There are three parts of marketing that are involved here:
1. Market Segmentation - Here you divide the marketplace into different segments or "groups of people" that are potential customers. This could be broad, such as "People who ride the subway" to "Teenagers who like science fiction". You then review the wants and needs of your selected group, aka "your target market".
2. Product Development - Prioritize how you will address the wants and needs of your target market. This is often done in stages or "software releases". For example, you can say that "Version 1.0" will do this, and then "Version 2.0" will add these features, etc. Often Version 1.0 is known as the Minimum Viable Product (doing the least possible, to get early feedback from your target market).
3. Market Awareness - Often, how successful a solution is more about how many people are aware of it at all. This can be done through advertising, word of mouth, etc. Just being listed in the software catalog is often not enough. How will you reach your target market?

Hello Genesis,

Here are some key steps to follow in order to create an application that is both beneficial and popular:

1. Initiate with an idea: Start by brainstorming to generate unique and innovative ideas for your application.

2. Conduct thorough research: Ascertain whether there is a demand for your proposed application. Check if there are any existing applications similar to your idea. If so, identify how your app can stand out and offer something different.

3. Outline the application's functionality: Detail how your application will operate and what features it will provide to the users.

4. Start the development process: Begin the coding phase or collaborate with skilled coders who can bring your vision to life. Develop a prototype of your application.

5. Test your application: Ensure that the application functions as intended. Involve your friends and family in the testing process and ask for their feedback.

6. Continually evolve your application: Based on the feedback received, make necessary modifications. Always stay updated with the latest technology trends to keep your application relevant and competitive.

Best of luck on your journey!

Bryce’s Answer

I find the best way to create an idea is to identify a problem. In this context, a problem could be a want, a need, or an efficiency. This problem could simple or complex and require an invention, making an existing invention more efficient, or adding new functionality to an existing invention. One method to find a problem is to write down all your hobbies, interests, and any issues you see in day-to-day life.
For example, if my hobby is snow skiing, is there an app that can help me find the least busy ski hill near me?
If learning guitar is one of my interests, is there an application to help me learn guitar? Does that application fit my learning style? Is that application efficient for me to learn guitar?
My issue could be as simple as consistently forgetting to turn the lights off when you leave the house; is there an app that uses my phone to turn off the lights when the phone is a certain distance from my house?
Once you have found the problem, it’s time to research. I’ll use the first example, snow skiing as a hobby.
What apps are currently available? Do these apps provide the information needed? How user friendly are current applications? What works well, what could be improved upon? Will this app be a social or non-social? Do you want skiers from the locations providing feedback? Will the application use the ski hills estimated wait time? Do you want to use cameras at the ski hill with a program that can calculate number of skiers at each lift and estimate times?
Once you have the idea and completed your research, then it’s time to build. If you’ve never built and application or a project like this, the website https://www.instructables.com/ has a ton of projects that can provide experience and guidance from easy to difficult. Find one that has some relevance and give it a try. Those projects also provide some great tools that can be used at all levels, for example, many projects use code from Github rather than having to build functionality all by yourself.
Hopefully this can get you started, enjoy the journey!
