How to Create the Definitive Event App

 

apps, app store, phone, iPhone, Android, businessThere’s an app for pretty much everything these days, but sadly the create event apps app is not yet to be found. In the meantime, for those creating apps to support, enhance and complement events there are many things to consider. This short post lets you know what the most important things are to ensure you have the definitive event app next time around.

Target Audience

An app can’t and shouldn’t be intended for everyone. Take a little bit of time to work out exactly who the intended audience is. It is clearly for your attendees but not all will likely download it. Perhaps find out what type of people downloaded your last event app, define their needs and go from there.

With an idea of the target audience, try and narrow down what sort of people they are. How old, how tech and app savvy are they and do they need to network at the event? These answers will steer you in the right direction to getting the app sorted.

Without overly stereotyping, the younger more tech savvy will appreciate a more detailed app, while the older and less tech aware may well get more from something more straight-forward. This does not mean that you should not aim for an easy to use app that a child can find their way round; because you should.

Focus

The aspect that will bring your app together in a successful format is focus. It will keep the quantity of information under control and the quality high. Focus should also allow you to keep the content that you provide small enough that it works on a small smartphone screen.

While focus is a must, it can be a good idea to give your attendees the start point to find out more about the area that they are in.  For Example, you could give a link to a useful information page with key numbers, respectable hotels and transportation options.

Get your app out there

The last aspect to consider is how you’ll get your app to the people that need it. It is going to need to be highly publicized; include links in emails, within your social media presence and of course on your website.
