As we lean more on technology developing a mobile app will benefit your business. Mobile apps aren’t anything new. As long as smartphones have been popular, so have apps. And they have continued to grow in popularity – with now there seemingly being an app for everything.
From e-commerce stores developing apps for quick and easy shopping to grocery stores developing one for coupons and rewards to healthcare companies developing one so their patients can access their medical profile. Is there really anything you couldn’t use an app for at some point?
But, developing an app isn’t necessarily the simplest task, so it is best to start by determining what the benefits would be for your business:
It is great for customer engagement.
Business-to-business communication is important, but the reverse type of communication is just as important to maintain customer loyalty.
Customers love to feel heard and to have their problems resolved in a timely manner. An app can be a great avenue for quickly communicating with your customers – therefore increasing engagement and increasing satisfaction.
Mobile Apps allow you to provide more value to your customers.
Customers are always looking for more bang for their buck. What’s in it for them?
With a mobile app, you can do things like providing your customer with a loyalty rewards program. And this is really two-fold – it makes them feel like they are getting a deal or getting something out of you in return for their purchase, but it also gets them in your store again and again.
Additionally, tracking their behaviors – like their rewards and purchases – via the app can give you great insight for other marketing efforts.
It allows you an avenue for direct communication and geo-targeting marketing.
Consumers are surrounded by options these days. It is really just a matter of who gets them first, who impresses them the most, and who can keep their attention. It is a race – and a constant battle – to demonstrate why you are the best time and time again.
With a mobile app, you can immediately offer your consumer a promotional offer or inform them of a new launch or service, and you can even do so based on their location.
In addition to keeping yourself top-of-mind, this is a great way to influence them in the midst of those quick decisions. Maybe they are looking for dinner, drive near your store and a coupon pops up – they might have just made their decision based on that.
An App can improve your business’s visibility.
Everybody just wants to be seen – it is the constant, “Me! Me! Me!”
People are searching for things on their phones now more than ever. And not only do they prefer to do it on their phone, but they prefer to do it on an app on their phone. If someone has your app on their phone, you are immediately more visible to them.
This app will be tailored to their operating system and is ideally even more user-friendly than your website.
