    17 - The Ultimate Guide To Building Your App MVP

    17 - The Ultimate Guide To Building Your App MVP

    Uber, Spotify, Airbnb - three of the biggest mobile apps in the WORLD that have been downloaded by MILLIONS across the globe. What do they all have in common? They, like many other successful apps, started off as a Minimum Viable Product, or more commonly known as, the MVP. For those of you that don’t know, the MVP is the most basic version of your app just with the absolute features necessary, which you can build and release quickly into the marketplace.

    Why is this important to you? Put simply, it’s because building an MVP for your app is the key to building a fantastic product that people actually want. In fact, you could say it’s one of the biggest, defining factors between an app’s success or failure. Yes...it’s THAT important, and who better to tell you all about how valuable an MVP is to your app’s success than none other than an app founder.

    Have a listen and take notes. The MVP is paramount to your success in the game, and it’s a lot easier than you think.

    16 - Using Data To Achieve 3X App Growth feat. Envision Digital founder - Josh Lloyd

    16 - Using Data To Achieve 3X App Growth feat. Envision Digital founder - Josh Lloyd

    A lot of people and businesses for that matter want to go out and create their app and set aside x amount of money to go out and get it built. “Build it and they will come” - it’s something we’ve all heard a lot of the time right? Build that business and they will come. Build that app and they will come. And then they WAIT, for their future dream customers to come to them and download their app. This is great and everything, but unfortunately, they never “just” come. They may come in dribs and drabs, but the reality is that if you can't get a consistent stream of people downloading your app, how are you ever going to move forward with it?

    In today’s episode, we speak with Josh Lloyd, an expert app growth marketer who helps you to solve this exact problem. Josh is the founder of Envision Digital, a mobile app marketing agency that helps app founders, current or future, to use data to grow their app faster and easier than ever.

As always, take notes - it’s an important one!

    15 - How To Get Your App In Front Of The Right Eyes feat. Apptuitive founder - Carissa Lintao

    Everyone wants exposure with their apps. They want to get as many downloads as possible. But it’s not about that. You heard me - it’s not about getting the MOST downloads. It’s about getting the MOST downloads from the RIGHT people. That is how to succeed in the app game. But you must be wondering, how?

    Today I have got one hell of an episode for you because today we speak with Carissa Lintao, founder of the US-based agency, Apptuitive. For those of you who have listened to the show from the start, you’ll recognise the name because Carissa is the ONLY person we’ve ever invited BACK onto the show, and for good reason too.

    14 - Visualising Success From 2X Olympian & Run Gum CEO, Nick Symmonds

    14 - Visualising Success From 2X Olympian & Run Gum CEO, Nick Symmonds

    This is the most profound and life-changing episode I’ve ever recorded. Honestly, you won’t be the same person after listening to this.

    We’ve all heard it from time to time that if you want to be successful, you should be visualising your success. Picture yourself winning that business deal. See yourself building that app you’ve always wanted to build. Visualise yourself buying that house, driving that car, finding that dream partner - whatever it is, picture it. I know it sounds slightly out of the norm, but time and time again, I’ve found in my business journey that success leaves clues, and one of those clues is exactly that - visualise yourself succeeding, and you will succeed in whatever it is. Trust me, I’ve done it myself and it works. All. The. Time.

    And what better expert to have on the show today than none other than world-class athlete Nick Symmonds. He’s 7x NCAA champion, 6x USA outdoor champion at 800m, 2x World Champion Finalist, 2008 & 2012 Olympian. Nick talks about his success on the track and how he used to visualise his races beforehand, which led to him being one of the most successful U.S runners of all time. During his career, he launched his own business, RunGum which he is still the CEO of today that has become hugely successful. I can’t wait for you all to listen to today’s show because honestly, it’s the most profound show we’ve EVER recorded. Sit tight and listen intently - you won’t be the same person after listening to this.

    13 - Over 1 Billion Downloads And Selling To Apple For $400 Million, Meet Chris Barton - Founder of Shazam

    13 - Over 1 Billion Downloads And Selling To Apple For $400 Million, Meet Chris Barton - Founder of Shazam

    Ever found yourself out in public, whether it’s in a nightclub or supermarket, and you hear a song and think, “wow I need this song in my life!”? You could ask someone if they knew what the song was, or you could do what over 150 million people do monthly which is to use an app on their phone to recognise that song. That app name? You guessed it - Shazam. We’re kicking off season 2 of the App Startup Show with a bang! We’re speaking with none other than Chris Barton, the founder one of the most successful apps ever in the App Store- Shazam. So successful, that it has over 1 billion downloads to date and was sold to Apple for a reported fee of $400 million dollars.

    We talk about the early days of Shazam (by the way, did you know that Shazam was released long before the App Store was available?) the rollercoaster of a journey he took to get it to the level it is today and how you can apply some of those lessons to your app. I must point out that not only is Chris super successful, but you’ll also hear in the podcast just how much of an awesome guy he is. Take notes, and listen carefully to his journey because I’m in no doubt that a lot of you will be able to take a lot of lessons away from his story. 1 billion downloads...I’m sure you’ll learn something!

    12 - Going Beyond The Limit To Succeed feat. Nico Rosberg, 2016 Formula One (F1) World Champion

    12 - Going Beyond The Limit To Succeed feat. Nico Rosberg, 2016 Formula One (F1) World Champion

    Do you know what the difference is between someone who succeeds and someone who doesn’t? A success mindset. Tony Robbins once said that success is 80% psychology and 20% skill, and that goes for anyone wanting to start their own business, including those of you wanting to launch your own app. To succeed in this game, you’re going to need a success mindset. And what better guest to have on the show, teaching you all about having the mindset to succeed, than none other than 2016 Formula One World Champion, Nico Rosberg.

    It’s not often you get the opportunity to sit down and speak with a Formula One World Champion, but when you do, you tend to listen. After dedicating 25 years of his life to emulate his father’s success, Nico achieved his childhood dream of becoming a Formula One World Champion. We speak about his time in F1, how he utilised mindset strategies to beat one of the sport’s most successful drivers of all time in Lewis Hamilton, and also his journey now into entrepreneurship and how you can apply it all into starting your own app business.

    And if you haven’t already, I highly recommend you listen to his own podcast, “Beyond Victory With Nico Rosberg”, where he sits down with some of the world’s most successful individuals to discover the secrets to their success, what continues to drive them and to hear a few exclusive stories in the process. He has four podcasts coming out to finish the year, with guests including the legendary actor Michael Douglas, the CEO of Hugo Boss, Mark Langer, adventurer Ross Edgley who’s the first man to swim around Britain, and Lewis Howes from “The School of Greatness”. Be sure to subscribe and check it out. “Beyond Victory with Nico Rosberg”. For now, make yourself comfortable and have a listen to our episode with Nico. He’s open, honest and even reveals a few exclusives you won’t hear anywhere else.
