Local business mobile app development gives you access to a hot, rapidly growing market of Apple and Android smartphone and tablet users. This is a market of well educated people on the go who make fast buying decisions and spend money liberally.
Mobile Apps can be developed with push notifications to your opt-in SMS texting list where conversions to leads and customers can skyrocket. Text messaging is associated with a greater than 98% open rate.
Boost Leads & Customers with Your Mobile App
Some mobile apps allow you to send push notifications with offers and information to those who have agreed to receive text messages from you. Text messages have an open rate greater than 98%.
Mobile Apps should not be confused with a mobile version of a website. Unlike a website which can be viewed from any browser, Mobile Apps must be downloaded – usually from the Apple Store (iPhone apps) or Google Play Store (android apps).
If you decide that a mobile app is for you, we will show you how to get a hybrid app that includes push notifications and is customized and branded for your business.
- Mobile users will download and use your app if you promote it with an incentive with perceived value to them.
- With the right ongoing strategies, mobile apps can effectively reach and convert your hot market, escalating sales and growing your profits.
- Most apps are developed to work with a particular mobile platform such as android, apple or windows. If you want your app to be available for each type of device, it will require separate development, hosting and management.
- Some hybrid apps work on both android and apple devices which represents considerable cost savings.
Not to Be Confused with Mobile Websites
More About Mobile Apps for Local Business

We can offer you apps for both Apple and Android devices – reducing the costs for development and hosting.
Push notification from your app can be used to promote and provide access to white papers, forms, important updates, coupons, special offers and events – opportunities to provide value for your market while strengthening your brand and customer loyalty.
Get your app listed in app directories to expand your market reach. Directories put your app in front of millions of customers on iTunes, the App Store, the iBooks Store, and the Mac App Store. Google Apps for Business, Education, or a Government domain can have a Private Channel on the Google Play Store.
Apps that Brand
Distributing a free app related to your local business or real estate services is a great strategy for increasing your brand, generating leads and acquiring more customers in your marketing region. An important part of this strategy is to offer something of value with frequent updates sent through push notifications to your SMS list. For Realtors, this might be open houses and featured properties of the week. For local service providers, it might be a deal of the week. Local Business SMS Strategic planning is important for obtaining a good response and ROI.
