Here’s why you need to have an app for your E-Commerce business
The list keeps going on but in short mobile apps are your one-stop solutions to increase conversions, brand awareness, and customer loyalty.
You have a fully functional app for your E-commerce business now, what next?
There are 2.87 million apps on the Google play store and 1.96 million on the Apple app store. The job isn’t done once the app is developed. It is important to keep a check on the functionalities and optimize it so that the app is serving its purpose well.
Optimizing your app based on user behavior and their interactions with the app seems to help with the increase in conversions and build a better user experience.
Heatmaps are a graphical representation of the user’s interactions on the mobile screen using colors. Warmer colors indicate the highest activity whereas colder colors indicate the lowest activities.
Heatmaps help in understanding how the users interact with your app. This analytics can help you in optimizing your mobile apps for a better customer experience.
Let's see how we can optimize the app using Heatmaps with these proven ideas.
Do you feel your users are not completing their purchases and you don’t know where you are lagging?
You can use heatmaps to A/B test different variations and use the data to get insights on where you are going wrong and optimize them.
To sum up, users tend to choose an app over a mobile site even though the site is fast and responsive. However, it is vital to make sure the app is optimized to give your users a great shopping experience. Heatmaps are a great source for businesses to understand the users better and optimize the different elements of the app to serve their needs.
With better user experience comes better revenue, better reviews, more users, among other things. But what exactly is User Experience (UX)? And why does it have a huge impact on your app?
