How about your customers seeing your brand several times a day - every time they pick up their smartphone? And how about you sending your customers notifications directly onto their phones - even if you don't even have their phone numbers?
Sounds good? Then you will find here what you have been waiting for: your own native app that is linked to your website in real time, being available for free download in app stores around the world.
MORE BRAND LOYALTY WITH AN APP
In the course of our brand design service, we now offer our website customers the opportunity to get their own native app too - of course with their logo and their company colors. And best of all: the app is linked to the website data in real time. A separate update of the data in the app is not necessary.
THIS IS WHY YOU NEED AN APP
The facts are clear: mobile phone users spend 85% of their phone time in apps, but only 14% on mobile websites. You certainly want your business to fall into the much larger part of 85%, right?
We create your native app in your look and feel. Your app looks like your business. The app strengthens your brand and your image, as your app icon is displayed on the home screen of your customers' mobile phones. This also strengthens the customers' trust in your brand.
All contents of your app (such as blog, shop, events, subscription functions, forums, galleries, etc.) are linked to the data on your website and are thus updated in real time. This ensures immediate updates of your app without any additional programming effort.
Notifications (or so-called "push notifications") ensure the best possible direct contact to your customers. For example: "10% discount on product X for members - today only." on your customer's mobile phone display. You can't get any closer to your customers.
Your native app ensures maximum customer loyalty and is perfect for building or strengthening a community. People simply love to communicate and interact with like-minded people; especially if this takes place in a protected environment within an app.
Do you sell products, services, subscriptions or tickets on your website? Great! But it gets even better: All purchases in the app are linked to your website backend. This means that there are no additional expenses for sales. To give you a comparison: For purchases within an app (so-called "in-app purchases") you would normally have to deduct approx. 30% commission to Apple or Google.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A NATIVE APP AND A MOBILE WEBSITE?
Nowadays, every good website is optimized for all end devices, including smartphones, of course. This has not only to do with ease of use, but also with Mobile First Indexing, which Google rigorously enforced by September 2020 (we covered this on our blog). Google is now ranking a website based on its phone version.
So far so good. The phone website is like your website, adapted in size to fit mobile phone screens. If you want to visit the website, you have to open the website in the phone's built in internet browser.
A native app is a stand-alone unit that is visible as an app icon on the phone display; like the apps for WhatsApp, Instagram, Facebook and os on. Of course, you can also visit Facebook etc. via the internet browser of your phone - but it is more tedious and less inviting.
Imagine getting a notification from Facebook for a friend request. You will see this notification as a red dot on the Facebook app icon on your phone. If you do not use the Facebook app, but only use Facebook on the internet browser, you must first open your internet browser on your phone, navigate to the Facebook website, log in and only then will you see that you have received a friend request.
With a native app, you are directly and quickly in the perception of your customers.
A native app is a real milestone in terms of digitization, customer proximity and user-friendliness. This takes user engagement to a whole new level. You can't get more brand loyalty.
WHERE CAN PEOPLE GET YOUR APP?
Your customers can get your app wherever they get all other apps: iOS users in the Apple App Store and Android users in the Google Play Store.
In addition to that, your native app is equally functional for smartphones and tablets or iPads. This is how you cover all mobile devices with your app.
