If you think that mobile apps are solely for big-name brands like Walmart and Bank of America, you are wrong. More and more small and midsize businesses follow the mobile trend, understanding that an effective mobile strategy involves more than just a mobile-friendly website.
These days you’ll notice that some of the small businesses you interact with within your everyday life have their dedicated mobile app—be it the corner coffee shop or the beauty spa downtown. These companies are way ahead of the game when it comes to taking their marketing and sales to the next level.
1. Be visible to customers at all times
Remember the old saying, “out of sight, out of mind”.
Statistics show that the average American spends more than two hours a day(!) on his or her mobile device. One of the most enormous benefits of having a mobile app is that all the information you’d like to provide to your customers—including special sales and promotions—is right at their fingertips. Through push notifications, you’re getting even closer to a direct interaction and can quickly remind customers about your products and services whenever it makes sense.
2. Stand out from the competition
These days mobile apps at the small business level are still rare, and this is where you can take a giant leap ahead of your competitors. Be the first in your neighborhood to offer a mobile app to your customers. They’ll be astonished by your forward-thinking approach.
