Why mobile app development is important
Having a well-designed product app lets you not only collect data about users and improving the customer experience, but you can also build a strong bond with them, create more sales opportunities and increase your brand popularity.
The app users will communicate and interact with your brand thanks to the push notifications, offers available only in the app, and special promotions. They have quick access to your app any time during the day or night. All you have to do is to entertain them by the creative content. And they will come back to your app.
As we mentioned, you can sell the services throughout the application. How? Prepare the customer journey – start with a free trial week/month, and then offer a subscription model. Or sell the products according to the current seasons and holidays. Don’t forget to plan a discount code and sales campaign with influencers. Those are the simple examples but remember that these days people are spending a lot more time being online. Having a mobile application for your product will give a lot more occasion to promote your goods.
There are a few options that you can offer to the users – if you want to provide the application in an open model, you can earn money on the ads and promotions created by your partners. Before the user uses one of the app options, he or she will have to watch a 30-second advertisement. On the other side, you can promote your brand, in the same way, various mobile applications such as Facebook, Instagram, and many more.
Users can choose what kind of notifications they want to receive and when i.e. information about a special sales campaign is so they could make a favorable purchase.
If the user is not satisfied with the purchased item, has a problem with the subscription, or the application does not work as it should, they can contact customer service to solve the issues. This way, users feel more taken care of and understood.
What are the benefits of mobile applications?
The main benefit is speed. You can have a website and non-responsive mobile web design; you can have the website and responsive mobile web design, which is better than the first option, but the best way to achieve your KPI’s is to have a mobile application. Applications store data about user preferences, their biometric data, and more on the device. Without data from the device, the website must connect with the server, which takes time, and sometimes this solution does not work. What are the other benefits of mobile applications?
- Content according to the preferences
Thanks to the collected data about engagement, behaviour, interests, location, push-notifications preferences, latest purchases, and more, you can suggest the user-customized content that will be the most interesting for them. It is called user-centric personalization, and it influences great user experience.
- Online and offline access
You can decide which options should work with or without an Internet connection. Spotify is a great example – where the user can play music offline after downloading the library from the playlist. Of course, some applications require an Internet connection for most of the services, like FinTech applications. The user needs to be connected to the Internet to make a payment or to check the money course. However, if there are features which don’t require an Internet connection, it is nice to have it, no matter if you have an e-commerce, FinTech, or internal application that allows you to manage your company's system.
- Interesting features
The best part of mobile applications is technologically advanced device features that make the user's life simpler. Change the device camera to the documents or QR codes scanner or the device’s GPS to track your location to find the best train connection. Or connect devices – the sports watch with the mobile application to track the training progress. The possibilities are limitless!
- Attractive app design
Remember that it’s very important how the application looks like, if it’s intuitive for the user, if the product that you sell is well presented, and the purchasing process is simple. The good product designer will make your app easy to use. In the design process, all of the user’s needs and limitations need to be considered.
How much does it cost to make an app?
In CSHARK we look at new projects individually, so there is no right answer on how much the application development costs. It depends on many factors:
- 1/ The application complexity (MVP or a large application)
- 2/ Choice of technology
- 3/ The number of mobile app engineers and UX/UI designers engaged in the project
- 4/ The team competencies (junior, regular or senior mobile app developers or product designers)
- 5/ The model of cooperation (Fixed-price or Time&Material)
- 6/ The final deadline
- 7/ The budget
And when the applications run:
- 1/ Further development, optimization, and maintenance of the app
- 2/ Upgrades to the latest version of the OS
- 3/ Bug fixing
- 4/ Improvement of the application performance
