Title: Critical mistakes to avoid when quoting a mobile app design project


1
It would not be wrong if I say that mobile apps
have become an integral part of our lives, and
it is very difficult for a smart phone owner to
live without depending on these apps. Right from
the time we set an alarm to wake up in the
morning, to waking up for checking the most
recent emails to connecting with some near
dear ones through social networking, we are using
one or the other mobile app. The vast dependence
on the mobile apps signify the benefits of
mobile app and the extent to which they have made
our day to day tasks easier. Owing to such
proliferated use of the mobile apps, the demand
for the app developers, both freelance
professionals and the app development companies
has increased exponentially. Quoting For A
Mobile App Development Project In order to become
a successful mobile app developer, one needs to
stay ahead of his/her competitors in every
aspect of the app development, including quoting
for a mobile app development project. Right
presentation of the mobile app development quote
is of the most vital factors that determines
whether you would be able to get the project or
not. A successful app developer or the bidder
needs to have excellent interpersonal,
communication and presentation skills with a
profound understanding of how businesses are
developed. However, irrespective of the
2
  • quoting for a broad spectrum of projects, if you
    are struggling for success, its important to
    introspect yourself and find out whats going
    wrong.
  • Mistakes To Avoid While Quoting For Mobile App
    Development Projects
  • Here are some of the most common bidding and
    quoting mistakes which app developers often make
    while quoting for a new mobile application design
    project.
  • Incomplete Understanding of the Scope of the
    Project
  • Every mobile app design project and client is
    different, and thus, the scope of each new
    project also differs. While your experience of
    working on the other mobile app design projects
    may help you to execute the new project you are
    bidding for, but every new project is comprised
    of several unique requisites which differentiate
    it from all the other projects you have delivered
    so far. Thus, understanding the clear scope of
    the project and objectives of the client is very
    important to place the right bid. If you fail to
    understand that what exactly are you required to
    deliver on the project, you might not be able to
    anticipate the effort that you would have to put
    in and it will certainly impact the project
    quote that you will present.
  • Take your time to understand the scope of the
    project and discuss any queries which you have
    with the client in order to come up with a
    competitive quote.
  • Underestimating or Overestimating the Work Hours
    Required for the Project
  • Another mistake which the most app developers
    make is underestimating or overestimating the
    number of work hours that a project will need for
    end-to-end design. At the most basic level,
    developing a mobile app is like trading your
    work hours for money. You leverage your skills
    and understanding, and put your valuable time to
    develop an app for which you charge money.

  • Most often, the app developers only consider the
    time that they would need to develop the app and
    overlook the time required for managing the
    client, presenting the ideas, doing the
    follow-ups and the time required for
    communicating with the client to understand their
    expectations for the project and the final
    product.
  • So, when you quote for a project, its critical
    that you consider all the aforementioned factors
    and then evaluate the time and cost of the entire
    project before quoting for it.
  • Not Defining the Paid Project Revisions Included
    in the Project
  • It is also a common mistake that many app
    developers make while quoting for the project.
    While app design is the core activity undertaken
    during the project, but, apart from cardinal
    development, there are some other activities
    which the app developer needs to complete such as
    documentation, testing of the app and the
    revisions as per the feedback. Revisions include
    changing some aspects of the app such as certain
    icons, buttons, etc. and the addition of some
    new elements as per the clients requirement.
  • While a few revisions are reasonable, but,
    sometimes clients may make you revise the
    designed app multiple times. This can be time
    consuming. Thus, you must always clarify at the
    beginning of the projects that what number of
    revisions would be included in the scope of the
    project and any extra revisions would be
    payable. This will ensure that you do not have to
    put your valuable time in revising the app.
    Also, if a project requires additional revisions,
    be prepared to discuss the additional price for
    those revisions.
  • Consideration of the Additional and Miscellaneous
    Costs
  • The importance of mobile app development in
    todays dynamically changing business
    environment cant be overlooked. But, when
    quoting for a mobile app design project, you
    cannot be ambiguous. During the course of the
    project, several additional requirements may
    arise and these extra requisites

should be compensated by the total project cost.
Thus, ensure that when you place your quote for
a mobile app design project, you have include the
cost and time for the miscellaneous requirements
that may evolve. 5. Not Creating a Lucid List of
Deliverables Being a professional mobile app
developer, you must be prepared to deliver
valuable services to clients and your services
must be presented in an organised manner to
ensure that the client finds your offerings not
only well-structured, impressive and distinct.
Thus, focus on creating a lucid list of
deliverables and milestones which clearly
exhibit that what your client can expect in
terms of the project delivery. If your aim is to
achieve success as a mobile app development
company or a freelance developer, its vital to
quote properly and consider all the imperative
specs pertaining to quoting for a project. By
avoiding the common pitfalls, and by following

success and run a profitable app design
