Online Stores for Regular and Mobile Platforms

Companies that have innovative marketing tools such as websites, blogs, and mobile applications are usually leading their industries in performance. These items are essential elements in positioning a company for growth and recognition among customers as well as competitors. However, companies that have tangible products to sell to consumers need more than just an app or simple website. These businesses need online stores.

Why an online store?

Everyone knows that our society has now moved to the internet. Social networks such as Facebook and Twitter have taken over basic communication, and media outlets now produce most of their content in electronic formats that can be easily read and shared on websites and blogs. Businesses have also become a part of this trend by boosting their

ecommerce capabilities, and if your business sells products that can be shipped then you should consider doing the same. Multichoice Apps designs online stores for new and existing businesses that are looking to push their sales and profits to a higher level. These stores can be designed in a regular online format as well as an efficient mobile platform using an innovative software known as Magento. You may not be familiar with that name, but giants such as OfficeMax and T-Mobile are acquainted with Magento because it is the force powering their online and mobile stores.

Magento and Mobile Stores

When customers can purchase products directly from their phones, it opens up an entire revenue stream for businesses. One reason is that Magento allows developers such as Multichoice Apps to design mobile stores that integrate seamlessly with platforms such as the iPhone, and this allows people to navigate and make purchases easily. Quick, easy purchases build consumer confidence and this will encourage them to [...]

Mobile application for real-estate agents

The economy is going through a tough time right now. Gas prices are soaring through the roof, as you can obviously see as you drive down any main road in the area. Other facets of our lives have been affected by the country’s financial state, such as company layoffs and retail sales. The housing market has suffered more than most industries have during this downturn. This makes the field very competitive for people who make a living in this industry, particularly real estate agents. If you are an agent, you have probably been thinking of ways to make yourself unique instead of swimming with the same old schools of fish. Guess what? Multichoice Apps can help you with this dilemma.

If you want to differentiate yourself from the crowd, you need to consider the creation of a mobile application for your services.

What can this do for you? It allows you to be accessed by any person that owns an iPhone, iPad, or mobile device that runs on the Android operating system. This can put you in touch with a customer base far greater than you could possibly reach through more conventional, “old-fashioned” methods. There are thousands of agents in your city, so what competitive edge do you have over the rest of the pack? Why should a homeowner or buyer choose you to represent them? Here’s the logic: when your clients see your amazing app, they will first notice that the other agents that they have talked to most likely didn’t take the time to develop a mobile app for themselves. The potential client will then conclude that if you have taken the time and effort to make your skills and services presentable in [...]

Competitive advantage with mobile apps

You’ve been looking for a way to increase sales at your dealership. You’ve tried everything from commercials to flyers, ads in local newspapers, and even a dancing bear in front of your dealership out by the street with a sign saying “Buy One, Get One Free!” and you still don’t have many people rushing in to see what you have. Ok – maybe your sign didn’t say buy one and get one free but you know what I mean. In plain English – you need a solution to get people in the door to check out your wonderful products, and you need it quickly.

Mobile Apps Design For Auto Dealers

As a growing business, you now realize that jumping on the technology wave is critical to your business’s success. You also see the importance of having an iPhone and Android application developed. You’ve put your boat into the water and floated around a little, and you see that there are some other companies out there with mobile apps but you notice that they are unattractive and unappealing. Why would they put out such mediocre apps? It is because they simply do not know any better and the companies they choose to design the apps did not do their main job of educating them on how their design would affect the app’s success.

From your preliminary research you have come to the conclusion that you need a well-designed mobile application that looks appealing and professional, and it must have all of the features that will make it easier for potential customers to get the information that they need about your products or services. It must also have a clear path for customers to contact you with as few steps as possible – preferably a one-tap option to put them directly in touch with you.

Why do we emphasize the importance of a sleek design?

It is pretty simple – human beings are naturally drawn to beautiful things, just like all eyes are focused on a pretty woman walking down the street. The same rule applies to the mobile app market. There are many mediocre apps wandering around in the Apple App Store and Android Markets, but the visually appealing applications are the ones that are viewed and downloaded the most. Therefore, Multichoice Apps focuses on creating the most attractive apps that are also the most functional. This [...]

Ways to bring new people into your dealership

You have been looking for ways to bring new people into your dealership, and you are considering having a mobile application designed for you that owners of the iPhone, iPad, and Android devices can use to get in touch with you. You know that in order to succeed you need to jump into the technology wave. However, you are not completely sold on the idea of investing in a mobile app. Here are a few reasons why you should.

You will look like you know what you’re doing. This is an informal way of saying that a mobile app will make you look more professional. When a customer calls into the dealership and asks about your specials or wants to know about the types of inventory that you have, instead of fumbling through papers looking for a brochure to read from or waiting for a inventory screen to load on your computer, you can just ask them if they have an iPhone or Android device. If they say yes, you can simply direct them to your mobile app and they can see your inventory in detail, along with pictures. What better way to say you’re official than “Check out our iPhone app!”

Customers can access you, and you can connect with them. You probably have a database with customer information as well as an email address in which you can send out marketing material and updates to customers. Wouldn’t it be easier to send a message to all your customers with mobile devices that will pop up directly on their phone? This cuts the chance of lost emails and other mishaps by providing a direct link to your clients, and they also have a direct connection [...]

Ways to promote your mobile apps

You have been observing the news and your industry’s market, and you are considering having a mobile application designed for your business in hopes to reach more consumers. Mobile apps are the new thing for the hot iPhone and Android devices, but how can having a mobile application really help you, and how can you incorporate it into your existing technology? Here are a few suggestions.

Twitter

If you have a Twitter page (which you should create if you don’t have one already), you now have something to tweet about! Most people access their Twitter pages through their phones, so having a mobile app goes hand in hand because you can tell people to download your new app, which they can easily do by simply pressing a button or two and going over their app store to quickly snatch it up. Twitter’s speedy but subtle communication style makes it easy to remind your customers of your app everyday without overwhelming them with lengthy advertisements.

Facebook

Facebook is a must have tool for new businesses looking to network fast and for cheap. You can use Facebook to popularize your app by simply updating the status on your company’s profile, as well as provide a link to your website. Facebook also makes it easy for others to share your presence, so by posting one status asking people to download your app, you can easily reach hundreds or thousands of potential customers in no time. Facebook is also frequently accessed by users from their phones so this makes the transition their app store to download your app that much easier.

Youtube

If your company uses Youtube to advertise products or services, you can create a video introducing your application and how it works. [...]
