The Benefits Of Having A Mobile App For Your Business

 The latest digital trends in South Africa focusses on Social Media, E-commerce, Responsive Websites and Mobile Applications.  Mobile apps provide a much faster alternative than mobile web browsing as web browsing requires a user to launch a web browser, enter a URL and wait for the site to load (providing there is adequate reception), whereas it only takes a second to launch a mobile app because the majority of the information is stored in the application itself making it possible to function offline.  When you get a mobile app for your business, your customers will be very impressed by your forward-thinking approach - your app will have a purpose, a benefit to the end user and it will act much like a not-so-obvious ad for your business.  The more often you can get customers involved with your app, the sooner they will be inclined to buy your product.  Give your business the potential to engage with your customers in real-time, making it simpler and more efficient for your customers to get in touch with your business.

Direct Marketing

Your business can benefit from having the ability to reach your customers 24/7.  The Mobile app is always visible on your customers phones, constantly reminding your customers of your business which adds to effective marketing and ROI for your business.


Your Mobile App reduces the costs of SMS messages and paper newsletters by sending Push Notifications out, allowing you to remind your customers about your products and services, inform them of new stock, new menu's, special events, product launches and promotions etc. 

Loyalty Rewards

Build your customer loyalty with rewards and discounts with a loyalty program, and make it possible for customers to collect their rewards via your mobile app.  You can also sell your products, allow your customers to order online or make a booking directly from your mobile app.

Brand Awareness

You can provide a fun and productive mobile experience around your brand.  Take a big leap and stand out from the competition and be the first in your industry to offer a mobile app to your customers or join the companies in your industry who already have a mobile app.
