Local Free Apps, developed by Prestige Creative Marketing, is the leader in the mobile app development market. Mobile apps for businesses are becoming the new utility bill for all businesses. Only 4% of businesses currently have mobile optimized sites and even less actually have a mobile optimization strategy. Local Free Apps has provided hundreds of apps through its reseller network to small, medium, and large businesses alike.
Having a mobile app for your business is critical to capture those customers that are doing everything through their mobile devices. It is not just restaurants that are in need of mobile apps, rather it is all retailers as more customers spend more time on their handheld devices every day.
Google reports that 60% of all search is now done on android, iPhone, and Blackberry phones. It is critical for customers landing on those 1st page results to be easy to navigate from their particular phone. If a customer has a bad experience, or can not easily navigate the landing page they choose, then they will bounce to another site almost immediately. This means that it is not enough just to be listed on page 1, your page one must be optimized for mobile. If it isn’t, then you have wasted your money getting on the top ten search results for Google.
Mobile apps for business work best when implemented as a redirect from a website. Here is what that means. When someone browses to your xyz company web site on their mobile device, they should have a little box that pops up on the user’s phone asking if they would like to download the mobile app. This is extremely easy for the user to accept and makes your company look like a technology pro. The most important advantage of this is that the customer is now walking around with your business logo on the device that they use all day to interact with the world.
This is the best form of marketing, other than mobile texting, available today!
Once the app is on the customer’s phone, you now can communicate directly to that customer with special deals and offers throughout the week.
