Local business invests in marketing education.Earnest acquisition of electric knowledge is the “secret” of the successful. Not having time for it is a choice of the poor.

If you ask a successful or rich person at 5:00 P.M. what he knows that he didn’t know at 7 A.M., he usually has an interesting answer.

Research Proves Heavy Smartphone Shopping

Business owners have to take this stuff into consideration when they’re trying to figure out why the phone isn’t ringing. Websites have to be precise, clear, and informative to make navigation easy on consumers who are in ‘ready-to-buy’ phase. What do you need to know?

What Are Consumers Doing With Their Tablets and Smartphones?

(And why does that matter to you?)

Smartphones make finding locations simple, and convenience is the reason why 73% of people using them find you with their smartphones vs 43% of tablet users. Neither number is anything to sneeze at. If this is how people find you, how important is it to represent your business conveniently for them, too?
