Why is it vital today for small business owners to have their own app?

If you have a small business today and don’t have an app to promote your business, you need to tackle this now. Smartphone applications have become a way of life. 86% of the time mobile phone users spend on their phone is on apps. A Gallup study indicates that nearly 3/4 of cell phone users check their phone at least once an hour. I think this is a low percentage based on my experience in seeing people and particularly people between 35 and 40 years old. Telephones are visible everywhere.

Hence, cell phone apps have become useful as a marketing tool. You can interact with your customers, promote good feelings, build your brand, and show your customers that you are willing to build a relationship with them.

Where is your phone now? In your pocket or in your hand? Does your phone, like mine, have a lot of different apps that you use for various reasons? If you want to prepare for the future, you should definitely get an application for your company.

So why do I say you should do this? I think you must be progressive. You must find new ways to deliver more value to your customers. There are so many valuable ways an app promotes your business: loyalty and discount programs, messages (push notifications) about special offers, branding, selling online, accepting payments, etc.

Starbucks currently uses an app to reward customers with the app. Domino’s created an application for in-store order picking and delivery. I have a friend who liked Domino’s but hated the hassle of calling them. Now that they have an app, they told me they have brand loyalty. 52% of online orders are created through an app. Domino’s has seen a 28% increase in six-month pre-tax profit in the UK alone. This is impressive.

You can use your application to do research. Ask your customers, they are your friends. What do they really want from you in the future? This will help with product development and customer retention. You can collect feedback on your customers.

Find an app developer you trust. Once you accept a deposit, they work with you to design what you want in your application. Make sure you have a contract that lists the deposit, the total price, and the time. The question of time must be very clear. The contract should include an overview of the site being created: number of pages, specific pages, how many changes it will receive. If you don’t give your developer the required information, you won’t be able to produce your app in a timely manner. Set dates. Then go ahead.
