Customer happiness is priceless… and it can be cheap

Good design and good UI isn’t just nice, it’s good business. Good UI makes your customers happier, which means they’re more likely to use your stuff, and pay for your stuff, and talk about your stuff. And while happy, productive, chatty customers are something we always want—they’re even more valuable in a down economy.

So you’ve got an app that is on its way to awesomeness. It just needs a little tender lovin’ care in the usability or design department to get there.

And you know how important UI can be to your business, buuut… your budget can’t take a big project right now.

App Therapy Prix Fixe

Never fear, App Therapy (and me, Amy Hoy) is here to help.

For a flat rate, you can choose either:

  • The Inspector (think Sherlock or Columbo, not Clouseau). In which we explore and analyze your entire application[1] and deliver to you a fancy report including a written analysis (including callouts and sketches) and suggestions for improvement. Topics considered include application structure, flow, individual screens’ usability and layout, insights about targeted users, and aesthetics (aka “the pretty”).

Put simply: I will explore every nook and cranny of your app, and analyze every area from the overall application structure and assumptions, to the positioning in the market, to the design, layout, & behavior of specific elements, and aesthetic direction, making suggestions all the while.

At the end, you’ll get a fancy-pancy report running between 20 and 30 pages, including lots of analysis and many suggestions, marked-up screenshots and a few custom new wireframes just for you.

  • The Drive-By Design. In which we explore your application, and thence, with that knowledge, take any single, full page of your choosing and redesign it from the ground up to be more effective. In this case we deliver to you a fully-realized design, original design source files (PSDs) and a written explanation of our recommendations for that page and its situation in the entire application.

Either package is ideal for smaller companies and startups, and anyone who is having a difficult time loosening the purse strings for hiring usability consultants for a long-term project.

And what can I do with this report/redesign?

What can you do with all that advice and insight, you ask? Well, whatever you please! It’s yours to do with what you wish. Implement changes & ideas yourself, or hire somebody else to help you out, or even hire me, if you’re into it.

There’s no further obligation. My reports and advice are yours. I will happily make ourselves available for further assistance (availability permitting), but you can implement my suggestions any way you want, and with whomever you want.

Faster than a locomotive powered by the hate of mediocre UI

Turnaround time on these babies is about 2 – 3 weeks. They take a lot of time, effort, and love, so I can do only a couple at a time.

That Price, which is Fixed

The price for either package is just $3,500 USD.

If you’d like further details and a sample report, drop us a line at [email protected] with your preferred method of contact and we’ll give you a prompt return call or email.
