There are certain characteristics that are common to both highly successful Indian app developers and their mobile app development team and these characteristics have been discussed right below. It is necessary that you work towards exhibiting these characteristics.
They are effective
Successful Indian app developers are very effective at what they do and at convincing clients. Being effective at what you do means virtually all your clients enjoy your services. So, to be among the successful app developers in India
, you need to deliver at all costs.
Remember, app development is not an easy service because every single mobile app is unique. So, you may need to start building every app from the scratch. Apart from that, you will also have to go through sharp curves and rough edges in the design and development of each mobile app especially when working with a client that is difficult to please. No matter what comes at them, successful Indian app developers still manage to get the job done.
Focus on users
Every mobile app is neither for you nor for your client. Every app is meant for users. So, successful Indian app developers usually focus on user experience in the development of apps. Once you make user experience your priority, you will boost the chances of success of the app.
Being user-focused will also lead you to seek users opinions in every stage of the app development. Even after launching the app, you will also be user-focused in every update as you will continuously seek their feedback and the truth is, continuous engagement makes users retain your app on their phones.
Successful app developers are usually very creative. Some people learnt to be creative while creativity is inborn in some other people. You just have to be one of them. However, if you find it difficult to be creative, you may need to partner with a creative person that will come up with a creative app design and you will only get to implement it. The biggest advantage of creativity is that it makes your app stand right out from the rest. You need to be able to think outside the box all the time. Creative apps also offer better user experience
Great tech skills
To be successful in app development, you need to have great tech skills and you should also be ready to keep learning as the technology advancement in the industry is at a breakneck speed. This is why the best app developers are the ones that are always taking more classes. You must never give room for complacency otherwise, you will find out that you are already lagging behind.
App developers are curious-minded
Great app developers are not only interested in success, they are also interested in failures too. They usually try to learn as much as possible from every failure and mistake. When things don’t turn out as expected, they are ready to find out all the reasons why they didn’t, so that they (app developers) can avoid such mistakes next time.
You must always be ready to learn from your mistakes and the mistakes of others. This is how to gather so much experience within a short period. It will be easy if you are curious-minded.
You have to be determined
Determination is said to be the key to success because success doesn’t come cheap and easy. This is applicable to app development too. Writing numerous lines of codes isn’t easy especially when you eventually discover a terrible mistake and have to start from scratch. So, you must be determined to deliver customer satisfaction at all time and you must also be ready to handle as many revisions as possible. Without determination, you may get frustrated and change your profession.
They are flexible and agile
Clients’ needs often change within each project but you have to be flexible and agile enough to make all the necessary changes. This may sound easy but it is not. Imagine having to change the entire design of an app
just when you thought you were already half way through. Really, it can be annoying and frustrating but it sure will bring the client back because they will appreciate it.
Versatility is important too
The 4 major mobile platforms are Android, iOS, Windows, and RIM (Blackberry). The best app developers usually exhibit cross-platform app development skills. Although some app developers are fantastic in just one platform but more experienced app developers can develop apps for all the 4 platforms. So, it is also better for you to also work towards having cross-platform app development skills.
At least, you should be good in both iOS and Android since they both rule the market. A client will always choose an app developer with cross-platform skills over the one that can only handle a single platform.
Proven track record
One thing clients love is a proven track record. This is why experienced mobile app developers keep getting more clients than new ones. You also need to have a proven track record to be able to stand on your own. You may need to work in a mobile app development company for some years to gather enough experience before you set up your own mobile app development company.
Having a proven track record is one thing, being able to provide it to back up your pitching efforts is another. It is important you arrange your portfolio in a very presentable and convincing manner.
Successful app developers offer quick turnaround
Another important factor that big clients consider when selecting a mobile app developer is quick turnaround. So, great app developers have mastered the skill of developing apps within a short period of time. You should also learn to offer quicker than average turnaround time. At the same time, you should never sacrifice quality for turnaround time. In fact, if you have to sacrifice one for the other, you should sacrifice quick turnaround for quality. There is no point beating the deadline on a job that will be returned or rejected.
In conclusion, while developing the right skills is very important, exhibiting the qualities listed above will help you stand out all the time. Back
