Why You Need a Mobile App for Your Business

mobile appMobile apps – Are they only for large corporations like Chase Bank and Amazon? No. Mobile apps are effective for any business. More small business are following the mobile app trend today. They know that the best mobile strategies involve more than just a mobile version of their company website.

Here are the top reasons why you should invest in building a mobile app for your business:

  1. Loyalty – In today’s world, we are bombarded by advertising. From social media and websites to flashing billboards and magazine ads, we can lose our branding impact on customers quickly. We have to go back to an authentic connection with potential customers. This is the only way to truly make them loyal to your brand. A mobile app doesn’t have the power to save your business, but it is a great way to keep your name a fingertip away from your customers.
  2. Customer Engagement – Regardless of what you’re selling, customers need the ability to easily reach you. Building a mobile app with a message or help desk feature can really aid in customer engagement. Most of your customers would probably prefer to have the ability to communicate with you through messaging than picking up the phone and calling.
  3. Stay Ahead of the Competition – Many small business are still behind the times in terms of mobile-friendly internet marketing. Stand out and stay ahead of your competition by being the first to offer a mobile app.
  4. Offer Value – Give your customers something to gain from using your mobile app. Trade out that old point collection card for a collection system on your mobile app. This modern day reward system increases return customers and downloads.
  5. Stay Visible – The average American spends more than 2 hours everyday on his or her phone. Even though a few apps account for most of this total useage, each user has to unlock and scroll through other apps to get to what they are doing. Being on a customers screen can do a lot in branding your business. Our minds record every image we see throughout the day. Why wouldn’t you want your customers to be reminded of your brand every time they go on their phone?
