Company President Martin Walker explains “We kept getting more and more requests from our existing clients so we decided to add it to our product line.” The new product offering also includes mobile website design and mobile marketing. “As Mark Zuckerberg was just quoted as saying, in his recent purchase of the Oculus Rift product “mobile is the current platform”, Walker adds.
The custom app development product is designed for the small business and priced very competitively. Custom app development used to cost anywhere between $10,000.00 and $20,000.00, according to Walker, now the cost of a custom app is a fraction of that price.
An App is a small program that resides on a smartphone. The app can contain many different functions and features, including information about the company, location (map), tap-to-call, product ordering, like Ecommerce or ordering food from menu and much more.
The cost of the development and launch of a custom app is a low one time cost and then a monthly hosting fee. The hosting fee is required in order to run some of the more robust features. Custom coding is also available for small businesses who may want some additional functionality.
Custom Apps can be downloaded and installed onto thousands of interested customers and when push notifications are sent out everyone who has the App installed will see the message. Data suggests that push notes have a 97% readability rate, as opposed to 26% with text and 7% with email.
“Apps are the future for the next few years we believe” says Walker, “and we wanted to be a part of this technology so we can continue to help small businesses market their products and services in the most cost effective manner as possible.”
Some of the biggest markets for custom apps have been Attorneys, Restaurants, Non-Profit Organizations and really any businesses with a large, or potentially large and/or loyal customer base.
“A Custom App really puts the customer closer to the business” adds Walker, “closer than text or email, and our low monthly hosting fees usually include unlimited push notifications, which can save the small business even more on their marketing costs.” Walker added.
