More and more, small business owners are doing whatever it takes to get ahead. That includes conducting business out of the office and on their smart phones. According to this survey, 33 percent of small business owners said they use smart phones “very often” while 41 percent say the use them “somewhat.” Most use the device in an effort to get their companies more business, while others use them merely as a resource to conduct day-to-day tasks. Only a minute margin, 3 percent, of owners said they don’t use smart phones at all.
Clearly, this shows that small businesses and their owners are adapting to the economy and find that using smart phone devices increases productivity and profitability. Additionally, they are showing their smarts by recognizing that consumers are becoming increasingly more influenced by mobile intelligence. This type of adaptation is the reason why so many small businesses thrive. Small business innovation creates urgency among business owners to choose what tools to incorporate into their practices. What technology will take you to the next level? Decisions, decisions.
