Ready to Create Your Own App? Here Are 5 Tips to Get You Started!

10 May 2016

These days, it’s recommended for just about every business to have a mobile app. Apps allow you to be more visible, and build relationships with customers and potential customers. By “pushing” new content to the app, you keep customers informed and your business fresh in their minds.

Apps range greatly in complexity, but even a simple app can be a useful marketing tool. The more complex the app, the more time, talent and/or money are required to create it.
Now, building a simple app can be done without knowing JavaScript, or another programming language.
bobile offers a free app builder that anyone can use successfully.

How Do You Build a Great App?
Building an app requires more than a user-friendly platform. You also need to have a clear plan. Here are some tips to get you started:

Know Your Audience –

If you’re in business, you already know your ideal clients.
• Write a short description of your target audience.

Give the People What They Want –

Since you already know your audience, you know what they like about your business. Design the app to give them things they like and want.
• Make a list of 5 things you want the app to give your customers. This could be anything of value, from useful information to free gifts.

Entice People to Download Your App –

How will you get people to download your app? Easy. Give customers, and potential customers, incentives to download. These could include coupons and app-only discounts.

Let’s say you own a bagel shop. When you design your app, make it clear that anyone who comes in with the download gets a free bagel.
• Make a list of 5 ways you can entice someone to download your app.

Give Them a Reason to Stay –

Once customers download the app, you want them to keep using it. This requires careful consideration. Barrage them with spammy messages and they’ll delete it in a hurry. Use too much restraint and the app is just wasting space. Again, remember your ideal customers. Think of valid reasons to contact them that they’ll appreciate.
• Make a list of 5 good reasons to contact customers.

Gather Your Materials –

Now that you have a plan, get ready to build your app. Gather your materials, so everything is handy. This will include a digital logo for uploading, product copy, pictures, testimonials, etc. Anything you want to include.
• Make a list of pictures, copy, etc. that you’ll need in order to build your app.
