Small Business Advocate Poll: How much do you rely on a smartphone?

The Question:
Not counting calls, how much do you rely on a smartphone for texting, email, music, social media, books, or accessing online content like news, videos, etc?

12% - It’s my primary device, every day, all day

16% - Increasingly for more tasks

56% - It supplements my PC when out of the office

16% - Zero - don’t own a smartphone

My Comments:
The primary thing to take away from this survey response is that more than eight of 10 of our respondents use a smartphone. That should be a wake-up call for small businesses that don’t have a mobile strategy for attracting and serving customers. I’ll have more to say about this in an upcoming post. Stay tuned.
