MVP - Get into business faster and stay close to users.

Rocket icon

Hello you brave heart!

So you have the idea, and you made a tough decision to do things on your own!  
Congratulations! We have some great news for you.  
We are here to make things easier!

Some basics - How to build the MVP?

Why build the MVP?

  • Get to market faster

    You don’t have to build the entire product with all the functionalities you desired. In a digital world, it’s enough to solve one problem at a time, to get yourself a great business foundation.

  • Outrun competitors

    It’s not only about being the first, or the best. It’s more about being flexible and open to quick changes! Be more responsive, stay open to new ideas, and adapt to the real needs of a market without huge investments.

  • Try ideas with less risk

    If your idea is something people need, you can immediately build a business with the core functionality as a start. If not, well, now you know, and you didn’t spend much to know. And you don’t have to spend much to try something else.

  • Get quick feedback straight from the market

    Family loves what you do, but are they ready to pay for it each month? Listen to the users instead! Choose features that will have the biggest impact on your success, without guessing or asking people that are afraid to discourage you.

  • Get a better investment and cost control

    Don’t overpay for features nobody will ever use. Be ready to adapt and change the direction. With MVP, it is much easier to be flexible, also cost-wise. Maybe you don’t need all the features people suggest? Let’s start one by one, and check!

  • Use iteration to become only better

    Go to market, get feedback, adapt, go again. We call it the iteration cycle, and MVP is a great way to use the full potential ot this cycle. Build your business patiently, based on a real need, step-by-step. Just like most of successful companies did.

  1. Put very simply, Pagepro is amazing to work with. They feel like an extension of my own team. They’re fast and effective and I feel like they deeply understand our product and what we’re building. For a startup this is paramount for us.

  2. We’ve had the ultimate good fortune of working with the Pagepro team since 2015, building dozens upon dozens of sites. They deliver exactly when they say they will and it’s always pixel-perfect. But not only that, they prefer to under-promise and over-deliver!

  3. Pagepro team came on board at the last minute to help us out with a complex and challenging project. They proved to be an invaluable resource. Pagepro is great at problem solving, very organised and deliver in a timely fashion. I’d recommend them highly and will look forward to working with them again on future projects.

  4. Pagepro took ownership of the project. The team led the front-end part well and was able to guide our agency with little technical React experience. They were strong communicators and kept the project organized. Thanks to Pagepro we could build in-house React competency and successfully kick off the important project.

  5. Working with Pagepro is unique because of their developers who quickly become part of the core team. Despite working remotely, it feels as if they were somewhere in the office. Unlike other dev houses, the devs assigned to your team have only one goal - to contribute to your team, something you can immediately tell. No nasty surprises or side projects. Uniquely serious approach.

  6. I would like to recommend Pagepro as a high qualified Front-end development partner. For the past three years, RevSquare was using Pagepro services to satisfy needs for clients from 10 different countries. During this time Pagepro provided high quality services, big support with good prices and communication skills.

  9. The website was delivered on time and on budget. Redfox Media’s multiple touchpoints led to comprehensive communication and a unified vision that is rare for fixed-price projects. Differing time zones led to logistical challenges, but their experience and work ethic compensated for any issues.

Our MVP Development Workflow

Paraphrasing famous de Saint-Exupery words:

"An MVP without a plan is just a wish".

And there is no better place to try it, than the world of software development.
This is why we have carefully crafted each and every step of the delivery process, to make the most out of your idea, and make our cooperation smooth and clear.
We love to make ideas happen, and this is why we use this somehow ruthless and restless to-do list that will help us get the things done.

We are entitled to great accuracy. And this is the big chunk of our secret.

I. Discover & Define

We are techies, but we are business people as well.
Technology is our native language, but after many years of experience gathered on the web and mobile field, we speak business fluently.
But most of all we have learned that the idea without being investigated based on the market need, will not make it far from the start.
The discovery phase is the moment when we help you find the “gold mine” of your MVP idea.

Market/Competitive research

Sad numbers are 42% of small business failures are reported due to no market need.
In other words, you just need solid preparation in order to raise your chances in the market dramatically.
Market and competition research is the first step.

Validating business/monetization models

Since you already know your value, your audience, and your place on the market, it’s time to decide on how are you going to get paid.
There are many ways to sell your mobile app, and they are all dependent on your business goals, plans, and your audience habits.

Deciding the technology stack

When the plan is there, it’s time to choose a heart for your MVP.
Generally, there are a number of different technological options you could go for when it comes to MVP development.

While choosing the right tech stack for your app, you must consider quite a few things on the way, as it will be ultimately deciding on your app performance, quality, and usability.

In Pagepro, we are using all the blessings of modern web technologies, such as:

  • React (Gatsby, Next.js)
  • React Native (Expo)
  • Redux
  • Storybook
  • NodeJS
  • Jamstack

If you want to build a mobile MVP, you may want to consider:

  • Platform-specific native apps - These are coded for either iOS or Android.
  • Cross-platform apps - Mentioned already before, these use Shared Development Kits, but can still run natively.
  • Hybrid apps - a hybrid app is compatible with both iOS and Android. With this approach, you don’t need to write different codebases for each platform.

