The major buying days of the Holiday season are notorious for being hectic, yet we see that consumers actually enjoy buying gifts on mobile devices more every year.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) November 11, 2014
Ecommerce merchants who want to leverage a mobile app for their Holiday campaigns will need to act quickly. Businesses should place their app orders now to ensure that the apps are available in time.
This year mobile commerce is expected to make up over 33% of Holiday sales according to a recent Internet Retailer report. A mobile app allows merchants to reach out to their customers directly with deals and offers during the busy buying season.
Apptive has built a new feature into their apps specifically geared towards merchants who want to promote their Black Friday specials on mobile devices. This “Specials” module lets merchants enter all products they want to promote through their existing shopping cart. These will then appear in their app, along with a countdown timer letting customers know when the sale will commence and push notifications that alert customers when the sale is actually occurring. The products will appear in a streamlined mobile interface that makes it very easy for customers to browse and make purchases.
“The major buying days of the Holiday season are notorious for being hectic, yet we see that consumers actually enjoy buying gifts on mobile devices more every year,” says Chris Belew, CEO of Apptive. “Our apps make it dead simple for merchants to cash in on mobile commerce and make their customers’ lives much easier.”
The Apptive platform allows merchants to design their own apps with no coding required. Alternatively, merchants can have Apptive design the app for them for a small fee. App orders placed by 3PM CST on Friday, November 14th are guaranteed to be ready by Black Friday.
Merchants can visit try.apptive.com/blackfriday to place their app orders.
