These days, you’d be hard pressed to find anyone who doesn’t have a mobile phone. Canadians young and old carry smartphones on their persons each and every day. Our cell phones have practically become appendages! Just ask anyone who has ever misplaced a phone and ask how lost he/she felt without his/her chief source of communication.
Because mobile phones have become chief sources of communication for people from all walks of life, they have become incredibly important business tools. In 2018, business owners from all industries use their cell phones to conduct business in a myriad of ways. Naturally, the good old telephone call is still an important part of everyday work, no matter the type of business. But mobile devices greatly help entrepreneurs who are constantly on-the-go.
Mobile devices help you conduct business anywhere.
In the not-so-distant past, business owners who worked outside of their offices and in remote locations would miss their important calls. Their callers would have to leave messages on answering machines delaying the process of many a business deal. Without mobile phones, communication slows. And one of the main reasons for this is that the modern day smartphone does a whole lot more than make phone calls.
By utilizing the mobile phone to take advantage of various built-in features and social media apps, business owners are able to communicate with colleagues, clients and co-workers in ways there were once unimaginable. Today, our phones allow us to send and receive emails, make posts to our Facebook pages and Twitter accounts and store important files and photos for later use. Mobile phones allow business owners to be online 24/7 – a hugely important trait for any modern-day business.
Nearly all smartphone users are online.
“With 99.5 percent of smartphone and tablet owners using their devices to access web content and information, business owners, brand marketers, and other professionals have to embrace the web to reach their audience,” says MobileActive.org, “Mobile innovations are leading businesses into new levels of productivity, connectivity, and discovery.”
The website goes on to highlight the fact that mobile phones make business owners better communicators. “One of the key components for succeeding in today’s fast-paced world is creating and maintaining business relationships,” the site notes, “This has become much easier with the advent of social media networks like Facebook and LinkedIn. With a smartphone, you can easily access these platforms via apps and effectively maintain conversations with your brand’s audience.”
