How To Scale Your Business With A Mobile App

January 30, 2019 Kim Dawson

When service-based business owners want to grow but they’ve maxed out the amount of time they can spend on their businesses, they look to scale their business. One way to do that is to build an app that offers a perk for their client base–or saves the business owner time or money.

This week on The Sassy Strategist, I’m talking with Tim Bornholdt of The Jed Mahonis Group, an agency that works with business owners on designing and developing custom mobile apps.

You might be thinking, But I offer a one-to-one service; an app won’t help me. What I discovered as I talked to Tim is that’s not true at all.

There are so many different opportunities for even service-based businesses to scale with the development of an app.

In this episode, we talk about the development process, how to do due diligence before investing, how to market a new app and both the time and financial investment involved in adding a mobile app to your business model.

Key Points to Ponder

  • Working with professionals allows them to give additional feedback and ideas to make your app even better.
  • Hiring an agency means that all the players will work in synergy. When you work with multiple developers for different platforms, that’s not always the case.
  • Some apps will naturally be more profitable than others. It’s all about execution from the business side of things.
  • Developing an app is a lot like building a house. The ones with more bells and whistles will cost more.
