What was the scope of their involvement?
It's on Android and iOS, both available for download. First, we did a private beta test, then we launched it. The only issue is we don't have the budget to market it on the scale we'd like to; therefore, we only have a couple of hundred people signing up. We have 30 this month, and maybe 100 the next month, all of them organic, all from social media, and not a dollar has been invested into marketing.
We have the organic traffic, but we need enough money to invest into the platform where we have basically a revolving door model, where people are always coming in.
Vitaly created the Checker, which is the whole background check platform with another service.
How did you come to work with App Development Shop?
At first, he fixed our existing minimum viable product. Then, he told us that if we wanted him to do the rest, we had to pay him, and so we started paying him installments to take care of his team. He did the iOS, the first update on Android, first update on iOS, the second update on iOS, second update on Android, and so forth. He kept doing it to a point where we were able to do a proof of concept.
How much have you invested with App Development Shop?
We have invested $50,000 to $60,000. We spent $20,000 on a video for the website.
What is the status of this engagement?
I'm still continuing to work with them.
