Mobile App Development

Mobile App Development Outsourcing

Custom mobile apps to increase consumer awareness of small business brands are growing exponentially. As of the end of 2011, consumers are spending, on average, 94 minutes per day on mobile apps. With more emphasis on social media sites and more of them building mobile apps to attract new users, your business can tap into this trend by outsourcing to create mobile apps that will appeal to your target customer.

More and more in mobile app development, mobile apps developers are creating a conduit to popular social media sites and apps as they build mobile apps for small businesses like yours. For instance, if you and your mobile apps developer are working on a decorating app for your real estate business, it can be customized to integrate with your company Facebook page, allow users of your app to post to their Facebook wall from your app and more.

With the prevalence and popularity of social media mobile app development for sites such as foursquare, LinkedIn, Facebook, MySpace and more, now is the time for your business to create mobile apps through outsourcing to be on the forefront of this trend and ahead of your competition.

In order to build mobile apps, you need to decide whether you want to entertain, inform or perform a service that will either be relevant to your brand or can promote your brand in an indirect, yet effective way to encourage download and use of the custom mobile apps your mobile apps developer creates for you. To find a professional, affordable mobile apps developer, consider using oDesk for your outsourcing needs.

If you own a restaurant or bar, building mobile apps that offer a game to earn real world points consumers can redeem for free drinks can be a great way to encourage download and use. By having your mobile apps developers integrate social media sharing as they create mobile apps for you, you can make your custom mobile apps even more appealing.

The number of consumers on social media apps has increased by nearly 140% just in the last year and is growing at an exponential rate. When you build mobile apps that integrate popular social media interfaces, you will be able to reach a wider audience as people share your app with their friends across their social media network.

Working with a mobile apps developer, you’ll be able to come up with ideas for custom mobile apps that will most effectively promote your brand and niche. As a plus, building mobile apps is now more cost effective than ever with the prevalence of outsourcing sites you can use to find qualified, affordable mobile app developers.

Consider eLance.com, one of the longest-standing and most reputable outsourcing sites where you can post your custom mobile apps project at no cost and have hundreds of bids for your project within hours. Whatever method you choose for outsourcing to build mobile apps, the best time to launch a mobile app to promote your brand and business is now!

Of course you can always use an online mobile app builder to create your mobile app.  Check out Shoutem below.

Thanks for the info on the mobile apps. I actually have a hot dog cart business downtown that I’ve been wondering about creating an app for. I already have a facebook page and everything, but I guess you’re kind of right in saying that apps are more user friendly. Quick question though… should the app be free? and if so should I put ads on them to make money on the side?

Thanks for your comment. Most apps these days are free and in your situation it sounds like your app should also be free. Apps for mobile restaurants can best utilize apps to communicate things like menus’s, your location and schedule. Using the push notification feature within your app can push out these updates to your followers.

As far as ads in your app, againn, in your situation, I wouldnt suggest including ads. Build your app installs, communicate with your customers and grow your business… should be your app strategy.
