The hot trend and rage these days is mobile devices, smartphones, tablets, and lots of apps to make life easier to manage ... apps for just about anything. Games, Lifestyle, Getting Organized, Travel, Maps, etc.
So I thought I should have an app for my business, too.
I made contact with a friend who is a web and technology expert to find out more. He confirmed that mobile is where everything is going.
And the statistics he shared with me were staggering:
GETTING MOBILE FRIENDLY
Most websites are not mobile friendly, and statistics show that people take about three seconds to view a site and then move on if they have a bad mobile experience.
I knew my own website wasn’t mobile friendly and I needed help. I contacted my friend Keith, a technology consultant who builds websites and apps, and asked him to explain the basics.
He told me there are two types of mobile:
THE APPS ADVANTAGE
Apps can tap into many features of the phone, such as one-touch calling, GPS, camera, video, audio, text messages and much more. This allows a rich interactive experience between the app and the user.
Even sharing my app is as simple as sending a text message to someone. It’s like having my own marketing department built right into the app.
By providing an app for my clients and prospects, my business now is just a touch away, with:
MARKETING YOUR APP
Of course, like for any good business, I have to market my app and let people know how to get it.
But thanks to QR Codes (pictured here, top for Androids, bottom for iPhone) I can promote my app almost anywhere: on my website(s), business card, brochures, posters, etc. With one simple scan on your phone or mobile device, you're automatically directed to download my app from the Apple or Google stores in minutes.
As a voice over coach, I have found that having an app has been a tremendous asset to my business.
People can easily book appointments and classes, hear about my demo services, receive updates and notifications from me instantly, and stay connected with me on Facebook, Twitter and more, all from within my app.
And that’s just a few of the benefits an app can bring any business.
My app can be found by searching Joe Loesch on iTunes or Google Play, or just scan the QR codes here. Download The Voice Actor and imagine the benefits of an app for your own voice over business!
