An App a day keeps the Banker away!

by Adam Bean on February 12, 2012

So you have seen and heard the statistics on so called “smart phones”. You know the statistics that tell us some time  last year smart phone sales outstripped the sales of personal computers.In fact you don’t even need to be online to notice the effect this smart phone phenomena is having!

Think back to the last time you were walking down the main street in town. I mean it is hard to walk down the street these days without someone glued to their phone walking right into you because they can’t tear themselves away from the damn things for even a minute.

Am I right? or Am I right?

So how exactly is a “smart phone” going to affect your marketing?  You do remember how important your marketing is, don’t you ? Seeing how it is the tool your business needs to generate more leads, sales and cash-flow for you.

I mean these phones, they are not that smart! Are they?

Well the fact that the phone is smart is only part of the equation, the big part is as I mentioned earlier…

People seem to be permanently connected to them at the wrist when they are out and about! Which is vitally important because…..

When they are out and about they generally have money to spend burning a hole in their pocket.

Now there are a number of ways you can use this situation to your advantage, but the one that we are going to focus on today is………



Now when I talk about apps people tend to freak out straight away and come out with a comment along these lines…

Beanie I have barely worked out how to log on and share a link on Facebook! And now you want me to create an App! Are you mad?

Well the answer is YES I am mad!

But that is beside the point. Building an app doesn’t have to be a complex (or expensive, in fact we can do this for only a few hundred dollars!) thing to do, so in my next few posts I am going to step you through the process.

Even better how about this? I am going to step your teenage kids through the process. Don’t have any? I am sure you know someone who does that would be more than happy to do this for you for the price of an iTunes voucher!

I am also going to show you exactly where you can get step by step online training that your teenage kids can follow to make this App thing happen for you. See that banner at the bottom of this post? Go there (Yes I may make some money if you actually sign up for this course! Shock Horror I know) and for only $1 you will get trial access to all of the training required.

Just imagine you can take all off those hours of screen time that you though were wasted and turn them into a valuable asset!

Whod’ve thunk that would ever happen!


Anyway enough talk! Let’s take some action. Get over grab the training, let me know that you are ready to get started in the comments section below. And we can bounce around some ideas for how your app will work.


Cheers Beanie

Ok Beanie, I’m keen, but time poor. Wanna chat? Still grappling with mobile technology!

Absolutely right on Adam, apps for your business must be appropriate, work for you and add value to your customers as well, and be easy, simple and fun to use, that’s all I can add to your post 🙂

Hey Krishna, would love to chat. I will be back before the end of the month. How about we catch up for a coffee?

Hey Annie, you nailed it. They have to fit with your overall marketing plan.
