What is the best tool that gives us access to others?…. Our mobile devices… from going online, to text messages, surfing, e-commerce, and the phone itself. Studies have shown that we have our mobile devices within our reach 93% time (Return Path). These same studies also reveal that we are getting over 50% of our email on our phone and over ½ of our Internet purchases are being completed on mobile devices. Text is another outlet that receives over a 93% open and read rate….. Email only has a 10-12% open rate. Simple logic tells us that if I could obtain access to my customers and prospects 93% of the time… and the customer have access to me and my products/services the same amount of time…. There is nothing in the marketplace that provides that amount of access.
A mobile app will provide the best tool to:
• Gain referrals – the mobile app can created a form to refer friends and associates.
• A quality designed mobile app requires no scrolling on the phone to make things bigger to read… Custom built mobile web apps are so friendly to read and navigate, there is no need to have to go use a laptop or desktop. No cramming the whole large computer screen into a little phone screen which is totally unusable… but that has been the initial industry standard… “Mobile Friendly” (NOT VERY FRIENDLY WHEN YOU CANNOT READ ANYTHING). Responsive designs are not much better due too many limitations and no customization abilities.
• Incentive programs for referrals can be part of the app,.. a street team with the tool to share your message immediately with others and acquire real people’s names and information., (Bird Dog’s)
• Share your message over various social networks… to expand your reach inviting Face Book,Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ and other social network users to see the mobile web app.
• Provide special deals and promotions through the app
• Provides a platform for others to sign up to be part of your Club/Team/Blog/Newsletters
• Use the social networks to have customers go to the app and add to the phone’s home page as a logo…and then instantly appears and acts like any other app on the phone… BUT NO DOWNLOAD.
• Customers sign up to receive text and emails from the representative to keep them informed (This is priceless because each message that is text will be read in a timely manner without distraction)… The link in the message takes them to the app for a full blown color –audio-video-html layout describing the offer… Flexible to accomplish anything you want.
• 24/7 access to your company and your 24/7 access to the customer (One on One without distractions)
• Share a QR code scan with a new prospect and they can add the company icon on their home page of their phone and have instant access to everything you want them to have at their fingertips….NO DOWNLOAD REQUIRED..
• Customers can purchase products through the app linking into your own secure API links or PayPal or Google Checkout..
• All notifications and forms filled out are available by immediate email or your own API link to place the data in your database.
• Make one change on the app and it is changed on over 5000 phones that try to access it immediately… NO DOWNLOADS REQUIRED EVER!!
• The app provides a one on one communication experience which is private every time it is used… an internet connection through a browser or a social network does not provide the one on one communication like a mobile web app does.. Those other mediums have everyone else trying to advertise and grab your attention… providing overwhelming distractions.
Other ways to access a mobile web app is very simple…. Use your mobile device browser and go to the main website… The system knows that a mobile device is attempting to connect to the website and seamlessly switches the connection to the mobile web app… Simple and very fast with 3G or 4G connections. This means that it is not imperative a customer adds the app to their home page .. they have access to the app 24/7 by just going to the website on a mobile device.
These are a few of the reasons that a mobile web app can help every business and their sales force expand and provide better access and service to their customers… Truly customizable mobile web app platforms can brand your company. Your company has control of the system under the master platform. You have the flexibility to create just about anything you want….
The price for mobile web apps is becoming ridiculously low.. We have seen prices of $4 a month up to $79+ a month for a mobile web app. We can offer custom mobile web apps for as low as $4/mo based on on volume purchases or as little as $9/mo for non profits…. On large sales group organizations… thousands of apps for a few quarters a month each.
