Apps are replacing web sites... notice how many people use them in public everyday?
Denver, CO (PRWEB) October 31, 2012
Since the downturn of the economy, restaurant spending among consumers has declined, however a recent study shows that more than 63 percent of restaurant searches on Google for special days such as Valentines Day were done on a mobile device.
That’s why a Denver-based mobile app development company is now offering to provide restaurants with custom apps in order to boost sales and attract new customers every day of the week.
“We provide mobile apps for restaurants via smart phones (iPhone and Android),” said Steve Kilberg, ceo of SKRP Media, which specializes in mobile marketing and internet marketing strategies for large and small businesses. “Due to the current economy and overall fierce competition in the restaurants space, businesses need to take advantage of this cutting edge tool to stand out from the crowd.”
Kilberg explained that 72 percent of mobile device owners visit social networking sites at least once a day and that there are more than 1 million new Andriod activations a day.
"Apps are replacing web sites,” Kilberg stressed. “We now live in a mobile world, so should businesses.”
The chief operating officer noted that restaurants who choose to add an app as a tool to attract new customers to their restaurant and to accommodate existing customers could not only benefit with additional sales, but also simplify the marketing process.
“When a restaurant adds an app, they’ll be empowered with a variety of capabilities that they otherwise would not have, such as push notifications to immediately talk to customers, add a frequent buyer tracking system, which eliminates the need for plastic cards or paper forms to punch, which customers lose all the time,” KIlberg said.
Kilberg went on to point out that a mobile app gives restaurants the ability to order food, implement GPS directions, discounts, coupons, and more.
“The cost for something like this even a year or two ago was out of reach for most restaurants, but today just about every restaurant can afford it,” Kilberg said, before adding, “Restaurants simply cannot afford to not do it because their competition will take advantage of it for sure.”
Kilberg said that his company has helped restaurants across the nation increase sales and attract new customers using a custom app and wants to do the same for more restaurants at an affordable price.
“Just to give restaurants an idea of how their mobile app will work for them, we invite them to view our demo which features apps we’ve already developed at: http://skrpmedia.com/products/mobile-apps-demo/. “In addition to producing the app, we offer a one hour free additional mobile marketing consulting.”
