The question is how exactly you will develop mobile marketing strategies and whether or not that comes with your own app. It’s not for everyone, but most businesses are starting to create their own apps.
Why use an app?
Some people may be wondering why you would develop an app for your business.

It is also a much more mobile-friendly way of shopping than trying to pull up a browser and get to your company’s website. Another reason to get a mobile app is to help your customers remember you.
