In today’s age, both websites and applications are getting very popular. All kind of businesses are trying to reach their customer on any device possible.
So the question you may want to ask yourself is – Do I need a website or an app?
The real answer is where does your customer hang out most and where are they visibly going to find you?
But here are a two more things to consider before making a decision…
1) How personalised do you need to be?
Generally speaking both are fairly personalised, but due to the app user experience apps can offer a more personalised experience. Here are some great ideas for an app – Top App Developers.
Though given the same environment and user setup a website could offer a similar user experience.
2) What’s your budget?
With most of these projects, budget is very important for making a decision.
Typically speaking, websites are always going to be cheaper than apps and take less time to create, well given you have the right team on your side (see Volt Agency)
Websites will usually cost somewhere between $1,500 to about $6,000 depending on the complexity of the website. While apps will usually start at about $10,000 and go up to about $120,000 depending on the complexity of the app.
I hope this helps you make a good judgement on whether you want an app or a website.
All the best!
