Smartphones are the new ‘Travel Guide’
This year will be different and it offers a huge opportunity for businesses that are prepared. In years past, people planned their trips in advance and carried travel guides with them to help them locate restaurants, hotels, products and services and points of interest. That is changing; they’re leaving their travel guides at home. Oh, and they’re leaving their laptops at home too. Why should you care about this?
The smartphone opportunity
Chances are you do not yet have a mobile-friendly website – this means that your website does not look good on the small screen of a smartphone. But don’t worry; your competitors are most likely in the same boat as you. There is a window of opportunity right now that could pay huge dividends to your business if you act quickly. If you want to see what your website looks like on a smartphone, see our ‘Smartphone Simulator‘.
