In July 2014, I and multiple members of our Acorn IS Team personally combed through and reviewed all our Acorn IS clients and their Websites to see if you have a Mobile presence for your Mobile Users.
If you have already proceeded with developing a Mobile website you may ignore this email notification, otherwise please keep reading...
You do not have a Mobile Site.
You NEED one to stay in Business.
On Tuesday, November 18, 2014 Google released an update to their Mobile Search results that literally "EXPOSES" sites that are NOT Mobile Friendly by NOT giving them the new "Mobile-Friendly" display tag. Read More...
- In the USA, 94% of people with smartphones search for local information on their phones.
- Interestingly, 77% of mobile searches occur at home or at work, places where desktop computers are likely to be present.
Bottom Line, you are going to lose Mobile Business as today's Mobile surfer begins to recognize these tags, and they begin to click on Mobile-Friendly sites instead of sites that are not Mobile-Friendly and thus have no indicator.
If you don't understand why you need to have a Mobile Presence, I (or one of our Acorn IS team members) will be happy to meet with you and look at your mobile statistics and show you why MOBILE is a must have and also answer any questions you may have about going Mobile.
On a Personal Note: If we didn't care so very much about our clients and the success of their own businesses, and firmly believe that Mobile is the way of the future, we would never have invested hours and hours of investigation to know which of our clients didn't have a mobile site.
Please, don't ignore this warning. It's that important.
