We would love to have a simple X days or weeks answer to this, but the truth is that every process is different. So let’s break it down.
A typical launch into a non-branded app can happen within 3 sessions. It is most often seen that these sessions are spread over 3 weeks, but you can also speed it up by doing multiple in a week if your schedule allows for this.
A branded app launch though is contingent upon not only completion of 3 calls but also app creation. Our team always strives to have apps out by mid-month. Apps are created within the first week of the month and then approved by their app stores and then the studio can go live.
Another reason a launch might move slower is if you request credit card data from your current software. This is a longer process which can take 2-3 weeks, so always consider this as well when planning your transition.
Something else to consider is the complexity of your setup or personal schedule. Some clients can kick off after 3, 45 minute sessions, and others have additional checkins between their calls because they did not have as much time per day or week to dedicate to getting their business model into the admin.
The truth is, you can go as fast or as slow as your schedule allows with added constraints of 1) a branded app creation timeline, and 2) any requested data being needed from your current software.
