It took some time but small businesses are finally seeing the power in going mobile. A new infographic from Constant Contact shows that over three-quarters (77%) of small businesses are now using mobile technology, an 11% jump from 2013.
One of the biggest areas of growth is the mobile optimized website. Last year, only 34% of SMBs were mobile ready. This year, it’s 60%. And additional 32% say they’ll have their site optimized within the next six months.
It’s a huge mind-set change and you can see it in these two numbers.
- In 2013, 28% of small business owners said they had no plans to optimize their website for mobile.
- In 2014, only 8% said no to mobile optimization.
