Why Is Mobile So Important for Growing Businesses

How many times do you check your phone a day?  Chances are it’s a lot!

The average person spends about 2 hours and 57 minutes per day on their smartphone or tablet – and 4 out of 5 consumers use their smart phone to shop!  When we’re on-the-go, our phones and tablets are what keep us connected to the digital world.

According to Bloomberg business, time spent on mobile devices is growing when compared to time spent watching TV.  While this doesn’t mean that people are turning off their TVs, it does mean that they are spending more and more time flipping through content on their phones.

As a business owner, you want to make sure that your message is being seen where your customers spend their time.  This is why it’s so important that businesses take the time to optimize their marketing for mobile phones.   In the digital age, this means optimizing your marketing for mobile.  With a unique, interactive mobile experience, you can empower your customers, create new sales channels and generate clear ROI.
