Why Do I Need a Mobile App?


Too Mobile App or not? That really is the question these days, as the humble Mobile App is taking the planet by storm, but how do you know if a Mobile App is right for your business or organization? According to Knoxweb, some companies may not need a Mobile App while for others, it is absolutely necessary.

If you already have a mobile responsive website, you may not need a mobile app, however as Knoxweb explains sometimes a mobile responsive website isn’t enough to attract new clients and customers.

Twelve years ago, businesses and organizations were asking Knoxweb if they really needed a website. In fact, because Knoxweb has been in business since 1996, convincing companies that the World Wide Web was the way of the future was tough. Back then, businesses and organizations had no idea that they really needed a website, because they didn’t understand it’s potential.

To be fair, back then Facebook, Yelp, YouTube and Groupon didn’t exist. In fact, digital photography was not even available to the average Joe, so most of the websites on the net didn’t look that great, because of the available technology, however, most smart business owners knew the potential of a website.

Back then, businesses didn’t depend on a website or the internet, but without a website today, you would be dead in the water. Those businesses that built a web presence in the early days benefited when clients and customers shifted their behaviors to digital.

Knoxweb will tell you that companies and organizations who believe that they do not need a Mobile App because they have a mobile friendly site could be missing out.

Ask yourself this. When was the last time that one of your potential clients or existing customers actually took a photo of one of your products with your website? A Mobile App is really the only way that can occur.

You may want to ask yourself when the last time was that your website actually notified a potential client or customer about a sale when they walked by your storefront, and when the last time was that your website told you and your business how a client felt when your product was viewed for the first time.

Ask yourself when the last time your website told your business the name of a customer who just entered your store, and when was the last time that your website adjusted a price on a product or service based on social influence by a customer.

Cameras, geo-locations, biometrics, augmented reality, sensors, and three-dimensional gaming are the game changers that are already in existence when it comes to mobile apps. These are features that you will never find on a traditional website, and if that isn’t enough to convince you to schedule an appointment with Knoxweb for a Mobile App, then maybe the fact that new functionalities that haven’t even been thought of yet will be available much sooner than mobile apps for HTML based websites, which might never happen.
