The world is getting more and more mobile every day! Because of this, businesses and how they design their digital marketing needs to work with and be designed to interact in a mobile world. And, a nice perk is that website design and web apps built for this mobile world can make you a lot of money!
Everyday new mobile apps and mobile websites prove that a good concept, and an addicting feature or two, can bring people back over and over. Kim Kardashian’s mobile game has made $43 million so far since launching in late June last year, proving once again that life is not fair.
Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, a freemium game in the style of Candy Crush Saga, has earned more for Glu Mobile than all the company’s other apps combined, disclosed Glu Mobile in their third-quarter earnings report. So, what does this have to do with your small business? Everything! The same things that are done in this game, can be built into your website and mobile experiences for your users.
Mobile apps are now being talked about or used in every field of business; industry and size are no longer factors, as technology expands it is giving businesses a chance to have equal footing. Almost every business now has a website, and if you don’t, your first step should be developing a website with a designer. But having a mobile or web app can only make your business more profitable if you approach it with a strong idea, and a hook to draw people to your business.Apps as a Promotional Tool
Phones are no longer just for calling a business to learn about them. They are the way a large portion of people will connect and interact with your business. Most mobile users access the internet on their smartphones and other mobile devices. Today, everything your website does can be done on a mobile platform. Many businesses now use their mobile to include commerce, trading and payment. That being the case, web apps has proved to be the very future of computing. Developing a web app and promoting it among your users is extremely beneficial to further your business, to promote new products and services, or find new ways to gain feedback and stay on their mind.Earning with Your App
Many small businesses try to avoid designing apps or mobile websites for their business for fear of over spending and not getting any return, which would ultimately break their budget. It is true that mobile app design can turn out to be an expensive investment, but this is certainly not always the case. Going in for a basic app, and not going for the next candy crush off the bat, will bring down your cost. You can also reduce the cost by planning your app well in advance and bringing a strong idea to the table. And, when working an idea out, either by you or with a designer, be sure to keep in mind you want to build for the now, but leave room for the future. By not keeping the future in mind this could mean a whole redesign from the ground up and that would add a lot of extra cost.
