If you want to sell something online, the best way to do it is via mobile app, as most consumers prefer this communication channel. Further in the article we will tell you how to create your own e-Commerce application, what you need for this, and how much it will cost to develop it.
The first stage when launching any commercial startup is analyzing a business idea, how much it will be in demand in the market. Such an analysis can be entrusted to a consulting agency or carried out independently using various tools. Here's what you can use to analyze a business idea.
View trends. Using a tool as simple as Google Trends, you can check the development of Internet users' interest in keywords that characterize your business idea. To do this, just enter the name of the niche (for example, Audiobooks) and the region (for example, USA), after which the service will show the dynamics of search activity associated with the selected keyword.
Take polls. If you know exactly who your target audience is, you can directly ask them questions about your business idea and application. You can do this through social media surveys and Google Forms, or by using services such as SurveyMonkey.
At this stage, you must decide on the value proposition of your project and how to monetize it. A value proposition is a simple and clear statement of the benefits that consumers will receive from using or purchasing your app. It depends on the business idea and niche.
A good example of value can be found at Stripe: "Online and Mobile Payments Built for Developers." With the help of one slogan, the payment service makes it clear what kind of product they have and who its target audience is. Another good example from Dollar Shave Club is "A great shave for a few bucks a month." A brand in its value proposition indicated both its product and its target audience and the most significant selling point - a low price.
Mobile apps make money in this way.
