If you’re looking at the possibility of building a mobile app, you’re going to want to make sure that you get all of your questions answered first, right? Here’s everything you’ll want to know or consider to help you see what you’ll get from this choice.
Frequently asked questions when considering a mobile app for business
What’s the cost of mobile app development?
You may already be expecting this, but it needs to be said. The price will vary based on the needs that you’re looking to meet within the app itself. It’s frustrating, of course, but never fear. You can get a quote based on the basic information that you provide and then that’ll help you know the budget to expect for an app that is actually going to meet your needs. We have plans from DIY to custom creation so you can see how this can definitely vary on price.
What can a mobile app be used for?
Not an uncommon question, and a fantastic one! There are so many ways that you can use your business app. First brand awareness. Smartphone users now expect and demand a mobile app for any businesses they’re looking at using long-term. Apps are easy to use and convenient for phone lovers – you know, like EVERYONE!
As well, a mobile app is all about getting deals to customers. With push notifications and digital flyers, you can use your app to get those deals and coupons and “exclusive offers” to loyal customers, helping your exposure overall.
Then there’s the point that you’ll be able to enjoy a leg up on your competition, too. Modern shoppers will go with the brand that has the option of an app over the one that doesn’t, especially if it’s a great app.
What’s the difference between a mobile app and a mobile website?
An excellent question. The main difference is the fact that an app is designed for your phone to interact with the features and conveniences that modern shoppers expect. A mobile website is still going to be clunky on a phone and quite honestly, doesn’t have the same features… it is meant to showcase a website in a more mobile view.
A mobile website is a great idea, to be sure, as it means that the text, images, etc will all function natively on a smartphone. However, it’s not a replacement for an app, which is designed to be intuitive and functional on a whole other level.
Bottom line: if you want to compete and earn customers, you are going to have both of these rather than just one or the other!
How do I market my mobile app?
You market your app any way that you can! Through social media, coupons, flyers, newsletters, etc. Get the word out there about your app so that users can see just how convenient it’s going to be to download it and use it properly!
