[Video] Don’t Waste Time and Money Developing an App

Today we’re going to talk about the power of progressive web apps.

Raise your hand if you once thought, “My business needs an app.” Now, keep it raised if you Googled how much it costs…and changed your mind. You’re not alone.

Even the simplest of apps can cost anywhere from $25,000 to $80,000 to develop. Unfortunately, that leaves most small businesses out of the app stores.

Introducing Progressive Web Apps

Good news: There’s a better way to get an app for your business without breaking the bank. There are these things we call progressive web apps. Basically, they let consumers save websites to their cell phone home screens, mimicking the functionality of an app they would have bought from the app store.

The Benefits of Progressive Web Apps

What’s great about progressive web apps:
  • They look and feel like an app, but you don’t have to visit an app store to get them.
  • They remember login information.
  • Consumers can install them on their phones directly from websites that offer them.
  • Oh, and they don’t cost thousands of dollars to develop.

How can you get a progressive web app?
