Benefits of a Marketing App
Personalization for users
The design and development of many Apps is a process focused on getting the highest conversion rate from the users that use them.
The App has to stand out from the rest, with an attractive design that will make the user feel visually involved in its use. The application can have one or several objectives, however, the important thing is to maintain an attractive and easy to navigate interface to improve the user experience.
It can be complicated to design the prototype of the App, that is to say, the visual design with animations, transitions etc. But there is nothing that our UX-UI designer can’t do, and he will use all his talent to give a creative, animated and appealing image to the customer.
The machine learning technologies that we use in Enkronos, allow us to predict what will be the behavior of users in the interface and analyze it automatically, based on pre-established variables. In other words, thanks to the data collected, it will be possible to know when the best time is to send notifications, or to know what kind of products their favorites or what kind of messages are increase the opening of the application.
Imagine, you would have under your control the power to be more efficient and more competitive among companies in the sector, also generating greater recognition of your brand.
A mobile App is the key to reflect the interactions that users have with the published content, that is, engagement. One of the keys to the success of the App is to make the user feel cared for, and that their preferences or tastes are considered. Therefore, another of the benefits of an App is that it allows us to evaluate the participation and the relationship with the public.
The implementation of campaigns with discounts and special promotions are very effective in Apps, as well as offering the opportunity to interact with the content through comments, product evaluations, etc.
Regarding this previous topic, it is proven that launching promotions in your App helps to increase sales because: it increases traffic in the store, rewards App downloads, generates loyalty and commitment to the brand, encourages repeat sales, etc.
We will give you a very clear example, which I’m sure you know: the McDonald’s App. The mobile marketing campaign launched by McDonald’s consisted of being able to buy free fries any Friday throughout the year. The only drawback was that customers had to spend a minimum of $1 and place the order through the App. Once users had downloaded the App, the fast-food chain continued to offer discounts and deals, so that users kept the App installed and built brand loyalty with them. Thanks to this campaign, McDonald’s experienced an increase in daily App usage from 20% to 40% in a matter of months.
Advertising on Google Ads
Thanks to in-app notifications, users will be able to see key messages and thus promote their interaction with the content. We could even include a message section or inbox within your App, to receive information related to the brand. Push notifications are those that appear on the lock screen of cell phones. With these notifications we will get users to reopen the application.
With the incorporation of these functionalities, we will obtain information that will allow us to impact users in other online advertising media such as Google Ads. This will expand the reach of campaigns at different times and environments in relation to the content you are looking for.
In conclusion, we will be able to obtain potential leads as well as to build customer loyalty.
Mobile Application Development Platforms
Sometimes one of the mistakes we can make as marketing managers is to try to attract new customers instead of building loyalty with the ones we already have. Gaining the full trust of a user is difficult, although, once we achieve it, the benefits we can obtain if we continue to support them are very high. A customer to whom we offer continuity, through an App, so that he continues to obtain products repeatedly and is listened to, will always recommend us.
Betting on loyalty is an investment that always pays off, since the cost of keeping a loyal customer is always much lower than that of attracting a new one.
The best advertising is sometimes word of mouth, and if we have happy customers with our brand, we will get them to recommend us to their environment and thus expand the recognition of our brand.
