D2C Agency: Design, Build & Grow Your Branded App

Design, Build & Grow Your Branded App

Branded Apps for a D2C business play a critical part in branding & customer customer retention. However, relevance & timing is important. 

A branded app is a pivotal element for D2C businesses, contributing significantly to branding and customer retention. However, its development should be timed strategically. Designing and building a branded E-Commerce App is resource-intensive, and growing app installs and usage can be costly. 

Therefore, it’s crucial to undertake this endeavor at the right moment, considering metrics like Customer Acquisition Cost (CAC) versus Lifetime Value (LTV) and other budget considerations. The app serves as an unparalleled consumer touchpoint, enhancing branding, customer retention, and increasing LTV. The ultimate success is retaining customers even after 21 days of installation, signifying a significant achievement.

THINGS team has a proven track record in iPhone & Android Apps, showcased by the success of our shopping app, Sweet Couch. Apple Inc. recognized Sweet Couch as the most inspiring Shopping App in the Indian App Store for over a year. During Apple CEO Tim Cook’s visit to India, only four startup founders were selected for an exclusive meeting with Tim Cook, and among them was Rajesh Chokhani, the founder of Sweet Couch and now the founder behind THINGS.
