Mobile Searches Continue to Rise ... But Why Not, Who Doesn't Have a Cellphone?
It has never been more important than it is now to ensure your website is mobile-friendly and mobile-optimized. Recent studies suggest that more than 80% of internet searches are performed on a mobile device or smart phone, and if that isn’t a surprise then perhaps this is: Google is now separating desktop, tablet, and mobile search results (voice search is next). That means that a search you perform from your laptop will not necessarily return the same results or ranking that you might get on your smartphone. Is your website optimized for mobile search?
Mobile Search Marketing is not just about location, it’s about targeting your local AND potential audience. Mobile devices travel all over the world, and while you can focus on selling to those who live in your area, you can also reach: those newly relocated, just visiting, looking to move, conducting short term business, around the corner, anywhere in your city or nearby.
Either way, an established objective is an essential part of any marketing strategy and mobile marketing is no different. With so many options at your disposal, pushing your company, brand visibility, services, products, offers, into the hands of mobile devices users nearby will only increase your sales, customer base, and brand visibility.
