Social Media and More

Creating Personalities and Brands on the Web

Going Social? Time for a Mobile App

Having spent many years in the technology field, I have always prided myself in being ahead of the curve. I was one of the first of my friends to register a domain name. Now, I have over 500 in my portfolio.

So why was I so hesitant about creating an iPhone app before now?

After months of research and quotes ranging anywhere from $500-$160,000, I finally decided to move forward with Mobile Roadie to create my iPhone and Android apps for Cyber-Dating Expert. I figured if it was good enough for Madonna, it could be good enough for me.

Actually, my decision to contract with Mobile Roadie came down to two things:

  1. Price: $500
  2. Ease of Use: A few hours of my time

It didn’t hurt that the Mobile Roadie folks only live a few miles from me, so I could go knocking on their door if needed.

I’m now counting the days until my new mobile apps are ready to brag about. If all goes well, they’ll be launched just in time for the 140 Characters Conference in New York, where I will be a featured guest on the first-ever dating panel on April 21, 2010.

If you are interested in finally getting your iPhone and Droid apps, visit https://mobileroadie.com/ref/SMAM. If you put in the referred by name of SMAM, they will offer you 10% off your initial set up fee, bringing the cost of your app down to approximately $450.  Compared to my initial quote of $160,000, you could see why I am so enthusiastic about this new service and am recommending it to all the Social Media and More clients and authors everywhere.

    The reason it's $500 is because you're patching it together yourself, on your own time, using their already existing software. It should be clear that expecting a professional developer or team to offer those kinds of rates is unrealistic, unless you happen to live in India. It's the difference between writing a book for someone and letting them borrow your computer to use Microsoft Word.

    No doubt, your app is great but the price you demand is a matter of consideration. Because if you want to facilitate the use of it, you should consider your price policy again bearing in mind the capability and the region they live.
