Tap into the 130 million Americans who...
Are searching for you on their mobile devices
Estimates predict a combined 20 million iPads and Kindle Fires were sold last holiday season. That’s proof that mobile computing was this year’s big ticket item, and also opens the door for business owners who haven’t resolved a New Year’s Resolution for their business.
The most popular tech gadgets - the Apple iPad 2 and the Amazon Kindle Fire aren’t just for fun - they represent a golden opportunity for anyone who made a resolution to get more business from the Web in 2012.
Why you should care:
The good news and bad news: Your website will look the same on most tablets as it does on a standard computer, but it may seem unusable on a smartphone. The fix is easy. Get a mobile version of your website. This will ensure each and every tablet displays an easy-to-read version of your website regardless of the visitor’s screen size, operating system, or web browser.
It is important to keep this in mind - mobile computing and social media go together like peanut butter and jelly. It’s what people are doing when you see them staring at their phones and iPads. In fact, Facebook revealed that more than half of its 845 million users access the site via a mobile device (Facebook IPO - 2012). An easy way to get your business “mobile-ready” for those 400 million + users is to set up your Facebook Business Page. Social media can be a major resource for your small business in 2012 if you start using it now. If you have questions about mobile devices or social media, contact us. We’ll give you free, helpful advice.
