That bridges over nicely to something I mentioned in a recent live show. Traditional desktop searching is changing rapidly. The way people are consuming the internet is changing. And as a business owner, it’s vital that you stay on top of these changes so that you’re not left in the dust. Mobile marketing is not just the future of marketing, it’s the NOW of marketing.

More and more people own mobile devices and use them for a majority of their internet searches.

And make sure and stop by my live show at BusinessInnerCircle.com on Tuesday nights for training on local marketing and advertising.

    Definitely mobile now that the iPad has arrived! I am a mac girl, so I don’t think I’ll be buying a pc based device, but it is great to have the choice.

    Great insight as to what the future holds.

    Thanks,
