We started working on the product idea in March 2018 and launched it in May 2018. The overall journey has been very exciting for our team since this is our first product. Our team had worked on many projects before but never owned one from start to finish in a short period of time. We learned a lot during this period, especially about how to stay focused, prioritize features, and work together as a team towards one goal with limited resources.**
The most exciting part was when we saw people test the product for the first time at Microsoft Build 2018 and see their reactions. I’ll share our experience of building this product below:

But how do you get started? How do you know if the agency is the right fit for your idea? Here are some guidelines for what to look for when choosing the right agency for your app idea.
Look at their work
Some agencies have a diverse portfolio with many different types of clients and apps. Others specialize in certain verticals or industries, like ecommerce, social networking, healthcare, gaming or fintech. Some have experience with apps that require a high level of design while others focus on MVP apps that can be built quickly and efficiently. You should look at their portfolio and see if they are a good fit for your needs.
You can also ask them about their process and how they approach each client’s needs differently. It’s important to ensure that you both communicate well with each other and can work together seamlessly throughout the entire process.
When you are looking for an agency, it is tempting to look at all the things they say they can do. The thing to look at is their work.

After all, there are no shortage of different agencies out there, and they all claim that they’re the best. How do you know which one really is?
The easiest way to choose an agency is by looking at their portfolio. A good agency will have a strong portfolio filled with websites that look amazing and work even better. And if you like the websites they’ve already built for other clients, then chances are good that you’ll love the one they build for you too.
In today’s blog post I will go through the key points that make up a great website project portfolio and how to evaluate them so that your agency search is as smooth as possible.
