Nashville, TN (PRWEB) November 13, 2013
With Smartphone shipments soaring, mobile applications have become an extremely relevant tool for businesses to use in connecting with their customers. Innov8 Marketing is giving away a free application on their Five-in-One Mobile Marketing Platform in order to “help a business expand into mobile,” according to Innov8 Marketing’s Director of Client Success, Phil Westrick. The contest runs from now until December 21st and is based online.
Digital marketers will most likely close out 2013 by claiming it the year of apps. In October, Apple released stats sharing that more than 10 billion apps were downloaded in their app store since May of this year. The Android Play app marketplace grew by 70% this year adding roughly 375,000 apps since January. A key driver to the app explosion, more smartphones in use throughout the world. Analysts expect 1 billion smartphones will ship in 2013.
“Businesses looking to engage with their customers in today’s world should not overlook the power of what a mobile app can do for their business,” Westrick said. A mobile app could indeed be a very successful link between a business and its customers – eMarketer.com suggests that “adults spend more time on mobile media than newspapers and magazines combined.” Westrick ensured that the mobile application will not be a ‘watered down version’. The mobile app will be available on iPhones and Android phones. Premium features such as a mobile loyalty system, a mobile messaging system, and a mobile ordering (food ordering) system will all be available with the build.
The contest is being run via Facebook and Twitter, as well as through entries to the company’s email newsletter.
