There’s one superb thing that connects most of the urban and sub-urban population across the world- a messaging app like WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Kik, Google Hangouts, Skype, BBM, WeChat and alike. Mobile messenger apps have brought many things to many people, but the key chatting feature that’s free-of-cost is something unique these instant-messaging apps offer. It’s something that put the users first- and users love it when you give them free services.
If there’s one thing that you’d like to do with your new idea of building a messaging app, it should be how to provide services in a way that are loved by the audience worldwide. Building an app is like burning the candle at both ends, and founders have to make difficult decisions every day with imperfect and incomplete technical information. In our experience, the best way is to approach an established mobile app development company that’ll take charge of all the technical elements while you can focus on the money-making and traffic-generating facets of app development.
This post is for all sorts of business groups. For those totally new to the app world, for those looking to get to know it and for those who’ve decided the blueprint of their messaging app and think they know all, but possibly make quite a few false assumptions.
Before you actually dive into messaging app development, we’d like you to read and learn some vital strategies to move ahead with your messenger app. Besides the common attributes like voice calling, image and video sharing that almost every messaging app offers today, few messaging app giants have tapped on some phenomenal gimmicks that got them worldwide acceptance.
Here’re the secrets to success if you’re planning to develop a messaging app startup. You can learn the best tricks from each of the below behemoths:
Enjoying the biggest market in the world, WhatsApp has been recently purchased by Facebook. So, it’s like Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp belong to a single owner. It all started in 2009 and the user base has gone beyond half a billion on the market.
Tip #1 So, as you start up, the prime focus is to amass a huge user base, rather than focusing on making money from the start. Because user data in itself is a big source of minting money. Also, make sure you are regularly updating and upgrading your existing model with pioneering functionality that’ll interest more users.
Acquiring the top position with WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger, this company is the best example to learn from.
Tip#2 Come up with a blueprint that will introduce a paradigm shift in how the messenger apps work. Replace the text-based messaging with more interactive, contextual and conversational interfaces. Clearly, build an app that’s not using much of user’s phone storage.
If you belong to a nation where WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger are blocked, you have an advantage as a business owner. You have a scope to make a wonderful version of your own messaging app that’ll become the only app for the people to communicate, only if you give them exclusivity.
Tip#3 If you can translate the idea of bringing forth one major platform for both users and brands to connect with each other, you win half the battle. But remember, the app has to be smooth and seamless. Don’t try your hands on the technical stuff if you’re not an expert.
