Why should I get a mobile app?

85% of consumers favour mobile apps over mobile websites - and 57% of shoppers prefer mobile apps over any other shopping experience.

Think about how you normally go about life on your phone. If you want to order takeaway, you use an app like Deliveroo, Uber Eats, GrubHub or DoorDash.

If you want to be social, you use an app like Instagram, Snapchat, or Twitter.

If you want to read the news, you use an app. If you want to play a game, you use an app. And most importantly, if you want to shop, you use an app.

However, most Shopify store owners think their mobile website is good enough. With 79% of traffic to Shopify stores coming from mobile, but mobile websites converting just 3x less than mobile apps, can you imagine the sales you're missing out on?

Not to mention, mobile apps come with the most powerful marketing tool around: push notifications. Push notifications convert 15x better than email and 9x better than SMS, and help tackle one of the most frustrating parts of being an online store owner: abandoned carts.

65% of customers return to the app after a push notification message is sent. So, by setting up an automated push notification to go out when a customer doesn’t complete a purchase, you can direct them straight back to the app to follow through with the payment.

No more missed sales.

And no-code mobile apps mean you can create your app yourself without a single line of code. 

That means no complicated tech lessons or through-the-roof developer costs just to get the same opportunities as the big guys.

One of our founding principles is that mobile apps should be accessible and affordable to any and all businesses, which is why with StoreLab, you can build your very own no-code mobile app from just $79/month.
