What’s the most effective way to get people to say “YES” to your product or services?

You might say social media or email marketing, and in the past, that might have been true.

However, there’s no secret that growing and maintaining an engaged social media following is super difficult to do nowadays. With Facebook and Instagram wanting you to run PAID ads to get your content shown to YOUR OWN audience, it’s quite near impossible to grow an engaged following organically.

You might be thinking, “Okay, but what about email marketing? That’s still effective, right?”

WRONG.

Email marketing used to be very effective, so effective in fact, that EVERYONE started doing it. Now, it’s so oversaturated, you’d be lucky to get a 10% open rate on your emails.

I found myself with this dilemma not too long ago. I thought, “There HAS to be a more effective way to market my business nowadays”.

So, I started researching.

Specifically, I started researching marketing tactics that would give me complete control over my audience and the content they are shown.

You see, with social media marketing, your content is shown to a very small percentage of your audience. With spam folders and filters on emails, a big chunk of your email subscribers aren’t getting your content either.

However, through much research, I finally found a solution: MOBILE APPS.

Why mobile apps?

  • Your users can easily access you and your content in seconds
  • You get to control the platform and the content that’s shown on it
  • You have the ability to send push notifications that pop up directly on your users’ phones.

The only problem with this solution is that mobile apps are SUPER EXPENSIVE to build and maintain (I’m talking like $30k-$70k MINIMUM). That is, until now.

I discovered that although mobile apps seemed to be the perfect solutions for small business owners to use to market their business, very few of them have the means to build a mobile app.

That’s why I created 22apps.

WHAT IS 22apps?

22apps is the first state-of-the-art drag and drop app building software that allows you to build an app for your business easily and affordably. It uses drag and drop elements (sort of like Shopify or Wix, but in an app format) to build your app and it’s completely customizable so you can make your app really look and feel like your brand.

22apps allows you to house all of your content – videos, podcasts, blogs, resources, etc. all in one place. It’s like a little home for your business! Your users will be able to access your content in seconds and, since your app will take up real estate on their phone screen, they will be more likely to interact with you and your content more often.

22apps also allows you to send customized push notifications to your users, reminding them to register for your webinar, check out your new blog post, or purchase your new course. Push notifications are highly effective at boosting sales and engagement through your app – better than social media marketing and email marketing combined!

With our app building software, you will also be able to take your already high converting marketing funnels and build them into your app.

The possibilities are really endless with 22apps. We currently have an extensive list of features and benefits for our 22apps users and are already working on new features to be released over the course of the next few years.

 

OKAY, SO…WHY SHOULD YOU CARE?

I know all these features sound great, but if you’re still thinking to yourself, “Do I really need an app for my business?”

Let me answer you with a resounding “YES”.

As I mentioned before, the 2 most effective ways of marketing in the past are slowly proving themselves to be less and less effective at growing your biz.

Social media and email marketing have both become overly saturated and don’t give you the ability to house and distribute your content in a way that you want.

Having an app is important for successfully growing your business because it gives you a place to:

  • House content
  • Post updates to your users
  • Send reminders you KNOW your audience will see
  • Constantly be on your users’ minds since they will see your app whenever they open their phone.

You want your business to STAND OUT from your competitors, that’s why you need a mobile app.

I know that sounds intimidating. I mean, where do you even begin?

Good news: 22apps allows you to build your app quickly, easily, and inexpensively.

You don’t have to hire a professional coder to build your app for you – you can do it completely on your own for a much, much lower price. In fact, it’s completely FREE to get started with 22apps. You can build and publish your very own app without ever paying a penny; only upgrade when you’re ready!

Having an app can open so many doors for you and your business. In the next few years, I can envision almost every business having its very own app. If you’re a small business owner, this is the perfect time to get ahead of the crowd and start building your very own app with 22apps!
