MVP – Why You Should Dream Big, But Start Small

Developing an MVP (Minimum Viable Product) instead of a fully functional mobile or web app, is often the best way to save time and money, meanwhile allowing you to test your ideas in practice. It also gives you a chance to learn how real customers use your digital product, and implement changes that you and your dev team would never think of during the development process. Learn why launching an MVP is the most important part of your product’s development journey and why it is just the beginning of it.

Keep Your Priorities Straight

When developing an MVP you have to decide how minimum is your Minimum Viable Product. What functionalities make your digital product special, and which features bring benefits to your users. Thanks to this approach you will have a clearer vision of your USP and business goals.

Save Money and Time

Developing an MVP is not an excuse to build a bad product. You can save money by not creating features that potential clients may not want to use. Thanks to the MVP you will get the answers as to whether your app development is going in the right direction.

Test & listen to your clients’ feedback

When working with your development team, after some time, it is hard to tell if your digital product is intuitive. Being too familiar with an app or software interface can make you and your team ignore some major problems. Even the best testers will never replace real customer feedback. Remember, there is nothing better than the opinion of the people you are creating your product for.

Your web or mobile app MVP is not as successful as you wanted it to be. All’s not lost yet! When creating an MVP – changes are something you and your team are ready for. Thanks to which, you will still have a chance to create a legendary product!

New features? No problem!

Do you remember Facebook or Instagram from 2015? It is hard to tell how many new features were implemented in the last three years.
Creating an MVP will make you realize how important it is to listen to your users and understand that the product development never stops. Keep in mind that continual product iteration is the everyday life of every successful digital product.

The great MVP example – Spotify

Did you know that when Spotify was launched in 2009 it was focused only on one feature that mattered most? The music streaming experience! With only a desktop app Spotify was able to start market research and achieve their first business goals; and in turn, to expand into the US market.
