You’re so right. the facts don’t lie, if you are optimized for mobile users, you may be out the game.
I know I use my phone for almost everything- looking up the phone number for a local business, facts on recent events, etc and I can’t recall the last time I went to my computer or looked through the yellow pages for something….in other words…mobile marketing is where it’s at.

Mobile marketing is one hot potato…

I never really tried it but I have been on the back end of others marketing this way. One I run across everyday is the marketing of different companies when listening to my favorite music on Pandora.

So this goes to show it works, its out there and people are cashing in on it. Great post – this really brings home on the big market that is out there when you market via mobile devices.
