What is AppsThatPerform?

AppsThatPerform is a mobile app developer for music businesses just like yours.  If you are an musician/entertainer/performer, then you will need a custom music app created by AppsThatPerform.

Why should I have a custom music app?

A custom music app can increase revenue (sell your music right from your app,) fan satisfaction, operational efficiency, social media engagement, increase attendance to your concerts, and can have many other benefits.  The opportunities created by AppsThatPerform apps for musicians/entertainers/performers are valuable and extraordinarily cost-effective.

In addition, mobile technology is growing very quickly, and is already overtaking desktop computing in many places.  If you want to connect with your music fans, mobile is fast-becoming the most popular channel available.

Anyone who is serious about their music and appreciates the music fans who purchase their music!

We will walk you through each step of a custom app creation.  Once your app is published, you can evaluate, edit, and manage your app from any browser from your FREE - dashboard with just a few clicks. You may also download our Manage App to use on "on the go" from Android or iPhone.

What types of apps can AppsThatPerform create for me?

We produce custom apps in these three niches:

  1. Custom music apps for entertainers to interact with their music fans beyond the concert
  2. Custom church apps for better communication with members outside the walls of the church
  3. Custom school apps for private schools to communicate with parents, teachers, staff and students

    •    iOS apps – that work on Apple devices like iPhones and iPads
    •    Android apps – that work on Samsung, Google, HTC, and other devices

(I’m embarrassed to ask, but what’s an “app?”)

Once upon a time, a mobile phone just made calls.  Now, only the most basic mobile phones are call-only.  Instead, modern smartphones are powerful mini-computers that can run programs called “apps.”

More specifically, apps are those little square pictures you see when you turn on the average smartphone.  Examples include Angry Birds (a game), Gmail (for checking email), Pandora (for streaming music), and WatchESPN (for watching sports).  Basically, apps are what make smartphones “smart.”

When your music business puts out an app, music fans can download it to their smartphone and interact with your music on the go.  They can perform whatever functions you choose, from simple things looking up venue for upcoming music events, to more complicated things like purchasing music downloads through your app from iTunes for iPhone/iPad and from 7Digital for Android devices.

If I order a custom music app from AppsThatPerform, what will my app be able to do?

We have a huge wealth of powerful features we could incorporate into your app!

Here are some of the highlights:

    •    Push Notifications.  Send attractive and customized promotions, coupons, and event invites to music fans through our advanced push notification system.
    •    Loyalty Program.  Reward your regulars.
    •    Integration into iTunes and 7Digital for the purchase of music digital downloads right from your music app.
    •    Tell-a-Friend.  Customers can refer their friends through social media.
    •    GPS Directions.  To lead people right to your next concert.
    •    Custom Email Forms.

    •    Program Integration.  Your app can work seamlessly with a huge variety of your favorite apps and tools.
    •    And so much more!

How do these functions help my music business?

    •    They increase revenue.  By making it easy for music fans to interact with you, see your shows, hear about promotions, and provide referrals, you can increase your revenue.  Because apps are mobile, your music fans can do any of these things from any location, which makes your music more accessible than ever before.
    ◦    Online orders have been found to be up to 25% larger!  This includes orders submitted through apps.  Mobile users also submit orders more frequently.
    ◦    Mobile coupons are redeemed at 10x the rate of print coupons.
    •    They increase fan satisfaction.  Mobile apps, especially those that include loyalty programs, keep music fans happy , which increases fan retention and referral rates .
    ◦    Loyalty programs can increase sales by 20% or more!
    •    They increase social media engagement.  By making it easy to post about your music to social media platforms, you make it more likely that a music fan will do so.  This can turn fans into brand promoters, and help boost revenue.
    ◦    Push notifications have been found to lead to a 30% increase in social media engagement.
    •    They help you compete.  Music fans have come to expect mobile interaction from almost every entertainer.  By offering a mobile app, you can get ahead of entertainers that do not.
    •    They increase operational efficiency.  By letting music fans purchase your music downloads through your app, you can cut down printing costs for CD production and streamline getting your new music out there.  You can also track activity more easily and find areas to improve.
    •    They increase brand loyalty.  Having a direct and regular connection channel to fans deepens the bonds between them and your music, boosting loyalty. 

Mobile loyalty programs increase this even further.

In short, mobile technology is surprisingly powerful and can generate a wealth of opportunities for your music business.

How much does AppsThatPerform apps cost?

There was a time, not too long ago, when the production costs of a mobile app were out of reach for most businesses, climbing as high as 50 to 100K. However, as with most technology, the cost of production is definately more affordable today. We would love to talk with you about the many discounts we offer to hold the costs down to a manageable level. Remember, there are no costs to have your app demo created. Order your Free Demo

(Is that it?  We must be missing something.  It can’t be that easy… wow!  Nope.  We just double-checked.  It’s definitely that easy!)

Actually, for a limited time it just got easier. Purchase your app and get a FREE iPad Mini to use to manage your app. Its the best size to do it on the go! But wait... also, for a limited time, when you prepay your first year access fee of $1200 you get second FREE iPad Mini to give away in your first promotion to your music fans who download your custom music app and/or purchase your music downloads. Do this early in our promotion, which began Mar. 1st, and receive one month access FREE! This means you only pay $1100 and still get the second iPad Mini FREE (while supplies last.)

How long does it take before my app is live?

Around 14 days on the App Store and almost immediately on Google Play.

Once created, we will submit your app to the iTunes App Store and Android Market within 48 hours.  It then takes about 14 days to gain approval.  In the highly unlikely event that your app is rejected, we will make the necessary changes.  With AppsThatPerform, approval is guaranteed.
