Can you use social media for your Mobile App Promotion?

There have been uncountable changes in the world of internet since it was first brought into our lives in the year 1990. Out of all the changes, the biggest one has been the invention of social media. No matter what platform it is, social media has brought the entire world together in the most literal sense of the phrase.

The marketing tactics of enterprise an start-ups across the world have been changed based on the social media platforms they’re targeting. In a world where an average person spends a crazy amount of their daily time on their smartphones, industries like entertainment, e-commerce, everyone has dipped their feet in the waters of social media marketing.

How these companies follow some of the best marketing strategies and promote their products and services is one thing but can social media platforms be really used for the promotion of Mobile applications?

The answer is, yes. Companies as big as Netflix, Uber, Amazon (Amazon prime), all are mobile application service providers. Some in entertainment sector, others in on-demand industry but they provide services through mobile applications and they’re prominent on every social media channel, therefore, it is safe to say that social media marketing for your application is not just an idea, rather, it’s a great idea.

Let us move forward and have a look at the possible strategies that can be followed to put your mobile app on the map of visibility on various social media platforms.

  1. Establishment of a remarkable online presence

SOcial media presence takes a while to build itself up. You cannot just land up on a new platform and expect deals and leads to flow into your pipeline. It’s a rather gradual process. ANd like the name suggests, it is built by being socially present on these platforms. The same rule holds true for your mobile app development company or mobile application itself.

Only research can help in cases of new businesses. Research to identify your target audience, your competitors, the strategies implemented by your competitors on social media platforms, etc. will help in giving you a headstart about marketing your own product.

  1. Enhancing your visibility

This strategy is the main objective behind any social media platform – to put you on the map. In simpler words, if you want to let the world know about the amazing a mobile application that you have to offer or that you’re a serious mobile app developer, you have to be regular and constantly present on these platforms. In this way, more and more audience will start recognizing you and may be even start asking questions. You can use those questions in your posts to answer them. This will start building a relation between you and your followers, and slowly more people will start recognizing you and your application. In other words, you will gain more visibility.

  1. Always be open to feedback from the users

Social media platforms are open platforms. That means that users are allowed to voice their opinion at any point of time about anything. And keeping in mind that you have created an application for people to use, always be open to their reviews and feedbacks. As the end users, it is best to provide upgrades based on real time feedbacks from customers. It will give you an insight in what they want and what you might have missed in you mobile app that could be added further.

Secondly, responding positively to customer feedbacks builds a reputation in the market and the word spreads to let more users know about your product.

  1. Make use of paid advertisements

There is always a feature of paid advertisement provided in every social media platform. Organic traffic, audience and customers are the best, without arguments. However, when you are only beginning to step into the industry and still working hard to root yourself, paid advertisements caan work like a charm. They increase your reach, visibility and engagements manifold. Additionally, you can always select the interests of people you want to target, the number of days and the maximum reach you want to buy. This means that there will never be any blind arrows shot when it comes to paid advertisements.

These are some of the core values of social media marketing. Over and above everything, you should always be constantly active and engaging on these platforms. Because, remember, as difficult it is to gain followers, it is as easy to lose them due to inactivity. Always let your users know what upgrade will be coming next, or what new features are on the way, answer their questions, build a network on the basis of give and take. Commenting and acknowledging other people’s work and being genuine always goes a long way.

Now for the question we started with, that whether or not it is possible to use social media for your mobile app promotion?
The answer is still Yes. With the right tactics and strategies, it is more than possible to build the platform for your mobile application through social media.

 

Corporate Law Departments Now Rely on Legal Analytics

By now, we’re all familiar with the rising of importance in using data reporting and analytics to help drive digital marketing. Now, analytics are helping to transform the way we do other things, as well. For instance, the legal departments in many corporations are learning how to adapt analytics reports to their situations. Legal departments are making use of data in new and unique ways to help them manage their personal and to drive their operations in a positive way.

Where does this data come from? Legal departments comb through their own digital data to develop helpful analytical reports. Each legal department develops strategies based on these reports to help them reach objectives set by the department. By targeting their efforts and using data reports to make more insightful decisions, many legal departments are boosting their daily efficiency levels.

