4 Important Lessons from Line Man App (Delivery Service App) to be Considered by Delivery Startups.
#1. Know the user’s concerns and provide a platform for their needs
The important lesson from the Line Man app for all the delivery startups is to offer what your customers have missed in other on demand apps. Line, the messaging app, came with a concept of meeting the daily concerns of its users. Being, a 218.4million monthly active users platform, it had the audience who would engage in such on demand mobile apps.
You can develop your delivery app by studying the actual needs of your users. For instance, if there is a need for developing a courier delivery app like Uber for your niche, but you end up developing another food delivery app. The food app will not get desirable traffic or revenue generation. So, whether you are developing on demand delivery app for food or developing grocery delivery apps, remember, you supply an item which has high market demand.
#2. Line Man went online with apt prospects for local people
Mobile internet user growth has transformed user behavior in Thailand. Line Man app was developed to serve the purpose of online to offline delivery business and flourish the employment opportunities for local people. The local street food hawkers and restaurants are getting more exposure being on the platform. With different services from courier to taxi booking, the people are getting more business and livelihood.
