Mobile app development company Apps4U invites small businesses across the country to enter their free app development competition, with a prize worth nearly £2000.
Mobile apps are a major component in modern living. 85% of people say they prefer using apps over mobile websites, mainly because they streamline the user experience and make the business/service more accessible and easier to engage with. Given the popularity of apps, their benefits for a small business are almost immeasurable. Apps can help draw in new customers, inspire repeat business, establish eCommerce platforms and provide powerful marketing tools. However, as the average app development project costs thousands of pounds, most local gardeners and garden centres are priced out of the market, meaning they miss out on these vital, business-boosting advantages.
