This year, there’s a great holiday marketing tool to add to your arsenal and it’s called a mobile website.

Why build a mobile website? Here are some great reasons:

  • Two out of three Americans have the ability to browse the Internet while away from their home which means that they can make buying decisions and look for places to shop while on the go;
  • 39% of mobile users use their device to send messages to a business to get more information and you do not want to miss the opportunity to receive those messages; and
  • A whopping 84% of surveyed small businesses with a stand-alone mobile website have seen an increase in new business as a result.

The step-by-step video below will help you get your mobile site up-and-running for this holiday season.
