Based on our initial assessment, developing and deploying an app like this typically takes around 20-25 weeks.

These days, most messaging platforms have multimedia, voice calling, and video calling features. The other must-have features include location sharing, contact sharing, notifications, and real-time messaging.

You can monetize an app by including in-app purchase, in-app advertisement, and p2p payments. But knowing the target audience and carrying out thorough market research is a must to reap the benefits of adding these features.

Regardless of the monetization model you use to monetize your app, a lot depends on how often users would launch and use it. By using a visually pleasing design with user-friendliness, you can inspire users to use your app time and again. This will boost your earnings through the concept of monetization.

The most important aspect that we consider while developing such apps are:

Security: Since the information exchanged between users might include confidential data, the chat app needs to be designed with high-security systems to ensure the information is not compromised.

Preventing the data from being leaked to the public is the key motive and end-to-end encryption method would allow concerned users to access the information in a safe way.

Scalability: The chat app should be built in such a way that the data exchanged across the cloud can be supported by the device, which can scale up or down according to changing requirements.

Storage: A good database solution for the app, as it should be able to store all of the growing members' usernames and passwords as well as the information exchanged between them. For this, you need to choose a reliable provider of database solutions that will provide you with the perfect database that is intuitive and easy to use to react easily and quickly to all admin queries.

Annual Maintenance Contract services would range between USD 2,000 to 3,000.

Primarily, there are four monetisation techniques that are relevant to the anonymous chat app concept.

  • Subscription
  • Ads
  • Paid add-on features
  • Paid Featured posting for group messages
  • Custom Avatars
  • Referral bonus
  • Leaderboards for number of group conversations initiated
  • Option to create a public group or foraa, which anyone can join.
