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.
