Why Instant Apps Boost Conversions and Engagement

Why Instant Apps Boost Conversions and Engagement

Marketers for companies selling products, want to ensure people are talking about their brands on social media, their phones and their errands. While they have many options at their disposal to boost engagement and conversions, using instant applications is effective and growing in popularity.

Instant apps are technology for smart phones that do not use downloads as a step. Therefore, customers can go from a video talking about the product right to checkout. This saves the customer time and makes people more likely to purchase from you over a competitor.

Those companies that require several steps in between the application and the checkout, lose customers because, people become frustrated with the wait. Also, they might decide they don’t really need what you are selling and end the sale.

More people will move from lookers to customers when they use instant apps. They can be one-click away from buying a product. They don’t have a long checkout process. This converts people, which is what marketers want for their brands.

Instant Content Engages Customers

Beyond being the first to purchase an item, marketers want customers to tell their friends and family to buy something. When you use instant apps, you get right to the meat of the content, without downloading any software. Therefore, people have immediate access to the content and are more likely to share the materials or comment on it.

You want people to comment because they are talking about your brand. When people talk about you, your brand becomes known. This engagement makes people like you and willing to tell others to buy from you.

Instant apps also helps in creating a two-way communication that is personal. When the customer adds a particular brand to contacts, it helps in establishing a personal communication channel, which is reliable and trustworthy.

According to Gallup Research, fully engaged customers give companies 23 percent more loyalty over average customers and fork over more of their wallets. The engaged customer leads to more profitability, revenue and relationship growth. On the other hand, actively disengaged customers are 13 percent less likely to give you money or make you more profitable.

Furthermore, companies that can boast, they are in the top 25 percent with customer engagement, outperform competitors based on profits, sales and growth by a factor of two to one.

Personalized interactions

Communication apps are created for human to human interactions. People do not prefer to get engaged with companies which have no face or identity. People like to communicate with other community members. Instant app provides this opportunity to the people.

They give them an opportunity to start conversations that are unique, personal and bespoke, according to the audience. It gives an opportunity to the brands to send direct messages to their clients. If there is any query, then the clients can get a response in very short time. The instant apps are excellent tool for interacting with and reacting to the messages of customers

Get Right Help from Beginning

Besides getting engagement from instant apps, companies are now recruiting employees with engagement in mind. When they hire employees, they are looking for the employee who has the skills to engage customers and adapt to the business culture. They hire for talent, use their strengths and establish a corporate atmosphere that engages employees and listens to their ideas.

These companies also ensure, the right managers are matched with the right employees. Taking the time to build the right corporate culture from the beginning, is leading to highly engaged customers, which, in turn, translates into customers buying and profitability.

The right managers inspire their team members to stay longer and perform better. They ensure they understand how employees are the heart of the organization and that their roles are important for overall success. The instant apps also help managers inspire employees. The number of employee-feedback apps is increasing due to the instant app technology.

Therefore, it is important to build the outside culture with instant apps and the internal culture with positive feedback opportunities. These actions lead to profitability and marketers getting brand recognition.

7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

Now that 2011 is well underway and most people have fallen off the bandwagon when it comes to their New Year’s resolutions (myself included), it’s a good time to step back and take an honest look at our habits and the goals that we want to achieve.

Something that I have learned over the past few years is that if you track something, be it your eating habits, exercise, writing time, work time, etc. you become aware of the reality of the situation. This is why most diet gurus tell you to track what you eat for a week so you have an awareness of the of how you really eat before you start your diet and exercise regimen.

Tracking daily habits and progress towards goals is another way to see reality and create a way for you clearly review what you have accomplished over a set period of time. Tracking helps motivate you too; if I can make a change in my life and do it once a day for a period of time it makes me more apt to keep doing it.

So, if you have some goals and habits in mind that need tracked, all you need is a tracking tool. Today we’ll look at 7 different tools to help you keep track of your habits and goals.

Joe’s Goals

    Joe’s Goals is a web-based tool that allows users to track their habits and goals in an easy to use interface. Users can add as many goals/habits as they want and also check multiple times per day for those “extra productive days”. Something that is unique about Joe’s Goals is the way that you can keep track of negative habits such as eating out, smoking, etc. This can help you visualize the good things that you are doing as well as the negative things that you are doing in your life.

    Joe’s Goals is free with a subscription version giving you no ads and the “latest version” for $12 a year.

    Daytum

      Daytum

      is an in depth way of counting things that you do during the day and then presenting them to you in many different reports and groups. With Daytum you can add several different items to different custom categories such as work, school, home, etc. to keep track of your habits in each focus area of your life.

      Daytum is extremely in depth and there are a ton of settings for users to tweak. There is a free version that is pretty standard, but if you want more features and unlimited items and categories you’ll need Daytum Plus which is $4 a month.

      Excel or Numbers

        If you are the spreadsheet number cruncher type and the thought of using someone else’s idea of how you should track your habits turns you off, then creating your own Excel/Numbers/Google spreadsheet is the way to go. Not only do you have pretty much limitless ways to view, enter, and manipulate your goal and habit data, but you have complete control over your stuff and can make it private.

        What’s nice about spreadsheets is you can create reports and can customize your views in any way you see fit. Also, by using Dropbox, you can keep your tracker sheets anywhere you have a connection.

        Evernote

          I must admit, I am an Evernote junky, mostly because this tool is so ubiquitous. There are several ways you can implement habit/goal tracking with Evernote. You won’t be able to get nifty reports and graphs and such, but you will be able to access your goal tracking anywhere your are, be it iPhone, Android, Mac, PC, or web. With Evernote you pretty much have no excuse for not entering your daily habit and goal information as it is available anywhere.

          Evernote is free with a premium version available.

          Access or Bento

            If you like the idea of creating your own tracker via Excel or Numbers, you may be compelled to get even more creative with database tools like Access for Windows or Bento for Mac. These tools allow you to set up relational databases and even give you the option of setting up custom interfaces to interact with your data. Access is pretty powerful for personal database applications, and using it with other MS products, you can come up with some pretty awesome, in depth analysis and tracking of your habits and goals.

            Bento is extremely powerful and user friendly. Also with Bento you can get the iPhone and iPad app to keep your data anywhere you go.

            Analog Bonus: Pen and Paper

            All these digital tools are pretty nifty and have all sorts of bells and whistles, but there are some people out there that still swear by a notebook and pen. Just like using spreadsheets or personal databases, pen and paper gives you ultimate freedom and control when it comes to your set up. It also doesn’t lock you into anyone else’s idea of just how you should track your habits.

            Conclusion

            I can’t necessarily recommend which tool is the best for tracking your personal habits and goals, as all of them have their quirks. What I can do however (yes, it’s a bit of a cop-out) is tell you that the tool to use is whatever works best for you. I personally keep track of my daily habits and personal goals with a combo Evernote for input and then a Google spreadsheet for long-term tracking.

            What this all comes down to is not how or what tool you use, but finding what you are comfortable with and then getting busy with creating lasting habits and accomplishing short- and long-term goals.
