Driving revenue with an app
Although revenue is not the sole purpose behind developing an app, any process that can pay for itself is an easy choice. Apps can pay for themselves through cost-savings, as is the case with technology developed for in-house use. They can also pay for themselves by generating increased revenue through direct sales, advertising or marketing potential.
Selling Your App
If your app delivers a unique service or entertainment value, you can sell it in the app store through Apple or Android. Most apps are priced between $1 and $10, but niche apps could be sold for a higher price. In order to generate effective revenue numbers, a direct sale app should bring something unique to the mobile world.
You may be familiar with Pay-Per-Click advertising revenue like Google's Ad words. Companies and individuals can monetize web pages without a need for technical prowess or marketing connections. You can do the same with a mobile app through Apple and Google ad impression campaigns
Most non-technology companies develop applications wtih an eye towards future sales. A large hotel chain may offer a free application that allows users to review rooms, see pictures of different locations and make a reservation. Such an app relies on the growing number of mobile users to generate additional conversions in the reservation space.
No matter how you monetize your app, making your new technology self-sufficient is definitely a high priority in a market where most companies cannot afford additional expenses.
In order to generate revenue or see benefits from a customer-centrist mobile application, you will need a creative branding approach. Why should your customers download this app when they can choose from thousands more?
Even if your app is free, it takes bandwidth to download and takes up space on their device. The app must create value for the customer in order to provide you with benefits in the areas of branding and loyalty.
Provide Information or Service
You can use a mobile application to provide added value for your customer. Service industry companies may develop a simple app that keeps customers appraised of appointment status. A dental office might provide an app that reminds a customer of theirs
Appointment.Even better, an app that integrated an anonymous appointment calendar and showed open appointments could help everyone. A customer looking to reschedule could just take an open slot on the calendar,saving time for the client and the office.
A fun company may want a fun application. A local brand grill could provide a recipe and local trivia app to customers. Clients could access recipes by answering trivia questions about the city, company or local sports team. Each answer brings the client a new recipe, and a full game generates the recipes for an entire meal.
No matter what type of mobile app you developers, it should provide a service, entertainment or option that matches your company's services, vision, and values.
