The Advantages of Mobile Apps

GIVE YOUR CUSTOMERS YOUR CUSTOM CELL PHONE APP!

Let your customers stay connected on the go!

With smart phones becoming incredibly popular, we’ve decided to offer custom mobile apps! We can develop apps for both Android and iOS (iPhone & iPod Touch) platforms. Mobile apps are a great way for customers to stay connected with your business, providing valuable information and updates about your business all on the go in the palm of their hand. Your customers can find your app and download it for free (or charge them if you’d like). Below is a great article that further explains mobile apps and their advantages.
Surfing the web on a cell phone is tricky and annoying at times, so why not make it easy on your customers. Have an app that displays your hours, directions, menu, inventory, or anything at all. The possibilities are endless and will set your business apart from others.

Contact us today and see how we can help take your business to the next level!

 

More and more of our interaction online occurs on mobile devices. Over five billion mobile subscribers – about 77% of the world’s population – are online (Source: The International Telecommunication Union). This new type of simple access for consumers is catching on with a staggering amount of smartphone owners purchasing goods and services from their phone – 41% to be exact, as found in a survey by Chadwick Martin Bailey, 2011.

So how do you capitalize on this new mobile technology? The answer is relatively simple: set up a mobile application and/or set up your website to be natively friendly to mobile browsing.

Mobile Apps are internet applications designed to run on smartphones and other mobile devices. According to webopedia.com, mobile applications help users by connecting them to Internet services more commonly accessed on desktop or notebook computers. While opportunities abound, we have identified three advantages of using mobile apps for your business: speed, volume of information, and advertising.

Let’s face it, we live in a not-so-patient society. We know what we want and we want it now. Most of us can’t count the times we have sat waiting for our computers to take over one minute to boot up and have found our patience tested. Mobile Apps take the “wait” out of mobile. Since most, if not all, of the information is stored within the application, there’s no need to wait on loading information over a slow 3G connection. Plus, what little information needs to be updated can be done in the background, allowing you to access other information while you wait on the app to load. In fact, mobile apps are becoming so functional and popular among consumers, a Forrester Research report (FORR) predicted that by 2015, nearly half of all corporate-issued devices will be mobile!

Here in the US, we’re tied down by our internet speeds. While technologies for “4G” networks are growing, we’re still years behind other countries like Japan. For now, it’s just not feasible to store all your information on the internet. Mobile Apps, however, are great for storing larger amounts of information, such as videos and catalogues. And since the information is stored within the app, the user’s experience will be greatly enhanced.

Bulletin Board advertising has been long rampant. But how effective is it? Like most people, you will likely forget the majority of billboards you pass on the way to your home or office. Mobile Apps, however, provide a form of advertising that you can carry in your pocket. The good news for business owners is that this new form of marketing via mobile apps is growing fast with no sign of slowing down. Consider the fact that in 2009, a mere 23% of people owned smartphones, compared to today’s 35% (Source: Neilson). This means that one-third of Americans have the potential to be reached through mobile devices, creating a world of advertising possibilities for business owners to seize.

How to Deisgn a Vinyl Banner For Your Business!

Businesses use vinyl banners to communicate messages such as grand openings, sales events, new product announcements and similar promotions-oriented messages. Because vinyl banners can be hung up on grommets, the circular metal holes in the body of the banner, they can also be taken down with relative ease. The ability to add and remove vinyl banners without the need for extensive construction makes them well-suited to convey limited-time messages. Although you will ultimately need to work with a printing professional (such as PrintSavage.com) to get your banner produced, you can do much of the preparation required to design a vinyl banner on your own.

 

Instructions

    • 1

      Choose the message. The text for a vinyl banner should convey your marketing message, and the message should be short. A message such as “Now Open,” “Halloween Specials,” “50% Off All Lamps,” or similarly short messages that suit your purpose is your target. Limit text to six words.

    • 2

      Choose the contact information. Depending on the nature of your business and the intended location of your banner, you may want to include your business’s street address, web address or phone number. For example, if the banner will be hung outside your business, you can skip the street address and go with a phone number. Choose only one.

    • 3

      Choose the colors. Vinyl banners are not the place for subtle design; choose bold colors rather than pale ones, and choose primary colors over pastels. Colors printed on vinyl should be solids; stripes, checkers and other intricate color combinations may not print well on vinyl.

    • 4

      Choose the layout. Vinyl banners can be printed in a variety of shapes and sizes; the layout for your text and graphics will depend on the shape of the banner you want. The National Business Association points out the type of software used to produce vinyl banners is often more complex than consumer-oriented software applications such as Microsoft Word. For this reason, it can be helpful to hire a professional designer to finalize the layout after you have all the information for the banner assembled.

Why do you need business cards?

Why is it so important to have a business card?
The business card is your/your company’s face for the client, the way that they will (or not) remember you. Besides its main function (provide contact info) the business card should be a quick representation of what you do in a memorable and creative way. It can add status and value to your work, making your service be noticed for its quality. Give a good card and people will be impressed, keep it, and remember you when they need your services. Always take your business cards with you, we never know when we’re going to meet a potential client.

Important communication aspects

As its main function is giving your contact info, they should be up to date. May seem simple, but be sure that people will find you with those informations. It’s also important to have a web site to show your services/products if it’s possible, like an online portfolio. Do not forget to say exactly what you do, people must see your profession and services, because they may not remember you but they have the card to tell them.

That is a lot to handle, why add even more advertising costs and stress on top of all that? We at PrintSavage have put a lot of thought into that, which is why we started our online print shop.When it comes to launching a business, the most common difficult aspect to handle is advertising your company and getting noticed. What types of advertising works the best? How do I target my potential customers? Where do I buy all my advertising supplies? How much is this going to cost me? All these questions are asked on a daily basis from our customers. It seems there is a lot of uncertainty because advertising tends to get extremely expensive with no guarantee that it will pay off. This inspired us to launch the most affordable online print shop possible, while still providing great quality to help get your business noticed.
