Interview With Ian Sefferman

If you are an app marketer and need to boost their rank in app store, here is a good news for you! Now you can optimize your app position within the search result in the app store just in few easy steps with MobileDevHQ. Their CEO, Ian Sefferman described what is MobileDevHQ and how they think about the future trends of mobile app on the interview below.

Interviewer: How would you describe MobileDevHQ?

Ian Sefferman: MobileDevHQ is an app store optimization (SEO for apps) platform. We help app marketers rank highly in app store search, providing lower cost downloads and increased quality of users.

Interviewer: How did you come up with the concept of MobileDevHQ?

Ian Sefferman: MobileDevHQ came about after 3 years of working in the mobile space, seeing app marketers have trouble acquire quality users from organic channels.

Interviewer: How long did it take for you and your team to build MobileDevHQ?

Ian Sefferman: The original version of MobileDevHQ took just 2 weeks to build, because it was a true pivot of AppStoreHQ, our first stab at consumer app discovery. Of course, we believe even today we’ve only solved 1% of the problem for app marketers, and there’s far more work left than there is completed.

Interviewer: How you differentiate yourself from the competitors? Do you have any competition at all?

Ian Sefferman: We focus on the enterprise app marketer, which is different from our competitors. We ensure the enterprise app marketer has all the data they need to make decisions, help their team, and acquire great users.

Interviewer: How do you think the future trends of Mobile Apps?

Ian Sefferman: As Jeff Bezos would say, “it’s still Day 1.” There’s huge growth to come in the world of mobile. I personally believe we haven’t touched the potential as it pertains to the enterprise, productivity, or the intersection of digital and physical.

Interviewer: In the last couple of weeks, we heard a lot of news about Nokia, Microsoft and Blackberry. How do you think these current changes will affect Mobile Apps Industry?

Ian Sefferman: Currently, mobile is a two horse race: iOS and Android. However, Microsoft is willing to invest in the very long term and has deep pockets with which to do so. I’m hopeful that other platforms will make inroads, but it is absolutely a tough assignment to do.

Interviewer: What is your future plan for MobileDevHQ?

Ian Sefferman: We believe there’s a big business to be built helping app marketers with organic app marketing and we think we’re well positioned to be that business. We want to focus on helping app marketers get the data they need on their market and their competitors, and help them take action in the best way to grow their business.

Interviewer: You hired us to produce a video for MobileDevHQ, do you think our video help you get more conversions?

Ian Sefferman: While we didn’t see any immediate lift in conversions due to the video, we believe the added character plus brand alignment gives us a long-term net positive from the video.

Interviewer: Thanks for your answers, and I really appreciate your willingness to spend time to have this interview with us.

Folks, here is an explainer video (proudly made by Breadnbeyond) that will help you understand more about MobileDevHQ:

  • Working with the team at BreadnBeyond was a fantastic experience and achieved exactly what I was hoping for.. converting more visitors to trial users by explaining the product quickly and simply. They are super organised to work with, making it easy for someone who has not done this type of thing before, and provided updates at each step of the process.The final video was brilliant, exceeding my expectations. I’ll definitely be using the team again when it comes time to create explainers for my other products. All the best, and thanks again!

  • Bread n Beyond blew away all expectations, not only is their work phenomenal but their customer service and attentiveness should be a standard for every business.

  • Working with Andre and the BnB team really was a great experience. Communication is professional and proactive, their design and animation skills are very high standard. Our end product turned out to be FANTASTIC and totally delivered within schedule. I'm sure we'll work together again on a short term. Thanks guys!

  • We'd like to thank Bread n Beyond! Wonderful team to work with. Listened carefully to our concerns and helped us fine tune all of details. Great work.

    Andrea Bogar
  • Breadnbeyond understood's brand identity straight away. The video they made for us - at incredibly short notice - is perfect. Previously we'd held off doing video, thinking it was too expensive or too time consuming to produce. Breadnbeyond proved me wrong - I wished we'd spoken to them months ago!

  • I would like to say that it has been a great pleasure working with you! The result of this project is outstanding and I am impressed with the quality of your work and your professionalism. I would unreservedly recommend you in the future to anyone looking to produce a similar explainer video.

  • Extremely satisfied with the service quality produced by Andre & his team. I am one of the people who wont get satisfied in first mockup. If you work with Bread n' Beyond, you will see that they are always ready to go an extra mile. I came with a limited budget to BreadnBeyond for a small logo design project - but in the end I found so much scope for expansion with them that I couldn't help but re-hire them to produce a higher quality output, each time. The designs are impeccable & they pay very minute attention to the details. This is the most important thing for me & I am glad that I found this team. Looking to re-hire them for all the future design projects. A++++ Service, highly recommended!

  • We believe the added character plus brand alignment gives us a long-term net positive from the video.

    Ian Sefferman, MobileDevHQ
  • Bread N' Beyond seemed to have a holistic solution for video creation (good animators, voice-over talent, and customer testimonials) that made me trust in the company's ability to deliver a professional solution. The value for the cost was really much greater than any company I spoke with during my initial search.

    Daniel Mason
  • Very good provider. I am already using again on another project. Highly recommended to anyone. Cooperates well and works through any problems that arise.
