If you are a Blogger and wondering how a mobile application (app) can work for you, you’re in luck! Today I will be looking into the ways that an app can work for your blogging business.
Benefits of Mobile App for Your Blogging Business
Mailing List, Comments & Your Blog
With our apps you can automatically move your mailing list over from your website or auto-responding software which will make it a lot easier to let the readers know that you posted a new blog. This is essentially a push notification and you know you see and pay attention to notices on your phone more than your email. This is also an easier way for your fans to end up on your email list as they can use their email when they sign up for your app.
We can create a custom forum where people can leave comments or feedback for you on your page. You will also be able to manage the comments from the app. Once again, this will make your business more convenient for you since it will be in the palm of your hand and well, with you 24/7.
What if your blog is on YouTube, or a portion of it is? We have a spot for that too. You can easily display videos from your YouTube channel to (in) your mobile app so people can still follow what you are doing. It helps when you can take a video and immediately upload it to your YouTube channel as opposed to having to wait until you get home to post the video. Don’t forget to add captions to your videos to be sure you reach all of your audience’s needs.
As a blogger you probably have a website for your work. You can connect your app to your website so you don’t have to do MORE extra work. The app would be able to integrate any mobile friendly pages allowing your fans to have more flexibility with the page. Hopefully every page of your website is mobile responsive, but note that your mobile app is totally different from your mobile responsive website.
If you prefer to work in a podcast format, we can also tie that into the app. I know a few bloggers who are creating podcasts or being featured on a podcast. This will keep your followers informed of activity outside of your blog. This makes it easier for the writer to keep all of this information in one place which, in turn, will make it easier for your followers as well. People like having all their information in one place, which is what the app would give them.
Adding a music tab to your app will give your readers a better way to connect with your writing. This could be music that inspires you or maybe it would be a song that goes with a specific blog.
As you can see, there are a lot of feature that could benefit those bloggers that want to stay on top of their blogging business and stay connected to their audience and followers. Many of these can benefit any type of business so if you have another side hustle or business, consider a mobile app for that business as well. The app can be tailored to fit what you need. If you need more insight into why a mobile app is great for any business, please reach out to the #AppMama as we would be happy to discuss your options.
