LIGABlatt is a popular German and Turkish news site covering all things football.        Last year they decided it was time to build a presence on the App Stores. They chose MobiLoud to get them there. We sat down with Fatih Senel, LIGABlatt’s Chief Editor, for a chat about their experience.  

The Decision to Grow

  Fatih realised that their brand was losing out on readers and revenue by not having an app available to fans. He recalled that:  

“The readers wrote to us and said ‘why don’t you have an app? It is so strange to type LIGABlatt into the browser every time and search for the news’. Now we have more than 90% of our users on mobile and just 8% desktop and 2% tablet”

  This is a common story.    Increasingly, people are getting their news from apps created by brands they like and trust. Any successful publisher without a strong mobile presence is leaving engagement on the table.  

Finding MobiLoud

  LIGABlatt weighed their options. There are a lot of great app development solutions on the market, but none as tailored to digital publishers.  

“We had contact with a lot of companies but decided on MobiLoud for just one reason. The process was very simple and our MobiLoud made the adjustments we requested very quickly and affordably. With MobiLoud, we got the right solution at a good price point”

  We also have a deep integration with WordPress that makes life easier for content publishers using the world’s most popular CMS.    LIGABlatt’s team found this out too:  

Another problem was finding companies able to implement our WordPress content reliably and smoothly into a native app for Android and iOS”

  Our team got to work building them a state of the art app to their exact spec.  

“MobiLoud was able to do it very fast. We have a lifetime e license from MobiLoud. We’re now able to publish our news articles in real time with no latency, across 3 platforms – this is amazing!”

 

Launching To The App Stores And Driving Higher Traffic for LIGABlatt

  While going with the traditional option of developing an app through an agency can take many months – we build apps for our clients in just a couple of weeks on our proven platform for content publishers.      

“I asked MobiLoud how long it would take them to bring my site with over 6000 articles into the app and they said –  “1 day”.”

  Launching the apps was an exciting time for Fatih and his team, and they weren’t disappointed:   

“The moment we downloaded it from the App Store and used it was fantastic”

  It didn’t take long to start seeing the benefits of their new channel.   Positive feedback started to flow in from readers, happy that they had a more intimate and convenient way to get the content they love.   

“We got a lot of recommendations from our readers. ‘Fantastic work’ and ‘It’s so stable, so fast’…….. ‘I get push news now. I don’t have to visit LIGABlatt all the time, if something new comes up I can click it’ and many other comments too”

  Since LIGABlatt launched their app, the brand has gone from strength to strength.  

“We have increased traffic approximately 30% in one year, and this is amazing”

  It’s great to see LIGABlatt succeeding on the App Stores, and we look forward to continuing a great relationship with them – as our service includes all ongoing maintenance, updates and support.  

“If you want a lean process to bring your app to life, contact MobiLoud. The guys will bring you solutions at a very high standard for an affordable price” 

  We’re happy helping publishers to achieve great results every day.   If you’re a WordPress-based digital publisher and you’re interested in pleasing your audience and growing your traffic, revenue and brand – get in touch and let’s chat about how we can help make it happen.
