Tailored Touches: Elevating Mobile User Engagement

June 26, 2024

In today's digital landscape, personalization is not just a luxury but an expectation. Mobile apps that deliver tailored experiences see significantly higher engagement and conversion rates. Recent studies indicate that 76% of consumers are more likely to purchase from brands that provide personalized offers and recommendations, while 60% of consumers say they’ll become repeat customers after a personalized shopping experience (Exploding Topics) Furthermore, personalization efforts lead to a 27% higher retention rate for mobile apps compared to those that do not personalize (Storyly). These statistics underscore the vital role that personalized mobile experiences play in retaining users and driving sales.

Virtual Try-On

Evolving smartphones, equipped with powerful cameras and sensors, open up a myriad of features that can enhance user engagement and boost conversion rates in mobile apps. One standout feature our team built was the ability for customers to virtually try on shoes, clothing, accessories, and any of their favorite products. This technology allows customers to experience the ownership of the product and see how products will look on them in real-time and experience the emotional draw to the item directly through their mobile devices.

With the integration of AR technology, virtual try-ons can significantly enhance the user experience by making it interactive and personalized, putting theirselves at the forefront of the purchasing decision.

Live Activities

Live Activities is an operating system feature that provides users with a glanceable and instantly accessible view into ongoing events, significantly enhancing the customer experience. By offering real-time updates and information directly on the device's lock screen or home screen. Live Activities keep users informed without requiring them to open the app. For instance, users can track delivery times, monitor fitness goals, or stay updated on live sports scores in real-time on the home screen of their phone.

Take the Kernel mobile app our team built, for example, which allows users to place food orders and pick up the order at a locker. When an order is active, the app launches a live activity that provides users with up-to-date information about their order's progress, all without needing to open the app. Utilizing features like Live Activities is gratifying to end users and removes any resistance to information they care about at that moment in time

This immediate access to information empowers users to make informed decisions quickly and builds trust with your brand, building a loyal user base for long-term success.

Customized and Targeted Content

Lastly, enhancing customer engagement through personalized “touches” across your app experience can have a profoundly positive effect on customer engagement with a brand. Imagine updating your UI dynamically to reflect the time of day, or serving tailored content based on the user’s interests, past reading/watch history, geolocation, or an encouraging welcome message with their name. Studies show that personalized experiences can significantly boost user satisfaction and retention rates. For instance, according to Segment, 44% of consumers are likely to become repeat buyers after a personalized shopping experience.

Platforms like Netflix and Spotify excel in content personalization: Netflix's recommendation engine reportedly saves the company $1 billion annually by reducing churn, while Spotify’s curated playlists contribute to a 40% increase in user engagement. This kind of content curation is not just about front-end design; it’s a comprehensive approach requiring a robust backend infrastructure. Our expertise spans React Native and web frontends, backend APIs, and DevOps, ensuring we can deliver highly personalized and engaging app experiences that drive customer loyalty and satisfaction.
