A recent Pew study found that 55 percent of U.S. adults use their mobile phone to go online, but according to research done by both Google and their mobile partner DudaMobile, less than 10% of small businesses currently have a mobile site.
So why are small business owners reluctant to create a mobile website? According to a report released today by the Center for an Urban Future (CUF) in New York, age may have something to do with it. The CUF reports that the older the business owner, the less likely his or her New York business will have a Web presence at all, much less a mobile-friendly website.
It is more important than ever for small businesses to embrace mobile technology if they are to remain competitive. We are in a digital age and adopting technology tools will help level the playing field for small businesses.
