Why not, when all eyeballs are tuned to mobile screens 24/7/365? The sheer usefulness, not to mention addictiveness of our pocket-sized wonders is a golden opportunity no marketer will pass up.

This is why it’s time for businesses, big or small, even the brick-and-mortar ones, to start building an online presence – one that's accessible on smartphones. Creating a mobile app for business isn’t just getting on the bandwagon; it’s what will dictate the entrepreneurial space for the foreseeable future.

To get businesses hopping on the app train, here are a few reasons you need to have a dedicated presence on mobile.

Give Customers More Value

Let’s say you’ve succeeded in turning a lead into a paying customer. What you need to do now is to convince them to keep interacting with your business to promote sales, but Viper Online Marketing says you need to give them a reason to do so.

Having an app comes in handy. Creating a loyalty program within your business app allows you to set up mechanics like a point system. Whenever a customer interacts with your service or purchases a product, they’ll collect points for more rewards. Having these mechanics exclusively within the app prompts customers to download it to take advantage of your offer. Business retained.

Strengthen the Brand

Mobile apps secure awareness and communication between the firm and the customer. The constant communication lets your target market know that your brand is reliable, that it’s someone they can trust.

Building trust through your brand opens them up to further sales pitches and offers, making them commit to the kind of service provided by your business. Using an app to do this demonstrates the trust users are looking for, showing them what the brand stands for.

Profit Booster

Customer satisfaction often correlates with increased sales. SalesForce even says that the way customers feel they’re being treated directly influences their buying habits. Generating greater interest in your product and business creates greater consumer demand. A mobile app makes this possible by being present in a personal, often-checked item: the smartphone. In addition to a responsive website, a mobile app boosts sales while providing a great experience for users.
