- How to Listen To Your Mobile App Users
- What Data You Can Collect Through Apps
- Case Studies and Conclusions
- Live Q&A Session

When browsing for apps, consumers want to know what's in it for them. With over 1,000,000 apps to choose from - why would they want to use yours? Like mentioned earlier, only 7% of businesses have apps on the market today. Of those businesses that have apps - many experience a pain point when it comes to getting more app downloads, finding active users that will spread the word vs. those who just flat out delete the app after just one use. Have you ever thought - maybe it's not them, maybe its the app? Your app is an opportunity to create long-term engagement from consumers to your brand.

If you already have an existing mobile app, ask yourself the following 10 questions:

Do you understand how and why users choose and use apps?
Do you know who is using your app and what their general interests are?
What unique value does your app provide for the user?
Do you tailor your application features to its users?
Do you collect any feedback from your mobile app?
Does your app not only incorporate but encourage social sharing?
Do you send push notifications through your app to its users?
Do you conduct surveys through your mobile application?
Do you offer incentives, prizes, giveaways, points or rewards to app users?
What makes your app different and how are you going to publicize that information?


AGENDA 1. Introduction 2. Consumers and Apps 3. Many Apps Fail...But Why? 4. App Feedback 5. Mobile Surveys 6. App Use Cases 7. Feedback & Questions Thursday, November 7, 13

INTRODUCTION Just five years ago, Apple launched the “app craze” and announced apps as the future of brand to consumer communications. Today there are 1,000,000 and counting available apps in the marketplace and it is a $26 billion industry. Only 7% of businesses worldwide have mobile apps as of October 2013. (eConsultancy) Thursday, November 7, 13

APPS ARE THE FUTURE “A mobile phone has sensors and location and should deliver a type of contextual experience that a desktop application never could.” Gigaom - Mobilize 2013 Thursday, November 7, 13

CONSUMERS AND APPS Users spend, on average, 82% of their mobile minutes with apps and just 18% with web browsers. Research shows consumers download about 40 apps on their smartphones, but actively use about 15 (HBR). Thursday, November 7, 13

APP RETENTION RATES In fact, most apps have a retention rate of 31 percent after the first day, dropping to 15 percent after seven days. By the end of the first month, the retention rate drops to a staggering 6 percent of users (TechCrunch). Thursday, November 7, 13

MANY APPS FAIL...BUT WHY? Organizations are new to mobile - really new. Getting an app into the app store is seen as “something to do.” Different departments have different ideas as to what they want the app to do. This jumble of ideas and objectives creates a poor vision of what the purpose of the app is. Thursday, November 7, 13

MANY APPS FAIL...BUT WHY? (CONTINUED) A Disconnect Between Marketing and Tech Many third party developers and agencies are hungry to take on jobs that they build to a client’s needs but have serious doubts how useful the app will be. Thursday, November 7, 13 36 percent of marketers said IT deliverables fall short of the desired outcome, and 46 percent of IT executives said marketing does not provide an adequate level of detail to meet business requirements. (eConsultancy)

MANY APPS FAIL...BUT WHY? (CONTINUED) Undefined App Target Market Most apps are built because the creator thinks it’s a great idea, but there has been no mobile market research done. Most apps hit development stage with almost zero user research, no focus groups, and no user feedback. (Curious Analytics) Thursday, November 7, 13

THINGS LIKE THIS HAPPEN TOO OFTEN... Spork (Same Concept as OpenTable) A San Francisco Startup with a great idea before OpenTable became popular. They couldn’t figure out how to make money from the concept and closed in just one year.
