Why you should have a Mobile App for E-Commerce / Shopify Stores?
A) As per leading industry researches:
1- The overall conversion rate on an app was 120 percent higher than mobile browsers.
2 - Shoppers using mobile apps browsed 286 percent more products than mobile web shoppers, contributing to an add-to-basket rate 90 percent higher than mobile browsers.
3 - Mobile apps accounted for 54 percent of all mobile transactions in the retail industry, and 58 percent of mobile transactions in the travel industry.
B) There are 2.3 billion smartphones now (2017), this will grow by approximately to 3 billion smartphones by 2020.
37% of total global population will start using smartphone by 2020
52% of total phone will be smartphone by 2019
World is adopting smartphones faster than ever. Most of the ecommerce customers will soon have a smartphone.
C) Great User Experience
Ease of use on native apps is far better than a mobile friendly website. Some of the great features are possible only on native apps, like adding products to wishlist, sharing on chat messengers etc.
D) Make your store viral
Let user share the products on WhatsApp, Facebook messenger and other chat platforms. This will make your online store go viral in no time. Make best use of social media.
E) Customer Loyalty
A loyal customer always look for a mobile app so that she does not miss any important update from your store. Other side of the coin is that a user tends to become the loyal user when she installs your app.
Take your brand to new heights by launching a mobile app for your ecommerce store. There are only few online stores which have launched their own mobile app. This is a good differentiator for you.
G) Push Notifications
Have you launched new products?, started sales offers, or have some other important messages? Push Notifications are best way to reach out to customers. Emails are no longer good as most of them land up in Spam folder.
H) Use of device features
Users can use many device features. E.g. a user can directly call you or email you from mobile app.
I) Analyze user behavior by using Analytics
Advanced Analytics is integrated with the App. Use this analytics to create more engaging content and define your strategy to reach out to more users.
J) But Shopify is a mobile friendly website, Why do I need a mobile app?
There are some fundamental differences between two:
1- Website is for attracting new customers while app is for creating loyal customers
2- On website you need to open the browser, enter the website URL while app is just a tap away.
3- On website the customer comes, completes the activity and exits while on app the communication is two-way and ongoing.
4- Websites are more responsive to search queries but apps provides engagement, loyalty, and ease of use. App "lives" on user's device.
5- The most successful marketers use their mobile website to attract new customers and convince them to download the app, creating an opportunity for profitable & ongoing relationship.
