Statistics showed that the global sports industry market size reached $1.3 trillion in 2017. Therefore, the sports industry offers numerous opportunities for profitable ventures in a field that is increasingly shifting its services to online mobile devices.
The advent of AppFlow will enable everyone to create robust sports mobile apps on a user-friendly web platform, and reach out to their audience, whether that’s a sports team's group of fans or betting enthusiasts. AppFlow users will be able to customize their sports app by selecting from a wide range of templates and add-ons, utilizing state-of-art technologies to deliver a unique user experience.
There are many different ways to use mobile apps in sports-related businesses, and a myriad of features to create a robust and complete service. Below we have selected a few perks that will boost your AppFlow mobile app significantly:
News Feed: With AppFlow you can create a comprehensive news service that aggregates all the latest updates across various sports. App users will be able to find relevant stories for their favorite clubs and game highlights, as well as to watch live play-by-play match coverage.
Live Streaming: More and more people tend to use their mobile devices to watch live sports games broadcasts. Live streaming has gradually turned into an essential feature, that users will be able to integrate into their mobile app via AppFlow.
Ticketing System: The ability to buy tickets for sports events through a dedicated section has become a vital feature regardless of the app’s primary usage. Users can search for seat availability and book their tickets directly, a feature that improves customer engagement by providing an additional reason for them to download and revisit the app.
Notifications: Subscribers can receive real-time alerts via push notifications or SMS on their smartphone, about game schedules, scores or betting results. Additionally, real-time alerts are an ideal way to promote a series of events that increase customer loyalty, like conducting contests and reward programs.
In-App Purchases: Advertising is the most common source to monetize mobile apps; however, it is essential for the app owners to explore additional ways to generate revenue. Hence, creating an in-app store on which visitors will be able to buy branded merchandise of their favorite teams and players can be a great alternative source of income.
Social Media Integration: Mobile apps users dislike cumbersome sign-up processes and allowing them to log in with a single-click using social media like Facebook and Twitter, can improve the conversion rate of your app. Moreover, users can share content with their social media directly, which will increase the mobile app’s exposure and, ultimately, increase its number of downloads.
