Interesting in terms of popularity are car applications and messengers: every week comes at least one application in these areas. Most likely this is due to the apparent simplicity of implementation of these products: both applications look pretty easy, and the huge success of existing analogues in the market constantly stirs up interest in this area.

Who orders a mobile apps and why?

About 60% of all orders is an existing business. That means not doing something in general business activity, the authors of the idea creating a mobile application as an instrument to an already working the case.

In General, the goal in this case is a partial shift in the mobile segment: in recent years the number of clients receiving their services and purchase products via the mobile application as a percentage is growing steadily, so you have to move your media presence in those areas where information goes to the movement.

Sometimes the goal is and expansion of client base, but it is rare: most companies custom portrait of more or less clearly expressed, the realization as other advertising channels almost always involves other groups of audience, under which it is necessary to adapt the offered goods and services.

Again, this can be (in most cases it is) not the first of their business, but the idea itself is part of a single business plan.

If the application is developed for existing customer audience, with proper implementation and promotion can significantly improve the position of your business. Good prospects for expansion of the customer base and improve the quality of services provided is when a significant portion of your audience already uses mobile apps.

If competitors already have the app, the distinctive hand, new ideas must be strong enough to outweigh the inertia of users. In particular, it is important for the messengers and other social applications: users they communicate strong teams and motivation to move must be strong.

If competitors don't, then you must first zadatsja the question why. No matter how it's sad to admit, but, as a rule, the reason is that it just doesn't work.

It is also necessary to bear in mind the fact that the cost of attracting a new user in the mobile application on average 5 times higher than the cost of one new visitor on the site. T. (e). with the same budget through the site you refer five times more customers than through the application.

Implementing new ideas often associated with many risks and requires careful professional analysis, but if successful, taking a strong position in existing or emerging only niches.
