Mobile Apps for business

Things to watch out for before developing a Mobile App for your business.

The world of mobile apps has made our lives easier. From helping us keep a count of the steps we take every day to reminding us about making on-time payments of our bills, there is a lot that these mobile apps can do. Therefore, such a business who fails to see the incredibility of these applications is at a huge loss for sure. In order to survive in this highly competitive era, every company needs to tap into the ever-growing market of mobile app users.

But how can your business do it? What are the core app elements that your business must consider even before the development of its app starts? Here’s what you need to know before you put your focus on developing a mobile app for your business.

Identify the target users
Begin by understanding who will be the target users of your app. What is it that you want to serve them? What are their requirements and how will you fulfill them? Remember that there is a huge demand for useful apps in the market, and to meet that demand, you must be clear about your app development goals and your audience.

Conduct thorough market research
From health to fashion, lifestyle, news, and utility, there are hundreds of genres and thousands of apps in each of these genres. So, what is it that can make your app stand out from the rest? Uniqueness. That’s the reason why you need to conduct an in-depth market research to know the gap that resides between your users and the needs that they have. Discover the pain points of your audience and how can you ease them with your app. Be alert, be different.

Choose the right platform
While iOS is the preferred choice for many businesses who wish to tap their mobile audience through apps, there are pros and cons of every platform. You must consider them and then take an informed decision about the mobile platform(s) you would want your business app to be present on. Understand that the support and the features that these platforms provide differ from each other. Make the right choice by weighing them all.

Create a budget
Mobile app development involves a considerable amount of money. It is, thus, essential to know what are you willing to spend. Set a maximum amount of money that you can spend on your mobile app and then allocate it appropriately among the different stages of app development. Make sure to stick to the budget so that you don’t end up paying more than what you can afford.

Test before launching
Before you launch the app in the market, test it systematically. Doing this will help you understand what are you giving to your users and whether or not it needs any improvement. Testing the waters before you spread a word about your business app is always a wise decision.

Market it
Once you have successfully tested the app and you feel that it is ready to be launched, don’t forget to create a buzz about it in the market. Overlooking this crucial point may make it difficult for your app to reach the masses. Thus, have a solid marketing strategy ready well in advance. While word of mouth is a great way to market your app, you should also use social media channels to promote it and try some creative calls to action after the launch to increase the number of downloads.

Mobile Technology

Mobile First: The Opportunities the 4″ Screen Holds

The past decade has witnessed a huge revolution in the hardware and software industries that is measured in power, processor, storage, and bandwidth, one main reason being the exponential evolution of Smartphones and Mobile Applications. Offering game-changing opportunities, smartphones have presented businesses with an amazing way to connect with the clients and grow as a brand. Mobile applications and smartphones have literally entered into each and every industry and changed the way we interact with each other.

Why do we need Mobile Applications?

Mobile Applications are those tiny applications that are installed on your phone to perform various actions such as access an e-commerce site, scan a barcode, buy and sell stocks, read news and blogs and much more. In fact, a majority of businesses that you interact with in your daily life have their own dedicated mobile application – irrespective of the nature of a business. These companies are ahead of the game when it comes to taking their marketing to the next level.

Here are 5 good reasons why your business needs a Mobile App right away.

Mobile Apps present a Direct Marketing Channel In addition to a huge bunch of benefits offered by Mobile Apps, one major benefit is that they create a direct marketing channel to interact with your customers. Apps like Amazon Prime, Netflix and Reuters among others offer a similar level of opportunity to the respective brands. You can include special joining offers, promotions, deal and coupons to your customers. Meanwhile, push notifications to offer a great opportunity to interact with the App users and remind customers about your products and services as and when needed.

Brand Recognition Mobile Apps present a decent and low-intrusive way to connect with your customers. If you are a startup trying to find new customers and gather attention, it is essential to create a brand recognition by creating an innovative and responsive website or developing an innovative Mobile App that comes with a wow factor. In short, create an App with features that your customers will love, which at the same time is beautifully designed and reflects your brand ideology.

Boost Your Website Traffic Did you know that App Stores are accessed by millions of users every single day. If you can take advantage of this traffic and attract more downloads to your App, it provides a great platform to improve traffic to your website, generate authentic and organic backlinks while generating high-quality leads.

Gather Customer Feedback and Insights Mobile Apps present a great opportunity to gather customer data to identify key demographics, promising geographic and demographic segments and much more. Apps Stores also present a public platform to receive customer feedback on the overall performance of your App, which in turn is an opportunity to plan and make product enhancements, identify new business opportunities and improve the product pipeline to meet customer needs more effectively.

Boost Sales If you are an e-commerce business or a seller service, customer satisfaction and word of mouth marketing play a key role in boosting sales. Mobile Apps are a great platform to sell your services while creating a great customer experience.

Consider the Dominos Pizza Mobile App that allows users to order delivery or in-store pickup of their food. Making it easier for your customers to make a purchase via a mobile App can drive huge sales to your business. If you aren’t still ready to do that, then you’re missing out on a huge bunch of customers from an ever-growing market of Mobile Applications.
