智慧型手機崛起，除了傳統的廣播、平面、電視之外，手機上的App行動行銷已成一股趨勢。App具備連網與多媒體特性，除了更能跟消費者互動，還可置入產品宣傳，達到一舉數得的效果。到底App行銷有哪些成功案例值得效法？其中有什麼需要注意的撇步嗎？ 提供服務，廣告只能當做「順便」 手機App的使用者可決定保留或刪除該App。跟據市場表現可以發現優秀的App重點是「服務」。調查所知手機App分為「實用」與「有趣」兩種。如能融入使用者的習慣，被移除的機率將大大降低。市場充斥很多「一分鐘App」，即使能吸引下載安裝，也難逃被移除的命運，就是因為置入太多廣告與產品訊息等商業成份較多，結果惹人嫌惡。 持續保持App更新 品牌App最明顯分別是，常以專案發包，僅做單次宣傳活動。但往往是為了某項特定活動等而製作。但缺點是活動截止或推廣期一過，App就會停止更新，只能活動時間內吸引下載量。若想推出代表性App，更新頻率是重要一環，資訊不但要時常更新還要緊貼時間，才能一直吸引目光減少被移除的機會。 若想長遠發展App，應把App發展放入行銷計劃中，並由獨立部門全權負責；各種宣傳活動也需要流程與規劃安排，保持消費者使用App的持續度，才能增加曝光機會，也幫品牌帶來效益。 機會只有一次 品牌App對使用者來說，幾乎等於品牌化身；從介面及設計、操作等都影響對品牌感受。如為求快速上架，而事後發現App有功能不齊全、畫面粗糙等問題。不但無法發揮成效，還會有反效果，影響形象。 由此可知，推出成功的品牌App並不容易，但亦有許多可遵循的要點。研究過程的確需要時間調整及思考，但若肯花些心思構想，探討App怎樣符合客戶需求？如何設計更貼近品牌精神？若設計完善，後續帶來的效益將遠遠超過想像！

One of the hottest new apps on the Hong Kong market is the SodaCard app. SodaCard is a rewards company that works with different restaurants and establishments around Hong Kong that provides rewards to customers based on their visits to each place. All Soda cards and the app are complimentary and are designed to be used at affiliated establishments to provide loyalty rewards. The customer receives points per check in with the app which provides location based services for checking in. The rewards are different at each establishment and being able to cash out the rewards is different as well.
For instance, if the customers have checked in and received a certain amount of points, there are different rewards with each establishment and a different reward system. Notably, it is easy to understand that with the more points collected the bigger the reward. For instance, Hokkaido Dairy Farm, whom is a restaurant member of the SodaCard App, offers milk teas, lunch sets and snacks as their rewards. It is to be noted that the SodaCard app only requires customers to check in at the establishments and does not require purchases.
The SodaCard app has checkin points available near a point of sale where the customers are encouraged to take a physical card or use their phone app to take a picture. Both foreign and local establishments have decided to get this app and help contribute to their business as well as the entire Hong Kong F&B market. The Soda app has been developed to drive brand loyalty and awareness in the region and it seems to be a success so far.
The SodaCard team created a sleek and sexy Soda app that keeps the customer engaged and visually pleased. The app is easy to access and streamlined so there is no questioning when it comes navigation. The app is delivered in Chinese or English and the app design is flawless in either language.

The Entertainer app is a new luxury app available around Asia and the Middle East. The app provides discounts and deals based on location and where you are looking for deals. In the land of hk apps development, The Entertainer is a timely addition with low cost discount companies like Groupon coming along. Although with The Entertainer, their rival may be Twangoo online, but we have yet to see them do any HK app development.
Within the Hong Kong community, it is widely known that luxury is a must in Hong Kong. When it comes to luxury brands and the local culture, everyone is always hunting for a deal. The Entertainer app provides deals on location bases, so when you are walking around a certain area or city, you are provided with all the deals for that area. Unlike Groupon, which is free, The Entertainer proves its luxury status by only taking customers who buy the physical book or the app. The price varies depending on what package you buy but starts at around $150 HKD or above.
The app developer who created The Entertainer app made sure to keep it light and adaptable to location, as it clearly updates every time you move location. If using the map while transporting across Hong Kong you can see the updates as you move. It’s a great distribution asset when thinking of HK app development. As the app trends become different, it’s important for developers to focus on new and improved aspects when it comes to customers viewing experiences. There are a lot of apps that may be useful but from a UX standpoint don’t hold up. Well planned and developed UX is crucial in app design, especially in Hong Kong where there are a plentiful amount of app developers around. A team that can specialize with a unique product and well designed UX, will be a winning team.
Another luxury of The Entertainer is that it is not only Hong Kong specific, the development team took into account the frequency of travel in Hong Kong. People here as among other large Asian cities, travel with ease and would definitely like the ability to reap benefits from the most frequented destinations such as : Dubai, Singapore, Johannesburg and London. One of the best deals, especially for travelers, is that The Entertainer offers 2 for 1 nights stay when it comes to hotels around the world. Obviously, prices and dates may vary but when thinking of traveling and using a discount app while still maintaining a sense of luxury, The Entertainer goes above and beyond
