I was amazed at a stat I discovered the other day. There are roughly 7.1 billion people living on the earth, 4.2 billion of which own a toothbrush. However, this was not the stat I was amazed at, I went on to discover that 5.1 earthlings own a smartphone. Whatís amazing here is that there are almost a billion people out there that own a smartphone but not a toothbrush Ė staggering!
We know that smartphone and other mobile devices are challenging personal computers with billions smartphones in use. Today mobile is certainly the new face of customer engagement. No matter what your business does, if itís available online and you have a smartphone app that users can download to their devices then your business will continue to thrive. Figures show that the majority of mobile users today use apps more often than they access the internet. In fact, mobile apps now account for over 42% of all internet traffic. This means that if youíre only using a traditional website as your marketing tool then itís likely that youíre missing out on a large portion of your potential customers!
There are so many benefits to having a mobile app. For example, one of the key benefits is that you can use features such as push notifications. So, when a customer downloads your app youíre able to send messages directly to your customerís mobile device so that they automatically see your offers or promotions.
Providing your customers with a mobile app will allow them to have all of your information at any time and even if they are offline. This often results in improves sales, better service and greater overall customer experience. Basically a mobile application can do everything your mobile website can do and lots more.
