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.
