Having an app developed for your business has many benefits.

A well designed app can help you to gain new customers, keep a good relationship with your existing customes, offer extra features and benefits and make communications easier.

An app can also help you to improve your services and get feedback, save you time and money in the running of your business, make your products/services more accessible and makes you stand out from the crowd!

 

What is an app?

An app is a piece of software which is saved to your mobile device. Unlike a website, which is temporarily sent to your web browser, the app code is on your phone or tablet. 

Benefits of an app over a website? 

After the first download, an app is easier for your users to reach from their phone or tablet than a website because the user can simply click on the app and open it rather than bookmarking and finding your webpage on their browser. 

An app also allows you to securely store information for a user on their phone. This means that you can add automatic login instead of asking a user to login with a username and password each time. 

Apps also have features like push notifications where a note appears on the user’s phone reminding them to use your app or of some other app-related appointment. 

Why get an app for your business? 

Keep Customers

The right kind of app, designed with regular customer usage in mind, is a great way to engage with your existing customers. 

This increases their loyalty to you, the amount of times that they access your products or services and making you a household name.

Get Customers 

Having an app also gives you another channel to find new customers, especially among mobile users and the younger generation who tend to be more app-focused. 

Get feedback and improve 

 Using questionnaires, quizzes, instant chat and analytics you can get valuable feedback from customers and insights into how they view your products or services. 

More reasons to get an app 

Provide Easy, Instant Communication

One terrific feature of having an app is that you can be more accessible to your users.

With regular micro blog updates, instant chat, a private, secure network for you and your customers and an easy way to send out relevant tips, guidelines, tutorials or any other information to specific customers as you interact with them. 

Social media provides you with communication and photo/status updates but having this on your own app gives you a chance to create your own community for your users which is private, exclusive, content-driven, ad free and where you are in charge! 

Stand out from the Crowd 

An app also helps you to stand out from the crowd, provides you with useful demographics about new customers and increases your business reach. 

Provide added value to customers  

An app can provide your customers will all kinds of extras. 

You could offer tips, tutorials, videos, animations, personalised journeys and much more. You can tailor the app experience for a user based on their inputs and their progress. 

An app can provide loyalty points for users as well as rewarding their hard work and progress with badges, levels, prizes and awards.

You can provide information on your services and products as well as easy appointment booking, rescheduling or cancellation and broadcast vital updates to users with push notifications and app micro blog messages. 

Events or classes and event RSVP are other great features you can have on an app.

Broadcast new class times or your latest events to all your users or to a select group of users and let them book in advance and even distribute the details to them via the app – no more lost emails!