This doesn’t mean every legal professional must suddenly become an expert data analyst. To the contrary, there are a number of services and applications, like Mitratech, which offer user-friendly dashboards. These interactive platforms present the data in a readable, easy-to-understand way. The way the information is presented can be customized, so it will be relevant to the role of the individual accessing the data. This can help each person make data-backed decisions, which help them improve their job productivity.

Making use of data analytics can help legal departments reduce their spending in a number of ways. First, it allows legal professionals to compare the costs to the outcomes of each case to determine where their efforts and resources are best spent. By looking at the department’s trends over a longer period, they can estimate what areas constitute the largest portions of inefficient spending. Once this data is examined, department managers can make changes that will help save on the overall budget, while also enabling the staff to work more efficiently.

Does your legal department have to make use of data analytics reports? No, but failing to do so may actually hurt your department in the long run. Other corporate legal departments will be making use of data in this way, enabling them to work more productively and at lower costs. This may mean falling behind the competition and losing business for your department. Your department will ultimately lose clients to competitors, who can deliver faster and more efficient services.

In addition to streamlining productivity, legal departments can actually use data to reach new clients faster. Corporate actions, such as acquisitions and mergers, can be completed faster, as well. While these advantages may be enough to help you understand the importance of using data analytics in your corporate legal department, also consider the hundreds of thousands of dollars you can cut in operating costs. Lower costs mean raising revenue, which helps a data analytics platform pay for itself.

3 Business Ideas That Are Fun for You and Your Customers

Are you thinking about starting your own business, but you want to be sure that it’ll be something different and fun so that you and your customers can have a great time? Then keeping reading for a list of three fun business ideas that you might not have thought of, but might be just what you are looking for in terms of your career path.

1.      Escape Room Games

When it comes to games nights, one of the most popular options has become the escape room. A superb example is this Indianapolis escape room. To start this business, you will need the right real estate, as the more interesting and unique the setting, the more fun the game can be. Basically, customers come in and pay to play a game in which they are locked in a room together. Using clues that you hide throughout the space, they need to figure out how to get themselves out of the room before time runs out. It is loads of fun and encourages detective work and teamwork, while you make money.

2.      Party Planning

If you love partying, why not plan parties for other people to enjoy? Becoming a party planner is a great way to always have a new project to work on, and you also have the opportunity to work with a variety of people too. Plus, if you would prefer having a business that allows you to do a lot of the work from home, this is a great choice. You will have to meet with clients and head over to venues and shops to purchase necessary supplies, but you can do a lot of the planning on your computer at home. Plus, you can plan everything from fun fundraisers and corporate events, to beautiful weddings and exciting birthday parties, as a few examples, so you can always keep your creative juices flowing.

3.      Interior Design

Another fun business idea involves becoming an interior designer. There are many schools as well as online programs that can teach you the ins and outs of this type of design, which can be thoroughly enjoyable because it really lets you get creative. If you love designing your own spaces at home and you constantly find yourself giving your friends and family suggestions on how they can spruce up their homes, this career could be perfect for you. Plus, you get to be your own boss while working with a variety of clients in homes and businesses of all sizes. Consider doing things differently by getting your customers more involved so that they, too, can have some fun while you guide them towards the design elements that they will love to see in their homes or offices.

These are just three of many fun business ideas that you can embark upon in order to make your career more exciting and interesting. Offering customers an enjoyable experience, whether you’re helping them design their homes or plan a party, is a great way to feel fulfilled in what you do every day.

Do you Find Things Affordable?

One question I ask myself before every purchase is whether or not I can afford something. Sometimes you might be tempted to buy something, but first you might want to consider whether you can afford it or not. Spending more money than you have is not always such a good idea as you have to pay interest on any loan you take. Even if you do not need to make any payments for the first few months, then ultimately you will still need to pay some interest. If you bough something with the money that you have, then it would simply cost you less than if you buy it with a credit card or by taking a loan.
