BeRelevantYou Need to be Seen on a Mobile Device to be Relevant
A recent article from Comscore, one of the industry's most referenced sources, shows that Mobile Apps are now utilized more minutes per month than PCs to access the internet.  This is based on information from February 2013 - January 2014, increasing monthly.
People are increasingly active and more mobile, so this makes complete sense. The graph shows something far more significant which is actually left out of the article.  If you are thinking of mobile-optimizing your web site, you better think twice, as that is yesterday's news.
People are spending more of their time in apps than in browsers on the mobile device to a tune of500% and growing.  What does this mean for your business?
It means consumers are more likely to find your business and engage with it from purpose-built mobile applications than from mobile web-sites.   When people search for and engage with friends they use the Facebook app, when they look for information on current events they use the Twitterapp.
When people want to know what is trending in their local community and they want to find a local deal, event or fund-raiser, they use the dealsnapt app.
Purpose-built apps are happening, are simpler, more robust, and get results more quickly. Stats don't lie and comScore is an authority for online stats.

AppUpdateHave you tried out our new features?

  Spin2Win is a game to use at your location to instantly increase engagement.   Winning encourages your customers to share with their social networks and purchase more, more often.  You define the rewards offered and you set the winning odds.  The game can be enabled or disabled by the business owner at any time.   Read more about Spin2Win here!   Schedule a NO-Obligation Demo Today    

   
Reward your most loyal customers by offering them exclusive content, events or specials.   You can send exclusive offers to users who FOLLOW your business.   This content can be shared with friends via text message, email and social media, but can only be redeemed by the friend when they FOLLOW your business as well.   This is a great mechanism to grow your loyal customer base virally.
 
In future releases, you will have the ability to send exclusive offers to consumers based on a variety of group memberships and/or activity levels (i.e. how much they have spent, how often they share, like or comment on you, how many times they've come in, how long elapsed since their last visit, etc.)
