Communicating with the Right People
If you are going to be pitching your idea to these iPhone application developers, you should have your project together. Create a project proposal with very clear structural ideas. Make sure you know every aspect of this application, what features you will want, any graphical information that should be included, as well as who is going to buy it.
It is also good to include a flow chart for the application. You may need a graphic designer on the project as well, because visuals will not usually be the programmer's responsibility. To do this, you may want to try job-posting sites to find a graphic designer to come on board.
With both the programmer and the graphic designer you write out a contract to go with your proposal telling them exactly how much money they will receive from sales, which should be written in terms of percentage. It would be best to keep this divided equally in three parts.
Before you begin contacting people you may want to give yourself a company name and provide professional references for credibility. This is done no matter what type of freelance project you are doing. References do not have to be software related, but need to prove you are a professional person who can be trusted.
