your mobile app will be built.
Make sure that before you talk to any agency, you understand their process of work and how their will be interacting with you from the beginning to the end of the project.
For example, in our agency we have a very clear process when it comes to mobile app development, first of all we start with understanding and documenting your project, we gather all the necessary information about your brand. Then, we setup a business strategy for the whole project. We then start designing all the pages of your mobile application and before starting the development phase, we the design version of your mobile app to review and once it is approved we start bringing it into life. After going through all your revisions and modifications we finish the project and deploy the final product on either app store, play store or both.
Reviews are very important to validate any mobile app development agency because they give you a good understanding on whether the customers of that agency are happy and satisfied or not.
You can find reviews on google maps or even on the website of the agency itself. That way you will eliminate some agencies that have bad review or comments from their customers.
Saying how much a mobile application cost is such a hard thing because there are a lot of variables involved, such as the number of pages and the difficulty of features and functionalities that the mobile app will have. All of those and other variables will define the cost of a mobile application.
Normally, paying a cheap price for a mobile application is not always the best choice because you might end up having a mobile app you don’t like, so you will need to buy again.
The best agencies will give you a detailed quote with a structured pricing which will allow you to know each feature and it’s price and also the price of each page and also how much the development of the app will take.
If you receive a small quote without any details about the pricing, you have the right to ask them make a detailed quote with everything included and like that you will know why are you paying a specific amount of money.
