Growing a Business

Any business, old or new, large or small, wants the business to grow and in order to do that, a business needs to market its products or its services. Marketing does, of course, cost money and one of the most difficult things about marketing is ensuring that you are advertising in the correct way and to the correct people. As the number of advertisements grows, so does a business’s chances of its adverts not being seen or not by the right people at least. However, the introduction of mobile apps has the ability to change all that.

Although most people may think that the different apps are just for social media purposes, they are very wrong as a business which has its own app is ahead of the game, introducing a new concept to product and service marketing, one that places them ahead of their competitors and therefore giving it the ability to steadily grow.

The fact that an app is placed on a mobile device ensures that the person with that mobile device will receive any message you send out. Studies have recently shown that the average mobile device owner will use that device for at least 2 hours every day and during those 2 hours, a business’s logo, if nothing else, will show and ingrain itself in the user’s memory. Perhaps, even unintentionally, when the mobile device owner has a need for something the business with the app on the device, will be the one the owner seeks to fulfill their need.

The app development companies are aware of this and so they can ensure that an app they create is impressive and has an appropriate logo for the business, making it easier for it to be embedded into a mobile device owner’s mind. Of course, the developer will also ensure that the app meets all of the business’s requirements and some of those requirements will be:

Availability – Allowing any app owner the ability to quickly and easily contact the relevant business.

Alerts – Making the app owner aware of any new offers for specials or discounts that the business may be offering. This ensures that when the business does make offers, they are seen by the correct people and not wasted on those that have no interest in what the business offers.

Professionalism – The fact that a business has its own app and that the app is effective, gives the business a more professional look than many of its competitors, allowing it to acquire that edge which is needed in this very competitive age.

Apps today are therefore more than just a convenience for social media they are or at least can be, a very effective and valuable marketing tool. Because of their value to businesses, more and more app developers are becoming available and so one can now easily be found online where they will be pleased to create an app in accordance with a business’s specific needs. The app is, therefore, the new, essential marketing tool.
