Part Two – The Supplier

“The best executive is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it.”

Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States

So now you have your perfect app idea wrapped up and ready to go, how do you get things moving? Well unless you will be coding the app yourself, then you need to find your perfect supplier. For some people, this can seem like one of the more daunting parts of the project, but it needn’t be.

Thanks to the web and so-called ‘geographic arbitrage’ you may be able to get your app built much cheaper than you think. Particularly if you are based in the ‘developed’ world and are looking to source from countries where labour costs are cheaper.

Of course it depends what you are after. Many websites have appeared in the last few years to serve this market, but there’s a couple in particular I recommend that I’ll take you through in more detail.

Otherwise I recommend checking in on companion website reguarly, where any recommend suppliers that are catching the eye will be mentioned.

Although it’s not what this guide is intended for, if you’re interested in doing some or all of the coding yourself (or within your company) there are some alternative options listed at the end of Part Two (the rest is up to you!).
