Mobile developers are offering businesses a wealth of new technology to grow their businesses in 2017, and the innovation shows no signs of slowing down. New trends in mobile technology are making it even more crucial than ever for businesses to develop or strengthen their mobile marketing strategy.

The potential for revenue alone is a major reason why so many businesses need to consider and embrace the trends in mobile apps in the upcoming year. First of all, experts predict over 250 billion app downloads next year. With those 250+ billion apps calling consumers smartphones’ home, US$77 billion dollars in revenue will result from mobile marketing efforts sent to those apps.

Most businesses cannot afford to pass up on the opportunity to take a piece of the US$77 billion dollar market that mobile apps are forecast to generate. Remember, more and more devices like wearables and tablets are becoming consumers’ go-to devices, so desktop-oriented websites are only going to reach a fraction of your audience. The speed in which innovation is happening in the mobile space is absolutely incredible, and it’s safe to say that more innovation will continue — who knows what else 2017 will bring?
