Is Living Without The Smartphone Now An Impossibility?
Hi and welcome to AJM Web Services.
Today it possible to control almost every aspect of our lives from our smart phones. There are of course a few exceptions (Siri is female but that is not a replacement for the Mrs and the dog would never get a walk …) but broadly speaking we can do so much with our shiny bright screens that it seems impossible to go anywhere without them.
Slowly we are being brainwashed into bringing them into our lives ever more – here’s a few examples (some of which naturally require purpose built appliances)
- Control your lighting, central heating using an app.
- Manage the contents of your fridge.
- Cook your Sunday Roast.
- Have your laundry all freshly ready for you to hang up when you arrive home
- Buy your weekly groceries without ever leaving your sofa.
- Get recommendations on tradesmen etc from Facebook from local groups
- Order Christmas and Birthday gifts without the hassle of the shops.
It truly is fantastic, although most of us could not afford the cost of owning some of those appliances, it does not make it any less amazing.
More and more business owners are taking their businesses further by using a mobile app to promote their offers instead of or as well as Social Media. Take the restaurant sector for example, owners can have their own app for food ordering or reservations instead of paying fees to a third party, and send push messages to all their customers in a flash.
The main difference being that sending push messages reaches everyone whereas posting on Facebook reaches a very small percentage of followers and gains little engagement without paying for adverts.
Now try leaving your home for work or leisure without your smart phone. Do you feel naked and lost? Many people do, but a huge percentage those under the age of 25 would have no idea how to communicate with their friends, colleagues and family if they were unphoned…
Now tell me – are we being brainwashed or is all of this within our control any more?
Mobile App Design Or A Mobile Website?
We Can Help You With Your Project Today…
Let Us Start Talking About Your Requirements Today!
The real question is – how important is it for me to have my own mobile application designed for my business?
With a mobile app you are immediately saying to your clients and customers that your business is high tech and up-to-date.
They will always have your app on their phone, they will not need to search the web for your products or services.
Also, you will be able to market the services or products you sell in new and exciting ways such as push notifications.
Or simply monetise a mobile app to create a new revenue stream that can help your growing and expanding business.
Having your app in Google Play Store and iTunes App Store will also ensure that your brand is seen by a whole load of new potential customersodrastically increasing your exposure and visibility and credibility.
On The Other Hand – Am I Better Off Having A Fully Responsive Website Instead?
The Truth Is, Probably Yes –
Unless your needs are unique and the business is dependent on certain factors that make having a mobile application crucial to success (such as a digital games developer) then you are better off having a truly responsive mobile website that will do the job for you, look amazing and cost you thousands less to produce.
And never forget that there are all sorts of possibilities that can turn your perfect mobile website into an app that can be seen on Google Play and App Store without having to spend more than a few hundred pounds to get there.
So, by all means engage us in a conversation about making your mobile application, but bear in mind the above.
