A 2015 study by “Smart Insight” indicated that 80% of internet users use smartphones. One important 2016 business trend is the increase in use for mobile apps in business.  Is your business ready to reach out to mobile users? Do you, as a business owner, realize the importance of reaching out to mobile app audience?

3 Ways To Reach Mobile Users

  1. Get a customized mobile app
  2. Business directory apps
  3. Content

The later two ways are more cost effective and doable for small businesses to reach mobile users.  There are plenty of apps that provide local directory listings.  Find the app that is wide spread in your area and subscribe to get your business listed there.

(For a Greater Toronto business listing I would recommend to download and subscribe to OSBN mobile app “Business Directory”: iphone: http://apple.co/1LC8X6Z  Android:  http://bit.ly/1OHOy7t)

It is very difficult to stand alone and watch a growth curve rise in a small business.  Small businesses thrive and flourish when they reach out to others. Whether it be through building a network of connections or a circle of strategic partners; there has to be collaboration of some kind to watch a business grow and observe the growth curve move to the top.

3 paybacks for choosing the right strategic partners

  1. Learning
  2. Sharing
  3. Growth

Worthwhile strategic partners are rare to find. They may occasionally cross the path of a small business, but its up to the business owner to grab the opportunity or waste the chance to walk along side a partnership that will bring business growth.
