Who We Are

We are the nation's hottest startup mobile app development and marketing agency. We've helped launch a variety of mobile apps from their inception. We can attribute a lot of our success to our affordable pricing and agile process, which has made us capable of attributing more of the clients budget to growth. We are always willing to adapt to the market, and are always at the forfront of the mobile app scene.

Why You Need Us

The vast majority of good apps never get to see their time in the spotlight. This is due to poor/lack of marketing. Founders often believe that a good product is enough to be noticed on its own, this is no longer the case in today's market.

How We Make It

Discovery

  • What is the purpose of the app?
  • What do people get from it?
  • Main Competitors?
  • Who are our target users?
  • How is it going to get monetized?

Design
  • Create Wireframes
  • Design the look and feel of the app
  • Develop Prototypes
  • User Test
  • Build Brand Development

Development

  • Agile development
  • iOS, Android, ReactNative
  • React.js, Ruby On Rails
  • Node.js, Java, .NET

How We Market It


The SEM Nexus marketing process uses a combination of ASO, App Store & Play Store ads, social media ads and influencers to acquire users, followed by in-app analytics to retain active and paying users. We follow our checklist rigourously:

  • ASO
  • Social Influencers
  • Digital Ads
  • App Analytics
  • VC Prep

As you can see, virality requires capital. Our initial proof of concept campaign will aid you in proving that your app can be a success. Then we can connect you to our VC partners for funding.

    I initially hired them to help me get the cost-per-install down, and they’re effective at doing that — they were able to reach the CPI to around $0.71, which is solid. Also, the app downloads have increased since I started working with them.

    Mike, Sergio, and the team delivered the app store optimizations very timely and professionally. They also delivered the strategy for the advertising in a timely and organized manner. One thing we loved about this company at the time was their size and willingness to move as fast as we do as a startup type of environment.

    They were incredibly helpful in selecting the right channels and pivoting when needed. We had some challenges due to the new iOS14 release but they were ready and able to navigatethem. Overall, we experience a steady improvement in CPI throughout the project and received good recommendations to improve the conversion and retention. When something did not work, they tried something different or new. They are 100% data-driven and feel like an extension of your team.

    SEM Nexus has a dedicated and responsive approach despite its high volume of clients. Their team’s attentiveness and guidance have done a lot for my company — we’ve practically started from nothing, and they’ve taken it upon themselves to bring me successful results. What stands out about their team is their enthusiasm and genuine interest in seeing me succeed.

    Their business model supported ours which was great. They knew exactly what we were hoping to accomplish within our budget, and we walked away with some solid traction and KPIs for our proof of concept campaign. The team, and Sergio and Mike, in particular, were great. We generated 3K measurable installs with a CPI of < $1.50. Also, 99% of users who view a trip start it.

    Their workflow was seamless and highly effective. On a personal level, just a pleasure to work with these folks. We learned how to run strong campaigns and were able to drive down our CPI from $20 to $2. This in turn helped us create an initial user community to validate key KPIs (retention, stickiness, etc.)
