Your mobile app users and customers are the most valuable resource you have when it comes to designing marketing strategy, creating changes or introducing upgrades to a product or service, and deciding the next steps for your business. It’s therefore imperative for you to track how they engage with your app by mapping the routes they take throughout; this will let you know where you’re being successful and where you’re falling short. If your app is in its ideation stage, consider which apps are most popular, i.e. social media and communication, followed by entertainment and mobile gaming in popularity; allow that to inform its design.

User behaviour will tell you everything from how customers interact with your brand to which touchpoints are getting most engagement. It will also give you insight into the needs, goals, interests, frustrations and expectations your audience has of you. Learning to read your analytics efficiently, predict trends, and incorporate user feedback is critical for finding success and making app development worthwhile, as is partnering with a professional mobile app development companythat will take the results of a mobile journey and use it to make your app more meaningful and engaging.

The best companies will take your app idea from its formation up until its launch. During the launching stage, the company provides their clients with actionable user feedback through analytics, so they can see whether their app is getting them the traction they’re looking for, giving them clues as to where they should make modifications. They’ll also ensure your app is fully optimized for each device it runs off of and maintained at all times so trends are in fact user directed, and not influenced by the presence of bugs, lost connections, or other issues.

Using analytics, you can track what’re known as “mobile moments,” like when user activity is turned into a conversion. Knowing which part of the journey the users chooses to terminate contact is also valuable as it’ll tell you where your communication needs to improve, or at what point users are feeling bored and disengaging. Other moments that will matter to your analysis can include how often users click on customer support, respond to a call-to-action, click on an ad, refer someone new to the app, or opt-in for more direct notifications such as a newsletter.

Having a mobile app developed for your business offers plenty more opportunities to connect with prospective customers thanks to how ubiquitous smartphones and tablets have become in the day-to-day lives of modern day consumers. It also allows you to focus on individual messaging as opposed to mass marketing, influenced by factors like device location, helping you to personalize how you reach out. Then, through mapping a customer’s journey, you can determine the success of your efforts almost instantly. Most importantly however, partner with a developer that makes user experience a priority – this way you’re more likely to see those pathways leading to business revenue.
