Mobile Apps for Business Grow as Smartphones and Apps Influence the Ways Consumers Shop
VICTORIA, Australia December, 2012 – Smartphones are revolutionising the way customers shop and search for information about the products that they are interested in. Since these gadgets burst into the scene, makers of mobile apps have done their best to keep up with the demands of consumers for instant information and instant access to purchase power. Using the power of suggestion has become the number one strategy to sway consumers. This phenomenon of mobile apps for business has forever changed the way retailers do business and attract customers, and savvy retailers are spending more time on developing mobile apps that focus on what consumers are looking for online, allowing them to forge a bond and connect with their target clients.
The recently released ‘Report on Mobile Shopping’ from ForeSee Results, a firm which measures customer satisfaction, found that more than 33% of all survey respondents in the United States had accessed a retailer’s website using a mobile phone (compared to 24% in 2009), and an additional 26% said that they plan to use their mobile phone to visit a company’s website, mobile website, or use a mobile application in the future. In other words, more than half of all online shoppers are either already using or plan to use their phones for retail purposes*.
ForeSee Results’ study also found that the use of mobile phones is increasing dramatically, indicating that any retailer who is not wholeheartedly using mobile apps for business is leaving money on the table for competitors*.
Another report from Nielsen found that smartphone ownership had nearly doubled between 2008 and 2009 and Nielsen is forecasting that by 2015, smartphones will be the primary enablers of consumer shopping engagements*.
