Everything seems to be going mobile. There is a mobile application for just about any type of business or task nowadays. By 2020 it is projected the mobile app market will be $189 billion, representing 270 percent growth. With 95 percent of the U.S. population owning a cell phone and 81 percent of these devices being a smart phone, a mobile app is a necessary tool for many businesses, including chambers of commerce. It is imperative for not only retaining members, but also for recruiting new ones.
Below are just a few of the many benefits your chamber can encounter thanks to a mobile application:
Increases the Activity Level of Members
Keeping members engaged is one of the biggest challenges chambers are facing today. Members become more active when they have valuable chamber information at their fingertips. With a mobile app, members can stay on top of upcoming events and easily register via their smartphone as well as easily connect and engage with other members. An active chamber is a successful chamber.
Makes it More Convenient to Keep up with Chamber News
Since the average smartphone subscriber uses their device over four hours per day, it is critical that chamber news be readily available on it. The convenience factor is critical for keeping busy members engaged.
Helps to Attract and Engage Younger Members
Attracting Millennials is another key challenge every chamber is facing. Almost ninety-eight percent of this generation have smart phones; therefore, they are accustomed to using mobile apps to order food, compare prices, bank, request a ride and much, much more. For this generation, a chamber mobile app is not just a “nice to have”, but is a “must”.
