In January/February 2012 Edison Research and Arbitron conducted a survey to find out what Smartphone users where up to. This is where we’re gong to start. You already know how some people don’t even own a computer and totally rely on their mobile device and after you review these slides you’re gong to know what they’re up to.
The Smart Phone Market
The fist thing we’ll look at is the Smartphone market. How big it is, the rate of growth and what platform is winning the race.
In case you don’t know, a Smartphone is like a hand held computer. I like to call it a Tricorder (like in Star Trek) because that’s where it’s headed.
People love this kind of convenience and so it’s not any surprise to find that 50% of all phone are Smartphones. It’s a growing trend (40% a year) and the Google Android phone seems to be in front of the pack.
Smartphone Owners and Income Levels
Its no surprise that a majority of Smartphone owners are under the age of 34 but the higher up on the income ladder the more likely you’ll find a smart phone owner. People with disposable income to spend.
What Smartphone Owners Do With their Phone
They’re browsing the web and using their smart phone as much as they’re watching Television!
More on Smartphone Users and Social Networking
Social networking and specifically Facebook are very influential when it comes to making buying decisions. Meaning, that you need to have a strong Facebook presence and you should encourage and give them opportunity and reason to talk about you.
Video, Video, Video, Video
There is a love affair between internet users and video and close to half of all Smartphone owners are likely to share a video. This means that your company absolutely needs to have a presence on YouTube.
Not Being Mobile Could Cost Your Business Leads, Prospects & Sales

Your mobile presence has to cater to the psychology of the mobile web browser as they’re often in their car, walking down the street or jut plan in a hurry.
So Why Does Your Business Needs to be Mobile?
This is not rocket science. You need to be mobile because that’s where your prospects and customers are.
If you want your business to be located in front of buying traffic now and in the future, then developing a mobile presence is not an option, it’s a necessity.
