Smartphone apps are in very high demand, the trouble is, the cost of having one developed is a high expense for a small business. Asking for a price to get an iPhone app developed results in giddying numbers and a time frame to match. 30a Television aims to change that with the launch of their "Free Apps For Clients" Program.
30a Television will make an iPhone and droid app of your website and submit to the Apple App Store as well as the Android marketplace, at no cost, provided you are also an advertiser on 30a Television.
"Small to medium size businesses tend to have marketing budgets to match, said Paul Vizard, CEO of 30a Media. we have combined resources with Appbates (http://www.appbates.com ), to develop these apps as a package deal with a 6 or 12 month advertising contract. Enabling businesses to get an app made at the same time as providing exposure on our network is very satisfying"
Small and medium size businesses are looking at apps as a key marketing tool for the future. Smartphone ownership recently topped the 100 million mark, and web browser traffic is dropping off, while mobile internet connections are increasing rapidly. With the popularity of tablets such as the iPad and Galaxy Note, apps need to be a vital part of an online presence.
"Since most websites are also not quite mobile ready, its important to have an alternative for clients and potential customers to find your business, and access your products and services while on the go Vizard said. This is especially important with mapping and finding locations for a business more easily."
Businesses can apply for their iPhone and android app by completing a short webform at http://www.30a.tv/freeapp - but only for a limited time. Only the first 50 contracted clients will receive the app offer.
