Life Coaching App Cost Estimate

What is a life coaching app?

A life coaching application is a web or mobile application with two sets of users: coaches and clients. Coaches use the app to view profiles of clients, schedule appointments, and send messages to clients. Clients use the app to view profiles of coaches, request appointments with specific coaches, and communicate with their assigned coach via an inbox. The app may also include a dashboard that enables administrators to analyze the performance of all coaches and clients. Life coaching apps are similar to most other health and fitness apps, such as sleep tracking apps, calorie counter apps, diet apps, and exercise tracking apps. Headspace is one of the best-known life coaching apps. Examples of life coaching apps built with Crowdbotics:

What is the typical cost to build a life coaching app?

A life coaching app usually costs about $37,500 to build. However, the total cost can be as low as $25,000 or as high as $50,000. A life coaching app with a low number of features (also known as a minimum viable product, or MVP) will be more affordable than an app that includes all intended functionality. For example, here are some previous life coaching app price quotes from Crowdbotics:

How long does it take to build a life coaching app?

A life coaching app usually takes 550 hours to build. However, a life coaching app can be built in as few as 67 hours, or in as many as 1333 hours. The exact timeline mostly depends on how complicated your specific app is. As a general rule, it will take longer if you require highly custom designs, niche features, complex logic, or non-standard release platforms. For example, some previous life coaching apps build with Crowdbotics received the following hourly estimates:

How to successfully grow your life coaching application

A life coaching app can grow by making it easy for users to continue their coaching experience online at any time. Life coaching apps are built specifically for users who want to complete a full program in their own time, and these apps often provide additional content that can’t all fit into one session. By keeping the user engaged over a longer period of time, the life coaching app provides a higher level of value and creates a higher-quality customer base for future business development.

Risks and challenges of building a life coaching application

A life coaching app faces two main risk categories: user safety and legal compliance. Since users are often sharing deeply personal information about their lives, it is important to provide users with mechanisms to block or report abusive users. The app should also be built to ensure that sensitive personal information is not publicly available. Additionally, the app should comply with all applicable laws related to protecting user privacy and security.
