Benefits of creating a mobile app for your business

The keen observer will have noticed businesses investing in mobile apps. From healthcare to ecommerce, this trend has quickly integrated itself through virtually every industry. This is because these business apps provide real value to brands by helping them establish effective communication with existing and potential customers.

 

However, before you dive in, it is important to consider whether this opportunity is right for your business. By understanding the benefits a mobile business app can provide, you can shortlist the applications suitable for your company.

We have written a list of the top 7 reasons why if your business doesn’t already have a mobile app… it really should:

Marketing through geo-targeting and direct communication.

It is no secret a mobile app is a quick and effective way to reach out to your customers when you have an announcement e.g. launching a new product or service. This allows promotions to be available at a customer’s finger tips with a simple push notification.

You can gain valuable demographic information from understanding which customers interact with your service the most.

Customer loyalty through brand recognition.

Engaging customers helps build loyalty to your brand. A mobile business app provides a gateway to speed up this process, as it reinforces the connection between customer and brand. In turn, only strengthening the relationship.

Through push notifications and reminders, the brand is at the forefront of a customer’s awareness even if they don’t consciously realise it. In turn, your brand will be more recognisable to customers as they’re more familiar with your app and brand. This in turn encourages a potential customer to shop with you opposed to your competitors.

Your app will secure the sale.

In our mobile-first society it is significantly more likely that your customer will search for your product or services on their smartphone as opposed to a computer.

Therefore, if your customer has an interactive application platform, they are more likely to make the purchase there and then rather than wait until they get home to surf on a computer. The ease of your customers’ journey will give them the final nudge to buy.

Your customer engagement tool.

Whilst traditional B2C marketing techniques are important… What is more important is having an effective communication system to maintain customer loyalty. When complaints or concerns are handled quickly and efficiently this will significantly increase the likelihood a customer would use your company again, building brand loyalty.

With this in mind, apps help develop that initial relationship. Then, with the ease and accessibility of your products and service, this will result in a sale. The easier the journey is for the customer the more likely they are to buy.

Stand out from your competitors.

This cannot be emphasized highly enough. Apps are very up and coming, but they are still uncommon in many industries. The attention of your customers will be laser focused on your brand if you can offer them something your competitors can’t, such as an app.

You have a wide potential audience to capture on this marketing channel, so get there before your competitors! By the time other similar businesses catch on it is likely you will have ensured your customers loyalty through effectively managed customer engagement.

 

Increased brand awareness and recognition.

With traditional marketing, whether it’s online or in print, it is difficult to find something where you will always stand out. You could try newspaper ads, social media marketing etc, but the key here is being unique.

These traditional methods of marketing are most effective when combined with a mobile app that has a high rate of customer engagement, in turn boosting your brand loyalty.

 

Visibility is improved.

The shift in the way potential customers look for products and services has shifted in our technology-first day and age. Whilst word of mouth used to be sufficient, now a user’s journey typically begins on their smartphone.

If developed correctly, mobile apps grab the attention of the user even if they are only partially paying attention. Therefore, mobile apps ensure this shift is beneficial for your brand awareness and visibility.
