Top 10 Reasons Why Your Business Should Go Mobile

The first quarter of 2012 is coming to an end and I find it strange that there are still people out there that don’t believe Mobile is going  to catch on. The are probably the same people back in the late-90′s-early 200o’s that didn’t believe that the internet was going to catch on and that they would NEVER need a website for their business. Let’s get a show of hands. How many of you naysayers that thought the internet wouldn’t catch on, have websites? My point exactly!!

Mobile is already a vital part of our everyday life and business owners who think they don’t need mobile for their business are CRAZY. At the lowest level, every business MUST have a mobile website. If you have a regular website you need to get it mobile optimized. Please read mobile optimized, don’t let some web hack convince you that shrinking your site to fit the screen of a mobile phone is a mobile optimized website. It’s not.

Seriously, resistance to mobile if futile. Starting adopting some sort of mobile strategy NOW before your competition does. Lastly, don’t take my word for it look at the Top 10 Reasons Why Mobile is a Must written by my partners at TapForMyApp

Mobilize Your Business TODAY in 3 Easy Steps

I’ve written several blogs posts about mobilizing your business, but I found this blog post on my friend Kim Dushinski’s page Mobile Marketing Profits and had to share.

Given that nearly everyone on the planet who is old enough to be a potential customer of yours (explored fully here) has a mobile phone, it is imperative that your business takes steps to mobilize now. If your customers haven’t already interacted with you on mobile, they will. Mobilizing simply means making it easy for your customers to interact with you via mobile and determining the best way to reach out to them via mobile with relevant information for them.

Let me start with why the first two steps I am going to share with you are not optional. It is quite simply because the choice to interact via mobile is not in your control, it is literally in the hands of your customer. It is their decision whether to visit your website using their phone, tablet or their desktop computer. If they choose to use their phone and your site is not mobile friendly, then you lose.

Same goes with checking email. If they happen to check email using mobile and your email is too big and bulky to be read easily on the small screen, then it is your email that is ignored. The choice of using mobile is theirs, not yours. Not optional, see what I mean?
