Time is money when you’re a small business owner, and you probably don’t have time to scour the Internet trying to find every application you need to promote or expand your small business. One small business that can help yours is an apps store. These pull together mobile and web apps for you, saving you precious time. Laurie McCabe at Small Business Computing explains why you need to care about app stores:
“App stores can help streamline the application shopping and selection process, providing a one-stop shop for finding, trying and buying small business applications. Many of these marketplaces feature cloud-based solutions …that you can trial for free and purchase in a flexible, pay-as-you go model. They often offer free apps as well. And, they feature user generated ratings and comments to help guide your decision-making process.
An app store can help you more easily locate new small business software that will work with apps you already use, adding them in an incremental, yet integrated manner.”
for an app, find online reviews and then try it out. Chances are you’ll miss software that you didn’t even realize existed. At least with an app store you can see what your options are and do your own research to find the right product for you.
