By Kartikeya Sharma in Fashion,Mobile Technology,Technology
Continuing with my previous post – Beauty and Wellness, which focuses on industry facts and figures, this post talks on how mobile technology can help your business grow exponentially.
Well, so how do we go about this ?
The answer is very simple –
go Mobile !
The Beauty and Wellness industry has been an early adopter of mobile technology and profiting from its obvious advantages as a result this segment is going through an exciting time. VAYUZ has been working hand in glove in the Beauty & Wellness and Fashion space across various regions.
Start-ups like StyleSeat among a few others enjoy a large share of the market with nation-wide spread with their app presence.
The focus, though, largely remains on the following :
The Aggregation model – mobile apps give power to a business by clubbing various services providers in one space.
Technology Integration – technology drives such businesses and is integrated to the core, from booking an appointment to managing payments to deals and discounts and much more.
Challenging Legacy systems – with their own mobile apps, new businesses are challenging the traditional way of doing business.
Let’s shift the focus, briefly, to what do customers want.
Convenience is what a customer wants and a mobile app delivers this. Multiple studies show 55-60 % of the users give importance to the “convenience factor” in a mobile app, above all else.
Coming back to how a mobile app can help grow a business exponentially, here are a few benefits straight off the bat :
As discussed above, Convenience is one of the most critical aspects of a mobile app. The app is there to make things easier for the customer, not harder. A mobile app :
- Allows customer to select from multiple payment modes like Debit, Credit, Internet Banking or by Cash.
- Empowers the customer to book your services instantly.
- Allows your customer the freedom to discover your services through the app, anytime anywhere !
- Manage the show better and keep a HAWKEYE view on your business.
Create immediate value for your customers, advertisers and the organization.

A mobile app helps you get a digital presence it also opens up a new channel for you to increase sales.

One key component is to incorporate analytics into your mobile app. Any business must be able to track and identify their users experience and actions. By analyzing customer behavior patterns you can understand “what your customer wants”. Tracking and analysing the customers app usage will help gather data which encourage you for better updates.