Building scalability roadmap

Tell us about your most ambitious plans, and we will help you find the road.
Making an app is rarely the end of the project.
What should be next? How are you going to grow your business from that point?
What’s your biggest dream? Let’s make it happen!

II. MVP UX & UI Design

Mapping/Creating user journeys

User experience can make or break your business performance.
This is why you should be guiding your users, so they will never feel any confusion.
Mapping the right users journeys will help you:

  • Deliver your value in the best way possible
  • Increase the users experience
  • Guide users to the point you want them to be
  • Sell more

Wireframing & prototyping

We will create an interactive prototype that looks and works exactly like your MVP should.
This is the first step to watch your idea working in the real world.
It is always full of excitement and many new insights.

Creating graphical/branding elements

It’s time to bring some colours and switch sketches into real pages.
We will keep your pages in one design tone, as it is crucial for your brand recognition.
Cool design and some dynamic interface can also be one of your value propositions that will make your app many fans. Yet, that is not what’s the most important in building the MVP.

Setting usability tests/metrics

Our UX experts love to test to uncover improvements and opportunities in designs.
In this phase we are already working closer with your potential users and clients.
Usability testing is also a great technique to learn more about the habits of your favourite audience.

III. Development Sprints

Meet a team of developers that will be dedicated and assigned only to your application.
Together with you, we will then set up development sprints that will cover a following development phases:

  • Building the framework/core logic
  • Powerful & flexible backend
  • Setting up the databases
  • Ensuring enterprise-grade security

On to of that, you get a piece of working code after each sprint!

IV. Release & Support

Your MVP is ready to go on an adventure in the real world!
But first, we will go over guidelines made by Android and Apple to make sure your app is well listed, seen by users, and ready to be promoted.

So, curious about how your app may look?

What Modern Development Can Help You Achieve?

  • Do both platforms with one code

    You don’t have to build one app for iOS and one for Android. You have one that works on both!

  • Reduce time to market

    You are able to speed up the development process significantly.

  • Cut development costs

    Thanks to many ready-to-use solutions, you are able to build an MVP quite quickly, with much less cost.

  • Cut maintenance costs

    Modern technologies are enabling us to work from anywhere. This is why you don’t have to hire a complex team of developers. You can do so on demand!

  • Don’t overpay for top quality

    Yes. Good and affordable do exist nowadays. In fact, all the modern technologies are working hard to make things faster, easier, cheaper, without compromising the quality.

  • Build a future-proof product

    Modern technologies (like React) are backward compatible, which means that even in a few years from now, your product will be still in shape, and if you decide to change something, you can do so without the risk of building everything from scratch.

What is MVP?

Product realise icon

MVP stands for Minimal Valuable Product, and it is a great way to build not only digital products but the entire business around them.

The general idea of MVP is to arrive at the market with the core functionality of your product only, and check how potential users will interact with it.

MVP is really close to the iteration cycle, which means: going to the market, getting feedback, adapting to it, going again, and so on.

Difference between MVP, Prototype, and PoC

There are also other ways to validate your idea, as popular as MVP. These are - prototype and proof of concept (POC).

Here’s a recap of the differences between all three.

 Proof of Concept (POC)PrototypeMinimum Viable Product (MVP)
Goal

Gives information on whether the idea is feasible.

Visualizes how a product will be built.

Adapts the product based on feedback straight from users.

Time to ready

From days to months.

Weeks

Months

Audience

Researchers & developers

Stakeholders, developer groups

End-Users

Intended use

To analyze the possibility of building the idea, and its potential.

To attract investors by the presentation of how the product will look and be used.

To find a product-market fit based on real end-user feedback.

MVP Development FAQ

  • How much does it cost to build an MVP?

    It depends on many factors, but mostly on the level of complexity, and how far you are with the ideation of your MVP.

    If it’s just development, and you have all the UX, UI ready, it could take around £20K - £40K for a medium complex MVP, and around £80K+ for a complex one.

    If you have the idea, but you would still like to do research, designs, and UX, the cost could be around £60K - £100K for a medium complex MVP, and £120K+ for a more complex one.

  • How long does it take to build an MVP?

    Considering two levels, a medium-level complex MVP can take you around 3+months, whether more complex ones can take 6 - 12 months.
    Just be aware that some extremely ambitious projects can take you years before you will finally be ready for the first users.

  • What skills are needed to build an MVP?

    Technical skills - You need to have someone that will be able to find the best possible solution to what you are aiming for, and plan the future growth of it. In other words, not a developer-only, but a technical leader that will be able to come up with the best solution each time you face a challenge. Also, how are you planning to take care of development in the future? What kind of team and resources will you need?

    Business skills - you should be able to find the product-market fit and to know how to monetize it. If you search for investors, it will add a lot of value if you prepare a business plan that includes a step-by-step business development process, with all the costs and gains on the way. How do you plan the future for your MVP? How do you plan to make money on it? How do you plan to market it, and acquire funds? And most of all, how do you plan to sell it and build all the sales and marketing around it?

  • How to choose an MVP development company?

    It depends on what kind of commitment level you expect from this cooperation.
    If you have everything you need, except the code, find experts in the technology you want to use.
    If you search for a real partner, you should choose someone who is able to take control over some important processes you won't have time to deal with.
    Be ruthless and restless while searching for good partners. You will probably face critical moments, and you have to trust each other, and know exactly your capabilities.
