One of the hottest opportunities for businesses and marketers today is connecting with the billions of cell phone users through mobile apps.
Both Apple’s iPhone and Google’s Android are gaining more and more users every day, users with their wallets ready to spend money and ready to use apps to find what they are looking for right from their phones instead of desktop or laptop computers.
This article explains how to take advantage of these opportunities using app builders now available through Main Street Marketing Machines.
Face it, unless you’ve been living under a rock, you either own or know someone who owns a smart phone. Chances are pretty good that you’ve seen an Apple iPhone or Google Android phone. With billions of users and millions of downloads of mobile apps for these phones, you can see the opportunity for businesses.
Build an app to showcase your business, get yourself listed in mobile search rankings and outsmart, outposition and out market your competition! In fact, if your business is not being found in mobile search now, it’s going to virtually completely disappear from your target customer’s radar in the next few years.
So, how can you stop this from happening? Easy, get yourself a personalized mobile app for your business. But how do you do it you ask?
Well, there are three major ways of going about it.
1) You can hire a professional app developer and pay tens of thousands of dollars and wait in line for them to get around to creating your app. You can find dozens of developers online just by doing a Google search for “iPhone App Developers.”
2) You can get yourself a copy of Apple’s app development software and the Google Android developer kit and spend some serious quality time learning how to do it yourself. It’s readily available, just Google search iPhone Developers Kit and follow the instructions Apple gives you.
3) Finally, you can use a template builder to build your personalized app quickly and painlessly.
There are several template builders for apps available apk zoom on the market now, but the easiest for businesses and marketers that I’ve found is the iPhone and Android app builders available as part of Main Street Marketing Machines from Mike Koenigs and the good folks over at Traffic Geyser.

These template programs like Main Street Marketing Machines usually grew out of some other would-be developer trying to make the development process easier.
MSMM for example evolved from a beta test called Firepower that I participated in. The system is really designed as a complete done for you marketing system to allow Internet Marketers to get paid by local businesses for helping those businesses to get found online and get new customers from that, but the iPhone and Android development templates are awesome resources for those wanting to design their own mobile apps.
