Business owners today should keep abreast with mobile technology to reach their target market. This a must as the number of people using mobile devices worldwide continues to increase.
Latest data from the Global Web Index revealed that 80 percent of people now use smartphones to search the internet. Another research done in 2014 by comScore found that majority of consumers these days are so-called “multi-screening” or accessing retails sites on mobile or desktop.
