Does your Startup Needs a Mobile App?
One of the major challenges faced by many startups is the lack of market presence and recognition. Unless they can quickly distinguish themselves from long-time competitors, they stand no chance. Funding will be difficult, attracting customers will be another issue. However, the introduction of mobile apps has significantly reduced such burdens from startup businesses. Now, these new businesses can show their presence through social media platforms. They can even further amplify their presence by designing interesting mobile apps, specifically targeted to a certain audience group. In short, a startup needs a mobile app to thrive in the new era of technology and fierce competition.
Advantages of Having a Mobile App
1. Acquire Valuable Information
Mobile Apps provide startup business with the opportunity to create customer interaction in real time. The businesses can thus obtain valuable information such as the target audience interest, demographics and customer engagement through the user profiles people create on mobile apps. As a general rule, the more interested a customer is in a certain product or service, the more likely he will end up paying for it. The information acquired will also help you serve your customers better.[sociallocker id=2937]
2. Customer Base Expansion
Despite the fact that a business can already have a traditional web-based site, there is still room for more customer interaction if a mobile app is added to the marketing tools of the business. For instance, a report by Ericsson Mobility Report in 2014 revealed that mobile subscription will reach a target of 9.3 billion by 2019. It was also stated that out of the 9.3 billion subscriptions, 5.6 million will come from smartphones. These figures clearly show the disadvantage startups with no mobile app will be facing in the years to come.

A startup needs a mobile app as part of its marketing strategies. There is no better and low-cost way for the promotion of products and services than spreading the news. Mobile apps make this task easier than ever thought possible.
