Back in June we announced we would be extending our service to building bespoke mobile apps for others.
We have just been honoured to build 2 conference apps for Interpretation Australia's conference in Canberra this October, and for the World Indigenous Network. Both will be available on the app stores in the coming days.
There are a few good reasons to go mobile with an app for your next conference:
1. Over 1.2 Billion people are accessing the internet through a mobile device
2. About 80% of the time spent on mobile phones is spent using apps
3. 52% of smart phone owners check their device a few times per hour or more
4. 85% of phone users prefer mobile apps to websites
We wanted each conference delegate to have all the information they needed to make their conference experience great, right in the palm of their hands. This included helping with travel and accommodation bookings, and being able to schedule the sessions they were interested as a calendar integration.
Our apps enable delegates to look at the venue map and speaker bios so they don’t arrive feeling flustered and disorientated. We integrated live direction feeds, so delegates can’t get lost on their way to, or inside the venue. International and out of state delegates no longer need to work out how to arrive at the venue or their accommodation on time. We even included transportation links for Uber, taxis, buses and trains to make moving around the city easy.
We made them social. With just a single tap attendees can easily get in touch with other delegates, presenters, sponsors and exhibitors through several internal social channels, even before the conference starts. The social channels are live feeds too, so people can join in real-time conversations and share their Instagram, Facebook and Twitter posts before, at and after the event, all inside the app.
We used push notifications to get instant attention. Push notifications in apps achieve a 90% open rate and are more effective than SMS and social media posts - they are a useful tool to communicate speaker deadlines, upcoming sessions, or changes in the program. If our clients need the instant attention of conference stakeholders they can contact them right away - or schedule push notifications for a better time.
We make an impact even after the conference. Attendees are conference’s best advocates. Our app continues to encourage delegates to share their experiences, videos and photos. Social sharing elevates the popularity of the conference, and leads to return delegates who are connected. Who knows - perhaps new business opportunities and networks will form after your conference? Your app will continue to keep them connected.
We make apps that are affordable. Our apps only cost $2700 plus a $100 ongoing monthly maintenance fee (for as long as you want the app to be operational and kept up to date). Usually bespoke apps cost $8000-$25000. Indigital feels this price range is unachievable for Indigenous Peoples which is why we have established a set price fee for everyone.
We make apps quickly. If you need an app in a hurry, our apps can be developed within 7 days.
We make lots of kinds of apps. If you would like a conference app, a retail app, a school app, a music channel app, a sporting group app, a local tourism app - or you have ideas for another kind of app, please get in touch with Mikaela at email@example.com or 0420700176.
