The right apps can make all the difference when it comes to increasing sales, but these are some of the most overlooked tools that companies can adopt. While custom mobile app development is always an option, there are also a wide variety of existing applications to choose from.

We’re all familiar with apps these days; we use them all the time. But there are apps you probably haven’t heard of that are useful for business owners. If you’re considering ways to increase sales, here are some mobile apps to try.

The Importance of Mobile App Development

Mobile app development has come a long way, even in recent years. This has allowed smart devices to act as windows to the world, and we rely heavily on mobile apps to stay in touch with our contacts, both near and far. The same is also true for modern business owners. At least, it should be.

Benefits of Mobile Apps

  • Newsletter Subscriptions: to inform customers of new services or products
  • Mobile Appointments: to help users conveniently schedule an appointment with your business
  • Social Referrals: allows your content to be shared on social networks
  • Push Notifications: notify user’s with personalized messages
  • GPS Coupons: motivate people to visit your business through a promotion, discount, or coupon

Here are some mobile apps that can be useful for business owners:

1) Square

This app can facilitate your payment procedure. Using a payment app on your smart device is convenient for customers who don’t carry cash. If you prefer not to accept checks, or would just like to give your clients more options, payments are generated instantly through Square. Customers can choose to have the receipt emailed to them, which is a handy feature as well. We’ve all misplaced important receipts. This app is great if you’re always on the go. It eliminates the need for paper receipts, and processes transactions quickly.

2) CamCard

CamCard is ideal for anyone who relies on networking. If you need a little extra help organizing your contacts, this is the mobile app for you. Do you have a stack of business cards lying around? With CamCard, you can transfer them directly into contacts on your phone just by taking a photo and uploading the image. You can also browse your new contacts in a digital library within the app.

3) Keynote

Depending on your particular industry, Keynote is ideal if you ever need to create presentations. It has tools that allow users to create diagrams and illustrations as part of their slides, edit photos, and also work in real-time whenever collaboration is necessary. There are thirty different themes to choose from, as well as a “rehearse mode” to help you get your presentation just right. If you don’t like giving presentations, Keynote can bolster your confidence.

There are many other business apps to choose from, but custom mobile app development can help your business take things to the next level.
