How Appsme Can Increase Your Customer Base

OK, so you're a small business and you want to jump into the wide world of social media. Why would you want to do that? Well, according to a recent study done by the Internet Advertising Bureau, 90% of customers will recommend a brand after having a social media interaction with that brand. In fact, four out of five consumers were more inclined to buy a product after simply being exposed to a company's social media at all. Social media is big business these days.

But one thing many businesses struggle with is where to begin. Sure you can ask your clients to like you on Facebook, or follow you on Twitter, or check in on Foursquare, or pin one of your photos to Pinterest... but all of these require you to have already set up a Facebook page, and a Twitter profile, and so on and so on. A big effort for business owners who may or may not be technically savvy!

Engaging with customers online can be tough, with or without established social media pages - but that's where Appsme comes in! Not only does an Appsme app help your customers keep up with your business, but the built-in share feature makes it super easy for them to share your app with all of their friends on Facebook or Twitter!  If you don't have any social media pages then there's nothing to fear - your customers can share your app regardless and enable all their friends to download your app with just one click. Of course if you do have social media pages set up, we've got you covered there, too! Link your app with your Facebook and Twitter pages for an even richer customer experience.

So what are you waiting for? If you're interested in growing your customer base - and what business owner isn't?! - then make an app for your business today! Make your app now

Appsme Launches In-App Deals Feature

We know a lot of you have been waiting for this announcement and here it is! Today we are launching Appsme Deals, a brilliant new feature that can be added to all apps - new or existing - and lets you offer your customers exclusive deals, on your terms, via your mobile app.

Setting up deals in your app is a snap. If you’re building a new app, simply add the shiny new ‘Deals’ feature to your app in the Features section. If you’re adding Deals to an existing app, just click on the ‘Add more features’ link on Your Apps.

Then just tell us a bit about the deal such as the product, discount price, instructions on how to claim and an optional photo. You can add up to 20 deals. Once you’ve finished adding your deal (or deals if you’re feeling generous!) it will appear the next time the app is launched, just waiting to be claimed...

If you have yet to start your free 14 day trial with us, now that you can incentivize your customers to download the app for all the latest and greatest deals, maybe it’s a good time to give it a try?!
