The Mobile App Setup Process
Are you thinking about getting a mobile app for your boutique? You've come to the right place! Here, we will give you all of the info you need to decide if a mobile app is right for your business, and explain the process of getting your mobile app set up with us! Let's dive in!
First, how do you know if your business is the right size for a mobile app? A good rule of thumb is that once you are hitting $10,000 in sales per month, it's time to start thinking about getting a mobile app. If you are doing $15k+, it is time to get the process started!!
Why do we recommend a mobile app for your business? Easy!
A mobile app is the easiest way to make sure you really own your customer base. With push notifications, you can keep your inventory and sales top-of-mind with your customers.
Another reason? Diversity! The more channels you have, the bigger your reach will be! At CommentSold, we particularly love the mobile app channel for sales because it keeps your customers focused specifically on your brand and your product. There isn't any outside noise or distraction; it's all about your business in the app!
Most importantly, the mobile app is a great way to grow sales. We have seen consumers buying through the app versus other channels are spending 4x as much money! What other reason could you need!?
Okay, so now that you're totally convinced you need a mobile app, you probably want to know how it all works. I'm sure you've got one big question: how much is this going to cost me?
For a mobile app, we require a commitment from you of at least $500 per month in commission. But let me be clear; this is not in addition to the commission you already pay to us. If you are on a plan where you pay 5% commission to us and you are doing at least $10,000 in sales per month, there is no additional cost for you to have an app. Likewise, if you are on a plan where you pay 3% commission to us and you are doing at least $17,000 in sales per month, there is no additional cost for you to have an app.
If you have an app and fall short of those monthly sales amounts, you would only pay the difference that your commission did not cover. For example, if you are on a plan where you pay 3% in commission and you do $14,000 in sales, your commission to us would be $420 for those sales. For the app, you would only owe an additional $80. Not bad! We also give you a grace period once your app launches to give you plenty of time to ramp up your sales before we start charging you!
Now that you know the basics, let's dive in to what we need from you to get your mobile app set up!
