How your business can use apps to increase
market share and retain more customers
Review copies are available on request
If you thought that the app market was just about games and big brands,
think again. Businesses of every size in every sector have built their own
apps and are reaping real commercial rewards.
Because of the relatively low cost of entering the app market, smaller
enterprises can level the playing field, often outstripping their larger
competitors simply because they have developed and marketed an app
that delivers a service that their consumers are looking for.
This book isn't about how apps can help small businesses run their
business more efficiently, or an in-depth tutorial about how to create an
app for their enterprise.
Instead, it provides a unique introduction and overview of the
possibilities for any small or growing business. It's a focused guide about
the business of apps for those whose time is money.
Connecting with customers over their mobile phones and tablets allows
a more intimate and ultimately more lucrative link between businesses
and consumers to be established.
With this latest book in the popular Business Bites series, small business
owners can help their companies take the first steps into an exciting and

Emma Jones of Enterprise Nation, co-

“Small business owners have plenty to
pack into a working day and this was
reflected in the demands we were
receiving for content to be delivered in
bite size chunks. We have commissioned
authors who are experts in their fields and their tips and advice have
been packaged in an easy style. This series of eBooks will help you
increase sales, reduce costs and work more effectively. Best of all, you

The project is being backed by BlackBerry as part of its activity to
support small business. Dan Sloshberg at BlackBerry said:
“We are delighted to be sponsoring the Business Bite Size Guides. The
series offers start ups and small business owners the information they
need on topics that matter most. Content is easily accessible and can be
consumed whilst on the move. This fits well with the BlackBerry ethos
“Thanks to the iPhone and iPad that created the app market, all
businesses no matter their size or market sector can take advantage of a
new commercial channel. The ‘app’ is transforming how businesses
communicate and sell their goods or services. With mobile commerce
set to eclipse even the meteoric rise of e-commerce, the question that all
enterprises should be asking is how they can lever the massive appetite
for apps to their advantage.
There are plenty of books that can teach any
business how to build an app, but few books
look closely at the ‘business’ of apps. After
reading this book your company will have a
detailed understanding of how apps now fit
into the economic landscape.
More importantly, your business will be able to
develop its own roadmap for the creation of an app, and understand
how to market this new app and reap the commercial rewards. With
some companies now making millions of pounds from their apps, this
book is your business’ gateway into this new and profitable market.”
