If you’re like most people, you have a side hustle. You know, that thing you do to make some extra money on the side. But what if your side hustle could be your full-time job? Turns out, it can! All it takes is a little bit of creativity and some tech skills. Before you know it – you’ll turn your side hustle into a tech startup in no time!

Here are a few tips on how to turn your side hustle into a tech startup.

1. Don’t be afraid to start your own business – it’s easier than you think (here is a great resource!)
2. Use technology to help you get started – there are tons of online tools and resources available
3. Get creative with your marketing strategies and find ways to reach your target audience
4. Make sure you have a clear vision for your company and know where you want it to go
5. Believe in yourself and your ability to succeed – the only person who can hold you back is yourself
6. Be patient and don’t give up when things get tough – success doesn’t happen overnight

So you’ve got a killer side hustle and a great app idea and you want to turn it into the next big tech startup? We commend your ambition! The road from side hustle to tech startup is fraught with peril, but if anyone can make it, it’s you. Before you get started, though, there are a few things you need to know. First of all, don’t be fooled by the number of apps out there – just because an app exists doesn’t mean yours can’t make it. Secondly, remember that building a great product is only half the battle; you also need to market it well. Finally, always keep your users in mind when making decisions about your product.

If you’re like most creatives, you want your app to look and feel professional. But how can you be sure that it’s actually developed that way? Are you sure the app is developed professionally?

Here are a few tips to help ensure that your app is done right – from start to finish.

1. Hire a professional development team: A professional team can be hard to find. You can view a top list of companies through Clutch’s Top Ranking App Developers in Australia. Alternatively, websites like Upwork and Fiverr are proving reputable sources for finding professional app developers.
2. Have a clear vision and goal for your app: It is important to know exactly what you want. Going into development with half an idea will make it difficult to finish the project.
3. Make sure the team understands your vision: Once you have your team and your design, you need to make sure the team are aligned. Having the same vision is essential for success.
4. Be involved in the development process: Don’t take a back seat. Make sure you’re actively involved in the process from start to finish. Don’t be afraid to ask questions!
5. Test the app thoroughly before releasing it to the public: Have a group of friends or family who will happily test your application.
6. Don’t be afraid of feedback: Feedback is an important part of making an application better. If someone says something, take it onboard.

So, you’ve decided to take the plunge and develop your very own app? Congratulations! Developing an app can be a fun and rewarding experience, but it’s important to make sure that you do everything correctly from the start. That’s why we’ve put together this guide on how to be sure your app is developed professionally. By following these steps, you can avoid costly mistakes and ensure that your app is ready for primetime. And when you finish, don’t forget to enter it in the Australian App Awards – the competition will be fierce, but it could be worth your while!

Has this ever happened to you? You have a great idea for an app, but you’re not sure how to turn it into a working prototype? You think about it all the time, but don’t know where to start. Well, don’t worry – you’re not alone! This can be a common challenge for creatives and marketers. But with the right advice and tools, you can turn your application idea into a reality. In this blog post, we’ll share some tips on how to do just that. So read on and get started on your journey to turning your application idea into a working protoype.

Key steps in turning your app idea into a prototype:
1. Figure out what your app does and who it is for: Having a detailed planning phase can help you in the long run. Understanding exactly what your app can and can’t do is important.

2. Do some research to see if a similar app exists: If a similar application exists then use it as a case study. Do you have the opportunity to pivot?

3. Create a prototype and test it with potential users: The prototype is a costly step in the entire process. It will be your first major investment. You can try it yourself by combining tools such as Canva and Figma to produce beautiful screens that work as a prototype.

4. Draw up a business plan and get feedback from friends and family: Once the prototype is up and running get your friends and family to test it out. They can provide the best possible feedback.

5. Register your company and find an app developer: This step means you’re ready to go. You’re comfortable with your application idea and you’re ready to start the next step of your journey.
