Thanks for scheduling a consultation. You’re one step closer to having your app developed!

Below you’ll find an overview of how to prepare for our meeting, and answers to common questions we hear.


Bubble’s network of developers can build apps faster than traditional web developers and for a fraction of the cost. During your consultation, we’ll help you translate your app idea into a product development roadmap, filled with product features, API integrations, and a design template. Once we confirm the details of your app, we’ll provide a quote and collaborate with you and your developer to get started on the project.

Getting Started

To speed up the development process, we’re going to help you choose a design that ideally has all the features you need within our Bubble template marketplace. Our developer partners will then customize the template based on your feedback. If we’re unable to find a design that satisfies your requirements, we’ll match you with a developer or agency that can design your app from scratch.

Before the consultation

  • The link to the Google Meet video call can be found in your calendar event details or your email inbox.
  • The call will be 15-minutes long with the option to extend based on availability for both parties
  • Please be in a room where your voice is clearly audible with limited background noise
  • Feel free to search through the Bubble template marketplace for a design you’re happy with. We may not use it for development but it’ll serve as a design reference, making it easier for us to address any questions or concerns.

Be prepared to answer

  • What are the features that are most important to you for your app to work?

  • Do you already have any assets such as user stories, logos, colors, or fonts?
  • Is there a launch date or deadline you’d like us to know?
  • What’s your estimated budget?
