Airship AXP: Help Brands Master Mobile App Experiences (MAX)

Thomas Butta Chief Strategy & Marketing Officer

The verdict is in. Mobile apps are the key to unlocking the digital customer experience. The reason is simple: Loyal app customers produce 3.5 times more revenue than other shoppers, and  are 3 times more likely to make a repeat purchase.

But those facts come with the burden of responsibility. When it’s your job to build loyalty and revenue, the question isn’t whether to invest more in your mobile app, the question is how.

The Airship Way
Getting a person to just download an app doesn’t make for a loyal customer. In fact, after a week or two, far too many people will never open the app again. What’s needed is a way to extend the app experience from acquisition and activation through to engagement and loyalty.

That’s why we invented the Airship® App Experience Platform (AXP). It’s the only enterprise SaaS platform that’s 100% focused on helping brands master the full lifecycle of mobile app experience (MAX) management. One platform, start to finish, designed to work the way your brand should work: seamlessly.

Crossing the Chasm With AXP – Messaging outside the app experience only goes so far. Most apps lose customers in the “chasm” that occurs after Activation.

• Acquisition is about getting someone to download an app

• Activation gets them to open it and register

• Engagement is when they start interacting with the app

• Loyalty keeps them coming back

Beyond Messaging Getting past the activation phase to engagement and loyalty requires brands to adopt a “beyond messaging” mindset. It’s about creating valuable experiences that reward customers individually for their loyalty.
