How the creation of a mobile application impacts your brand?
Mobile devices are everywhere nowadays, and they are used for everything from communicating with family and friends to purchasing products and keeping track of fitness goals. Therefore, mobile apps are a great way to get your brand out there. A mobile app will act as a gateway to your business, and it will be one of the main ways in which customers interact with your brand. Despite this, many small to medium sized businesses are still wary of launching an app. After all, it is a more complex project than a website. However, the right mobile app can be a boon for your marketing campaigns, and it can have a big impact on your brand, which more than offsets the costs. Here is how a mobile app affects your brand:
Presence of logo and brand recognition
Mobile apps are designed to incorporate your branding. If you have a consistent brand across your products, website and social media accounts, this branding will translate perfectly into your app. A brand book would come in handy here because it defines how your brand should present itself in terms of visual aesthetics and messaging across all platforms. Your logo will also be displayed in your app, reinforcing, and creating more awareness of your business.
Word of mouth advertising
A good mobile app can bring a lot of value to your customers’ life. If you can make shopping easier, or if you can implement features that streamline some aspect of your service, your clients will appreciate it and your app very useful. On top of that, if your app is also free, or it has competitive pricing, users will often recommend your app to their friends and family. In this way, you can tap into word of mouth advertising, which costs nothing, except for the price of building the app itself. Word of mouth advertising is particularly strong because it comes with a built-in testimonial and recommendation from someone that the potential user trusts.
A unified brand design has many benefits, ranging from higher client retention to higher conversion rates and brand recognition. If you already have loyal clients that follow you on social media and enjoy your blog posts, onboarding them onto your app will be easier with a unified brand design. Similarly, any clients that find your business through your app will have a much easier time with your other content avenues if you have a unified brand.
