It is unfortunate that most local businesses are missing a lot by ignoring (or not knowing) how mobile-friendly websites can generate more sales and profits.

Small businesses can now compete with big business through the use of Mobile marketing, online videos, Text messages, and E-mails. Half of the small businesses online have increased client relations through Social media, and 85% of customers enjoy getting comments from Social media sites.
Small business is approaching marketing much differently today. While over 75% of them still include print advertising in their marketing efforts, over 90% find e-mails effective. In addition, 95% are involved in website marketing and almost 75% reach-out through Social media. This shows the result of the new style of new marketing efforts.

Producing your own videos and publishing them worldwide is extremely easy, which puts this kind of exposure within the reach of any business, no matter how small.
