Pros & Cons

Pros Description
Flexibility You can put as much time into the business as you'd like. If you like the work and have some initial experience, you can start small and manage all aspects of the business on your own.
Ability to start your business from home It's not necessary to have a physical storefront or office space to get your business started. You can do everything from the comfort of your own home, at least in the beginning!
Rewarding work Starting a mobile survey app can be really rewarding work. After all, you are solving an immediate issue for your customer and you're working on something you truly care about.
Scalable With businesses and processes changing daily, there will always be demand for new features, products and services for your business. Additionally, there are several different business models and pricing tiers you can implement that will allow you to reach all types of customers.
Traffic to your website A mobile survey app gives people a reason to visit your website and to keep coming back to you!
Meaningful business connections You never know who you will meet as a mobile survey app. This could be the start of an incredible business opportunity!
Cons Description
Motivation of employees If you plan to have a sales/content team on board, finding creative ways to motivate them can be a challenge. It's important that you're able to offer great incentives and a good work environment for your employees.
Stressful work This line of work can be stressful for both you and your clients. This type of transaction is a significant financial decision for your client, so expectations are very high for you. Although this career path can be very rewarding, it also comes with its challenges and stressful moments.
High overhead expenses With starting a mobile survey app, there are overhead expenses that come with selling a physical product. You will want to make sure you strategically budget for these overhead costs. We discuss this more in the startup costs section below.
Time commitment With starting a mobile survey app, all responsibilities and decisions are in your hands. Although this is not necessarily a negative thing, work life can take over at times. This can place a strain on friends and family and add to the pressure of launching a new business.
Difficult to build trust with your customer With starting a mobile survey app, there can be minimal face-to-face interaction, which means it can be a lot more difficult to establish trust with your customers. You'll need to go the extra mile with your customer to grab their attention and business.
Complex development process. The development process for a mobile survey app can be quite complex, which may cause delays and challenges when launching and growing your product.

    Affiliate Program

    Affiliate marketing is a great way to bring in a new revenue stream, especially when you don't sell products or services.

    Simply put, an affiliate program is an agreement where a business pays another business or influencer ("the affiliate") a commission for sending traffic and/or sales their way.

    The affiliate typically gets a unique link where clicks and conversions can be tracked.

    Word of mouth

    Word of mouth is when a consumers reflects their interest in a company’s product or service in their daily dialogues.

    Therefore, word of mouth advertising is essentially a free advertising triggered by the customers experience.

    According to Nielsen, 92% of people trust recommendations from friends and family.

    Partnerships

    A partnership is a formal agreement between two or more entities to oversee business operations and share profits and liabilities.

    Creating strategic partnerships with an existing business can be a huge win for a startup.

    This is considering that a partnership creates a new slate of future options for your startup.

    On the other side, pursuit of partnerships could suck up a ton of time, and bunch of resources, and fail to materialize.

    Therefore, entrepreneurs need to do proper research and evaluate the possibilities of achieving success through partnerships.
