Over fifty percent of the United States has a cell phone and the number is growing higher as each day passes. With the increasing capabilities of mobile phones the number of people who own Smartphones that have access to the internet is growing as well which should be of interest to any business owner.
Why? Because the mobile community no longer stops long enough to read through mailers or sometimes even through their daily newspaper. Since it is all available on their cell phone there is no need to stop while on the go so you have to find a new way to reach them, and that answer is social networking.
Almost all smartphones have apps that provide immediate access to social groups such as Facebook, Myspace, Twitter, and many more social networks. What’s more, mobile users are the largest growing population of the traffic that visits these websites daily. Thus, if you get your business linked into a social network you have an immediate way to reach consumers you may otherwise never have the opportunity to target.
Just think about, if it’s a Saturday and you own a restaurant send out the lunch specials in the morning and by the afternoon your consumer base will know that you have a special. What is more, they are most likely out of their homes and in the position to take the bite and stop by. The options are limitless and mobile communities are growing now; so start cashing in or get left out in the dark!
