Why Build Mobile Apps?
According to the Guardian, 71% of UK consumer phone users now have smartphones. Smartphone penetration is expected to hit 100% in the UK by 2018. And people carry their phones with them everywhere they go!
Customers on smartphones will increasingly expect more to keep them engaged. The traditional text or print marketing is boring … multimedia rocks! After all, we all have 5 senses, right? Appeal to those 5 senses now because you can, 24/7, 365 days a year.
If you don’t engage your customers, someone else will. Nobody complains about being entertained … equally no potential customer will ever engage with you if you bore them to tears. So … entertain them … make them want to come back for more!
Have you recently checked out the latest smartphones? They can sing and make you a meal (well, maybe not quite all that, but you get the picture). You can now manage orders/bookings, collaborate with clients, keep records of your loyal customers and perform many other tasks in ways that were not previously possible.
Reach more prospects, keep more customers. That’s efficient marketing. In 2011, news of Bin Laden’s death had 40,000 news article mentions, 40,000 blog mentions and 2.2m tweets in less than 12 hours since the news first broke. Stop distributing papers. You need to be Santa to deliver those paper leaflets quick enough to rival digital media. Nobody reads them and it’s bad for the environment!
Get an app. Join the cool club! Show off your app. A fantastic party conversation starter! And hours of fun.
