Mobile Apps Should be Part of Your Marketing Mix
Apps? Really? Like Clash of Clans?
Perhaps not like Clash of Clans, but yes. With over two billion smartphones in the world today and each iPhone launch causing people to line up for days to get one, no one can deny the pervasive effect smartphones have garnered over the last few years.
And it isn’t going to change soon. With online habits moving increasingly from desktop to tablets and smartphones, more and more people look for and act on local information on their mobile device- whether it is reservations at their favorite restaurant, a ticket to their favorite team, or just what tomorrow’s weather will be. And mobile apps are increasingly how they do this.
Now through May 15th, our app prices have been slashed to as low as $397 for the development and only $97/month! This is a first-year saving of over $500! Click below to get all of the details.
So if you don’t have an app already, do you need one?
Probably, if not definitely. To date, there have been over 50 billion app downloads from the Apple App Store driving over $60 billion in revenue by 2018.
With increasing smartphone use, consumers increasingly are demanding constant access to information and data which can quickly only be delivered by apps. Using a smaller footprint and requiring fewer resources to run, apps quickly and effectively can answer this need. Apps give your customers the service they need!
Why Not Just a Mobile Website?
Though mobile websites are also a key element in a successful marketing plan, an app provides much more:
- Increased flexibility gives small and local businesses a competitive advantage over larger and more entrenched competitors.
- Connect with your customers anytime from anywhere, even if your brick and mortar location is closed.
- Apps improve internal effectiveness by letting them communicate, check inventory and other key functions.
- Apps are quicker than mobile websites in entering data, taking orders, and other simple tasks. The simpler placing an order is, the higher your sales will go!
- Apps are convenient. With consumers pressed for time, increasingly the fastest and easiest option wins out and becomes a brand standard.
- Apps are increasingly becoming accepted as a requirement for businesses of all sizes. Organizations without them may run the risk of being perceived as less responsive to consumer needs.
But Mobile Apps are Expensive, Aren’t They?
Yes, they can be- especially for the novice. At JVI Mobile we give you two options to create your own App. We empower you to create, edit, and manage your own apps for a variety of platforms including iPhone and Android through our own system.

Who says you need to wait for summer to have a Blockbuster? Movies, sales, fireworks, vacations. Yes, summers are a good time for blockbusters.
However… In this case, we are kicking off summer in February. First, we will be giving away nearly $3000 in App Development work at the Allaboutwilmington.com Business after hours this evening. Then, in just a few short weeks, we will be introducing ourselves to our second location, Halifax County, VA.
Recently, we have added another new client as well. Pyramid Taxi Sevice in Wilmington, NC has the cleanest vans in Wilmington. They also have great drivers and really great rates. We developed their iPhone and Android app and will add the listing to our portfolio page really soon!
So, while you might be waiting on a summer blockbuster, we are offering a whole lot of bang for your buck this spring!

We are nearing our first anniversary as a mobile marketing company.
… WOW! …….
It is time to crank up to the next level and introduce to you the new JVI Mobile. If you need to learn it, build it, convert it, we’ve got you covered. We will need a bunch of staff to perform all of the new services we are offering. With that being said, be on the lookout for sales and marketing positions opening up, as well as new services offered to the general public, not just businesses. We will keep you posted!
Wow! So much happened in 2012. As we near our 1st anniversary, looking back has brought a lot of joy our way. We got our first 5 clients, hurdled a few things, fell flat on our faces once or twice, and celebrated a few wins. Guess you could say that it was a typical first year in an expanding business.
This year, we hope to achieve better results, yet allowing our expectations get the best of us.
First, we are kicking off our spring 2013 campaign! This means we will be looking for talented sales professionals, as well as social media hipsters, to help us grow the business to 25+ clients. Sound aggressive? It should. This industry is set to thrive. We want to be your home on your customers’ devices.
Next, we will be running a promotion to give away 5,000 dollars worth of mobile app development! If your business would like to get started on a shoestring budget, this is the time for you to sit down with us, and share your ideas with us. We can take you from start to finish with your project.
In addition, to celebrate our anniversary, in May and June, we will be doing some redesigns of a few of our published apps, as well as launching some new consulting services to our product line.
Finally, we will be hosting some forums on the many ways your business can thrive with mobile marketing and social media.
It’s gonna be a great year!
