Remember the days when Mario Brothers was the coolest game around?
Well sure it may still have its place in vintage video game nights, which happen from time to time, but they still cant compete with the newer guys, the forward thinkers, the most popular “kids” in the playground so to speak.
Although with some people this still seems to be the case with their business.
Its like the people that said “I Dont need A Website” 10 years ago, and have now been forced into the forward movement of the industry that they work in. Of course now everyone has a website, it seems silly not to.
But what about a mobile app? Does this have a place in your business?
Well it seems all the “Cool Kids” have one, but what about you?
If you dont have one yet, you should seriously consider it.
Well apparently people love apps! Big surprise right? Make sure you are part of the front row of people bringing their business and marketing efforts forward.
I have rounded up the top 10 reasons why YOUR BUSINESS SHOULD GET A MOBILE APP.
1. Your Customers Will Love You
Smartphones and Mobile Devices are outselling PCs across the world, in fact the iPad alone outsold laptops and PCs last year, and they are due to do it again. People love being mobile, and typically people are glued to their mobile devices, so get into their pockets and grab their attention!
2. Be Better Than The Crowd.
Lets face it, every business has a website, Facebook page, and Twitter account. How do you differentiate yourself from the competition? In this day and age its difficult to cut through all of the media that is bombarding customers, but with an app you get attention that was impossible to get from before. Push the boundaries with mobile technology!
3. Long Term Business Vision
Its amazing how quickly marketing techniques and strategies can go out of fashion, but with the mobile platform, you have a long term business strategy. Do you really think Smart Phones are going to go out of fashion? Not if Apple have anything to say about it!

Once you are in those customers pockets (so to speak) you can deliver savings right to them on a regular basis. That way you always have repeat customers, and they have been proven to be bigger spenders than new customers!

Every man and his dog has at least 1000 emails in his inbox that he never reads, and it fills up daily. Keep away from the dreaded ‘Spam’ inbox and go right for the customers. Keep away from the Spam inbox and find a new way to get in front of your customers!
