App Development Process – Our Process
Our App Development Process
Have you been considering integrating a mobile app for your business but aren’t sure where to start? Bluestone Apps can help you determine a game plan. With our app development process, we will set foot together on the path to your new business venture. We’ll help out with our 6-step process that eliminates room for headache or confusion and sets you the right track for your app’s design, development, launch and marketing.
Your App Development Process: 1 On 1 Consultation
The first step is a 1 on 1 consultation, whether by phone, live chat, or face to face to have a clear understanding of your business objectives. We analyze your situation and provide recommendations to improve your current platform while maximizing traffic and revenue to foster sustainable growth for your business.
Digital Proposal for an App Development Process
After we get a feel for what you need, we’ll send you a digital proposal to review. The proposal will outline the objectives discussed in our consultation. There will also be recommendations and strategies custom-tailored to your business. We’ll give you a timeline and cost estimate for the design, development, marketing, and delivery of a finished, professional product. That is our app development process.
Basecamp as Part of Our App Development Process
Once both parties approve and sign the digital proposal it’s time to get to work! We like to use Basecamp to maintain a centralized space for everyone involved in a project to share ideas, files, milestones, and to-do lists. Basecamp is a powerful tool to streamline projects efficiently and most importantly maintain a clear channel for communication without chasing multiple email threads.
Design Mockups Are Critical for an App Development Process
Our design team will create mockups of how your mobile app can look. By providing us feedback we’ll find a design that matches your vision, values, and addresses your business objectives. Once we have your approval on a design, we start bringing it to life. Every step of the way we’ll be providing updates via Basecamp and will always be available via live chat, phone, or email.
Once we’ve found a design that you like, we begin coding and bringing that vision to life. During this phase of the app development process, you’ll receive regular progress updates. You will also easily be able to reach us with questions even if you just want to brainstorm. The internal coding will be search engine optimized for Google, Yahoo, Bing, and other search engines. This is so that they can easily find SEO important elements such as structured data, titles, keywords, descriptions, alternative text, and tags.
Following coding and testing, we’ll present the development product to you for the final evaluation. This is a huge part of the app development process. We’ll provide you with training so you understand the way your mobile app works, whether it’s content management based or a custom coded app. Upon completion, sitemaps for your mobile app will be submitted to the major search engines, social media integrated, and Webmaster & Analytic accounts will be created so you can monitor the growth and success soon to be yours.
