AMERICAN SMARTPHONE USER PENETRATION CONTINUES TO INCREASE : New numbers from comScore indicate that nearly 70% of the “U.S. consumer market owned a smartphone in the three months through March 2014. That’s up about 11 percentage points from the three months through March 2013. Operating platform market share numbers for the period were essentially stagnant; no platform moved a full percentage point in either direction.” What this means for small business owners?
Your website had better look good on a phone! If not, you’ll die…
Research by Google concluded that 66% of smartphone users agree that they are more likely to do business with financial services such as payday loans, car title loans, installment lenders, check cashers and cash for gold stores having mobile friendly websites.
Lacking a mobile friendly website increases the likelihood that your competitors will take market share from you.
The basics for your business mobile friendly website?
A Click to Call button
A map to your location
A brief description of your services
Your business hours
An incentive for your customer to do business with you; a coupon for example

Mobile websites for brick-n-mortars require your store hours posted!
Presumably you want people to visit your business, and ideally this would be when you’re open. Making your business hours clearly visible on your mobile site is a sure fire way of getting you and your customers in the same place at the same time.
Google recently reported that 70% of consumers are searching for a local business on their smart phone. Think “payday loan 92661” and your website had better look good. No zooming, no scrolling, no hiccups.
A search for “Car title loan 89104” should never force the website visitor to scroll and zoom to find your location. Your website needs two large buttons at a minimum:
A button to click to call your location
A button to click in order to find your location on Google Maps.
In June, Google added a Blog Post announcing that they’re rolling out an update that penalizes websites “that look like crap” on mobile phones. OK! That’s not exactly what the Google rep said :o) The exact quote was, “…performing poorly on mobile devices.”
What’s this mean for YOUR wallet? For your business? It means a solid ranking boost for businesses that have invested in their mobile presence.
91% of adults in the US now have mobile phones and over 60% of those are smartphones; an incredible 80%+ smartphone adoption within the US by 2015. The crazy thing is that the underbanked are more likely to have a smart phone than the rest of the population!
Here’s how Google explained it:
“To improve the search experience for smartphone users and address their pain points, we plan to roll out several ranking changes in the near future that address sites that are misconfigured for smartphone users.”
