Last week we took a look at some of the more general questions concerning a business’s need for a mobile app. This week we consider some of the more specific benefits that come with having one.
First of all, you probably use your own smartphone often enough to realize how much you need it when you’re looking for a local business. To be sure, most of the potential clients looking for your services will likely still go to your website first, but interestingly, those who are searching through their phones are much more likely to require those services right now.
So, you definitely need to have a mobile-friendly presence, and a mobile website alone can go a long way to making that happen. But if you’ve arrived at the conclusion that you don’t need a mobile app for your business, chances are that could be a failure of imagination. In addition to serving as an excellent marketing tool, mobile apps – even boring ones – for small- and medium-sized businesses can both streamline your professional activities as well as establish a level of customer loyalty that’s simply not attainable for competitors who haven’t made the same level of commitment to their customers’ mobile needs. If you run a restaurant, for example, you can use your app to arrange reservations and deliveries, display menus, or send notifications of special events. If you run a roofing business, you can provide your clients with information about the materials you use, schedule service calls, and provide estimates.
We obviously can’t provide a comprehensive list of the advantages a mobile app can bring to every type of business (well, maybe we could, but you probably wouldn’t read the whole post). Still, what it gets down to is that a mobile app specific to your business will allow you to give your customers choices, to save them time, and to make their experience with your business both a pleasant and memorable one. Developing a mobile app will not only provide tangible benefits in the short term, it will also give you a head start in a world where the negotiation and delivery of goods and services will rely more and more on mobile technology.
