The specialist app provider is running a contest which offers small business owners the opportunity to create new forms of interactivity and customer engagement, to ensure they don’t get left behind.


Websites are dead, get an app instead!

Apps have really taken over and we want every small business to be able to create an app that will deliver great user experience and keep their customers returning- Nick Barnett, CEO at

In this digital era, business owners are trying to build stronger relationships with their customers, in order to increase repeat business and boost their customer base. Many big brands are abandoning their websites altogether, and focussing on their mobile apps instead. Appsme is trying to ensure that small businesses keep up with this growing trend, and it is on a mission to help small businesses ‘go mobile’.

Improving brand identity and customer communication are key to helping small businesses to grow, and when it comes to customer engagement, mobile apps offer users a personalised experience. Businesses can share useful information, promotions and loyalty schemes with their customers, via the app's push notification feature, rather than sending them an email.

Clare Singleton, owner of The Granary Spa based in Ashford Kent, created her app with the help of an Appsme Guru and her app is free for her customers to use. Clare has now ditched her old printed loyalty cards and launched a digital loyalty scheme instead via her app. She no longer has to deal with all the paper work and the cost of printing the cards anymore. Of course there is no longer the issue of customers losing their cards either.
