08 Aug A Guide to Product Development
Whilst each product has unique features, challenges and production processes, there are always three main stages of product development:
Each phase presents its own challenges to you and your team. Here is our guide to the product development process:
“An hour of planning can save you ten hours of doing” – Dale Carnegie
Thorough planning is critical to successfully realising your vision for your product. You should consider not only how to develop your software but also your business model.
In order to plan effectively, you must:
- Brainstorm your goals for your project and a timeline of when you will achieve them; your product’s unique selling point; how your product will make money and whose expertise you will require to build an amazing product
- Research existing products and your competition
- Research the demographics, values, pain points and objections of your ideal customers
- Collaborate with an outsourcing company that has experience delivering projects as well as expertise in developing software like YourCode Solutions
“Great discoveries and improvements invariably involve the cooperation of many minds” – Alexander Graham Bell

“To improve is to change. To be perfect is to change often” – Winston Churchill
Now it’s time to share your amazing product with the world! Once your product is live, it’s important to monitor it and respond swiftly to any bugs uncovered or any user experience issues that could be refined. Ensure a budget is already in place to accommodate this.
Each platform (web, iOS, Android) will require continuous support from a different specialist so consider this when working with a company for outsourcing and recruitment.
You must also consider the marketing of your product at this time.
