Agency Spotlight: Visual Apps boosts small businesses digital marketing
Written by Christophe Spinetti on
Can you introduce us to your agency?
We had initially created an app for our restaurant with another app builder but we were not satisfied. It was while looking at other app builders that we discovered GoodBarber. We first invested time and resources to study the platform and master the CMS. And our choice naturally turned to the platform for its design and functionality.
The opportunity to become a reseller then presented itself.
After creating other apps with the platform, we launched our startup composed of 4 people including my wife in June 2017. Unfortunately at the same time, Apple introduced rule 4.2.6 in the App Store guidelines. This rule is for users of app generators such as GoodBarber. And it was only in December 2017 that Apple updated the wording of rule 4.2.6 to provide clarification .
The situation stopped our core business to offer iOS native apps to our clients. Our partners left us along the way but we decided to continue working on Visual Apps with my wife.
We don’t regret having persevered because since then, our agency has carried more than 50 apps projects all channels combined, all created with the GoodBarber platform.
What kind of services do you offer?
We remain transparent on the use of a platform for the development of our mobile apps, as this is what allows us to be competitively priced and reactive.
We have worked with our partners and clients to design custom apps to meet their specific needs.
We also offer apps promotion tools such as video and print. Today we’re moving towards online advertising and the creation of digital workshops always focused on mobile and digital.
Which of your apps has been the most successful?
- Cassiopée Animations : the association of the merchants of Grand Rodez
- DCF Aveyron : Commercial Managers of France
- The ROC Aveyron Handball
- La Petite Roul'hotte: food-truck from Aveyron
- The Epicureans Club in Aveyron
- The Junior Economic Chamber of Rodez
SisMiC (Sud Macif Central) is an association created in 2010 to ensure the development of digital technologies in rural territories, of which I recently took over the presidency.
How do you feel about the evolution of mobile use in the near future?
Which GoodBarber features do you like the most?
- PWA technology, a very good compromise between websites and mobile apps.
- A single content management interface for all our partners and clients
- A constantly updated app on the 3 distribution channels: Web, iOS and Android
- The new eCommerce features: online payment, scheduled in-store pick-up, local deliveries essential in the context of the health crisis.
What action have you implemented during the 1st lockdown (March-April 2020)?
We would like to mention the unconditional support for this project of the company Licornecom , of Cassiopée , the association of the merchants of Grand Rodez and of 12ème Sens , the federation of the associations of the merchants of Aveyron.
