When they check out your website on their cell phone do they give up in frustration?
It used to be people used their cell phones to call people.
Then texting emerged as the communication method of choice.
Now your iPhone, Android, or tablet lives with you 24/7.
Pry my cell phone from my cold dead hands…
It’s your alarm clock, calendar, camera, camcorder, game console, email, and web surfing device all rolled into one.
Oh how things have changed…
So what does that mean to me and you?
Customer buying methods have changed
Imagine how people come to choose where to shop. What to buy. Who to listen to, etc.
Whether they’re checking Yelp ratings, searching Google, searching local listings on the Google Maps app on their phone. Their mobile device is now their connection to the world…and that means your world too.
If you think someone is going to search the yellow pages for a business you’re kidding yourself. If you think they’re always going to search on their computer, you’re blind.
People are busy. They’re out and about. And they aren’t going to go home, boot up their computer, and search for a place to eat, somewhere to get their oil changed, etc.
They’re going to search on their phone or tablet while they’re running errands or out with friends.
So if your business relies on customers. And what businesses don’t. And if you are a local business that is the prime target of people doing searches on their phones. Then you need to check out your site.
Is it Mobile Friendly?
Check out the video that walks you through how to make sure.
It is a quick video and an even faster check (30 seconds from the time you click on the website) and you’ll know if you’re set.
If not then you need to get to work and get it into mobile friendly status ASAP.
If not you might as well be burning up hundred dollar bills.
Now go see if your online presence is mobile friendly. Your small business future depends on it.
