Get new customers using these trendy apps. Check out this list of (some unexpected) apps that can get you new customers at your business.
Technology plays a major part in running your business. From social media to your website, you have heard it time and time again. As more people use their mobile devices to access websites and search for businesses, your mobile presence is important. Mobile applications have become more useful for small business owners. The Silver Rock Funding Team thinks these 3 apps can help you get new customers:
You have likely heard of it by now. Pokemon Go, the location-based game everyone is using on their phones. The app is soon to surpass the number of daily active users on Twitter. Many small business owners have realized that there is a way to capitalize off of the game and bring in new customers.
The mobile game from the Japanese cartoon franchise, uses GPS tracking and mobile phone cameras to capture tiny animals called Pokemon.
Some small business owners are paying a $10 daily fee for digital items that lure customers into their business. Items to purchase include animals, gyms (for training), and more. One business boasted a 75% spike in sales over the last few days. This summer when it comes to customers, you “gotta catch them all.”
We are sure you have heard of the San Francisco-based company. For years they have been a platform for crowd-sourced reviews for businesses like yours. If you run a local business, chances are that you can benefit from Yelp. The company has had its share of controversy. Small businesses owners and customers have both criticized the way the website and accompanying application vets reviews. However, there are ways that you can get new customers using Yelp.com.
First, claim your business page. You want to have ownership so that you can interact with customers and control the information about your business. Next, embellish your page with photographs of your space, menu items, or inventory. Lastly, add discounts and promotions. You can add discount coupons and offers to your Yelp Business page.
