You should probably get an app for that.

Are you looking to get your business noticed, or set it apart from the competition? Taking simple steps such as investing in app development services can make a world of difference for your business when it comes to reaching those sales goals.

More than likely you’ve heard this phrase before, “there’s an app for that.” Despite it being a running gag on the internet, it’s also a trademark phrase of Apple as of 2010. While it has provided countless laughs, the phrase does hold some truth to it. In 2017, there was over 2.2 million apps within the iOS store alone, and over 3 million within the Google Play store. Despite these staggering statistics, under 10% of apps belong to businesses. 

One of the main reasons businesses are venturing into this market is the advantages it gives to the consumer and the business itself. One the main advantages of apps is they are a visual reminder of your brand or business. Through methods such as push notifications, your customer will never miss out on special sales or promotions. After all, an average American is estimated to spend a minimum of two hours a day on their mobile device.

Apps are also able to build loyalty if used correctly. For example, an app can easily make carrying that cumbersome loyalty card a thing of the past. Digitizing incentive-based programs for customers can increase your chances of repeat visits, while cutting down the cost to produce membership cards. These repeat visits translate into increased retention rates. Customer retention rates can decide whether a business will fail or succeed. According to Frederick Reichheld of Bain & Company, increasing customer retention rates by 5% results in an increase of profits between 25% to 90%.

However, one of the main advantages of apps is the convenience it offers the user. According to GO-Globe, 72% of consumers believe that apps can offer an easier shopping experience. This might seem a bit shocking since the percentage of retail apps are relatively low, however, it’s estimated that the average smartphone user has 4 shopping apps on their phone. One reason for this is that apps allow users to speed up their shopping experience. Apps can save each user’s settings, which drastically cuts down on time spent shopping. User settings are able to offer a more personal experience as well.  Countless businesses use this tactic, from Taco Bell to Amazon, businesses can provide recommendations based on their customer’s history, or offer new products based on what other consumers have bought.

According to GO-Globe 46% of consumers are more likely to choose to shop via mobile apps rather than shopping online. Apps allow consumers to make a more personal connection and are always a finger touch away. With advertisements everywhere you look, it’s hard to have that strong connection with our consumer base that we desire.

Investing in app services can make a huge difference in your customer’s life, as well as the life of your business. The amount of businesses who currently use apps is relatively low. Their loss is your potential gain. Make sure your business stands out from the crowd by investing in app development services at MyBasicLLC.

App Development: Making an App a Snap

In our day and age there is an app for everything. From calling a cab, to making an appointment at the salon, to tracking your caloric intake– there’s an app for that. Why shouldn’t there be? Mobile applications put the world at our fingertips. They offer a form of interactiveness that a website can’t match, while also providing heightened mobility. With technology ever advancing, apps are capable of such a wide variety of feats that we can guarantee no matter what field you are in, your business could benefit from having a mobile app.website-redesign-mybasicllc

 

Apps are a great way to reinforce your brand. Imagine your customers scrolling past your logo every time they open their phones! They can hardly forget about you when you are always in the palm of their hand. That makes you, well, handy! Plus, your customers are way less likely to try out one of your competitors when you are always just a tap away. They will love the convenience that an app provides.

And if an app is convenient for your customers, it is doubly so for you! Need to get word out about a new promotion? Send out an alert! That slight buzz of their phones will have your customers reaching to see what’s new– instantly. Even if you already have a sizeable email list for just that purpose, you still risk sitting unopened in inboxes, or worse landing straight in the spam box. With mobile apps you become front screen news everytime! Take advantage of this newfound line of communication to stay in contact with your clients no matter where life takes you.

One of the most obvious benefits of an app is increased sales. If you have goods to sell you can hardly afford not to have an app. If you have us design an app for you you are ensuring that your business is available to your customers whenever, and wherever the urge to shop hits them. Whether you rock the brick and mortar or sale primarily online, as your mobile app developer we can give you access to new pools of potential customers. Don’t risk losing clients to your tech-savvy competitors, let us design an app that will give you the edge you need to stay at the top of your game.

Another reason to consider hiring an app developer is the increased visibility. Owning a business is all about visibility. From billboards, to commercials, to websites and social media, getting people’s attention is essential. Making yourself available on every platform allows you to maximize your outreach. That’s just good marketing. With smartphone sales increasing by the year, the reasons to consider a mobile app are steadily rising.
