Marketing Using Mobile APPs

Consumer Based Marketing and APPS No ratings yet.

Consumer is king – yes, we all heard it and know it.

Today however the old belief that Product, Placing and Pricing was the key to that consumer is as old as VHS tapes and 8 track tapes.

Today the smart phone has changed how the King (The Consumer) buys.  It not where you place your product or hare-you-good-at-sexting-may-29-2012-600x400ow you price it.  Today it’s about the relationship you have with them. 

You see to many consumers the cell phone has become a very personal and intimate thing.  Many report actually sleeping with their phones within less than 2 feet from them every night.  Taking the phone everywhere – even the bathroom.  That’s pretty intimate!!!

So if you think you’re going to just build and APP and consumers will simply download and you get rich.  Think again my friend.  Your wanting a permanent space in a very intimate world. 

The key is customer engagement!  The days of a flyer are gone with VHS tapes.  Today you must give the customer precedence in your business.

You must engage them opinionin what they like, what they want, when they want it.  Or simply they will go somewhere else and get it.  Right from their phones.

Customers, Patients, Clients all want information when seek it.  Not by chance see it on an ad.  They may buy at 2 am if your shop is closed – guess what – they will go somewhere else.  The customer has a right to know, be heard, be informed.
