Add a Smart App Banner to Your Mobile Site

April 4, 2017 Louis Musher 224 0

If you’re already an iMobileApp client, then you know that our mantra for step 1 of reaping a return on your app investment is: Market your app and get it downloaded. Make your application visible and people will download it!

One easy and extremely effective way to make sure your app is visible is to add a Website Mobile App Banner to your mobile website.

Smart App Banners appear at the top of your website when accessed by a visitor on a mobile device to let them know that your business has a mobile app available for download from the respective App Stores and ensures that visitors to your mobile website will see that you have a mobile app available.

If the app is already installed on a user's device, the banner intelligently changes its action, and tapping the banner will simply open the app. If the user doesn’t have your app on their device, tapping on the banner will take them to the app’s entry in the App Store. A progress bar will appear, indicating how much longer the download will take to complete. When the app finishes downloading, the user can either open the app or return to the website. Tapping the banner will now open the app while preserving the user’s context from your website.

Smart App Banners automatically determine whether the app is supported on the user’s device and knows which App Store to go to.

Remember, mobile apps lead to customer loyalty and retention. When people install your business’ app on their smartphone, the device they check the most, you’ve earned unfiltered access. Go one step further and reward your users with a coupon for downloading your app and incentivize customers to come to your business and spend more money.
