There is nothing more satisfying for an app developer but to know that his app is being used and enjoyed by many app users. Furthermore, it’s more fulfilling to know that the app got loyal users who keep the app on their device for long.
App engagement and retention pertains to how active users use the app and their loyalty in keeping it installed on their device. More than 10 sessions per month are good and ideal.
Here’s how you can ensure engagement and retention for your app:
Provide a seamless app experience
Providing a smooth app experience can increase user lifetime value and can reduce abandon rates. An app user wants an application without hassles.
Use Push Notifications
Push notifications remind users that they have your app installed and encourage app usage. Push notifications can be used to give app users reasons to use the app again by informing them about promotions and incentives.
Customize app experience
Customizing your app based on user’s preferences and profile can lead to continued use of the app. Irrelevant notifications can annoy app users and they might uninstall the app.
App users love incentives and special promos. The more you make your app users happy, the more they use the app and will keep the app installed.
Update apps and make sure it’s always functional
Update the app regularly. Fix bugs and add more features based on app users’ suggestions and feedback. Listening to what users have to say and improving the app can keep them interested and engaged.
The success of an app does not end with the acquisition. Engagement and retention are also important factors in converting app users into loyal customer which will ensure generation of more revenue for your app.
