Mobile Apps

Today there is an increasing number of mobile apps available and whilst are perhaps turning a whole generation into being dependent on social media, others can be very beneficial to small businesses as well as in some instances, large businesses. For this reason mobile app development is becoming increasingly in higher demand and that demand is being met by new app developers becoming available.

Some of the ways or reasons mobile apps can be beneficial to small businesses are:

Better Visibility – Research has shown that most people today spend as long as 2 hours each and every day on their mobile devices and so if you want your business to be seen, you need to be able to be on those mobile devices. Allowing current or potential customers to have your app will ensure that they are at least reminded of your existence several times a day. Even if they are currently thinking of anything g to do with your business, at least your app, even just the logo, will be etched in their mind for when they may have a need for your services.

Direct Marketing Channel – By having an app you can more easily inform your customers of the latest products available and of any ‘specials’ that may be available. Without an app, you would have to spend time deciding which media your clients use so you can ensure they get your messages.

Customer Appreciation – Instead of offering other types of incentive which do not necessarily improve customer relations, run a loyalty program through your app. This will not just encourage customers to get the app but will also reward some of those that do.

Recognition – Brand recognition is very important in any advertising campaign and by having an app brand recognition is greatly improved. It is estimated that if someone sees a brand name 20 or more times, they are likely to at use it once.

Improve Customer Inter-Reaction – By your customers being able to contact you via your app, you know you will never miss any calls that could cost you money due to the customer going elsewhere, to someone that did answer their call.

Professionalism – By having your own you may well stand out from the competition due to you appearing more professional and up to date with the times.

Reach your Targets – Advertising campaigns can be expensive as more and more adverts appear all the time and yours may just get lost among all the others, rarely being seen by the people you want to see them. By having your app, you know who will see your promotions or advertisements and so be sure you are getting value for your money.

Regardless of where you live today, you can always find a mobile app developer online and there are now so many that you will be able to choose between them, allowing you to be able to c opt for one that best suits your particular requirements best. A little expense today can make huge profits tomorrow.
