If you’re going to do business in the 21st century, you need to be able to transcend from actually using the tools of the past and embracing the tools of not just the present, but, the future.
The simple truth is that the 21st-century landscape is an app-based one. There’s nearly an app for everything. We solve problems nowadays thinking from the angle of ‘is there an app that can help me out with this?’. Mobile apps are not only used for Social Media or games, but it can also be used for important operations such as shopping, information search, banking, etc.
Armed with this kind of knowledge, you’ll only do yourself harm if you don’t align your business with the direction of progress that the world has chosen to move towards.
You see, it’s beyond opening Social Media Pages for your business, it’s even beyond creating a website, apps are the way to go. Nowadays, every business needs an android app, so that it can reach more customers. Don’t forget that your customers love apps. Hence, they sure want to have your app on their devices. Also, apps are fun to use and people find it easy to access apps. They are faster to use and can be used on the go. When you compare using an app and a website, mobile apps tend to have a better experience than websites, there is less junk being loaded and the clutter is less.
In 2017, there will be in existence more millions and millions of different apps. Developers are in a crazy rush. Their belief is that with coding and development, the world can be changed… They are not too far from the truth. MPESA in Kenya has come and changed the way Kenyans pay and transfer money. Uber shook the transportation industry of the world with an app-based business.
I once attended a wedding ceremony in Lagos and I fell in love with the idea I saw on the ground. Before the wedding, there was a link to download what was called the Wedding App. With that app, you could read about their love story, get directions to the venue, see the programme matrix, and get any other relevant information that was needed.
With android apps, you can get to your target audience faster. They have these apps on their phones, they just need to love what the app does. Your app might just be to give relevant information which will make them stay hooked.
With apps, it saves you stress as a business owner. You could track orders, receive payments, get receipts and run a smooth business, without the need for carrying too many papers around. With apps, your business can improve on customer relationship and management through direct communication. This will bring in trust, which is an essential aspect of every business operation.
We are definitely in the 21st century. There is a way the world operates. Don’t let your business be left behind.
