Implement a Targeted Approach to UX

Build Apps to Neet the Needs of Mobile-Savvy Customers
Want to get the most value out of your apps? Make sure that they’re designed to meet the needs of the savvy mobile customers who are most likely to engage with your brand. One valuable tip from the Forrester report is to consider building new apps when your current solution is getting messy. Additional apps can help to streamline the user experience, and depending on your brand, can logically separate different products.
Building new apps requires a delicate approach, though. Some situations call for new apps when others don’t, and it’s important to know the difference. Learn when you should — and shouldn’t — build new apps in the complimentary report.
Experiment with Messaging and Notifications
For many mobile users, the only thing easier than engaging with an app is engaging with notifications. With a dedicated mobile messaging strategy, you may be able to further simplify the user experience by moving simple tasks and communication to notifications. The extent to which this works depends on your business, as well as the privacy of information involved.
Consider embedding simple questions into notifications to increase engagement of evaluating moving smaller apps onto messaging platforms. You can find more mobile messaging and notification strategies in the report.
