iKirco is a family owned and operated business here in the beautiful city of Chapel Hill, North Carolina. It has seen many transformations over the years. It started off as a “one man show” by delivering FORTRAN and COBOL programs for government agencies. Over the years it has evolved from delivering top-notch Java apps and .NET applications to now, where well over 50% of our business is in developing mobile applications for small to medium sized businesses.
Mobile traffic is exploding as people have the need and desire to have access to other people and information as they move out and about in this “fast paced” world of ours. In addition, Google has decided to favor mobile websites, so if you happen to notice your business dropping off this might very well be the reason why… Here’s how it works:
1) A person searches for “tow trucks Dallas” for example.
2) If there is a mobile website present, Google will put this towards the top of the listing for this search term.
3) If not, this non-mobile friendly website will be down (and perhaps way down) in the search results.
4) Studies show customers will click on those links towards to the top of the listing.
So, in other words, if you are in Dallas and own “ABC Tow Trucking” and don’t have a mobile website, but “Joe’s Tow Trucking” in Dallas does…you will probably lose business to good ole’ Joe … 🙂
