Why Small Businesses Need a Mobile Optimized Website ASAP

Yodle and Research Now polled 400 US small businesses. What’s shocking (according to this poll) is that 40% of small businesses have not implemented either a mobile optimized website nor mobile optimized emails or SMS marketing.

There is so much opportunity out there with a mobile optimized website. More traffic, more leads, more product sales, etc. Everyone is mobile (has a smartphone and/or tablet). Over half of web traffic is mobile. Mobile users buy more (according to one Adobe report).

Google favors mobile responsiveness (think search engine placement ranking). If you use Social Media such as Twitter, Facebook, or Pinterest in your small business marketing strategy, referral links off your social media posts mean that incoming website traffic will be accessed via mobile devices. NOT having a mobile optimized website is just leaving money on the table.
