Unless you own a tech company that builds and sells apps, chances are your small business does not have the knowledge or  capability of creating an app on your own.  There are plenty of companies out there to choose from. Cost Factors Mobile apps are all different.  They have a number of moving parts, and each one of them impacts the cost.  Primary examples that affect cost:Platform Functionality DesignLike every other aspect of mobile technology, app building is getting faster, easier and better.  Mobile vs. Desktop "Within the last few years the world has seen mobile usage surpass desktop.  Mobile technology and availability are spurring on the growing trend of people accessing the Internet through their mobile devices, rather than desktops and laptops.  This mobile usage is mostly spent on apps, which means businesses need to have a custom-built app developed to

  One of the biggest benefits of having a mobile app for your small business is always being within reach.  Always being available will help strengthen your connection to the customer and in return, strengthen your brand. Building brand recognition  "The more your audience trusts you, the more likely they’ll be to listen to later sales pitches and even commit to your brand.  With an app, you’ll demonstrate to your users why they should trust you by showing, rather than telling, what your brand stands for." - 4 Ways Your Business Can Benefit From Having a Mobile AppLooking to learn more about how QC Total Tech can help your small business create its own mobile app?  Give us a ring at 563-823-1114 or fill out our form at  http://www.qctotaltech.com/contact-us/ and a team member will be in touch shortly.

On the outside, DIY web building solutions advertise having lots of choices, great looks, and easy operation (some of which are actually true). Sadly, until you buy it won't know the limitations of a site made with a DIY builder. The Backside DIY website builders are filled with so much code on the backside in an attempt to have everything you may need while building your site.Now, what if you do not need all these options?  Nothing you can do, unfortunately.  They are built into the site and will impact your site's overall speed and load time. SEO? Do I need to worry about SEO? If you are a business interested in standing apart from your competitors, then YES! You can’t rely on a DIY site as your long term business plan. Every part of a site counts, from the way it's coded to

The experience your potential customers have while browsing your website can make or break their decision to invest in your product or services.  These days, people want information, and they want it fast.  Website Performance If your website is your main source of revenue, then it makes sense to pay for the best hosting you can get, because it’s going to have a direct impact on how much money your business makes. What Causes This Poor Performance? There are a few things that are taken into consideration for slow website performance.  Web servers are the first thing you should take a look at.  Even if a DIY site builder has powerful servers, you also need to consider that your site is one of many hosted by their servers. You Get What You Pay For! Hosting servers are the base for everything you do!  From your Google

Set yourself apart from your competition. Tailored To You In order to captivate people's attention, your business should have a site that is custom built for your company, to grab your customers and/or clients. A DIY website builder isn't going to give you that since they are created to look and do basically the same things. One Size Just Doesn't Fit All "Customization is ALWAYS required because no matter how much you may like the look of a template, there is always some feature that doesn’t quite meet your needs.  You can spend more time trying to fit into or change a template than developing a site from scratch.  If you do happen to find one that meets your needs, do you really want to look like the potentially hundreds of other sites out there that picked the same template?" - When DIY becomes OMGIf

 You’ve worked hard to build your business.  Now all you want is to get it out there for everyone to see.  The best way to reach as many potential clients as possible is through building an informative, user friendly web site.  While you may want to save money, a DIY website builder is not the best way to do that. Time & Effort You built it so that makes it yours, doesn't it? Probably not!Make sure you read the terms and conditions before signing because most DIY builders have it in their terms that they can cut off your site at any time.  They are known to change anything at any point in time and if you violate their policy, they can turn off your account.The worst part is that if you decide to terminate early, you won't be able to keep your site.
