Why You Need An App

  • More than one in four adults in the UK now owns a smart phone

  • This time next year that figure will be more than 50%

  • Google reports that over one third of all searches for local businesses already take place on a mobile phone.

Can you afford not to be part of the mobile revolution?

Think about it. Look around you. How many people do you know that don’t have a mobile phone with them all day every day?

Unless you live in a back to nature commune in the middle of nowhere it’s hardly any! And it’s just the same with your customers….

Today’s mobile technology enables you to engage with your prospects and customers like never before and deliver your message to them exactly when they want it and are at their most receptive.

Developing your own mobile phone application puts you right infront of their eyes, on their favourite device, day in day out throughout the whole year.

What else can possibly give your business that that kind of exposure?

How you can take advantage of this massive opportunity right now

Here at IceWaveApps we use the very latest breakthrough technology to create beautifully designed yet highly affordable iphone apps for small, meduim and local businesses.

We can develop an app to help you:

  • Capture leads
  • Generate enquiries
  • Drive sales
  • Deliver offers and content
  • Provide interaction with competitions, quizzes and surveys
  • Build brand appreciation, awareness and loyalty
  • Create great PR and marketing buzz for your company

But that’s only half the story…

Your app won’t be a success unless it’s promoted properly. We can help you successfully market it to your clients and prospects to get the absolute maximum benefit from your investment.

This includes ongoing tracking of your apps performance and developing new features and innovations to keep it fresh and interesting for your users.

Don’t get left behind – a cautionary tale

10 years ago many companies around the globe stuck their heads in the sand when the company website came along. A lot went out of business because of it.

Those that didn’t we’re forced to change their minds and charge hard to try and catch up with their early adopter competitors who were by now streaking ahead into the distance.

Now the mobile revolution is here.

Let us help you make sure you don’t miss out on this remarkable opportunity to join in and jump ahead of your competitors .

What’s Involved

Once you’ve decided to have your iPhone application created, exactly how is it done?

There are really five steps to making your app.

Step 1 – Coming up with idea and defining what you want your app to do.

The most critical step is defining what you want your app to do.

We can help you by advising what is technically possible, what would give you the best marketing results and what would be cost effective for your situation.

Step 2 – Confirming the project

Once your app idea has been fully described and its features listed, we will produce a fully costed proposal document.

This will include a specification that details exactly what we will produce for you, what the investment will be and the likely timescales involved.

It will also detail any parts of the process that you may need to contribute. For example if you want to use your company branded graphics or database information etc.

Step 3 – Development

Once you’ve confirmed your order we’ll begin developing your app.

At various stages during the process we’ll come back to you to confirm that you are happy with the graphic styles and the functionality of the app etc. as it progresses.

Step 4 – Testing

This is where it starts getting exciting!

Once the app is complete we will ‘desk test’ it on our computers and on our test iPhones.
Once this is working to our satisfaction we’ll install a special version of the app on to your own phone without using the apps store.

This will allow you to test the final version of the app yourself and to sign it off for submission when you’re completely happy with it

Step 5 – Submission

Next comes the best bit where we submit your app to the app store for approval.

This involves sending the store your app and company details and then submitting the actual app itself for them to evaluate.

This should take between one and three weeks at most, though it seems longer when you can’t wait to tell the whole world about your shiny new app!

Important Note

There is one vitally important step that almost no one mentions that needs to be taken before the App is submitted to the apps store.

Apple likes to make sure you are a genuine organisation that will support its customers before they will let you put your app in the apps store.

To prove this they like you to set up a professional website/web page for your app.
This can be a single web page though a mini website is better.

 Whichever you choose at minimum should provide a description of the app & what it does, support contact details and a history of the updates that have been issued.

As part of our service to you we create everything that needs to go on this page so that your webmaster can add it to your website.

Alternatively you can simply have a dedicated site/page on our website which would be at www.YourAppName.icewaveapps.com

Next comes promotion which we cover in the ‘Why Choose IceWaveApps’ section below.
