Unlocking Success: Embracing Mobile Apps for Small Businesses in 2023 and Beyond
You almost can’t place too much emphasis on the need for digital tools like mobile apps and web software for small businesses in 2023. Even the smallest companies, with few employees, can make solid use of mobile applications to enhance customer or user experience (UX). In fact, it’s precisely the small businesses who benefit most from them, to help maintain a smaller staff, and still provide outstanding service.
Let’s explore other terrific reasons to consider mobile applications for your business.
Improve User Accessibility
You’ve probably heard a lot about User Interface(UX). It’s a top concern for businesses, and one of the first things you have to master is creating easy access to your products and services. Smartphone applications accomplish this marvelously by allowing your customers to do business with you without having to step into a store or meet with you in person as often. Long story short, this is a crucial step toward gaining a greater customer volume without investing tons of capital (i.e., hiring more staff).
Offer New Services
Think about how many services we enjoy, nowadays, that would have been unimaginable 30 years ago. Even in just the last three years, since the pandemic lockdowns, we’ve seen a surge in grocery buying and restaurant delivery through mobile app technology. Here’s where you can brainstorm certain things you’ve wanted to do with your business, but couldn’t because of past limitations. Even banks have done this with the expansion of their online banking services, which allow customers a much faster way to manage finances compared to the old days.
Bolster Business Credibility
Yes, it’s tough to stand out among the pack these days (even in small/local markets). Arguably the fastest way to do this, however, is to incorporate digital services, using the full range of platforms, faster and smoother than your competitors. On the flip side, if you don’t include UX friendly mobile apps, then you risk falling behind every business that is.
Interface with Customers More
A popular and productive way to leverage mobile apps is to integrate them with social media or your company website. While you can interface with customers via Google Business or Facebook, we’re now seeing many businesses do so right from their website with “chat” features. You can see this in the bottom-right corner of our page, for example. It’s a big help for communicating with folks without having to answer phone calls (or keep people waiting in line).
