We live in a crowded app world.. Or so we think. Discoverability is a problem..
But in the developed world., with a billion or so people.. You’re also up against all this!
You and every other App De-veloper . Competing for the same mindspace. Tiny bits of it really. You’re app, which lives in the mobile eco-system, is simply one of many options, especially when it comes to information and entertainment. In the Developed world, people own multiple devices.. They always have.. They have access to every existing medium.
It’s time to focus on New Markets New markets = New Strategy
Emerging Marketing! : These are beautiful numbers if you think about it. 5.8 Billion people.. And only 18% own televisions. 25% radios.. And radios are cheap.
4 Billion mobile subscriptions..in emerging markets alone.
And they’re mostly Mobile Natives. All these people coming online today.. The Rapidly growing Smart phone base.,.. They’re Natives
What do I mean by that?
Let me explain the concept. You and I, we’re mobile immigrants. Oh, of course, we understand the space well enough.. We use our mobile devices really well. We know our OS mods and our little mobile tricks. We can debate Android vs iOS for hours.. days even!
But we weren’t born here. We’ve simply been awarded citizenship.
This isn’t an age or generation things. This is about accessibility. The internet never came to them on a Pentium with a 15” screen.. It started with mobile!
All our basic assumptions of how information is consumed, why it’s consumed change for these natives. Apps are how they access the internet.. How they see the world..
You have to think of them fundamentally differently. Certain assumptions made do not hold. Internet/Games/Information = Mobile Phone .. Exculsively. They still don’t have PC/Laptops! For this massive population, the input space is also the reading space. There’s no “Keyboard” or “Mouse” It’s normal.. It makes sense to them.
