Hello! So, one question we get pretty often is, “Can you build me an app?”
I think that’s because most business owners know that apps are sort of the forward-looking, cool technology of the day— sort of where the future is, and they can even give them a competitive advantage, if they do it right.
The challenge is that most people get pretty massive sticker shock when they find out how much it actually costs to build an app. I think that because most people find that apps are cheap to use, they believe they’re probably also cheap to build.
Unfortunately, though, they’re really custom software and custom software is not cheap. So, you know, if you want to just a simple app that does some messaging capabilities, you’re probably looking in the neighborhood of $30,000 just to get started. If you wanted something more complex like Uber’s app or Peloton, you’re probably talking $250,000— maybe more— so you can see how there’d be massive sticker shock there.
That’s also just to get started. That’s just a build the app. There’s ongoing costs associated with maintenance because every time Android or iOS makes an update, you’re going to have to update your app. Every time new phones come out, there’s going to be compatibility issues, and you’re going to have to do updates for that… So, you know, this constant maintenance problem is going to really just kind of bleed you dry, ‘cause every time you have to make those updates, you’re paying somebody to do it.
So, we realized that there is a better way to do this, and that’s why we created AppDingo.
To the outside world, AppDingo looks like it’s your own custom app, except that, you know, it’s about 95% or more less expensive. Itt’s just a simple, flat monthly rate, no surprise fees— just month to month. You can quit it at any time, and it’s backed by a team of people eager to help you.
So, if this sounds kind of like what you’ve been looking for and you’re ready to have your own app (Finally!) then reach out. Give us a call. You know, we’d love to talk to you.
