Embrace the Smartphone App Economy In Your Business!

The IntelliSite team craft stunning business websites that look, feel and function just like smartphone apps.

In fact, our creations are so ‘app-like’, your visitors will believe they’re really using one!

This makes a huge difference to your bottom-line because your prospects now use smartphone apps for just about everything they do online!

In fact, the more your website looks, feels and functions like a smartphone app, the more likely your visitors will engage with your business offerings and make an enquiry!

These Are The Facts of Online Business Today*

  • 66% of Australians access the Internet primarily using their smartphones, a percentage continuing to increase
  • 75% of Australian smartphone users prefer using apps rather than web browsers such as Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Chrome
  • Most smartphone users say they prefer functional apps that perform useful tasks over ones that ‘just’ provide information
  • The Top 6 apps used by Australians are Facebook, Facebook Messenger, YouTube, Amazon, Google Search, and Yahoo Mail
  • 81% of Australians prefer using their smartphones to access Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn
  • Of these, 68% prefer using smartphone apps to access these services

We Are Way Beyond Responsive Design Now!

Responsive Design, a technique that dynamically adjusts websites to enhance readability on mobile devices, no longer cuts it. To the countless Australians who now do most things online using smartphone apps, Responsive Design websites suck big time!

This is because Australians just love using smartphone apps when online, and somewhat unreasonably perhaps, expect the same app experience from the many websites they visit each day. And if it's not forthcoming, they often get frustrated and leave.

So the more 'app-like' your business website appears on smartphones, the more likely visitors will stay, engage and ultimately make an enquiry.

Wow, I’d better run out and commission an app for my business then – right?

Actually – that might not be the best idea! Having a native smartphone app developed and deployed for your business is a high cost and high risk proposition with an inversely low probability of achieving a worthwhile return on investment. In fact, most business app ventures fail, and very expensively.

Just consider the numbers involved. Any worthwhile app that customers are likely to download and use will set you back anywhere from 10k* to 100k*, and that’s before so much as a single copy is downloaded. Further, these big costs are further increased by the ongoing maintenance and marketing any successful business app requires by necessity!

So how can you provide your prospects and customers with the app experience they want, but without taking on the huge expense, big hassles and significant business risk associated with native app development?

So, which is best for my business - IntelliSite vApp or a Native App?

Great question! The role that Intellsite vApp serves in the smartphone app market is to provide you with a website that provides your visitors with the authentic app experience they prefer when online, whilst avoiding the hefty expense, hassles and business risk associated with native app development.

This means you can powerfully engage your online prospects with a site that look, feels and function just like a native smartphone app, but for just a tiny fraction of the price and absolutely no hassles! For most small businesses therefore, an Intelliste vApp is the perfect smartphone 'app' solution, because it allows you to fully exploit the app economy for just a very small investment.

However, there will be some businesses for which the development of a full-on native smartphone app is unavoidable. In particular, you will need to engage the services of a native smartphone app developer if your require several or all of the capabilities on this list:

  • Your app’s presence on the App Store or Google Play is going to be a key part of your marketing strategy.
  • Your app needs to access native smartphone features not accessible using a browser, most notably the device’s camera, microphone, Bluetooth, accelerometer, and file system.
  • You specifically want your app to appear on the smartphone user’s home screen.
  • Your app is specifically designed to be used on a very regular basis to perform a useful or entertaining function when the user is ‘out and about’.
  • Your app must be able to function normally when the user’s smartphone does not have cellular or wi-fi connectivity.

If these requirements do in fact apply to the app you want developed, then you'll have little choice but to invest substantial time, effort and money into having a native smartphone app developed, deployed and maintained for you by a competent (hopefully) native app developer. Best of luck!
