Mobile App Development Proposal Template
Greetings From [Sender.Company]
I am pleased to introduce myself and my company, [Sender.Company]. We are excited to get to work on your new mobile app, and we want to make sure you’re satisfied with our proposal and have a full understanding of what to expect in this lengthy process. Creating a mobile app is exciting, and our expert team is fully capable of giving you something unique that will help grow your business.
The following proposal will set a project road map from start to finish. You will have a complete understanding of the process and timeline for completion. And if you have any questions or concerns, please contact me personally.
We develop apps so you don’t have to
We are living in the age of connectivity, and that means more things than ever before are right at your fingertips — literally. With one press of the button, one swipe left or right, you can open up new worlds in seconds. We’re talking about apps, those little icons on your mobile device.
But at [Sender.Company], we don’t just talk about apps; we live and breathe apps. We have assembled a team of the best and brightest minds in software development, marketing, and leadership, giving our clients access to the most cutting-edge technology. You can rest assured you’re in good hands, as we have years of experience in both Android and iOS app development.
Our goal is to create something you’re proud of and that helps your business. Apps can be transcendent, and they can also be colossal failures. That’s why [Sender.Company] has developed a comprehensive approach to app development that takes the guessing out of the game. We’re ecstatic that you’re considering doing business with us, so let’s get started.
What to Expect
Mobile app development is serious business. It takes time and patience to create something that works for you and is free of bugs and other issues. Updates are required, but it’s important to start with a sound foundation. At [Sender.Company], we believe in a thorough approach that provides our clients with as much engagement as they request. While our entire team will be developing your app, we will assign a project lead who will be your main point of contact.
A large part of the work [Sender.Company] does is behind the scenes. There will be times when we don’t communicate with [Client.Company] for weeks, but that’s only because we’re intimately involved in the development phase. However, before any of that begins, we need to make a checklist of everything you want in your new mobile app.
We will gather information about your company and how it works. We will figure out who your customers are and how we can attract more through your new app. Audience engagement, research, and branding are key in app development, and we will conduct focus groups to find out why people choose [Client.Company].
Like a website, an app needs a sitemap and wireframes. Think of this as the structural integrity of a skyscraper. [Client.Company] will have an important role in the design process, as it’s important that you are getting what you want. Plus, it’s better to work out issues in this stage than later down the road. Here are some highlights of this process:
- Functionality and content
- Wireframes, the structural core of your app
- Branding and integration of existing digital platforms (i.e., web and email)
- User Experience and User Interface, or UX and UI — essentially, how you interact with the app, what makes it easy to use and desirable
We’ve come a long way at this point. You’ve put in a lot of work, so now you can step aside and let us do the rest. This part of the process is laborious and time-consuming, so don’t expect to hear from us much. But that’s a good thing, as we’ve worked out all the kinks and come to an understanding about everything that will go into your new app. Once development is complete, [Client.Company] will be back in the fold for the testing trials.
We’re almost there. Your new mobile app is built and ready to launch. But before that happens, [Sender.Company] and [Client.Company] need to collaborate on a marketing strategy. After all, just because you invested all this time and money into your new app, it doesn’t mean anyone will know it exists unless we tell them.
[Sender.Company] estimates that it will take [Number.Of.Months] months to complete your new mobile app. Upon signing this agreement, we can begin immediately. Here’s what to expect:
|Planning, research/outreach||1—2 weeks|
|Design, consultant||4—6 weeks|
|Development||Up to 8 weeks|
We want [Client.Company] to receive the utmost value from your investment in a new mobile app. This budget breakdown is based on the project outline described above. Please contact your project lead with any issues or questions before signing.
One-third of the budget is due upon signing this agreement. The remaining balance must be paid within 30 days of the launch of the app.
ONGOING EXPENSES: [Sender.Company] charges a monthly rate of [Dollar.Amount] for hosting apps and providing necessary updates. Payments should be issued at the beginning of each month and received no later than the 15th of each month.
By signing below, you agree to accept this proposal for mobile app development and any modifications already agreed upon with [Sender.Company].
