By this time, you’ve probably heard your share on the importance of having an online presence for businesses. A good website, accounts on major social media sites, etc. But today we’ll focus on something that gets more and more important by the day: App development for your business.
What is an app? Basically, an application is a software program designed to perform a specific function. There are two types of Apps: the mobile app (the ones you use every day on your phone) and the web app (ones you’ve used without noticing, probably). Web applications are accessed through a browser just like a website but there’s something fundamental that makes them different: the primary function of a web page is providing information, while a web application performs a specific task, like for example letting you access your email or provide an online shopping service.
The great differences between websites and apps (for both mobile and web) cause their creation, use and look to be very different too. A website is usually made of static elements with occasional images and videos to make them more interesting. An app must be interactive and dynamic, making it easy for the user to complete the task the app was designed for.
There are many things to say about app development that we can go about in depth later. But for the business owner seeking to grow, what’s important to know? First, that having an app that can make your product or service more easily available for your potential client would make a huge boost to your sales. Second, for your business app to be successful you need to know your customers very well, and think how could an app help you get your product or service to them. Third, consider the design of the App itself a vital part of how your business presents itself to your customers, since it will become the deciding factor of them engaging with your company or not.
