Course Description
If you own a small business, you know that you need a mobile app. Over 30% of traffic on the internet now comes from mobile devices, and that number is growing. If you don't have a mobile app, you're missing out on a huge number of new customers.

Why Doesn't Everyone Have a Mobile App?

The problem is that having a mobile app developed for you is expensive. The average mobile app costs $5,000  $15,000 for just one app on one marketplace. Well, not anymore! You can build your own mobile app for pennies on the dollar and publish to all the major marketplaces.You don't need to be an app developer to build your own small business app, and you don't need any computer programming experience.

We'll even show you how to create a mobile website absolutely free and redirect customers using their mobile phone to the more user friendly version of your site. Employing a mobile app and a mobile website is guaranteed to attract more traffic and generate more sales for your business.
