Mobile Apps Boost Customer Retention

Delaware mobile appsBring your customers back for repeat business!
Mobile Apps offer small businesses an inexpensive tool to compete with larger competitors and national chains. Your customers will always be just a tap away!

Download Attraction LLC App
My own app demonstrates most of the available 20+ features that can be included for a low monthly fee and affordable one-time set-up cost. On your smartphone, download Attraction app or call me to set up a time for a live demo. You’ll score your first reward in my loyalty rewards program, just for downloading it. That’s a great sample of how you can entice your own customers to see the value in downloading your app. But you’ll need to publicize it by having a page similar to mine on your website, along with prominent links on Home page or all pages to download your app. I create that page for my clients, along with a poster that they can display in their storefront window, at their front desk, handed out directly, or even emailed. Some examples of what you’d highlight:

  • Restaurants & pizza shops can offer online food ordering or reservations.
  • Salons & fitness centers can allow appointment scheduling and display photo gallery.
  • Non-profits and associations can list events and make donations easy.
  • Real Estate Agents can offer one tap access to property listings and send timely push notifications.
  • Bars & Clubs & Coffee Shops can offer Loyalty coupon programs & event schedules.

small business mobile appsEach feature has a number of options. For example, a pizza shop can include delivery, pick up or dine in or any combination of those. They can accept credit card payment via the app, accept cash, or either one. Either a custom ordering system or an existing third party platform such as grubHub, olo, yelpEat24 or iMenu360. A custom delivery radius can be set up around your location so that people out of your area will only have pick-up option. Once they’ve ordered once, the likelihood of repeat business increases dramatically.

More Repeat Business, More Referrals

Show your customers all of the features and tell them to watch for app-only specials! The loyalty rewards feature allows several different promotions to run simultaneously so there is something for everyone. For example, a pizza shop could give rewards per slice of pizza or per pizza or both.

Rank on Page One of Google

video results rank well in googleIt’s critical to rank on the first page of Google search results if you want to generate traffic to your website. Less than 10% of people advance to Page 2. Combine that with the fact that Organic Listings receive 90% of clicks and you see how vital it is to be on that page.

Since videos are 41% more likely to be clicked that plain text, having a video appear will help you dominate the search results for your important keywords.

But our Results go WAY Beyond That! What good is a video unless it ultimately gets the viewer (YOUR NEXT CUSTOMER) to take action? We can have your new customer join your text list, email list, like your facebook page etc. while receiving an offer that we design together that compels the viewer to contact you and do business.

Drive TARGETED traffic to your website, using keywords your prospects are searching for!

Google Maps
Your Google My Business profile can appear on page one if you can get yourself into the top 3 spots on the map (which displays above actual organic results). Just claim your listing, add details and photos, and above all, request reviews from happy customers. This can boost you into one of those coveted top 3 spots and generate free traffic.
