Nowadays, it’s safe to say that online platforms have a big influence on our lives. There are a lot of perks, especially for those who are engaging in trade and commerce. If you’re finally investing your capital to improve your strategies and reaching out to potential customers, you’re on the right track.
Aside from traditional media advertisements, there are now more ways to help boost your company’s visibility. In addition to having your own company website, creating a mobile application can be insanely beneficial in brand visibility and customer loyalty.
Here are a handful of ways mobile apps boost your company’s visibility:
Provide complete information and details
In television or radio commercials, businesses purchase time and space in order to promote a specific product or service. Therefore, a business owner only has limited time to introduce the product and urge people to buy it. Aside from being pricey, this marketing technique isn’t always effective.
On the radio, the time slot during rush hour is more expensive compared to slots during the wee hours of the evening. If you don’t have enough financial bandwidth, you can only air the advertisements during those later hours. With this, getting meaningful results isn’t always guaranteed unless you have an unlimited supply of funding.
Why carry the burden of paying for a hefty price when you can have your own application and provide essential information about your products. All of that is possible when you have a well built mobile application.
You can share, post and present different products without having to pay per second like in many media advertisements. In short, you have total freedom in choosing what content to post in the application. Users are able to connect with you and grasp the message you’re trying to convey.
Enhance customer relationship
Because almost everything is digital nowadays, people don’t always resort to search engines to find what they need. Some of them search the Apple Store or Google Play to find what they’re looking for.
If your app appears and it’s a good one, you can begin to build a solid relationship with potential customers. Note that this can only happen if you have an effective and user-friendly application.
Gone are the days when people actually wait for a page to load on the site. This is also applies to applications that are not mobile-optimized. In fact, it takes about 50 milliseconds for users to form an opinion about your app. If the graphics, navigation and overall design are unique and interesting, they’ll likely stay. However, when the phone application isn’t aesthetically pleasing, people will likely uninstall it.
Now, when this happens, you’ll lose a lot of potential customers. Sales can drop and eventually, competitors will take over. This is why it’s important to distinguish the needs, wants and trends to be relevant.
Accessibility is one of the biggest factors why a certain app can gain attention and popularity. If e-commerce functions and features are organized and easy to navigate, people will be happy to browse more products in the app. Who knows, existing customers might give you good reviews and even recommend your business to friends and family.
Also remember how powerful word of the mouth is. You can either get instant popularity or rapidly lose customers with a bad reputation and poor marketing.
Keep customers engaged
Promotions and the entertainment value of a mobile app constitutes to higher visibility. Make an effort to utilize pop colors and creative campaigns to get the attention and interest of your target market.
Find out what’s “in” and integrate it into the app. See what the competitors are doing and do it better. It’s also important to get to know who your target audience is to create a more personal approach.
Send important updates and notifications
For a mobile app to be efficient and relevant, constant improvement and updates must be done. Send alerts, promotions and special offers so the user can pay attention to the app and discover new products available.
However, don’t overdo this strategy as some people aren’t fond of daily notifications. Flash only crucial reminders like for a year-end or anniversary sale.
Retain existing customers
Pay attention not only in getting more downloads and installations but also in retaining existing users. If your mobile app download is good, then you can get more customers.
It’s important to work with experienced developers to create a useful, aesthetically pleasing and functional mobile app. Don’t settle for less and make sure to increase exposure across all mobile devices. Remember that there are a lot of people who depend on these applications in terms of lifestyle, education, beauty and health.
Finally, a higher level of visibility equates to more sales.
Get ahead of your competitors and make online visibility virtual through mobile applications!

One of our clients, the Executive Director of the Stroke Awareness Foundation, had this to say about their time with us:

So some of you may have heard of Google’s newest algorithm update that is set to start rolling out next month(April 21st) and are in an absolute panic. I’ve fielded several inquiries from colleagues/friends about these updates and I am willing to help/assist if anyone needs it. I’ve been in the Web Design/Dev and SEO game for well over a decade; this update is believed to be MAJOR and have more impact than both the Panda and Penguin updates(MANY sites saw huge losses in the SERP’s from those two). I’ve even heard this newest mobile-friendly update being coined “Mobilegeddon”. Sounds scary, but many of you(especially those who have gotten sites done by my companies) are in good shape for this update. If not, I can still field any questions you may have and at least point you in the right direction to mitigate any potential losses.
I won’t go into technical details for the sake of keeping this shorter and sweeter but the first step is to run a quick scan of your site’s URL through Google Webmaster Tools (you can do this by visiting the link below). Determine how Google interprets your pages and make a informed decision from there. There are no levels to this algorithmic change; you are either mobile-friendly or not.
Check your site here: https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/mobile-friendly/
If you’re site is not mobile-friendly after running this scan, let me know.
Share this post as your friends/colleagues may not even know about this update and if you have any questions, send me a direct message or call the business line @ 321-287-2734.
Everyone knows that the bottom line is green, so to speak. The impact that mobile devices are having on the world is staggering. Some small companies today are running part if not their whole businesses from their mobile devices. What that means for them is less time behind a desk. One can advertise, recruit, draft documents, conduct their business and get paid from anywhere in the world night or day. This means costs savings and time efficiency. As you read this there is likely someone in a cafe celebrating the big sale they just made with another round of latte.
There was a time not so long ago when you had to have an office to get business. Now you just need a computer. If you are going to own a computer, that computer should be mobile or you will need an office to keep it in. By cutting the bulk out of business overhead you also cut costs. The office is just the tip of the iceberg. Your mobile devices can be loaded with applications that serve to replace many of the office supplies that you have needed to fill it. From card readers to file cabinets and beyond. You can even get a virtual assistant that obeys your every order and not pay them a huge salary. This way of business isn’t just easy on your budget, it is also easier on the planet. Think of the paper you can save. A lot of companies today will send your receipts to your email. The trees that are being saved annually could number in the millions, if all receipts were handled that way. By cutting costs, you can free up more money to expand your business. If you are like one of the nearly 235 million mobile users in the US, you are likely reading this from your mobile device while out of the office. These devices and software applications give businesses the opportunity to compete and thrive. The bottom line is rising to meet you, don’t miss it.
A smart phone isn’t just a a phone any more, it’s a genius or one might say a genie that grants wishes. It is also an office, a cyber arcade, a library, a social gathering, a portal to the internet, an electronic mail service, a bank, a stock broker, a file cabinet and the list goes on.
Converging technologies are making the your smart phone smarter and much more useful. For those that doesn’t know, converging technologies are what you get when you cross new technology with an existing one or a new one. Around the world the popularity of smart phones has risen steadily over the last decade. A smart phone can even be a fully functioning virtual office. You can take online orders, process payments, hire employees and finish a gig. When you finish a job, you can have the funds transferred to your bank. There is barely a need to go to the office anymore.
The idea that smart phone software producers keep expanding the functionality of the phone is good. It means that one has the convenience of accessing things and people around the world anytime of the day or night. The younger generations have been utilizing this technological adaptability to the fullest potential of the mobile devices and their software. They are driving the industry ahead with a demand for greater and greater innovations. When they see a barrier, they break through it. These devices aren’t just for kids. As the kids turn to adults, they bring fresh ideas and the technologies they grew up on to the workplace. There are approximately 235 million mobile device users in the US alone. They are using the phones to work, play and socialize at an increasing rate every year.
The genie is out of the bottle and the ‘mobile revolution’ is moving ahead. Whatever you wish for, don’t get left behind.
