How Your Business Longevity is Increasingly Tied to Mobile
As expected, the mobile web traffic is growing exponentially, beginning to compete with desktop web traffic. What does this mean for your business?
Every day, more people are using their mobile devices to seek information, consume news, shop online and more. Therefore, It is critical to incorporate an enhanced mobile strategy to your company’s long term vision to ensure the long-term success of your business.
Moving from Web to mobile
A web presence is paramount for a company to communicate their vision, and connect and engage their end users. If your business happens to be rooted in sales or retail, eCommerce also begins to be particularly important, as online shopping continues to surge. Therefore, most businesses have already allocated or planned set budget for their web presence.
Mobile traffic is the new cool kid in town who is getting all the attention for the right reasons but, as a business owner, you may be struggling to stay relevant with the rapidly changing trends and tech. With a large number of the users migrating to a mobile platform, it is more important than ever to plan and allocate resources appropriately to stay ahead of the competition. You may need to start considering allocating part of your budget into a mobile strategy.
It pays to get ahead
First-mover advantage in the mobile space can completely turn the existing market on its head. Uber and AirBnB are the classic examples of the disruption in long-standing (taxi and hotel) industries which were traditionally bogged down with the excessive regulations and the barriers to entry.
Now that the focus is shifted to everything mobile, how do companies make sure their strategies align with the long-term vision and goals of their company so that don’t get left behind like the taxi industry? And what’s more, how do you choose between the web apps or native phone apps?
In terms of web vs native apps, the ultimate decision will come down to the set of features that your customers will use on their mobile devices (you can read all about the differences between the two in one of our earlier blogs).
