Customer-focused approach

Think of your customer first when developing your product and designing its interface. Factor in their habits and expectations. Then, apply best practices and test usability within your target market.

Right monetization model

Some services should be paid for as a subscription; others are better used for a one-time payment. Sometimes, the hybrid model will kill it — in other cases, it’ll be overkill. Work out what’s best for your customers and provide them with that service.

Smooth payments

Make paying for your services “on the fly.” People often make emotional buying decisions. And easy payments will let you use that momentum to gain their business.

Data protection

One data leak can ruin the reputation you’ve been building for years. Establish robust security protocols for reliable delivery and employ proven data protection tactics.

Positive user experience

Word of mouth is a power to be reckoned with. If users often complain because they have encountered annoying issues with your product, others will probably stay away from it.

Healthy investor relations

Your investors will want to remain aware of your product’s progress. Demonstrate the product to them at each stage of development and production, and put their feedback into action fast.
