Should You Develop an App for Your E-commerce Store?

Mario Hachem, Contributor, Oct 05 2016

Research reveals that a simple optimized e-commerce website is not enough to promote sales and visibility. You really need an app that can work effectively on an Android or iOS based phone and allows you to update your e-business portal whenever and wherever you want. Nothing puts your brand and products front and center like a mobile app that the customer sees every time they use their phone. Apps become like the virtual eyes, ears, and arms of the shopper -- these tools are with them everywhere, always. That makes mobile apps a powerful tool for building and nurturing loyal customers. Here’s the first argument: when polled, 78% of users said they would rather access their favorite shopping sites via a mobile app than through their mobile browsers. Apps make the shopping experience faster, more secure, and users never have to worry about remembering a URL or logging in each time they want to see what's new or place their usual order.

We at TEDMOB encourage all our customers to develop a mobile application for their E- commerce business because mobile application is the new phenomenon that e-commerce retailers are considering massively to enrich the shopping experience of the consumers.
