Getting ready for the mobile web with your home business. Now your customers are locked and loaded with smartphones and tablets that give them access to all the information that they need while they are on the go.
This could be a new source of web traffic. Do you have a mobile website for your business? You might be missing the boat if you don’t have one. What will your website look like when a potential customer opens up the web browser on their apple iphone? Will they see a bunch of junk and decide to open up the mobile website of your competitor? The older cell phones are going the way of the dinosaur. Sure people like to have a backup cell phone that they can make a lot of calls with, but smartphones and tablets are the future. Better yet, they are the present.
When apple unleashed the web traffic, they opened up a whole new world for business. Now business owners have to get off the dime and get ready to deal with these new customers that are ready to deal while they are on the go.
Smartphones allow web users to get all the info they need and they can make purchasing decisions fast. Smartphones have location based services to help them find businesses just with the touch of a finger. Getting your business information in the right places and the right format online is going to be crucial.
Business owners have to make it easier to do business. Get ready to ramp up your online offers for the mobile crowd or you could get left behind. Think about your business as if it was a burger joint. There are two types of restaurants that you could run. You could have a regular sit down burger joint, or you could make sure that your burger place has a drive thru window. People have cars and you could serve many more customers with a drive thru. The business that thinks ahead and takes advantage has a better chance of success.
Embrace the new technology and see how it can help your business. It is hard to believe but there are still a lot of businesses that don’t even have a website yet. Now mobile is starting to take off. Don’t be in that group. Get your business ready to deal with the real change that is under way. Smartphones and tablet computers are getting more people involved with computing and getting things done. They don’t have to be great at typing and they don’t have to take a long time to learn a computer operating system. They can be up and running in a few minutes and all they need to work with a powerful computer is a finger.
