As a small business ourselves, we want to do our part to make small businesses be successful, so that they can then also help turn our economy around and pave the way for future generations of entrepreneurs.
New York, NY (PRWEB) November 20, 2012
Despite months of elections invoked political bickering, the one thing the nation seems to agree on is the need for economic recovery and the important role which small businesses play in that turnaround. Mobile app-building platform Infinite Monkeys is offering a boost to these valuable small businesses by drastically reducing the entry price of their fully-loaded “Monkey Business” app option. The lowered price point, from $499 to just $99, allows SMBs to enter the app marketplace and increase their customer engagement, relevancy and organic marketing efforts in seamless app-style.
The special pricing of $99 for an unlimited, ad-free mobile app, will be offered to small businesses who create their own app before the end of the year.
According to statistics and research compiled by the U.S. Small Business Administration “small firms accounted for 65% (or 9.8 million) of the 15 million net new jobs created between 1993 and 2009.” As that number continues to grow with each passing year, there’s no denying the crucial economic role of small businesses. Other SBA findings further support this position and demonstrate why Infinite Monkeys feels so strongly about lending support to small businesses.
These findings include:
- Small businesses employ about half of all U.S. workers.
- Small businesses create more than half of the nonfarm private GDP.
- Small businesses employ half of all private sector employees.
- The smallest firms (fewer than 20 employees) spend 36% more per employee than larger firms to comply with federal regulations.
There’s no denying the economic impact on the nation resulting from small businesses. Even without the deep pockets of big corporations, they are profoundly affecting the path toward economic recovery in a positive way.
Given the current technological climate and the push toward mobile, apps are quickly morphing from a trend or nice-to-offer component, in to a small business necessity. Survey findings compiled by Bank of the West show that nearly three-quarters (74%) of all small business owners believe that mobile tech “will be important to the future success of their businesses.” As these businesses struggle to stay relevant and a step ahead of the competition, they are turning toward accessibility and communication with their clients as a value-add to their business structure. Apps have become a central feature of modern-day marketing and social connectivity from which all small businesses can benefit.
“As a small business ourselves, we want to do our part to make small businesses be successful, so that they can then also help turn our economy around and pave the way for future generations of entrepreneurs,” states Infinite Monkeys CEO and co-founder Jay Shapiro. The simple no-coding-required, drag-and-drop interface of Infinite Monkeys’ App Building Machine, combined with the low $99 cost, puts a fantastic app built at an extraordinary price into the hands of all small businesses.
