Have you considered creating a mobile app for your business? A few years ago mobile apps were considered something that only large companies used. They spent thousands of dollars developing app and hoping to connect with their clients through their mobile devices. The cost of developing your own app is now as low as $250.
Depending on your type of business, having a mobile app can increase sales as well as help you build loyalty with your client and provide ease of use in doing business with your company. Here are three reasons you should consider creating a mobile app for your business:
#1 – Mobile Apps Increase Convenience and Loyalty
Having a mobile-friendly website is a good start if you simply want to provide information about your company to prospective clients. An app that allow customers for update their account information, place new orders, look at past orders and obtain additional information about your company provides more convenience.
A client who has downloaded your app and can quickly access your company builds loyalty since the information they seek is literally a finger tap away. This discourages the client from going to a search engine and searching for similar companies and seeing what your competitors offer. They are more likely to just use the vendor they know and trust and have ready access to.
#2 – Apps Allow Users the Ability to Place Orders On the Go
With the convenience of your mobile app in their hand, clients can place orders from wherever they happen to be. If you have multiple locations, an app can direct the client to a physical location nearest to their physical location at the time they open the app. You also have the ability to push information into the hands of your clients through the app and use the app for marketing purposes to reach busy people.
#3 – Mobile Apps Increase Bottom Line Profit
Because mobile apps offer you the ability to use videos you have the opportunity to produce your own video commercials that are put right into the hands of someone already interested in your product or service. You can promote sales, product, special rates and much more.
Having the ability to conduct surveys to find out what your clients really want can help you fine tune your sales efforts to meet the needs specified by your clients while interacting with them and keeping your company on the top of their mind.
The strong functionality of a mobile app combined with the low cost to create and maintain and app produces a win-win for you and the client.
