There’s a lot stacked against you as an entrepreneur. Around every corner is a startup killer, ready to take everything away, leaving you and your new business in the dirt. But if you recognize these threats, you can avoid them and step out of the darkness, safe and sound, hand-in-hand with your successful startup.
You have an idea for a new mobile app. Now maybe you don’t know how to build it, but you know how you’d like for it to look, work, etc. You’re an idea guy or girl. You’re a dreamer – we like those. As a dreamer, you’ve probably fantasized about the launch of your app, the big reveal, that monumental moment that it’s placed in the hands of users and everything changes. That launch, however, will probably look different than you expect… and it should because you should be considering your mobile app MVP.
Mobile apps can be pretty unpredictable. It’s difficult to know exactly what is going to be a hit. It’s a little bit easier to determine what is going to be a flop. As Los Angeles mobile app developers, we’ve ridden the rollercoaster that is development, and we’ve managed to have a lot of success doing so. What we’ve learned to do is spot trends.
Let’s talk best case scenario for your new product. You’ve gone through an intensive storycarding session, you’ve planned your product thoroughly, you’ve done the market research, and best of all you’ve had your product built. Now you launch, and lo and behold your product is a hit. This is great, right? Well, if you didn’t plan for success it could actually be a major disaster.
