Is the mobile phone the new BFF?
The mobile phone has changed the way we work, live and play. It goes everywhere we go and leaving home without it can be a disaster.
In fact, 66% of people in the UK suffer from nomophobia, which is a fear of being without a mobile phone. (SecurEnvoy)
The mobile phone is an incredible device – you’re holding the future. What other device can plug you into social media, take photos, watch videos, play music, games, browse the web – and of course let you make a phone call or send and receive text messages. You literally have the world at your fingertips, in a phone that is no bigger than the hand that holds it.
This not only makes it a best friend for life, but a very powerful marketing tool for any business with a desire to connect with its customers.
Think about the following:
- Your customers will have a mobile phone.
- They will open and read text messages.
98% of all texts messages are opened in under 5 seconds. (Frost & Sullivan)
Mobile devices top the list of media for having the greatest impact on our purchasing decisions.
