Why not app advisory?
Think about it. What do over half of your customers have? Smartphones. And easy access to the app store. What they don’t have is a trusted app “curator” – someone who can recommend the best apps.
What would that look like? I’ll start us off:
- Best new apps of the month
- Popular apps
- Apps connected to a season (i.e., it’s summer, so apps with grilling suggestions. Yes, they exist).
- Suggestions on how to use an app
- And of course, you’d mention library-related apps. Ebook apps. Your ILS app, if you have one. etc.
This also means that we would need to have easy access to apps, and have a small app budget. And a variety of smartphones and tablets – both iOS and Android – to play with.
App recommendation for your community. Could be cool. What do you think?
