Started 2020 and so out of nowhere it seems that everything and everyone would have to be prepared to operate remotely. It does not matter if you sell products or services, if you are an employee in a dependency relationship or an independent professional. Virtuality took over our lives and both homeworking and ecommerce became our present and will undoubtedly be our future.
According to the report The Coronavirus on App Install and Marketing Budget of Apps Flyer during the month of April, the installation of mobile applications increased by 29%. A study carried out in Argentina by the consulting firm Kantar reported that sales by electronic means went from 44% to 61% and that 73% of users assured that they would maintain this modality to make their purchases.
Starting and keeping a business operating, whether it is goods or services, requires both economic and human resources (both scarce in this moment of contingency), the companies that have been least impacted by the isolation measures have been those that were prepared to digitally operate both your sales and your internal and external communications
If you are thinking of a low investment business, an E-commerce app may be an alternative for you. Developing an ecommerce space will not only be much cheaper and more competitive than a physical location, it will also allow it to operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. There are multiple platforms to develop them, however there are 3 keys that must be taken into account when implementing it:
Development and maintenance costs: Costs can vary due to various variables. There are platforms that are maintained at a monthly cost, others that charge commissions on sales made, some can be paid annually with a discount for prompt payment or for the number of contracted apps and others combine all of the above. On the other hand, there are tailor-made developments and their costs will depend on the requirements of each company.
Usability: three out of every four online purchases are made on mobile devices, which is why the system you choose must be optimally mobile. In order to get an idea of the importance of this data, it is necessary to consider that the statistics indicate that there are 4 billion connected mobile devices in the world (this is 112% of the total population of the planet !!!!!). For all this, it is highly recommended that it be developed as a Native App.
Communication: e-commerce is not limited only to sale, this is actually its ultimate goal. The sale is a process that is built and an e-commerce space has to be a space where efficient communication can be generated to provide good customer service in both the pre-sale and post-sale phase. At this point the dynamism of push messages becomes relevant
Mobile applications are an excellent tool to digitize your business whether you are selling professional services or physical products. A native application allows customers to access comfortably, they are a meeting point between potential customers and the company and a loyalty space that allows permanent communication with those who have already purchased. E-commerce applications are ideal for businesses such as warehouses, drugstores, delivery stores, bookstores, professional services such as consultants, coaches, etc.
