Mobile eCommerce is as important to business today as online stores started to become a decade ago. It makes sense as a natural progression. After all, just as eCommerce sprung from a maturing world wide web, mobile retail grew from the uptake of smartphones and data networks.
This progression led to certain customer expectation which in turn drives retail strategy. Thus, mobile eCommerce becomes more of a “must-have” for retailers to remain competitive.
every small business should have an app! It’s affordable, easy and a must have nowadays.
Why do Small and Medium Business (SMB) need mobile apps?
Which benefits does an app bring for small and medium sized businesses?
The advantages of apps are versatile, from consumer retention to extra revenue.
“176 million! That is the number of users who have joined the social media population in 2015.
41% of that population have shopped for their favorite products through online medium.”
The explosion of mobile over the last few years has been staggering. By next year, the twenty billionth mobile phone will be sold.
And not only are there many more mobile devices, we’re all becoming more reliant on them. In fact, 9 out of 10 consumers in the U.S. keep their phones within reach 24/7.
Not only are significantly more users accessing the web from a tablet or smartphone than a desktop, they are doing so with more eCommerce intent than ever before. During last year’s busy holiday shopping season, a third of all online purchases came from smartphone users. Not even Black Friday was immune to mobile fever, as nearly 40% of sales on the traditionally brick and mortar shopping day came via a mobile device. That’s up almost 10% from the previous year.
We are deeply committed to driving digital innovation and transformation for our clients worldwide, positioning them to grow market share, improve customer satisfaction and retention, and increase revenue.
