How Apps Are Made

“I don’t have time to learn everything about making an app!”

That’s a quote from one of my clients, and it’s something I hear a lot.

Your organization is growing. You’re wondering if there are more ways to engage with your audience. Or you want to innovate and disrupt your industry.

You know *everyone* does *everything* in an app now, what if you had an app?

If you’re gonna make an app, you want to do it right, but:

  • Is it worth the time?
  • Is it worth the money?
  • How much would it cost?
  • What would the app even do?

  • Do we even need our own app?

To answer these questions, you need to become an app expert, or find one.
