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.

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

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

Development

  • Agile development

  • 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.

    The client has been waiting for over 4 months without receiving any deliverables. Even after providing feedback, SEM Nexus requested additional funds. The client is now dealing with its 3rd representative from the company, which missed the promised metrics and hasn't fulfilled half of its commitments. The client plans to reach out to its credit card company to seek a refund. (Verified via email)
